T.I. Is Actually Free Now


It hasn't been an easy road to freedom for T.I. After the rapper was released from a ten-month federal prison stint in August, he promptly hopped onto a luxury bus and began filming a VH1 documentary, an action that promptly placed him back in prison — and ultimately, a halfway house — for transacting business on the bus, a violation of his parole. (And since T.I. was serving that ten-month sentence for another parole violation, you'd think he'd be extra sensitive to this sort of thing.) This morning, though, T.I. was finally released from his additional incarceration, and this time he departed in a considerably less flamboyant chauffeur-driven town car. Keep it modest for a little while, T.I.! [ArtsBeat/NYT]
