A best-selling rapper filmed an unauthorized video at the Fulton County Jail while out on work release from another jail, embarrassed county officials said.
Part of a video for rapper Clifford Harris, whose stage name is T.I., was shot Thursday night.
An Atlantic Records spokesman for the rapper did not return calls for comment.
Harris' first album, “I'm Serious,” was released in 2001. His second album, “Trap Muzik,” was a best-seller on the charts last year.
Harris was serving jail time in neighboring Cobb County on a probation violation when he received permission to leave the jail to make the tape at the Fulton County Jail, Cobb County Chief Deputy Sheriff Lynda Coker said.
A spokesman for Fulton County Sheriff Jackie Barrett said she had no idea that a rap video was being filmed inside the 3,200-inmate jail. Deputies apparently allowed “four or five” men to enter the seventh floor with a hand-held camcorder, Barrett said.
Barrett said the deputies would be disciplined.
