The rapper T.I. is back at a halfway house in Atlanta.

The Grammy-winning artist's attorney said Thursday that T.I. was transferred from a federal prison in the city to serve the remainder of his sentence for a probation violation. He is set to be released on Sept. 29.

Steve Sadow said his client is pleased with the favorable result. The Bureau of Prisons has declined to comment.

T.I. had been released one month early from a federal prison in Arkansas on Aug. 31. But he was back in federal custody a day later after officials say he violated prison rules by conducting business on his 375-mile journey to Atlanta.

T.I.'s attorneys said a VH1 reality show and a book deal had been finalized long before the trip.
