It appears that Atlanta-bred rapper T.I. is optimistic about serving a year in jail next March based upon his conviction on illegal gun possession charges following his 2007 arrest.

“Presumably, while I’m there, I’ll be able to strategize my comeback,” T.I. told MTV News. “I ain’t gonna just be sitting still doing nothing. The wheels will be turning, just the car ain’t going nowhere.” The artist is currently working on his next album and is in the process of producing a film titled “For Sale.”

However, the “Whatever You Like” Grammy winner, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., is worried that his time away will adversely affect his five children. He said his 12-year-old daughter will hold it down but he’s more concerned about how his sons will manage without him.
