Update: T.I. To Turn Himself Into Federal Prison Today

The day has finally arrived. Atlanta rap giant T.I. is scheduled to report to federal corrections prison in Forrest City, Arkansas today for his weapons conviction.

According to the Associated Press a roadblock has been set up around the prison complex awaiting the rapper’s arrival. While Tip was supposed to turn himself by noon, as of press time it is unclear if he has arrived yet. [Editor's note: see update below]

Traci Billingsley, a spokeswoman for the The U.S.’s federal prison system, said that Tip would not be receiving any special treatment once incarcerated despite his celebrity status.

Sentenced to a year and one day behind bars, the Grand Hustle will be eligible for an early release – most likely 10 months – if he displays good behavior. Once free he will still have to serve two more months on house arrest, 470 hours of community service and will be on probation for three years. Tip has already spent 305 days on home confinement, over 1,500 hours of community service and $100,000 in fines. – Elan Mancini

Update: TMZ reports that T.I. checked himself into the prison earlier than his 12 p.m. deadline.

  • Tre

    Some of you dudes is cry babies. And for you dummies yelling snitch, go read about the case, then come back and tell us all, who did TI snitch on? Since you know this for sure. Fucking idiots!

    Dude never asked for a reduced sentence.

    And say what you want, but nobody….I MEAN NOBODY would put a snitch in general population. Thats asking for the nigga to get killed

    Again, go find out who TI snitched on and then let us all know.

    Til then, shut the fuck up!!

  • BeerGangsta

  • Luv

    The internet got a majority of you niggas hiding behind your words. Some of the shit i have read is plain ignorant in these blogs. You can really tell who the trill niggas are and who phony. Like T.i said when you the fuckin boss who else is it to tell on. This man made a mistake and taking full responsibility for it; thats what trill niggas do. Real niggas in these streets know when you in the dope game, carrying pistols, or just out there on some shit you dont need to be on, its consequences behind that partna. Tip fuck these niggas, thats whats wrong with niggas today, always want to see a nigga down.

  • Devon

    • LB

      Dude, Rikers isn’t a prison-per say; it’s a big ass jailhouse…that may be less accomodating than most jails, slighter more accomodating than some of the worst prisons.

  • Epinz

    @tre
    We’ve gottin into it b4 in regards to this subject!u already know I thnk he sniched on the ngga who killed his boy but I dnt necessarily look at him as a snich. But regardless, I’ve been in prison and sniches R put in population. They dnt classify u as snich when u get there, a snich has to check in(p.c) to b moved.

    • umhi21

      @Epinz, Tre, n da discussion w/e

      T.I. gave his testimony of what occured in a situation from his point of view…He never snitched or told on a particular person in court, never said any certain person was responsible for da events, he told a story of what happened when his long-time friend was killed and never mentioned who he thought was involved or guilty, no names….so even if da 2 cases are linked and da testimony was included in da deal in any way, don’t matter who cares? it is what it is: no snitchin or names in a testimony

  • thekingofkush

    According to TMZ, TI turned himself in early…

  • Tre

    @Devon

    And I quote “I otha go to jail so I can rape this nigga myself make him my bitch so we can go to cali wit the rest of those west coast fags and get married”

    Really? You didn’t really do much to prove my point as far as some( again I said some ) of you niggas who post are fuckin retarded

    @Epinz

    I respect what you have to say simply based on the fact that you approached it in a manner that I can understand. Now we can disagree and it’s all good. But I need evidence that the two cases you spoke on are linked

    But this dud Devon is dumb as shit

  • epinz

    @tre
    i feel u. its more of my opinion on the matter and the fact that he did testify in court. if u look at everythng that happnd as a whole,it makes sence. i thnk that if it happnd that way,eventually it will come out. i dnt think i give enouph of a shit to really look into it. i just drop comments on this shit to have a decent convo while im at work.(bb storm all day baby!!!!)

  • Tre

    @Epinz

    Yeah thats whats up

  • $ykotic

    Good luck Tip.

    Can someone open the Mike Vick forum, XXL?

  • ceezy4seezy

    oh great another did t.i snitch or not thread i’m outta here

    “leaves and starts bumping asap”

  • dark vanilla

    He’ll only serve a month. If Game can only serve 8 days of a 60 day sentence, you know T.I. won’t serve that many months.

  • ceezy4sheezy

    naw he in the feds he gotta do a least 10 months 80% of your time

    games case wasn’t federal that’s why he got out so early

    • Nehemiah

      Not only was it Federal but he was already a convicted Felon so it was a repeat offense. His lawyer worked hard though to get him a reduced sentence by making him pay for fines and the Judge liked the idea that because he was famous they could make him an example to younger offenders and by doing those Public services it reduced his sentence further.

  • Nehemiah

    Man yall need to stop with that snitchin BS. The system is designed to have dumb muthafuckas cryin about who snitched on who. Once the government got u by the balls u tell me who aint gonna say something? Even bosses talk. So stop worrying about who said what and start worrying about what the Fuck you doin cuz when u committed the crime u knew that there was a chance of getting caught. The Law goin catch up with u because like I said its a system designed to control people. If u want to beat the system u need to know the system so study them law books!
