Today (November 1) marks the beginning of T.I.’s 11-month stay at Arkansas’ Forrest City federal jail facility.

According to tmz.com the rap superstar checked himself in to authorities earlier this afternoon.

As previously reported, Tip’s probation was revoked last month after he was arrested in September on drug charges and ordered to return to behind bars for breaking the terms of his 2009 federal gun conviction.

The ATLien took to his Twitter account over the weekend to thank his fans for sticking with him. “Hey yall #teamTI will be holding me down on this front with updates until I return,” he wrote. “Thx for your continued support. In a minute....#NoMercy”

The Grand Hustle General’s newly titled album, No Mercy, is expected to hit stores before the end of the year. —Elan Mancini
