T.I. released from halfway house

Rapper T.I. (David Goldman - AP)
T.I. was released from an Atlanta halfway house Thursday morning, the Associated Press reports.

The rapper was sentenced to serve 11 months in a federal prison and a halfway house for violating his probation. T.I., real name Clifford Harris, and his wife, Tameka Cottle, were arrested in September 2010 for drug charges.

T.I. was released from prison in late August and sent to a halfway house. But he was taken back into federal custody a short time later after prison officials objected to his mode of transportation: a luxury bus.

By Sept. 15 he had returned to the halfway house, and now he is a free man.

His rep told the AP that he will attend the BET Hip-Hop Awards filming this Saturday. The show is set to air Oct. 11. His entire post-prison drama will be shown on an upcoming VH1 reality show.
