So long freedom!
T.I. treated fans, supporters, and family to a farewell concert in Atlanta, GA, on Sunday.
The rapper will be turning himself in today at noon to begin serving his year-long jail sentence at a minimum security federal prison in Arkansas, as he pleaded guilty to weapons charges for trying to buy unregistered guns from undercover federal cops.
His concert crowded 16,000 people into Philips Arena, where he performed all of his major hits and was accompanied by many of his collaborators. He also brought his five young children on stage as he told the audience: "I'm doing the best I can to get out there, man, and put something positive on these young kids, man."
Yes, very positive.
Look kids: You can go to jail AND still be famous. It's all about angles.
