BET announced today (June 4) that T.I. will join the performance line-up for their 2010 BET Awards Show which will be broadcast live from Los Angeles on June 27.

This will be Tip’s first televised performance since he was released from prison. T.I. was arrested in Atlanta on federal gun charges hours before he was scheduled to perform at the 2007 BET Hip Hop Awards.

Hosted by Queen Latifah, this year’s show will also feature performances by Nicki Minaj, Drake, Trey Songz, and Diddy-Dirty Money.
