T.I. will be reportedly released from prison in just a few days.

According to MTV News, Tip, who is currently serving an 11-month sentence in Forrest City Correctional Facility in Georgia, will be moved to a halfway house on August 31st, a month before he was originally supposed to be released from prison on September 29th.

The Grand Hustle honcho entered prison back in November 2010 for violating his probation. He has since been updating fans on his status through his website, most recently posting his last open letter before his release.

UPDATE: According to XXLMag.com, T.I. will not be released from prison tomorrow as previously reported. Tip’s lawyer, Jonathan Leonard, says that the Bureau of Prisons doesn’t release information of prison releases until the very last minute and that “they don’t even cooperate with me and tell me much of anything.”

“The Bureau of Prisons makes all the decisions once [someone goes] into the federal system then the federal prisons is the governing body as to when he’s released, the judge has no control over it,” he explained. “And you don’t have any real contact with them, they don’t communicate with you and they don’t tell you when exactly he’s gonna be released.”

UPDATE #2: According to TMZ, T.I. was released from prison earlier this morning to either home confinement or a community living facility. Chris Burke, spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, says he was released at 7:29 a.m. and is “in transit” to finish out his sentence. Tip also tweeted to let fans know he’s out of prison.

A spokesperson for the Shakur family says “[Afeni Shakur] would never participate in smoking her son.”

Earlier in August, The Outlawz confirmed a rumor stating that they had smoked Tupac Shakur’s ashes. The confirmation has reached the Shakur family and according to TMZ, a family spokesperson says many within the family, including Afeni Shakur, do not approve of the act. 

Among other things, the spokesperson noted that Afeni Shakur would “never participate in smoking her son.” The Outlawz have claimed his mom was present during the smoke session. 

The spokesperson added that if the Outlawz in fact were able to smoke the ashes, they had to go through some obstacles in order to get some of those ashes. 

“[They] would have had to sneak the remains past the family member in charge of keeping an eye on the ashes at the memorial.”

While the family does not appear to condone the act, per statements made to TMZ by this spokesperson, the family also presently does not plan to pursue legal action against The Outlawz.

UPDATE: Death Row Records will release the long-shelved debut album from the onetime Dre protege, while WIDEawake plans new material “My Blood, My Sweat, and My Tear” for October 25 release.

R&B veteran Jewell (a/k/a Jewell Caples) is known for her work alongside iconic Hip Hop stars like Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and 2Pac. The former Death Row Records artist and 26-year vet has announced that she is at work on her upcoming solo debut, Blood, Sweat & Tears as well as an autobiography.

In between her 1992-1996 tenure at Suge Knight and Dr. Dre’s famous Death Row Records, Jewell worked and appeared on classic albums such as The Chronic, Doggystyle and All Eyez On Me. In the 15 years since her departure the Dre protege has worked with Benzino, Tru-Life and pornographic film star Jake Steed’s Rap album.

Another former Death Row female artist, ’00s-era SKG, penned a book last year. Blood, Sweat & Tears will release by Royal Hand Entertainment later this year.

WIDEawake’s Death Row Records imprint will follow, a month later, on November 22, with Jewell’s self-titled Gospel album, the material that was shelved since the 1990s.
