BREAKING NEWS: T.I. Released From Prison, Escorted To Halfway House
Sources from Atlantic Records recently confirmed with BET that T.I. has been released from prison. The news comes to a surprise to the entire industry as T.I. was slated to serve at least three more months at the Arkansas Forrest City prison.
The source from Atlantic Records confirmed with BET News’ Sharon Carpenter that the rapper was abruptly released from the facility and is currently in route to Atlanta to serve the rest of his time in a half way house.
Steve Sadow confirmed with XXLMag.com earlier this month that TIP might see an early release but it would be decided by the Federal Bureau of Prisons to rule the fate of the decision.
“Now it is up to the [Federal] Bureau of Prisons to decide whether someone should be placed in a halfway house prior to the projected release date,” Sadow told XXL. “The Bureau of Prisons can do that and typically does it either a month before, or two months before… as much as six months before the projected release date.”
Details on T.I.’s release are extremely sketchy at this moment, but check back with BET.com for more details on this story.
