This wasn't T.I.'s first stint in the slammer. He previously served seven months in an Arkansas prison in 2009. He was originally arrested in 2007 for trying to buy unregistered guns and silencers from undercover federal agents.

"The storm is over and da sun back out," he tweeted Wednesday. "It's our time to shine, shanty! Welcome to the beginning of our happy ending."
