T.I. Removed from Halfway House Over Transportation Incident

Just one day after he was released from Forrest City Federal Prison in Arkansas, T.I. is back in hot water with the law.

As previously reported, Tip was freed from behind bars on Wednesday (August 31), one month earlier than his 11-month sentence on a probation violation for a 2009 gun conviction called for. He was to serve the remainder of his time in a halfway house in his hometown of Atlanta, but according to CNN law enforcement officials were unhappy with the way he in which travelled there.

Apparently, the rap star took a tour bus from Arkansas to the ATL, where he immediately began shooting his new VH1 reality show, which will chronicle his life after prison.

VH1 announced they will be filming a 10-episode series that will debut in December.

“Viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the most private and personal moments of one of today’s hottest, most sought after Grammy winning artists as he is reunited with his wife and kids and thrust back into society at this crucial juncture in his life,” a statement from the network read.

As of press time, it is uncertain where Tip will be headed. The Federal Bureau of Prison’s has him listed as “in transit.”

    Ummm….. How many superstars take tour buses from prison to a half-way house when getting out of prison. Damn! T.I. stay losing. To me, dude has no common sense whatsoever. Starting with his questionable choice for a wife, to his first charge for doing dumb ish, to his second charge for preaching sobriety to young kids and then turning around and getting caught smurfed up with that so-called “excellent” choice of a wife.

    I hate to say it but T.I. is the new Nas. Smart as hell lyrically. But dumb as f*ck in reality.

      He violated the common sense rule, if you headed to a halfway house, you still under competitive custody, you gotta do what they say, shut up and chill. Not invite a camera and film crew, 25 groupies videographers, extended family and your publicist. Dummy

    Hey T.I., maybe you should try this for awhile: think before you act. Also, maybe the people you have around you aren’t exactly the best advice givers or people to be around. Way to be a good role model for all those kids out there that listen to your music, “Hey kids, it’s ok to go to jail, because the second you get out, you get to take a huge tour bus to film a new TV show.” T.I. is one of my favorite rappers, but Come On Man!
