T.I. to Serve Jail Time in Arkansas


With just 11 days until T.I. heads to jail, the King of the South now knows where he will be spending the next year and a day.

According to TMZ, Tip will serve his sentence for weapons charges at a low security prison in Forrest City, Arkansas. He is scheduled to report to the facility by noon on Tuesday, May 26.

He’ll likely have a cellmate, remain in the general population of about 1,500 inmates, and be assigned to work detail.

Before checking himself into prison though, T.I. will shoot a video for “Don’t Forget,” his collaboration with Mary J. Blige. The song is the first single from his Paper Trail rerelease, due this summer.

    I’m from littlerock and I didn’t even know that it was a federal pen in forrest city. Oh god all these local acts gone try to catch a federal charge so they can get a deal with Grand Husla. Damn T.I.

    Feel sorry for him …

    On the brighter note, he looks so sexxed in that picture.


  15. Catie

    Re-releasing “Paper Trail” is pointless. The album was a success and had 4 top ten hits. He should have put the song with Mary J. Blige on an upcoming album.

    I don’t see him serving the full sentence either.
