(AllHipHop News) Rap star T.I. is officially a free man, after he was released from an Atlanta area halfway house today (September 29th).
The rapper spent a full year behind bars, for violating the terms of his probation, after he was convicted for attempting to purchase machine guns and silencers, before the BET awards in October of 2007.
In September 2010, just months after his release on the original gun charges, T.I. was stopped in Los Angeles for making an illegal U-turn, while driving his Maybach on the Sunset Strip.
A search of T.I.’s person, revealed that he was carrying ecstasy, in violation of his probation.
In October of 2010, the rapper was sentenced to another 11 months in prison.
T.I. was released from a Forrest City, Arkansas prison on August 31st, but was sent back to a federal prison in Atlanta, after authorities took issue with his mode of transportation to the halfway house.
The rapper, born Clifford Harris Jr., was sent back to the halfway house to complete his sentence on September 15th.
On Sunday (October 2nd), T.I. will host an exclusive brunch at a private location in Atlanta, to celebrate the success of his AKOO Clothing brand, as well as his release from prison.
