Posted By on April 22, 2004

“Rubber Band Man” T.I. will be bouncing all the way to jail, having been sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison for probation violations.

T.I.’s avoidance of the law for several years has finally caught up with him. The Atlanta-based rapper has racked up various probation violations in several Georgia counties for offenses ranging from marijuana to firearm possession. Clifford “T.I.” Harris received probation in 1998 for giving false information to authorities and possessing controlled substances.

Police issued an arrest warrant Harris in December. He turned himself in to officials just three weeks ago and has been held in police custody.

Late Wednesday afternoon, Cobb County Superior Court officials issued a three-year jail sentence to the rapper. He will have to serve at least one year and will then be eligible to apply for a work-release program.

T.I. has been out promoting his new album, Trap Muzik, and his hit single, “Rubber Band Man” has been rotating on video and radio nationally. His label, Atlantic Records, has made no comment on how this will affect his current promotion and future releases.
