Good news for T.I. fans: The rap star, also known as Tip, is scheduled to be released from prison on Sept. 29. The rapper’s release date is posted on the Federal Bureau of Prisons website.

T.I. has been languishing at the Arkansas Federal Correctional Institution since December. He was arrested in Los Angeles last September with his new wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, formerly of the female group Xscape, on suspicion of drug possession and was on probation at the time; he had recently finished a 10-month prison term on federal weapons charges.

The arrest and subsequent sentencing couldn’t have come at a worse time for T.I. His seventh album ‘No Mercy,’ which was originally titled ‘King Uncaged,’ was released in December while T.I., born Clifford Harris, Jr., was behind bars. According to SoundScan, the record has sold a respectable 502,000 copies, a number that is actually rather impressive since T.I. isn’t really able to do much promotion behind the album, being in jail and all. T.I.’s previous effort, 2008’s ‘Paper Trail,’ yielded hit after hit, namely ‘Live Your Life,’ his ubiquitous collaboration with Rihanna.
