Grammy Award-winning rapper TI is back behind bars and in prison after a ride in a luxury bus from Arkansas to a halfway house in Atlanta.
The rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, was released from prison and sentenced to a halfway house to serve his remaining time.
However, it seems that the countless Twitter posts made by TI about his freedom, and the fact that the film crew from VH1 was following him in a luxury bus to begin a new reality show prompted federal authorities to put him back behind bars.
The rapper’s release date from prison is September 29, Burke said.
According to Steve Sadow, TI’s attorney, prison officials had an “issue” with the bus and the entourage the entertainer used to travel from Arkansas to Atlanta.
“We are awaiting the opportunity to quickly resolve whatever the issue may be that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has with T.I.’s method of transportation — bus — from Arkansas to Atlanta, so that T.I. can return to the halfway house to complete the remaining days of his sentence,” Sadow said in a statement.
TI was sentenced in October 2010 to 11 months in prison for violating the terms of his probation on federal gun charges after he was arrested on suspicion of possessing the drug ecstasy.
It was his second stint behind bars in three years. The second being the worse since he already did a reality series on VH1 to teach kids how to stay out of trouble with the law. It was only a few months after the show that TI was arrested and sent back to prison.
