T.I. Checks Into Prison -- Inmate #59458-019

11/1/2010 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

T.I. has officially begun his 11-month stint in an Arkansas prison -- law enforcement sources tell TMZ the rapper checked in "sometime this afternoon."

T.I. Jail:

If you recall, T.I. was sentenced to 11 months behind bars after his drug possession arrest on the Sunset Strip back in September -- an arrest that caused law enforcement officials to revoke his probation stemming from a federal gun conviction back in 2009.

A spokesperson for the prison tells us T.I. will go through the normal process -- which means he'll be processed, pose for a prison photo, and will be given a bunk assignment.

As for the shower issue -- we're told T.I.'s prison has a community shower situation.

We're told T.I. will have access to a television room for general viewing.

T.I. will be issued a standard prison uniform -- khaki trousers, khaki button down shirt and black shoes.

Inmates at the prison can make phone calls -- but they're limited to 300 minutes per month.

For all of those commenting on Charlie Sheen/ Lindsey Lohan etc.

Please remember that T.I was busted on FEDERAL Charges. You don't cut easy plea deals with the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

i think that he was wrong for what he did and yes he deserves to go back to jail. But come on now Lindsey Lohan goes to rehab for a month and gets out and does the same thing again and she gets no jail time. What a load of bs!!!!

lindsay lohan has it easy but T.I. has to go to prison? well lindsay will never learn if she is always given 5th and 6th chances and no hard prison time, that is EVIDENT... i'll be looking for her to die of an overdose, while T.I. learns from his mistakes and moves on. pacifying her will only lead to her death.

Rappers are like any other person to the justice system...it seems the only way you can get off is by being rich and white shameful!Charlie Sheen caught in a cocaine induced rage with after he beat up his wife and messed up a hotel room with a porn whore but no jail time Lindsay violates her probation like 80 times and spends 2 hours in jail and released to rehab where is the justice!!!!

Richard I challenge you to expand your horizons as far as black music is concerned. I'm black and although I am embarassed to say I agree with you about the fake thugs and gangsta rap being bull****, there are still rappers worth listening to. If you want real authentic gangsta rap you have Cormega, if you want elevated thought introspective rap there is Talib Quali (Probably spelled his last name wrong) but my point is there is still quality black musicians that are exceptional.

I absolutely think that he should've been able to go to rehab instead of jail! If he is an addict, he will remain in this vicious cycle of drugs and jail. He needs help! As soon as his time is up, I hope he goes to rehab. He is a very talented man, why waste that gift?! As for L.L., she's not that great of an actress, not that pretty, and has idiots as parents. She will always get into trouble, no matter what kind of help she gets!

his music is kinda good. he is never out of jail that long anyways. thats like a second home to him. my opinion i think he needs to stay longer wat he has to. he never learns his lesson because he didn't learn anything the first few times he was in there.

I don't know what his problem is... I mean I don't know him so I don't want to judge. However, this is all i can see from a third person perspective. Does Tiny and T.I care for their kids - for god's sake they've got six - have they ever thought they need their mum and dad at home and not in jail for some god damn drug or gun possession. He is very successful and can use it to do some good for himself and keep himself clean. Maybe this is how "gangsta life" is. I think he really needs to get his act right for him to lead a happy life - successful or not they're kids need him - he should know better by now but clearly he doesn't, I mean it's up to him how he wants to go about things but it's just really sad that they're kids have to go down with him if he doesn't sort himself out.
