THIS JUST IN: Rapper T.I. halfway home!

Filed under : Entertainment, Pop Culture

According to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Atlanta rapper Clifford “T.I.” Harris Jr. (also known as Tip), was released from prison Tuesday morning after serving about 7 months at a low-security penitentiary in Forrest City, Arkansas. He is expected to serve the remainder of a reduced sentence in a correctional center near Fulton County Airport. T.I.’s lawyer, Steve Sadow said prisoners sentenced to 366 days are eligible for a 54-day sentence reduction for good behavior.

Steve also told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution that the rapper is expected to report to Dismas Charities Atlanta West in Georgia. T.I will remain at the halfway house for about three months and will have to abide by the rules of that particular house.

Tip was sentenced to a year and a day in prison for weapons charges resulting from an October 2007 incident when he was arrested for sending a bodyguard to purchase machine guns and silencers.

T.I. with his sons!

This is a great Christmas gift for his family….but do you think his early release is fair? Let us know!
