Apparently the rumors were true. T.I. was released from prison this morning, about a month earlier than expected. According to TMZ, he'll either be restricted to home confinement or a halfway house, but Tip already took to Twitter and seems happy to have his time in the Arkansas prison behind him.

Update: MTV has confirmed that T.I. is on his way to a community living facility, where he will serve out the remaining 11 months of his sentence. His reality show, about the rapper's life after prison with wife Tameka 'Tiny' Harris, will premiere on VH1 on December 5.
