Rapper T.I. Begins Prison Sentence

Rapper T.I. Arrives Late for Prison Sentence; Will be Treated Same as Everyone Else

Written by: Karen Benardello

Convicted rapper T.I., whose real name is Clifford J. Harris, Jr., began his one year and a day prison sentence at the Forrest City low-security prison in Arkansas on Tuesday, May 26. However, the singer, who showed up in a black coversion van with tinted windows to reporters and onlookers, arrived late. It was not immediately made clear if the tardiness would affect Harris' sentence.

Federal prison spokeswoman Traci Billingsley did say that the Atlanta rapper, whose inmate number is 59458019, won't receive special protection. The prison has double-bunked beds and a large fence exercise yard, which Harris would be using.

Harris was arrested after trying to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers from undercover federal agents in 2007, follwing his best friend's killing at a Cincinnati party in 2006. The rapper said the bullets that killed his friend were really meant for him.
