A rapper who recently finished serving nearly a year in an Arkansas federal prison — his second incarceration in three years — has been given a reality television show on VH1, reports Deadline.com.
The network ordered 10 episodes of a show that will star rapper T.I., focusing on his readjustment to life outside the pen, including reuniting with his family.
The show is still unnamed, but is slated to premiere Dec. 5. T.I., whose real name is Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., is also an actor and producer, and co-CEO of Grand Hustle Records. His legal problems have typically centered on drug and weapons charges.
