Published December 22, 2009

Sources from Atlantic Records have confirmed with BET.com that T.I. has been released from prison. The news comes to a surprise to the entire industry as T.I. was slated to serve at least three more months at the Arkansas Forrest City prison.

The source from Atlantic Records confirmed with BET News’ Sharon Carpenter that the rapper was abruptly released from the facility and is currently in route to Atlanta to serve the rest of his time in a half way house.

“You live within this house that is broken into areas for living, and you are permitted to leave during the day for certain reasons of which would be employment, medical reasons, things of that nature, and you return to the halfway house in the evening,” T.I.'s attorney, Steve Sadow, told XXL about the conditions of Tip's release. “So it’s a restriction on your liberty but it’s a way for you to reenter into society and not be confined within a jail type institution 24-hours a day.”

Details on T.I.’s release are extremely sketchy at this moment, but check back with BET.com for more details on this story.
