WANNA KNOW WHY T.I.’S BACK IN PRISON?

According to TMZ, the real reason T.I. is back behind bars has less to do with his method of transportation to the halfway house and more to do with his upcoming reality show with Vh1.

It was believed that the artist was traveling with the camera crew when he was only supposed to be transported from the jail to his halfway house with his wife.
