MUSIC NEWS: T.I. RETURNS TO HALF WAY HOUSE + LIL WAYNE HOLDS ON TO THE #1 SPOT

15 Sep


Almost Home? Rapper T.I. is headed back into a half-way house after being brought back to an Arkansas prison after the entourage on his tour bus were considered distractions to him serving out the remaining of his sentence.

according to TMZ

Prison officials sent U.S. Marshals to the halfway house last week, after concluding T.I. had unauthorized people on the bus that transported him there.  Officials also claimed T.I. conducted business on the bus — something his reps strongly deny.

T.I.’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, tells TMZ, “We have good reason to believe that this favorable result was reached because of the proactive and assertive approach taken to protect T.I.’s rights by providing B.O.P. officials and the media with reliable and accurate information and that T.I. did not intend to violate his transfer furlough or any other B.O.P. rules en route from the prison facility in Arkansas to the halfway house in Atlanta.”

Sadow adds, “T.I. will be released from custody on Sept. 29, and then will be supervised by the U.S. Probation Office for a period of 1 year.”



Sales of Lil Wayne’s new album dropped 77 percent in its second week out but it still easily holds No. 1 on the Billboard chart in a week that also saw the return of the Beatles to the Top 10.

Lil Wayne’s record, “Tha Carter IV” (Cash Money/Universal Republic), opened on last week’s chart with a remarkable 964,000 sales, the second-biggest opening of the year and even more than many in the industry predicted for it. In its second week of release, the album moved 219,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.(source)
