Rapper T.I. has been released from an Arkansas prison -- and is on his way to either a community living facility or home confinement ... TMZ has learned.

T.I. was sentenced to 11 months behind bars after his drug possession arrest on the Sunset Strip back in September 2010 -- an arrest that caused law enforcement officials to revoke his probation stemming from a federal gun conviction back in 2009.

Chris Burke, spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, tells us T.I. was released at 7:29 AM local time ... and is "in transit" to begin the next leg of his sentence. 

T.I. checked into prison on November 1, 2010 -- and he was originally scheduled to be released on September 29.

I like T.I. - not to fond of that wife of his, I sure hope she got her act together when he was in prison because I think she's the cause of a lot of his troubles.

You can wise up and learn from your mistakes or keep walking down the same road. It is sad to see how many people take the opportunity they get and throw it away for no good reason.

What I find funny is that he released that song with Justin Timberlake 'Dead and gone' about redemption and not making mistakes then shortly after he got thrown back in jail. What an idiot.

Rappers kill me! They do all this talk about how 'theyre a changed person', how they 'turned over a new leaf', but then get convicted for doing the EXACT same thing! So my question is to you: how long do you think before he's arrested again? He's probally going to make another apology song with CB, called 'Get back up,AGAIN!'
