T.I. is almost a free man. The Atlanta rapper has completed his prison sentence stemming from a 2007 arrest, but still faces a curfew.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons records, Clifford “T.I.” Harris has fulfilled 10 months of a 366-day sentence. He spent the past 30 days under house arrest after serving time in a halfway house earlier this year. While he is allowed to leave the confines of his home, he must abide by certain restrictions. For the next 23 days, he will be required to be home by 11 p.m. unless he’s working, which extends the curfew to 1 a.m.
Tip was sentenced in May 2009 after being convicted for illegally purchasing weapons. His lawyer Steve Sadow told MTV News that he will be on probation for three years. This includes home incarceration, visits with a probation officer, and pre-approved travel. He must also perform around 400 more hours of community service.
“He’s been working,” Sadow told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “He intends to continue working, which includes being in the [recording] studio and performing concerts.”
Fans have missed the absent King of the South as indicated by the success of his buzz single “I’m Back,” which made an impressive debut at No. 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. He is well into recording his next album to be released on August 24. B.o.B and producer Jim Jonsin are among the names on board.
Despite his disinterest in Twitter, it looks like Tip has caved and joined the Twitterati. He posted what appears to be a personal tweet on his page. His first order of business? Lunch at Ruth’s Chris Steak House with girlfriend Tiny.
The King is back.
