T.I. recording new CD while under house arrest

Ti_l
Rapper Clifford “T.I.” Harris is working on a new studio album while under house arrest on pending gun charges, EW has exclusively learned.

A representative for the Grammy-winning artist, 27, says he has already completed six new tracks in a studio inside his Georgia home. T.I. hopes to release the disc, which he’s calling Paper Trail, in September 2008. The album’s title refers to the fact that T.I. is writing his new lyrics down — a practice he abandoned after his 2001 debut, I’m Serious. Each of his four subsequent albums, including this year’s T.I. vs. T.I.P., was composed without the aid of pen or paper. “He wanted to take more time to really put something down [this time],” explains his rep.

T.I. was arrested last month in Atlanta after allegedly trying to purchase several unregistered machine guns and silencers. (A federal search of his home also allegedly turned up other firearms, which the law prohibits him from owning as a previously convicted felon.) The terms of his bail currently require him to remain inside his house at all times while awaiting trial, and strictly limit the number of guests who can visit him; this week, his attorneys withdrew their request to allow additional guests for a family meal on Thanksgiving.

    My boy T.I is doing it real big & always has been. I applaude him for that. House arrest is just a minor set back. Atleast he’s doing something productive with his time, though.

    T.I.P just do what you do and stay outta trouble, if you go to prison i guess southern rap is over, p.s a jamaican rapper said so

    T.I. is messing up. He’s young, black, and a rapper. In this country that’s enough to put him in jail right there. What does he need guns for? He has bodyguards for protection. Another black man who becomes successful but messes up because he can’t see the BIG picture and can’t leave the hood nonsense behind. It’s too bad because he’s actually talented.
