Rapper Hero Returning to Prison
T.I. can't do whatever he likes after all. The troubled rapper is heading back to prison after getting arrested for possession of drugs in September. Unfortunately for T.I., he was still on probation for a weapons conviction where he served time for trying to buy machine guns back in 2008. Now, T.I. (aka Clifford Harris) will serve another 11 months in prison for his latest infraction. The charges stem from a September traffic stop where T.I. and his bride Tameka "Tiny" Cottle were found with ecstasy on them. On his day of reckoning, T.I. pleaded with the judge and blamed a drug problem for his actions. He told the judge, "I screwed up big time, and I'm sorry. I'm truly and sincerely sorry. I don't want and I don't need to use drugs anymore. I want them out of my life." Sadly for T.I., the judge wasn't buying what T.I. was selling. He told the music man that he "had about the limit of second chances." He must turn himself in on November 1. In addition to serving almost a year in prison, T.I. can also look forward to a year of supervised release following completion of his upcoming sentence. Despite his current legal woes, T.I.'s record label Atlantic Records is $tanding by their man. A rep issued the following statement, "T.I. is such an important and valued member of our Atlantic family. We offer to him and his family our continued love and support during this very difficult time." Ironically, T.I. just talked a man out of committing suicide this past week. The popular rap fixture showed up at the scene where a man was threatening to jump off a building in Atlanta. After hearing about the incident, T.I. managed to get the guy to step back. Some people believe the entire episode was a publicity stunt. Either way, T.I. is going to live his life -- he'll just be doing it behind bars.
