Being incarcerated hasn’t stopped rapper T.I. from giving back to the community. The Atlanta native, who is currently serving an 11-month prison sentence at Forrest City Correctional Facility in Forrest City, Ark. for violating his probation, sponsored a bus trip for the family and friends of 14 inmates to visit the prison as part of a weekend tagged “To See a Love One.”

“I’ve been blessed to receive tons and tons of mail from my fans, family and friends, as well as get visits on a regular basis. Unfortunately some guys aren’t as fortunate,” T.I. told MTV News. “There are a lot of good dudes in here that haven’t been able to see their loved ones in years. Their families can’t afford the trip so I wanted to help out.”

As part of “To See a Love One,” 46 family members and friends from Atlanta and Alabama rode on a chartered bus on Saturday (May 28) to visit the prison on Sunday and Monday.

T.I., born Clifford Harris, Jr. will be released from prison on September 29, 2011. His seventh studio album, ‘No Mercy,’ was released in December 2010. He went on to sell over 500,000 copies despite being incarcerated at the time.
