Rapper T.I. was released from an Atlanta halfway house Thursday morning, his lawyer said.

The popular hip-hop artist, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., wass serving an 11-month sentence for violating his parole on a gun conviction.

The rapper served two stints in the Arkansas prison. He served seven months there in 2009 as part of an unusual sentence negotiated two years ago to resolve federal gun charges. Those charges followed his attempt to buy three machine guns in the parking lot of an Atlanta grocery store.

Advice to Clifford this weekend is simple: stay at home and enjoy time with the kids. You’re not necessarily needed at the BET Hip-Hop Awards and the only thing fans are really looking forward to from you is new music (such as the track with Big K.R.I.T.) and no more “redemption” tracks.
