T.I.

Sadly, there was no butterflied filet mignon waiting for the rapper T.I. when he surrendered in May 2009 to begin serving his 366-day prison sentence on a weapons charge.

Normally, when the 28-year-old performer (real name: Clifford Harris) hits the road, he travels first class, stays in luxury hotels, and has his dressing room stocked with premium booze and fine sweets like Skittles and Lemonheads. Harris's accommodations and menu choices at the minimum security federal lockup in Forrest City, Arkansas would presumably be more austere than the ones required by his rider, an excerpt of which you'll find here.
