The date has been set for the probation hearing that will decide whether rapper T.I. will remain uncaged.

According to TMZ, on October 15 the Atlantic recording artist has to go before a federal judge to plead his case not to have his probation revoked.

As previously reported, T.I. and his wife Tiny were arrested last month in L.A for possession of a controlled substance, after they were pulled over in West Hollywood and found in possession of ecstasy.

To make matters worse, not only did T.I. fail a drug test when traces of codeine were found in his system, but he was also traveling with a convicted felon named Cortez “C-Rod” Thomas.

All infractions are violations of the terms of T.I.’s three-year probation.

The rapper just came home from prison in December following a 12-month sentence for attempting to purchase machine guns and silencers just before the BET Hip-Hop Awards in October of 2007.

In an interview last month, U.S. Attorney Sally Yates told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

“We are very disappointed in Mr. Harris’ recent conduct, we will make our sentencing recommendation at the revocation hearing.”
