'Rubber Band Man' Rapper T.I. Gets Three Years In Prison
April 22, 2004

Rapper T.I. was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison for violating the terms of his probation. After serving a minimum of one year, T.I. can apply for a work-release program, according to the county clerk's office in Cobb County, Georgia.

An arrest warrant for T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, was issued on December 29, ordering a revocation of his probation. He turned himself in to county officials on March 30 and had been in custody ever since.

His lawyers appeared in Cobb County Superior Court Wednesday and signed a consent order with prosecutors that essentially stipulated T.I. should be sentenced immediately, thus avoiding the need for a formal hearing.

T.I. was on probation stemming from a 1998 conviction for violating a state controlled substances act and for giving false information. After being released on probation, he earned a litany of probation violations in several counties around Georgia for offenses ranging from possession of a firearm to possession of marijuana.

The setback comes just as T.I. was starting to earn widespread recognition with his second album, Trap Muzik, and its hit single, "Rubber Band Man."

A spokesperson for T.I. was not available for comment.
