T.I.'s Prison Release Projected for September


Clifford Harris Jr., better known as the rapper T.I., is projected to be released from federal prison on Sept. 29 after serving an 11-month sentence.

As first reported by Rap Radar, the Federal Bureau of Prisons website states that T.I. will leave the Arkansas Federal Correctional Institution a little over one year after he was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of drug possession last September. The rapper was previously on probation after serving a 10-month stint in the Arkansas prison on federal weapons charges.

T.I.'s seventh studio album, "No Mercy," was released while the rapper was incarcerated last December and has since moved 502,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. On the day of the album release, T.I. issued a letter from prison thanking his fans for their support.

"It doesn't matter how long it'll be before the next time you see me. What matters is that I'll be a better man before that time comes," he wrote. "The longer I sit, the smarter I get."
