Writing on his official website, the rapper - who recently began an 11-month sentence for a probation violation - insisted that he is ready to change his life and has learned from his past mistakes.
"This experience is truly a pain I have never felt before and that's saying a lot for a n***a who's been down locked up as many times as I have, (sic)" he explained.
"I see this as a real ass whoopin'. The kind you don't just go back outside to play afterwards. You take ya ass to bed and don't come out of your room until it's time to go to school."
He continued: "I don't know what effect this will have on my life moving forward but I'm certainly sick and mother f**king tired of going to jail, juve, prison, the pen, correctional facilities or whatever else you want to call it.
"I'd have been better off doing a 5-10 year bid one time than going in time and time again for days, weeks and months for the last 15 years of my life."
T.I. went on to say that he planned to use this time to reflect on his experiences and use them to make a positive difference going forward.
"At one time I thought my motivation for continuing was for my fans, my partna Philant, my pops, my grandmama, even for the haters or the people I let down. But nah... I got to do this s**t for me!!!" he wrote.
"I'll be God damned if I've come all this way and made it through so much hell to let it go down like this! F**k that! If an hour in the dark is worth a second in the sun then pass me my motherf**kin' shades cause I'm ready to cash my darkest hours in... ASAP!!!"
