T.I. will be getting out of prison early. The Atlanta rapper received a prison release date that comes one month earlier than originally planned which will be Sept. 29th, 2011.
T.I. will have completed an 11-month sentence for violating his parole. The ‘No Mercy’ creator began serving time on Nov. 1, 2010, after his arrest on drug charges in early September. Police pulled over T.I.’s vehicle in Hollywood during a routine traffic stop after the rapper’s car completed an illegal U-turn.
After stopping T.I., officers claimed they smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle, which caused L.A.P.D. to search for narcotics. Both he and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle were arrested and booked with their bail set at $10,000 each after police found contraband material inside.
