(Newser) – T.I. has 11 days to arrive at a low-security Arkansas prison for his year-and-a-day sentence on weapons charges, E! Online reports. The 28-year-old rapper, real name Clifford J. Harris Jr., will likely spend less than 2 months at the Forrest City federal prison, thanks to early release and 305 days served in home detention. His last pre-prison show will be May 24 in Atlanta.

T.I. pleaded guilty after trying to purchase machine guns and silencers in Atlanta for self-protection, the AP reports. His sentence also includes a $100,000 fine.
