Last March, rapper T.I. was sentenced to 366 days in prison for a felony weapons charge and yesterday he was released after serving seven months in an Arkansas federal prison. He will serve the remainder of his sentence in a halfway house near Atlanta which, according to his attorney Steve Sadow, will “assist him with reentering society.”
T.I. was arrested in October 2007 for attempting to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers. (Who needs those things? Seriously, who??) The bust occurred just before T.I. was set to appear at the BET Hip-Hop Awards. Between him and Chris Brown, we’re beginning to think that maybe musicians need better babysitting before big award shows to keep them out of trouble.
In addition to spending three more months in the halfway house, T.I. will have to commit to 500 hours of community service and several weeks of home confinement. [Photo: GettyImages]
