Oh, T.I., T.I., T.I. Or, maybe we should call you by your full name, so that you know you're in trouble. Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., you are on thin ice, mister! I mean, we all know marijuana is the root of all evil, right?

Freshly released first from an Arkansas prison, and then from an Atlanta halfway house, the rapper is already in hot water again. Still on probation following his 2009 gun possession charges, T.I. and his wife, former member of Xscape, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, were arrested in Los Angeles after city police sniffed some ganja fumes emitting from their vehicle.

The couple were released around 4:00am on September 2, on ten thousand dollars bail each. As of press time, there it is unknown whether or not this will land T.I. right back in the slammer, or if he will manage to skate by unscathed.

In addition to keeping up with his legal woes, T.I. is hard at work his seventh studio album, King Uncaged. Although it was supposed to be released August 17, T.I. announced recently that the album will be delayed until September 28, in order to focus on promoting Takers, a crime heist film which features the rapper and was released to generally negative reviews.

So, in a nutshell: a rap artist delays an album, gets arrested for drug charges, and stars in a bad movie. Everything is in its right place. Right?
