T.I. Will Reportedly Not Be Released From Prison This Week

August 30, 2011


UPDATE: Tip’s lawyer says that reports that he will be released to a halfway house this week are false.

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.”
