Clifford “T.I.” Harris is finally free from the constraints of his federal prison sentence.
Tip’s attorney, Steve Sadow, confirmed that T.I. left the Dismas Charities Atlanta halfway house “very early this morning” after spending the last year in federal custody and the last two weeks at the halfway house.
Reportedly T.I. left the halfway house just after midnight. Without fanfare, he got into a chauffeur-driven SUV and rode off.
Since his release coincides with the BET Hip-Hop awards (perfect timing) Tip will rest for a few hours and will then start celebrating his freedom Friday evening with a coming home party at an Atlanta club and his Grand Hustle has dedicated it’s annual Sunday brunch in honor of the rapper’s return.
The private brunch is invitation only and estimated to cost around $100,000, with $20,000 spent on food and an additional $8,000 on desserts.
It will be hosted by T.I. and Amar’e Stoudemire of the NY Knicks, who in addition to being Ciara’s ex-boo is a close friend of the Grand Hustle Family. Amare’ even joined forces with Tip a few years ago to promote one of his artists.
