*UPDATED* IT'S A CELEBRATION BITCHES: T.I. RELEASED FROM PRISON TODAY!



According to Sandrarose.com, rapper Clifford “T.I.” Harris was sent back to federal prison yesterday (September 1) after being released from an Arkansas prison just 1 day earlier.

T.I. will serve out the remainder of his 11-month sentence at The United States Penitentiary in Atlanta, Georgia. He is expected to be released on September 29 of this year.
According to published reports, rapper T.I. was moved to the federal
Penitentiary in Atlanta on Thursday, one day after being released from an Arkansas prison where he served 11 months for violating his probation.
The rapper’s lawyer Steve Sadow told The Associated Press that the Federal Bureau of Prisons “moved T.I. to a different facility” because of an issue involving the rapper’s mode of transportation from Arkansas to Atlanta in a gleaming motor coach. 
But back in December 2009, a similar customized tour bus was hired to transport T.I. from the same Arkansas prison where he served seven months on federal weapons charges to a halfway house in Atlanta. So the issue isn’t so much the luxury tour bus, but what occurred on board the tour bus that prison officials objected to. 
Also at issue, according to our source, was the fact that “arrangements” had been made between the cable network and a worker at the Dismas Charities halfway house to allow filming of T.I. inside the facility. 
But a higher-up at Dismas Charities told TMZ there is “absolutely no way” the facility will allow VH1 to bring cameras INSIDE the halfway house… saying, “no, it is just not going to happen. To read more on this story head over to Sandra Rose.
According to  TMZ, rapper Clifford "T.I." Harris was released from an Arkansas prison today (August 31) at 7:29 am, after being sentenced to 11 months in prison for violating his 2009 (gun possession) probation by being arrested for drug possession in Hollywood last year, and later failing a urine test.

T.I. will serve out the remainder of his sentence (1 month) at a community living facility  non-p.c. term is half-way house.

T.I. took to his Twitter page shortly after his release to share the good news with his fans.
