Rapper T.I. has on Tuesday, December 22, been released from a federal prison in Arkansas nearly seven months into a 366-day term that stemmed from his 2007 arrest for attempting to buy illegal machine guns and silencers from undercover agents.

"He was released this morning from his place of incarceration in Arkansas," his attorney Steve Sadow exclusively confirms to XXLmag.com.

"As I understand it, he's on his way back to the Atlanta area," Steve says in a statement. "He has to report to a halfway house in Atlanta sometime this evening. And he will then spend somewhere between the next two or three months in a halfway house, ending his Buruea of Prison sentence."

"A halfway house is more along the lines of a residential dormitory. You live within this house that is broken into areas for living, and you are permitted to leave during the day for certain reasons of which would be employment, medical reasons, things of that nature, and you return to the halfway house in the evening.

So it's a restriction on your liberty but it's a way for you to reenter into society and not be confined within a jail type institution 24-hours a day," Steve tells XXLmag.com.

T.I. began serving his 366-day federal prison sentence in May this year. He was originally scheduled to be released on March 10, 2010.
