The Real World T.I.?

While the 20 year old roommates battle it out over kitchen cleanup and who stole who's girl on Real World Hollywood, a new reality show is in the works about a rapper's legal ordeal. Rapper T.I. (Clifford Harris) is about to serve a sentence for gun possession and other charges, and that makes for interesting reality TV for some. The smart folks from MTV decided they'd buy into a new 8 part reality TV series about the rapper. The series is designed to show TI's legal woes and how he's performing his community service hours as payback.

According to

Ish Entertainment will follow the hip-hop star while he performs more than 1,000 hours of community service before starting a one-year prison sentence on weapons charges next spring, according an Atlantic spokesperson.

Cameras already chronicled T.I.'s release from house arrest, and shooting will continue this summer, leading up to his return to jail in early 2009.

The show, produced by Michael Hirschorn and Stella Stolper and executive produced by T.I. and partner Jason Geter, will air on MTV some time soon after that.

TI is also working on a new album called "Paper Trail" due out August 12th, and his current single "No Matter What" is #19 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart at Billboard. No word on if a series will be made about Remy Ma or other hip hop stars who are serving time, but MTV might be looking into season 2 already.
