T.I. Barred From Leaving Georgia Upon Release

Published November 10, 2010

T.I. hasn't even been locked up for two weeks and the terms of his release are already coming out.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, 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.

As previously reported, Tip is currently serving an 11-month sentence for probation violation. He was sent back to prison after being arrested when cops found ecstasy, codeine and marijuana in his vehicle in Hollywood. He was already on probation for a gun possession conviction at the time of the arrest. His wife Tiny, who was in the car at the time of the arrest, entered a not guilty plea after being charged for possession of ecstasy. She's due back in court January 6.
