    First of all, TI didn't by the guns trying to be all hard and gangsta, he performed at a show and some envious idiots shot up the van him and is crew riding back to their hotel in, killing his best friend and manager. Subsequently he started getting death threats by phone. It's not really easy to get a STAR's number, so someone dug deep to get a hold of him Being paranoid, from the streets and access to money for machine guns(which would not have been illegal through the proper channels if he was not a felon) he made a stupid choice. Saying 'I need more security' and telling the police 'I'm being harrassed' is hard for macho type personalities. I personally feel I can protect my family better than anyone else, if I have the 'means'. Yeah, he went to jail. What does that have to do with this? There aren't any details in this story, probable cause for the search, type of substance. He's a grown man making grown man decision's and HE will have to deal with consequences, why are y'all so mad? Oh yeah, young black, millionaire. If he was driving a pick up with a nobama bumper sticker and got busted for meth, that would have been okay!

    He has a song called 'Bring Em Out.' I don't know if he meant the police, though.

    This is hilarious. Im a huge T.I. fan and have been since i hears his first single. He is a great musician but is still also a man who has his own demons to deal with. No one ever said you had to be perfect in order to tell kids or show them the correct way to do things. I mean who better than someone who know all the wrong ways of doing it. Just because he has a lot of money that does not mean he is magically changed. Most of you are probably parents are u perfect? I do not think so. There have been comments made about him glamorizing "gansta" you obviously have not listen to any of his albums because it is quite the contrary. As a fan im upset because i want to see him doing well and making better decisions with his life and for his family. As a man I understand that there are many habits that u form and are hard to break. He made another mistake and has to pay the consequences no matter who he is. Let the rece issue go im a black man and i understand that as white people you just dont get it. Our lives are quite different but at the end of the day we are just people trying to make enough money to feed our families and occasionally do something we actually want to do. Its very sad to see that everything on here is based on a sterotype or jealousy because of his stature. Its like we forgot that the reason these people are "celebrities" and role models because we made them that way. We should all get off our high horse because most of you probably this early already had a cig, a shot of some type of alcohol, or even smoked your first joint of the day. If you dont do those thing fine but there is lot that you can work on about yourself. These peoples lives are none of our business. Just because there chosen career generates a higher income for them does not give us the right to dictate hoe they should live there lives. No one told you to be a doctor, lawyer, custodian, teacher, whatever you are and no on is asking or prying into your life. Everyone of us makes decisions and has to live with them let him live with his.
