*With an 11-month prison sentence looming, T.I. is no longer a “king uncaged.”
Federal authorities on Tuesday ordered the rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., to report directly to a federal prison in Arkansas by Nov. 1 to start serving his time, the AP reports. The Forrest City low-security prison is where he served parts of an earlier 10-month stint on federal weapons charges.
A federal judge in Atlanta sentenced the rapper this month to serve another 11 months in prison for breaking his federal probation after he was arrested Sept. 1 in Los Angeles on drug charges. Prosecutors in Los Angeles said Monday they will not file a felony drug charge against the rapper.
In the meantime, T.I. has decided to drop “King Uncaged” as the title of his next album and instead name it “No Mercy,” a label rep confirmed to WENN.
The repeatedly delayed project is still awaiting a release date.
