Fans of T.I. anxiously waiting to hear his new music may get their wish sooner than expected now that reps have confirmed that he’ll be a free man later this month.
As previously reported, T.I. was released from jail in December after serving seven months of his one year and one day sentence to Dismas Charities Atlanta West halfway house.
While still technically in confinement, Tip’s been spotted in Atlanta, making his first post-jail appearance at an event for his fiancé Tiny.
Now however, Tip will be a free man on March 26.
Reps for T.I. spoke with MTV news and confirmed that his official release date will be later this month.
Lawyer Steve Sadow says,
“That date is correct. T.I. is now serving the remainder of his sentence in home confinement under the supervision of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.”
In promotion of his return, Tip is conducting interviews with DJs nationwide before he drops his new single, “I’m Back” Monday March 8th.
