ATLANTA - T.I. was ordered Monday to remain in custody on federal weapons charges until a bail hearing later this week.

T.I., born Clifford Harris, appeared briefly in federal court Monday. The government wants to keep the 27-year-old rapper in custody as the case proceeds, but his attorneys planned to argue for his release on bond at a hearing scheduled for Friday.
