Well rapper T.I. has a lot to celebrate today. As of 7:29 this morning, Clifford Harris became a free man – well more like a free man under the supervision of local Arkansas law enforcement.

T.I. served a total of 11 months after his September 2010 arrest in L.A. for getting caught with cocaine and other substances. His scheduled 1 year sentence stemmed from a probation violation from a September 2009 felony conviction for illegal weapons.

T.I. is currently being held at a local community facility– a transition place for newly released inmates, until his official time is up.

In response to his newly found freedom, T.I. offered his thoughts via Twitter:

Feels great to be back where I belong…Back in the arms of those who need me the most.

The storm is over da sun back out. IT’S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!! Welcome to the beginning of our Happy Ending!!!!

In anticipation of T.I.’s  release, Tiny & Toya tweeted yesterday:

@TinyMajorMama: Ya No! Thx T RT @ToyaWright: So happy for my big sis @TinyMajorMama and the Fam…my big brother @Tip we be FREE Tomorrow!☺

Hopefully T.I. treads very lightly – and stays out of trouble. The streets are watching TIP!

And check out some SMH news after the break:

Rapper Khia was arrested in Dekalb County, Georgia on Sunday, August 21st, with the charge of “endangering security interest,” and was released after posting $500 bond.

According to reports, the charge refers to an incident where an automobile owner has “defaulted on their vehicle’s financing and then refuses the repo company to take back the vehicle”. In layman’s terms: Khia didn’t pay her car note. SMH.

Unfortunately, this is not the first incident for Khia where she has been arrested. Check out her previous 19 mugshots after the break:

Ja Rule is scheduled to turn himself in today after he pleaded guilty in December 2010 to attempted criminal possession of a weapon.

Ja Rule, whose real name Jeffrey Atkins, has been in the studio working on tracks and shooting videos in preparation of his lock down. He is expected to serve his sentence in upstate New York prison for 2 years.

Rule recently told “Good Day New York” about his upcoming sentence:

“Laws are laws. There’s nothing I could really do but own up to the situation. You know, I try not to regret anything I do in life, because you go through life and you do things, and you man up to them. You own them.”

As you may recall, back in 2007 – the same night Lil Wayne was arrested for gun possession after their concert they performed together – Ja Rule was also stopped in his Maybach and cops found a .40 caliber semi-automatic gun in his vehicle.

In addition to those charges, his lawyers are working to have the additional tax evasion charges on his $3 million income–which will give him 3 additional years in prison– combined with his current sentence so it can be served out simultaneously.

Although sentenced for 2 years, Rule is hoping to get out in 6 months on good behavior. He recently tweeted his last few words today:

Rule leaves behind his wife and 3 kids in New Jersey and says he wants to get his GED, learn to play the guitar, and write a book.

Since the purchase of my flip cam almost 2 years ago, I have been on the proverbial mission to document all that is Ms. Drama. Surprisingly, those moments have led to some of the most exclusive and intimate conversations with artists, celebrities, moguls and the like. I never became Ms. Drama for the flashing lights, but to create a lane of opportunity when the doors weren’t exactly open for a personality that couldn’t essentially be fit in a box. My background is journalism, but my personality strives to expose the hidden story (as uncomfortable as it may be) through humor, a little sarcasm, and more often than not a good amount of tactfulness that is often swept under the rug by the brand of Ms. Drama.

Nevertheless, with flipcam in hand, I continue to document the world of “drama” in hopes that the appropriate platform will rise to the challenge of housing such a brand. Yet, with that thought – can this brand truly be housed?
