ATLANTA, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- Rapper T.I. will serve out the rest of his term for a drug conviction at an Atlanta halfway house despite violating terms of his sentence, officials said.

TMZ said the hip-hop artist returned to his temporary supervised home Thursday -- two weeks after he was taken out of the halfway house and returned to prison for violating the terms of an agreement he made with authorities by traveling to the location by luxury tour bus instead of a less ostentatious van.

If the recording artist doesn't further violate the rules of his sentencing, he will be released Sept. 29, TMZ said.

T.I. was sentenced to 11 months in federal prison last September for a drug possession conviction. The arrest violated the terms of his probation for a previous federal gun conviction.
