Looks like a king is about to be caged. WSB Atlanta reports that T.I. was sentenced this afternoon to 11 months in jail stemming from a September drug arrest. T.I. who was released from prison only eight months ago after serving just under a year in prison, was on three years’ probation as part of his initial plea bargain.
“I want drugs out of my life. If I can get treatment and counseling I need… I can beat this,” Tip told the federal judge—coincidentally the same one who sentenced him in March 2009 for a firearms violation.
On September 1, both T.I. and his wife Tiny were stopped by police in Hollywood after making an illegal U-turn. The couple was immediately arrested under charges of holding a controlled substance. T.I. later tested positive for opiates, an ingredient found in sizzurp.
