The Grammy-winning artist, real name Clifford Harris, was en route to an Atlanta halfway house after being released from an Arkansas prison on Wednesday.

His mode of transportation – a luxury tour bus, escorted by private SUVs – appears to have violated Harris’ furlough agreement, prompting federal officials to move him to a federal prison in downtown Atlanta.

"There appears to be confusion surrounding the method of transportation," Steve Sadow, T.I.’s lawyer, told The Associated Press.

T.I. had served 10 months in prison for violating his parole.

The news also comes one day after it was announced that T.I. signed on with HarperCollins for a book deal and VH1 for a reality television show, which began filming after his prison release on Wednesday.
