T.I. Freed From Halfway House
It's official! T.I. is a freed man. According to his attorney, Steve Sadow, the rapper left an Atlanta halfway house early Thursday morning. T.I. spent 11 months in prison for violating the terms of the probation after being arrested on Sept. 1 for possession of a controlled substance.
TMZ was able to catch Tip leaving the facility shortly after midnight. Unlike his Aug. 31 release from federal prison, T.I. slowly walked out of the halfway house and simply jumped into a chauffeur-driven SUV. He didn't speak to any reporters, instead he simply raised his hand to give the peace sign.
T.I.'s journey to freedom was a long and confusing process. After he was released from an Arkansas prison and sent to the halfway house on Aug. 31, prison officials put him back in federal dentention for conducting business with unauthorized individuals on his tour bus. He then returned to the halfway house to serve out the remainder of his sentence on Sept. 15.
Now a freed man, T.I. will reunite with his family and get his priorities in order. The rapper is planning to host his "A King of Oneself” brunch for friends and family on Sunday. Afterward, T.I. will map out his promotional run for his new book ‘Power & Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Streets,’ which arrives on bookshelves on Oct. 18. Then he will start filming his reality show ‘T.I.’s Family Hustle’ for VH1.
