The rapper, who had begun filming his new “redemption” reality show for Vh1 immediately after being freed from jail, will now remain in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Atlanta until September 29th.
T.I’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, cited that the situation stemmed from the rapper using a luxury bus to report to a halfway house in which he was scheduled to serve the final 4 weeks of his 11-month prison term. Read all the details below:
