Farewell Atlanta, Hello Prison

| Filed under: T.I.


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.

Enjoy prison!

    he's an adult. he knows right from wrong and he should have never attempted to buy illegal guns…ESPECIALLY if he can't keep his dick in his pants and has to support 5 kids. wtf were you going to do with them you idiot??? show your kids how much easier a fully automatic weapon is to shoot compared to a semi?? dumbass.

  11. 11

    A year will be over in no time Atall. I think T.I. is sexy too theres something about him right?

  12. 12

    He seems genuine trying to get through to kids,cut him some slack.

  13. 13

    Re: xoxo_gossipgirl – Uh…he's had 5 kids since last year. It would be 6 but one of his sons was a stillborn =(. He also has a step-daughter.
    From IMDB-
    -> T. I. is father of Messiah YaMajesty Harris (b. 2000) and Domani Uriah Harris (b. 2001) with LaShon Dixon. He also has a daughter Dehjah Imani Harris, from a previous relationship. And with Tameka "Tiny" Cottle has three sons: Clifford King Harris III (b. August 2004), Llayah Amour Harris (died at stillbirth late night on March 21, 2007) and Major Philant Harris (b. May 2008) and he's the stepfather of Zonnique (daughter of Tameka from a previous relationship).

    He was just trying to protect himself and his family. Fuck the haters. TI is the shit.

    Whats gross is that he has made it and he still has to do all the things that are disgusting cliches like having 5kids already at such a young age,is he married no. And now another cliche he has to have a gun related prison sentence. Yes he's a great role model,wow.

  17. 17

    I like T.I. I worry about him being in prison in the south. He seems like a basically good guy, who was stupid and foolish. He definitely doesn't seem like a criminal type. I think he will earn his lesson from this and behave.
    At least he has teh courage to admit he is wrong and try to publically do something positive and constructive about it…not like Beat Dwon Brown who is a liar and a vile person.

    Sometimes it takes getting in trouble w/ the law to wake up - most people don't learn from other's mistakes, they must fuck up on their own to learn. At first, I didn't buy it - the community service, the show on MTV, etc. Over time though, I've come to believe that he is sorry for what he's done and he's trying to make the youth see the wrong in his actions before it become their actions. His music has become more positive, more so then most of the down south bullshit you hear. He's using his celebrity to show the youth that he did something that was illegal and he's paying the consequences. One day in jail boy, is a day too long…..

    Re: STFUalready – maybe if he'd pick real names (wtf is YaMajesty…..really tho, are they serious…????) people would know he had children…….what's next, DaPope………
    don't have a problem w/ TI but i doubt his children would ever get a call back for a job interview outside of mickey d's……..

  20. 20

    okay….so clifford harris would probably get a call back…….

  21. 21

    How dare you Prez even think of making TI look bad……Just like you have your sexual preference which I don't agree is right that is your preference were you like to take it most people would never….Don't judge him its not your place cause there is a whole lot people can say about you. At least he is trying to rectify the situation

    Re: SheriMoonFireFly – I got guns…come on over, we can do some target practice………Yippy……………((((SLOPPY KISS)))))

    perez never has his facts str8 anymore. and he is a big fat negative bitch.

  24. 24

    And baby you can shoot whoever you liiiiike.
    Yeah you can shoot whoever you liiiiike.

  25. 25

    I hate that you are so negative in regards to TI always, when he does so many positive things Perez

  26. 26

    haha, look at the face he's making…cheer up TIP, ur only going to be there for a few months since u bought your way off most of the time!

  27. 27

    His "wife" is such an ugly little troll!!! You'd think he could do a lot better than that!!!

  28. 28

    Re: UrMajestyMsG – Haaaaaaaaaaa its time to measure him up for some good fisting!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. 29

    perez hilton, you're such an uninformed idiot. why don't you do a little research before you make your judgments. since his arrest, TI has been doing many positive things. he did non-court ordered community service, has spoken extensively with kids and at schools about the dangers of gangs, and has also spoken out against guns and violence. his last album, paper trail, displayed a considerably different message and content than his previous albums. so it is already very obvious that he has made an effort to have a positive influence on kids.

  30. 30

    I thought his jail sentence was reduced to 60 days, and the other 300 days are taken as time served already?

  31. 31

    is that BBD!!!!!!!!! i will bail ya out brother………

  32. 32

    "bye, bye, Dick Head"……..Goodfellas

  33. 33

    FYI…He is in a Forrest City, AR prison just in case you want to be his penpal!

  34. 34

    He is soooo fake. He came out with that song (which IS good) and had that tv show on Mtv. It was SO obviously an attempt to get his sentence reduced.

  35. 35

    Re: Shaboo – Are you serious? He made himself look bad. If you are as successful as him why would you be buying guns in the first place. He should have thought about being so "positive" before…

  36. 36

    I feel so bad for him. I wish he didn't have to go and I can't wait until he comes back. :(

  37. 37

    Re: LaDiva – he definitely isn't going for two months. now your credit is gone, smarty.

  38. 38

    he has "hits", who knew!!! LMAO

  39. 39

    I loooooove T.I! Stay safe and take care! Aint i is a mean song! I love it!

  40. 40

    Re: 29 – soooo… 29, you must be stupid, T.I.'s kid's all five of them, yes ALL five belong to the same woman. his soon to be wife so looks like you put your dick in your mouth.

  41. 41

    I love TI. Come home safe bebe.

  42. 42

    I feel bad for him… =(

  43. 43

    Re: lilcrink57 – his kids definitely are NOT from the same woman. Two are from the same woman, one from another, and two from Tiny. Get right. I think three are from Tiny even.
