*Can one have too many homecomings?
Well, that’s what’s about to go down for Southern rapper T.I.
It’s been confirmed that the “King of the South” is being released from the Forrest City Correctional Facility in Georgia where he is serving an 11-month sentence on Wednesday Aug. 31. But his freedom isn’t won yet. He’ll be living at a halfway house. BTW, his original release date was Sept. 29.
Once he’s out, fans can be sure he’ll be back in the studio working. And producer La Mar “Mars” Edwards is eager to make it happen, according to MTV News.
“He let me know, ‘I got your back and stay close to me, you’re my brother,’ ” said Mars, who just produced Game’s “The R.E.D. Album.” “Ever since then, he’s really treated me like a little brother. He’ll call me to talk about life. It’s more to it than me being his production partner and having Smash Factory.”
And you don’t have to guess if T.I. is ready for it.
While on vacation, as they say, he’s been keeping fans updated via his TrapMuzik.com website. His latest entry “Live your Life” revealed that he’ll return to his original sound and that he’s serious about his work.
“Next time you hear from me, I’ll be back out there with you,” he wrote. “Doing for those who can’t do for themselves and speaking for those whose voices are never heard. When I touch down, I’m going all the way back to square one, like I’m fresh in the game and never sold a record. Back on some I’M SERIOUS, TRAP MUZIK sh–. … But until then RESPECT to all who deserve it.”
While incarcerated, he sponsored a Memorial Day bus trip for the families of 14 inmates.
