After finishing the remainder of his 11 month sentence at Dismas Charities halfway house in Atlanta, T.I. ‘s lawyer Steve Sadow confirms that T.I.P was officially released this morning. The Kang plans to celebrate his freedom during tomorrow’s welcome home party and then a $100k Sunday brunch.

Earlier this month, T.I. was back and forth from prison and the halfway house due to unauthorized passengers during his commute. This week, we got a little taste of new music from TIP and a studio pic with Pharrell. Hopefully his next song emerges soon. Welcome home Cliff.

From CNN:

Rapper T.I. was released from an Atlanta halfway house Thursday morning, his lawyer said.

The popular hip-hop artist, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., wass serving an 11-month sentence for violating his parole on a gun conviction.

The rapper served two stints in the Arkansas prison. He served seven months there in 2009 as part of an unusual sentence negotiated two years ago to resolve federal gun charges. Those charges followed his attempt to buy three machine guns in the parking lot of an Atlanta grocery store.

His latest time behind bars was triggered by his arrest, along with his wife, after a motorcycle officer stopped their car on Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills, California, a year ago.

A police report said suspected drugs were found in the couple’s car and they were both arrested on drug charges. While the charge against the rapper was later dropped, he failed a drug test given by his parole officer.

When T.I. walked out of prison on August 31, he tweeted, “The storm is over & da sun back out.”

T.I. had been released to a halfway house and briefly returned back to prison after confusion regarding how he got to the halfway house and who was with him.

Lets see if he and Tiny can stay out of trouble this time… Maybe they’ll think twice before doing illegal u-turns in their maybach while smoking a blunt with a bag full of coke and Ecstasy this time… smfh.
