T.I. Back in Fed’s Custody -x- DMX Brings Out Scarface at HOB Houston -x- Beyonce Turns 30 -x- Soulja Boy Releases New Mixtape -x- MTV Music News


After only a day in the semi-real world following months in prison, T.I. is already back in federal custody because of an issue involving his trip from the Arkansas prison to his Atlanta halfway house on a luxury bus on Wednesday, according to T.I.’s lawyer, Steve Sadow.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons confirms to TMZ that the rapper checked into a federal penitentiary in Atlanta last night, because he allegedly misled prison officials into thinking he’d take a low-key mode of transportation from the prison to the halfway house — and a tricked out tour bus isn’t low-key.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ — when a prisoner is incarcerated in a low or medium security prison … prison officials can allow the inmate to use a private, unescorted mode of transportation to travel from the prison facility to the halfway house.

During the process of approving such a transfer, the prisoner must state specifically what mode of transportation he or she will be using. Our sources tell us … T.I. informed prison officials he would be taking some sort of van, but made no mention of the high-end, pimped out tour bus.

We’re told prison officials felt T.I. should have fully disclosed the nature of his party bus. Neither drugs nor alcohol were found on the bus.

T.I.’s wife tells TMZ … multiple prison officials actually saw the tour bus that picked up the rapper yesterday — and even took photos with T.I. in front of it — and NOBODY raised an issue.

Tameka “Tiny” Cottle tells us … when the tour bus rolled up to the Arkansas prison yesterday, prison officials “Walked him over, took pics and told him good luck in life.”

Law enforcement sources also told TMZ when the U.S. Marshals arrived at the halfway house to take T.I. back to prison, the halfway house honcho actually got into an argument with them, saying it was ridiculous to send him back for such an alleged violation. But the Marshals had their orders, and took T.I. back to the pokey.

Sadow tells TMZ, “We are awaiting the opportunity to quickly resolve whatever the issue may be that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has with T.I.’s method of transportation, bus, from Arkansas to Atlanta, so that T.I. can return to the halfway house to complete the remaining days of his sentence.”

T.I. was sentenced in October to 11 months in prison for violating his probation, but was let out early. He was to complete the rest of his sentence in the halfway house.



Wanna know what T.I. did after he was released from prison? Well, according to TMZ, the rapper was treated to a home cooked meal prepared by his mother and his Aunt Lita. Since Tip must remain in a halfway house until his sentence is complete, his family brought over a hot plate of food – which included steak, collard greens and mac ‘n cheese. His auntie told the site that he was grateful for the “amazing” meal and revealed that he’s currently “in good spirits.” We can only imagine what his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, brought over.



We previously reported that T.I. was looking to publish his first book, but we had no idea that the project would hit stores next month! According to the AP, the rapper’s upcoming novel, titled Power & Beauty, is a “fictional tale about two childhood friends torn apart by dangerous dealings on the streets of Atlanta.” The book will be available sometime in October via Harper Collins.


Like Nicki Minaj, Kanye West is hoping to become a godparent to Jay-Z and Beyonce’s baby. According to MTV’s Buzzworthy, there are whispers that Yeezy just might become the godfather to the power couple’s unborn child. Though it’s not confirmed, we speculate that ‘Ye is probably on a short list that includes Bey’s sister, Solange, the couple’s favorite couple, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, as well as her former Destiny’s Child bandmate, Kelly Rowland and Hova’s partner in crime, Memphis Bleek.


It’s a great time for Beyonce. Not only has the Houston native released her fourth number one album and announced that she’s expecting her first child with Jay-Z, but the former Destiny’s Child singer is also tuning 30 years old on Sunday. While it’s unknown where the notoriously private entertainer will celebrate this year, we wish her a happy birthday with many more to come.


Some people just can’t control themselves. This seemed to be the case for an unidentified Lil Wayne fan that jumped on stage with the mogul at one of his I Am Still Music tour stops. At the very end of his set, an unnamed male concertgoer shared the stage with Weezy for a total of four seconds before being tackled by a security guard at the Denver Comfort Dental amphitheater. Afterwards, Wayne simply shrugged and told the crowd, “You don’t want that you happen to you.” Check out the 15-second video online now.


As we previously reported, Kelly Rowland has been tapped to join Chris Brown’s upcoming F.A.M.E. tour alongside T-Pain and Tyga. Since the 28-date tour begins September 12th in Toronto and wraps on October 30th inside Hartford, Connecticut’s XL Center. Visit Ticketmaster.com to score passes now.


Following his soaring performance at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, the song Chris Brown showcased has received a massive sales increase. His single, “Beautiful People,” is up 904-percent while “Yeah 3X” rose 149-percent shortly after the VMA’s aired. In addition, Pitbull’s “Give Me Everything” featuring Ne-Yo experienced a 75-percent sales growth on the iTunes singles chart as well. In case you missed their performances, visit MTV.com to check them out now.



TMZ reports Chris Brown would love to give a handsome reward to the unnamed female fan who returned his 22-thousand dollar Rolex. His ultra expensive diamond-encrusted watch got lost during his VMA performance. Since the unidentified woman did not give her name, Brown’s rep is hoping she will contact his camp to receive personal thanks from the singer as well as backstage passes to his upcoming tour. We’ll keep you posted if and when the fan comes forward.


It’s been a great week for Tyler, the Creator. Not only did the Odd Future ringleader take home Best New Artist at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, but he finally met and hung out with Eminem for the first time. The rap rookie ran into Slim Shady at the Tennent’s ViTal music festival in Ireland and posted a picture of them on his Twitter page. Tyler wrote, “F**kkkkk O My Atheist God. Goal List Check: I Told Him Relapse Was One Of The Greatest Albums To Me.”

· Em recently told MTV News that he likes Odd Future, saying, “I love it, I love the fact that they’re doing that. And the dudes can rhyme.”


According to MTV, Drake was impressed with Justin Bieber’s recent remix of “Trust Issues.” However, if Drizzy had it his way, he would have liked the pop sensation to include all the curse words that were on the original. Drake stated, “I wish he would’ve left all the cuss words in it. I feel like that would’ve been so G, if he would’ve done all the swearing. I was excited when I heard he remixed it, because there was like a gang of swearing in that song. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re about to hear the transformation of Bieber.”


Soulja Boy is all about treating his fans to new music. Out of nowhere, the rapper dropped a new mixtape titled The Last Crown. The 18-track project includes collaborations with Lil B, Big Sean and French Montana. Be sure to download it today via his official website now!

During an interview with Uptown magazine, Swizz Beatz touched on what life is like with his second wife, Alicia Keys. The hitmaker shared that the first thing he does in the morning is “open the curtains and I’m thankful for another day. If my wife is next to me, it’s an instant hug and kiss. Get up, brush the teeth, do this, do that, and then it’s showtime!” He added that the one thing he’s learned from Alicia is “love.”

· The couple has been together for one year and share an 11-month old son, Egypt Daud Dean.

· Alicia recently told Glamour magazine the moment she fell in love. She stated, “I do remember the exact moment. If I told you, I would have to kill you, but it was something that he planned, and he planned it so beautifully and thoughtfully that in that moment I remember thinking to myself, Oh my God, I’m so in love with him.”


DMX is slowly but surely finding a way to rebuild his music career. The rapper invited Scarface on stage with him on Wednesday night at the House of Blues in Houston, Texas. Both rappers just completed prison sentences on unrelated charges and stood side by side during X’s infamous prayer. Head over to HoustonPress.com to watch performance footage now.


According to Rap-Up.com, Christina Milian is speaking up about the status of her long awaited album. While the disc is no longer titled Elope, the singer stated, “I think I found my sound for this one,” The Dream’s ex-wife added, “It’s an entirely new album. I’ve gone through a lot since then, so it’s definitely a little more honest. It’s based on just living life and there’s more to talk about now. But it’s urban, it’s pop, it’s sexy, it’s fierce, and independent. It’s awesome.” The upcoming effort will be released via Interscope Records.

· Do you think the singer will include lyrics about her public divorce?

· In addition, Milian is negotiating a lead role in ABC Family’s half-hour comedy, Maid in Miami.
