Rapper T.I. heads back to prison

Rapper T.I. must serve another 11 months in a federal prison for
violating probation on a gun charges, a judge in Atlanta, Georgia, ruled

T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, begged U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr. for mercy, saying he needed help for his drug addiction, not more time in prison.

"I screwed up big time and I am sorry," Harris said during his probation revocation hearing Friday afternoon. "I am sincerely sorry. I am scared that you will send me to prison."

"Mr. Harris has had the limit of second chances," Pannell said as he imposed the sentence.

Harris must report to begin his sentence in two weeks, the judge said.

    These damn celebrities think their chit don't stink. Who does this guy think he is Lindsey Lohan. Enough with this crap. He can get drug help in prison. Fame is not a ticket for immunity. Affraid to go to jail? TOUGH. I've been in NA since 1990, still clean and I'm no celebrity. It's done every day so don't play the pity party, Do you time, get and stay clean and that says what kind of man you are.

    Only " Once Upon A Time In America" he had been born looking more like "Lindsey", "Paris" or "Rush", would he get chance after chance or mercy as he pleaded over and over begging leniency. Instead he resembles persons looking most like 50 "cents", "Lil Wayne" or "Jessy" Instead of the standard, imaginary "Blind Justice" and rehabilitation being exercised, "Blond Justice" and a prison cell was firmly imposed. What was TI thinking to ask for mercy ???!!!
