T.I. Jail Sentence Clarified, Rapper Will Be Locked Up For Over Two Months

The Associated Press reported yesterday that because T.I. has been given credit for the 305 days that he spent on house arrest, he will probably only spend two months behind bars for federal gun charges. MTV News spoke to a representative for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Georgia to confirm the reports0.

According to spokesperson Charysse Alexander, the media misread the sentence breakdown. Tip, who was sentenced to one year and one day in March, will indeed be given credit for his days on house arrest but that will not count towards his time behind bars. Instead it will go towards his home confinement record, where he still owes two more months once he gets out of prison.

As far as his jail time, Tip will most likely get 55 days taken away from his sentence, if he doesn’t cause any problems in the facility. Any prisoner sentenced to a year is eligible to get 15% taken off.

As previously reported T.I. will turn himself in to the Forrest City federal prison in Little Rock, Arkansas on May 26. He will be a part of the general population, joining 1,5000 other inmates.

The Atlanta rap giant’s rep told XXLMag.com yesterday that Tip will finish shooting two new music videos this week, both to be included in the re-issue of Paper Trail this summer. – Elan Mancini

    • 619

      Be real, 2 months for a felon with priors caught up on a federal gun charge. DO THE MAFUCKIN’ MATH! How many strikes do they allow down South? If Atlanta wasn’t the gay capital of the U.S. and didn’t have so many damn rednecks, I would move to Georgia just to get away with some shit. If I could only take the weather, palm trees, taco shops, beaches, and swap meets with me.

  • CLJ

    three things T.I. did to get two months #1 big money #2 good lawyer #3 snitch

    You brothers are some funny muhfukkas. I think you like the way the word “snitch” rolls of ya tongue. Aint nuttin in the pen but slaves. If given yo black ass up gone keep me free, especially when you seem to favor being locked up over freedon any damn way, then I’m a snitchin ass muhfukker…Free to fukk yo womens, smoke yo weed, and enjoy life to the fullest….fukk being locked up…

  • jbird

    If TIP was gangsta he’da took this to the chin and did the 20 upstate. A snitch is a snitch, now tell me that don’t go wit TIP. He ain’t gotta wear no wire, he DRY snitchin. Meanin he just talk bout peeps and that’s that.
    Bitch TIP-ass suckerin out and tryin not to go to prison. Thought G’s say ‘lock me up’?

    • LB

      And let me guess…you just DYIN to take yo ass to prison, huh bruh?

    • RDS

      I don’t understand why ya’ll care so much. Who gives a shit? If I copped a couple Grammy’s, made a cool couple mil, had several platinum plaques and had worked with some of the biggest names in modern rap, both behind the boards and behind the mic, would I really give a flying fuck what half of ya’ll thought about my sentencing? The answer starts with an “N” and ends with an “O”, simple as that.

      I’ll admit the dude’s a hypocrite at times (can’t tell if it’s T.I. talking or TIP half the damn time), but all this speculation about what dude did and what he didn’t do and not a single one of you can prove it. I’m no stan, but come the fuck on…not a single solitaire e-soul on this blog has TIP’s money nor knows nor can afford his lawyers and whoever the hell else he needs to make this shit go away. Has anyone here actually dealt with a high-powered lawyer? I know how much a dude is ‘sposed to get over x amount of priors with x type machinery, etc, etc, yadda yadda, but Johnny Cochran got OJ’s ass off scott-the-fuck free and this negro murdered a white woman and faced plenty of sympathizers against him. And not one of you has brought that up except the dude way up there.

      Again, I know what he SHOULD’VE gotten, but dudes need to stop with the gossip and the hootin’ and hollerin’ about what he might’ve done as if it’s been factually proven. My point has been and will continue until otherwise proven wrong, to be nobody here was actually in the room with TIP to know for sure what actually happened. Nobody here knows a single factual thing, so until somebody actually proves he snitched, let the nigga nuts go and move on with your lives. Get off the internet and get some fresh air for a change.

    good news. the game wouldnt b the same without tip…

  • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

    I understand now why TIP is hustling so hard for this album. All sales profits are going to his defense team.

    Hell, they earned it.

    Don’t know if he snitched or not, don’t care. I just know that he has no business getting into “street” activity ever again.

    Stick to the music, Cliff.

    What’s up with the album reissue, though? Milking that cow to the bone.

  • Soul

    How is it possible for TIPto be a snitch when He was set up..? You internet gangstas are proof the music industry is dying!! Fucc Boi

    • 619

      A set up and a federal investigation for a two month sentence? Yeah, that really sounds likely. hahaha. Mafuckers gettin’ two months for bull shit, c’mon man you can’t be that gullible.

  • Ken

    yall fools know better than I do, if you was in that position you would do best for what is better for yourself, fuck everyone else you need to look out for yourself at the end of the day, yall need to stop trippin’ with yall selves

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    T.I. is not a snitch, he has money and is really smart. Thats all you need to beat any charge in the U.S. The court system is a major hustle. Lawyers prosecute to the highest extent of the law because they know that you will negotiate for a lower sentence. You don’t have to snitch just keep ur mouth show and cooperate, not snitch. Cooperate does not mean u tell on everybody in the neighborhood. It means you tell ur version of what happen and stick to it. Or better yet get your lawyer or somebody with sense to tell ur version of what happen.

  • pop

    i have to keep it real t.i. snitched but i don’t blame him because if i was in the same situation i would have snitched too that nigga was looking at a lot of time and he was about to lose a lot of money and once he got out of jail he would have no longer been relevant in music so say what you want but i would have told on everybody even the kid who stole money out the teacher’s purse in first grade if it meant only having to serve two months

  • porter

    yo real 95% of yall talkin that t.i. snitched shit gon snitch yall damn self yall aint built like that to those who are yu not included how is everybody on the internet hood?? i bet yall sit down to pee yu dont even piss

  • Young 50

    Yall dudes reading it wrong they are not saying he is only serving two months behind bars. They are saying that he will be given credit for spending time on house arrest and only 55 days are taken off his sentence. 366dys-55=311dys-15% of sentence for good behavior and u looking at 10 months. Thats a slap on the wrist with the shit he was caught with.

  • Tre

    Too many flat out retarded motha fuckas yelling snitch and not actually stating facts.

    You all are got damn retarded!

    You all probably feel like you’re too cool to read outside of this shit(go pick up a fuckin book.

    Matter of fact, since you’re so infatuated with calling niggas snitch, GO DIG UP THE FUCKIN CASE AND TELL THE WORLD WHO TI SNITCHED ON!!!!!! UNTIL THEN PLEASE!!!!!!! SHUT THE FUCK UP!!

    • ThaKemizt

      I’ve read the ATF affidavit. Caught red-handed buying 2 submachine guns with silencers for both and a pistol, caught with another loaded pistol in the car, and got the crib raided for something like 2 more rifles and another pistol. No, nothing in there about snitching, but it still begs the question, “How?”.

  • 92FS

    Somebody get me his lawyer’s contact info. immediately!

  • Major (not T.I.’s son, fuckers. That’s my name.)

    Niggas is stupid, b.
    First of all, most ya’ll niggas yellin’ “snitch” never caught a case. Ever. So sit your punk asses down, cause if you ever DO have the unfortunate opportunity to catch one, I bet ya’ll would be BEGGIN’ to put somebody else under the bus for your shit. Look at Alfamega. He prolly DID time before and was like “I ain’t goin back” (trust me… incarceration ain’t fun), “this nigga did this, this, and this.” Unfortunately for him, he’s been stripped of his “real nigga” status because of it.

    Secondly, T.I. is rich as fuuuck. And famous. I hardly knew who the fuck O.J. Simpson was in ’94 (I was in elementary), but he got off for (alleged) murder. Elementary school kids know who T.I. is. He did not commit a violent crime. (He was gathering resources in case he NEEDED to commit a violent crime.) Celebrities get sweetheart deals anyway, so the judge figured “let’s turn this negative into a positive.”
    Is it fair? Not really, cause if any of US was a 7-time felon and got caught with a personal armory, we’d be UNDER the jail. But it is what it is. Hopefully he learns from it.

    Now if he’d gotten 2 months, I’D be pissed, and I’m a fan. Fair is fair, nigga.

  • Tha Sauce

    To snitch you first have to have something to tell right? I’m still trying to figure out what and who the hell he snitched to? Fill me in

  • http://xxl gside

    That nigga told face it . I know a lot of people that’s done Fed time for shit like this and there still doing it people get less time in R.I.C.C.O cases than gun cases. IF it was powder coke and he got 9 months I be like a right I can go for that . Feds you get caught with dope and 10 Years that’s with a plea and you homeboy that’s riding with you and he do 12 and you little homie get’s 5 and he tells because the older nigga ain’t tell him how much dirty they really was doing . Nigga who get 1 year in the fed are white collar criminal’s or working with the Feds period.

  • stoneyisland

    I am sick of all you cyber gangstas and thugs talking this snitch shit! T.I was fortunate enough to have shit load of paper and could afford a damn good lawyer, regardless to what you uneductaed niggas might think, he would not have gotten the sentence he did if the DA had a rock solid case. All this side talk shit about how he should have not cut a deal is just plain retarded! any man who would willingly go to prison for another dude is either crazy or likes dick. TIP did what any reasonable person would have done and thats called self preservation, look it up you dumb muthafucka’s if you dont know what it means.

  • twes

    This is a prime example of a fake nigga, someone up there said he aint snitch he just cooperated lol where Im from you do not cooperate with the police that is snitchn and am I the only person that saw T.I take the stand in the murder trial of his best friend, before he got caught with the guns he wasnt testifying in that case and the lawyer even said that but aint nobody hating on Tip if he can look himself and the mirror n be cool with his decision then fuck it damn hip hop let wayne kiss baby, let Ross be a C.O, lol but I know Vick like damn I got no strikes no priors same state a nigga couldnt get house arrest.

  • TISNITCHED

    @DUDE

    You’re obviously one of the dumb asses who don’t read. This story just cleared up the rumor two his 2 month bid and you still state 2 months.

    Thats what I mean but fucking retards not reading.

    Snitching is public record, shut the fucl up and tell me who he snitched on. Go find it and bring me back the info. Then again, you don’t read or you wouldn’t have posted the shit you just did. Dumb ass

    I’m etherin every nigga who says some bullshit about snitching and not knowing facts

  • Shawty J

    His house arrest counted? Being locked down in that big ass house of his counted as part of his sentence, no offense to Tip but that’s some bullshit, man.
