Rapper T.I. is headed back to the slammer. The Grammy Award-winning artist was sentenced to serve 11 months in jail on Friday for violating the terms of his probation after he was arrested in September on suspicion of possessing ecstasy.

"I screwed up. I screwed up big time and I am sorry," the singer told U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell, (via ABC News) who also ordered him to serve a year of supervised release.

The 30-year-old rapper has won three Grammy Awards, and has been nominated 12 times. He has also accelerated his way up the hip hop charts.

His most recent run-in with the law was Sept. 1 in Hollywood, when police pulled over T.I. and new wife Tameka Cottle and said they found drugs in his vehicle.
