ATLANTA --

Grammy-winning rapper T.I., who was freed after months in prison, was back in federal custody Thursday because of a flap over his use of a luxury bus to report to a halfway house, his lawyer said.

Steve Sadow told The Associated Press that the Federal Bureau of Prisons "has moved T.I. to a different facility" because of an issue involving the rapper's 375-mile trip Wednesday from the Arkansas lockup to Atlanta in a gleaming motor coach.

He did not elaborate on the exact nature of the problem federal authorities had, but said it was not drug-related. He said they are trying to resolve the problem.

This is undoubted proof of the magnitude to which they are watching and waiting for this man to slip.

With her husband back in federal custody because of a "transportation" issue, Tameka "Tiny" Harris is not sitting by quietly, of course.  She blasted prison officials saying they escorted T.I. to his tour bus, posed for pics, and NEVER raised an issue.  Deets inside....

T.I.'s wife Tiny would like to know why T.I.'s tour bus became an issue for prison officals AFTER he left their custody.    

Tiny spoke to TMZ and revealed that prison officials clearly knew he would be riding on a tour bus because they personally walked him to the bus.  She adds that the officers then posed for pics with the rap star and wished him well in life.
"This is a bunch of bulls**t ... they should have said something before he got on the bus ... T.I. would have politely gotten into a van."

She continued,
"T.I. is one of the strongest individuals I know ... and they just trying to break him in more ways than one and it's not gonna work! 'Cause what God got for him, can't no man take that away ... period!"


Tiny's got a point. If you see something...say something.  But they should have followed the rules regardless.

Being in a Halfway House is still being in custody.And it wasn't about the tour bus, it was more about VH1 being on the bus with cameras to film his reality show. Say what you want about them being unfair to T.I., but dude makes it too easy for them. With lyrics like " 7 Time Felon what I care about a case man" it shows his arrogance gets the better of his common sense.

Anyway can somebody please explain to me how an already convicted felon gets off with only a year sentence after having multiple machine guns and silencers? Please don't tell me it's because he had money. And you'd figure after being so fortunate he'd stay on the low...nope he gets busted with drugs...so you think after being in jail this time he'd be low key right? Nope dude gets a freaking tour bus to be transported from AR to GA to a halfway house and filming a reality show in the process. That's like giving a big middle finger to the feds...the same feds who let him off light with that year sentence. Not smart. He needs to take a break and lay low, cause best believe they are on his !*@.

I don't knock TI for this, if I were married to Tiny I'd want to go back to prison too
