    The *real* problem here is that morons like TI and hollywood fools are actually idolized. They make *way* too much money, have *way* too little talent, and ..frankly ..deserve a minuscule fraction of what they've got.

      I agree that there are better role models to look up to, however in response to your comment about how much money they get; have you really looked at the music industry? Record Companies get a large portion of record sales, leaving artists with only a small amount. True entrepreneurs figure out how to make their money by marketing and performing live. I wouldn't say its easy for them to get rich, it takes some intelligence.

      Actually they deserve more, and with no possibility of parole.

    Ohhh, man... What a shame. Isn't he on probation? I was really rooting for him.
    I don't even care about his personal weed/drug use. Parents need to stop looking to celebrities to be an example to their kids. I just wish he would have been smarter and left that sh- at home. Guess it is back to the concrete hotel... That's a shame.

    1. It's very sad that Tiny got wrapped up in this and arrested also...

    2. I wonder what was the "controlled substance" that was found?

    3. And he has way to much to loose, so I'm having really hard time believing he was crazy enough to blow it... Makes me wonder if someone in his posse's setting him up out of jealousy???

    3. He's was arrested in Cali, so IF he gets jail time he BETTER get out in a few days since Lindsay and Paris did... SMH

    So..I read the headline and I see the word "allegedly" meaning nothing has been proven. Yet, the majority of you have seem to have already rendered his guilty verdict. I was deeply saddened at ALL of the racial and stereotypical undertones that resides in the majority of the comments made. There was one who said the if ou think rappers (or any entertainer) is a role model then the problem lies at home. The fact that he didn't finish school but still rose to the top is an accomplishment in my eyes (and he did know his father by the way). We can easily sit in our homes and say how dumb/stupid he was, but we're not him and can't really say what would we would do if we were actually in that situation. I also saw one person comments on his musical talents..all I ave to say is if you never bought a T.I. Cd or listened to any of his music, how would you know he sampled? What this sound like to me (referring to the comments) is a lot of "bandwagon fans" throwing stones.

    I realize this is unrelated, but please learn proper English before publicly posting your opinions... just in this thread (so far), three separate people misused "their" when they meant "they're," "here" when they meant "hear," and "your" when they meant "you're."
    No one will take you seriously if you can't spell!
