Rapper T.I. Coming To Arkansas - For Prison Term

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - T.I. will be coming to Arkansas by May 26 to serve a prison sentence on federal weapons charges.

The 28-year-old rapper, whose real name is Clifford J. Harris Jr., will be serving his sentence of one year and a day at the Forrest City low-security federal prison. Paperwork filed in his federal court case shows he has until noon on May 26 to report for his sentence.

Prison officials didn't immediately return a call Friday for comment.

Harris pleaded guilty to the charges after he tried to buy a stash of machine guns and silencers to protect himself after his best friend was killed. He will also pay a $100,000 fine as part of his sentence.
