After bouncing between prison and the halfway house, T.I. finally walked out this morning as a free man and TMZ was there to catch the moment. This time, instead of calling in for a big tour bus that got him in trouble after his last release, he casually walked out and entered an SUV, which quickly drove him away.

He's still got probabtion for the next year, but it's good to see T.I. finally free. Hopefully now he can get that book out and that reality show going. We might even get some more music, too. First comes the celebration, though. Rumor has it the rapper is dropping about $100,000 on a party in ATL, complete with 150 bottles of Circoc courtesy of Diddy himself.

Welcome home, Tip.
