Tip is coming home! Sources have confirmed that the Atlanta rapper, currently serving an 11-month sentence in Forrest City Correctional Facility in Georgia, will be released to a halfway house tomorrow on August 31st. Tip will be walking out of jail about a month early, with his original release date listed as September 29 in public records.
T.I.'s Smash company partner, producer La Mar "Mars" Edwards, is eager to reunite with Tip in the studio. "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." - MTV
