T.I. released from prison, gets VH1 reality show


Rapper T.I. (Jamie McCarthy - GETTY IMAGES FOR AXE)
T.I. has been released from prison after serving 10 months for violating his parole.

Click Track reports that the rapper will now head to a halfway house in Atlanta for a month to serve out the rest of his sentence.

“Feels great to be back where I belong...Back in the arms of those who need me the most,” he tweeted after his release. “The storm is over & da sun back out. IT'S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!! Welcome to the beginning of our Happy Ending!!!!”

That “happy ending” will be documented on a reality show set to air in December, VH1 announced today. T.I.’s first novel, “Power & Beauty,” also will be released this October.

Before T.I. (real name Clifford Harris) went to prison, he appeared on his own MTV show, “T.I.’s Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go.” His wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle isn’t a stranger to reality shows either. She starred on her own BET show — “Tiny and Toya” — with Lil’ Wayne’s ex-wife Antonia “Toya” Johnson-Carter.
