Due to the tour bus trip, T.I. will be held behind bars for another month.
T.I.’s choice of transportation from a Forrest City, Arkansas prison has cost him his freedom until the end of September.
T.I. was released from prison last Wednesday (August 31st), after an 11 month sentence for violating the terms of his probation, after he was caught with ecstasy, in September of 2010.
The rapper, born Clifford Harris, took a luxury motor coach filled with his entourage from the Arkansas prison facility, to a halfway house in Atlanta, where he was due to check in. His high-profile mode of transportation to the halfway house angered authorities, who sent him back to federal prison in Atlanta, where he is due to be released September 29th, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
T.I.’s attorney Steve Sadow told the Associated Press that authorities have yet to send a formal notice explaining how the trip on the motor coach was in violation of any rule or law.
According to Sadow, as well as T.I.’s wife Tomeka “Tiny” Cottle, the rapper boarded the bus in full view of prison authorities.
“T.I. got on a private bus in the prison’s parking area in full view of BOP employees. Indeed, he was actually escorted to the bus by a prison guard,” Sadow said.

During the discussion Machine Gun Kelly said he wasn’t going to set his city back ten years by beefing with another man from his city (who’s never there) over a word. Firing shots while trying to downplay an argument never works. Let the rage begin. Ha.

Lil Wayne’s latest album Tha Carter IV has broken Jay-Z & Kanye West’s iTunes album downloads record in only four days. If you don’t have the album yet, make sure you cop the album here.
Less than three weeks after the U.S. iTunes Store’s single-week album sales record was broken by Jay-Z & Kanye West’s “Watch the Throne,” it’s been smashed again — by Lil Wayne’s new “Tha Carter IV.”
“Carter” has sold over 300,000 downloads via iTunes in only its first four days of release, according to Cash Money/Universal Republic Records. That outpaces the 290,000 that “Throne” moved through iTunes in its entire first week.
“Carter’s” achievement is all the more impressive because it’s available through all digital and physical retailers, not just iTunes. Comparatively, “Throne” was sold exclusively through iTunes for its first four days of release.
