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."

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
