T.I. Celebrates Homecoming at BET Hip Hop Awards

T.I. Celebrates Homecoming at BET Hip Hop Awards

The rapper takes the stage for the first time since release from prison.

Two days after completing an 11-month sentence for probation violation, Clifford “T.I.” Harris made a triumphant return to the hip hop.


Tip took the stage at the BET Hip Hop Awards tonight in Atlanta, marking a fitting homecoming for the King of the South. Decked out in a gray hooded sweatsuit, Rubber Band Man made a surprise appearance in front of a packed house at the Atlanta Civic Center, where he performed his just-leaked single "I'm Flexin'" and his new collabo with Young Jeezy, "F.A.M.E."


As previously reported, T.I. was released from an Atlanta halfway house on Thursday (September 29), ending his 10-month bid. The rapper’s 30-day stay at the lax halfway house was not without drama. T.I. was sent back to a federal prison after prison officials ruled he violated terms of his early release when he rode home from Arkansas’s Forrest City Correctional Facility in a luxury tour bus.
