November 10, 2010 2:50 PM ET

T.I. will be under some tough probation restrictions when he's released from prison next year, according to TMZ.

Under the terms of his year-long probation, the rapper, who began serving an 11-month sentence for a parole violation early this month, will not be allowed to leave the Northern District of Georgia for anything but "verified employment within the United States." In other words, he's barred from leaving the country.

He is also forbidden from leaving the Northern District for more than seven days per month, and is prohibited from driving a vehicle, or owning firearms (the cause of his last prison term, from 2009 until earlier this year) or other dangerous weapons or devices.

Finally, he'll have to take part in a drug-and-alcohol testing and treatment program "under the guidance and supervision of the United States probation officer and if able, contribute to the cost of services of such treatment."

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
