T.I. is finally catching a break with a judge.

As TMZ reports, a judge was so impressed with the rapper's behavior on probation that he has lightened the rapper's probation. T.I.'s probation officer submitted a request to extend Tip's out-of-state travel from seven days to twelve days, and yesterday a judge agreed to the request.

The probation officer says the rapper is a model probationer, having stayed out of trouble the past few months, as well as completing all his required drug and alcohol counselling.

Tip has five months to go on supervised release.
