T.I. Probation Information Released

Posted: November 11, 2010 in Hip-Hop

As we know, T.I. is back in jail in Arkansas’ Forest City minimum security prison for violating his probation.  Lil Wayne was recently released and the whole hip-hop world was focused on his first three days free.  Well, when T.I. gets out around October 2011, we can tell you what he’s NOT going to do.  Or at least, what he’s not legally able to do.

Court documents were obtained by TMZ and released on the internet just  days ago regarding T.I.’s new one-year probation terms.

BET.com reports:

one of the terms of Tip’s one-year probation stipulates that the king of the south won’t be able to leave the Northern District of Georgia upon release unless he can prove it’s for “verified employment within the United States,” meaning the rapper won’t be allowed out of the country.

Tip also won’t be able to leave Georgia for more than seven days per month or seven consecutive days. Tip is also barred from driving a vehicle, owning “any firearm, dangerous weapon, or other destructive device” and must submit to drug/alcohol testing and a treatment program.

So basically… no guns, no driving, no drugs or alcohol, no leaving the United States.  The kicker is his confinement to Northern District of Georgia for 23/30 days per month.  It’s going to make touring quite the hassle.  Drugs, alcohol, and guns seem to go hand in hand with most rappers these days, no pun intended.  These probation terms, though harsh, are the best way to attempt to eliminate the problem.

T.I.’s 7th studio album due out December 7th, was changed to “No Mercy” from “King Uncaged” on October 25th.  I guess with the new slew of legal troubles, he didn’t really feel like “Uncaged” would work well in the title if he was actually “caged” in a cell.
