T.I. granted early release from prison, says "great to be back"

Just hours after his lawyer dismissed early release reports, rapper T.I. has walked free from prison. 

The 'Live Your Life' star had been serving a 10-month sentence at the Arkansas Forrest City Correctional Facility for a probation violation, but Chris Burke - the spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons - confirmed that T.I. left the jail this morning (August 31) at 7.29am CST. 

He tweeted a message to his fans and followers earlier this afternoon:

"Feels great to be back where I belong … Back in the arms of those who need me the most. The storm is over & da sun back out. IT'S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!! Welcome to the beginning of our Happy Ending!!!!"
