T.I. has reportedly surrendered himself to the authorities to begin his prison sentence.
The Dead And Gone rapper is thought to have turned himself into the Forrest City, AR federal facility this morning to begin his eleven month sentence.
After previously serving time in prison for illegal weapon charges, Tip was readmitted to jail after being arrested for drug possession along with his wife, Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle, which violated terms of his probation.
According to TMZ.com, the rapper, real name Clifford Harris, will receive no special treatment because of his celebrity status, and will be known as inmate #59458-019.
He will also have to wear a prison uniform khaki pants and shirt with black shoes.
Tip posted a final goodbye on Twitter before his surrender, tweeting: “Hey yall #teamTI will be holding me down on this front with updates until I return. Thx for your continued support. In a minute….#NoMercy.”
T.I.’s wife still faces charges for drugs and is scheduled to appear in court today, with reports suggesting she could receive up to year behind bars.
So Lil Wayne’s released to tomorrow as T.I. goes back in – one rapper in, another one out.
