A judge has revoked rapper T.I.'s probation and is sending him to prison for 11 months.

The Atlanta, Georgia, rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, was in court following his arrest last month in Los Angeles on suspicion of drug possession.

He was on probation after serving 10 months behind bars on weapons charges.

T.I. begged the judge not to send him back to prison, saying he needed to get help for drug addiction. He told the judge he "screwed up" and pleaded for mercy.

US attorney spokesman Patrick Crosby said T.I. would voluntarily surrender.

The Grammy Award-winning artist walked out of the Atlanta court with family and friends.

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
