Rapper T.I., born Clifford Harris Jr, has filed a motion to delay the start of his sentence at an Arkansas detention center next week so he can upgrade his living arrangements. T.I. also wants to be moved to a prison facility closer to home -- can you blame him?

As you know, a request was approved back in March to delay the original start of T.I.'s sentence because T.I. said he had prior contractual commitments to tend to first.

From AJC.com:

In a court filing Thursday, T.I.’s lawyers asked for a two-week delay to resolve the issue with the Bureau of Prisons. T.I. has been ordered by the U.S. Marshall’s Service to begin serving his time on Tuesday at a low-security federal prison in Forrest City, Ark.

In the filing, T.I.’s lawyers said he should be allowed to serve his time in a prison camp. T.I. was assigned to go to the Forrest City facility because he had a prior offense that was designated as a serious violent felony, his lawyers said.

But the prior offense did not involve a weapon and “amounted to little more than a ‘scuffle’ at a mall,” the motion said.

Once T.I. reports to prison, changing his location is an “extremely cumbersome process” that might last until his sentence is almost complete, the lawyers said. The motion is pending before U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr., who presided over the case.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons Web site, prison camps are minimum-security institutions with dormitory housing, relatively low staff-to-inmate ratios and limited or no perimeter fencing.

Low-security prisons, like the one in Forrest City, have double-fenced perimeters with higher staff-to-inmate ratios. Both types of facilities have inmate work programs.

T.I. can carve 15 percent off his sentence with good behavior and is expected to get credit for the two weeks he sat in jail after his arrest and before he posted a $3 million bond.

    Lmao I really wonder what these two did to fall out of your graces.

    His reason is super stupid. & I hope they give him extra time for requesting to be moved. He is really starting to think he is above the law. You give a nicca an inch they wanna take a mile. Go do your time and get it over with.

  • Shauny

    He's trying to make his neice and nephews graduation. He said that in that MTV special. You ain't slick Clifford.

    It thought he was supposed turn himself in on the 19th. Boy what money can do.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    ISCREAM, I HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOU. HE SHOULD AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN TREATED JUST AS YOUR REGULAR JOE. ALL THESE SPECIAL PRIVILEDGES AND REQUESTS ARE REALLY WORKING ME. IT'S NOT LIKE HE NOR TINY CAN'T AFFORD THE VISITS WHEN THEY MOVE HIM TO ARKANSAS. "STOP THE BYTCHING AND MOANING AND SERVE YOUR TIME!"

    @Shauny Yep that's what I am thinking as well.

    I don't know why ppl act like TI is the first "star" to get favorable treatment by the unjust justice system? He aint the 1st and wont be the last. For those comparing him to Vick (in other post) TI didnt send Vick to jail he shouldve gotten a better lawyer like TI..lol Vick did look good in the pic I saw yesterday though!

    TEAM TI!!!!!
