I'm using the above promotional picture from T.I. vs TIP seeing that his situation is directly correlated what that album was about. Gotta leave the streets alone and make wiser decisions!
T.I. pleaded guilty to possession of unregistered machine guns and silencers, unlawful possession of machine guns and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
The actual sentencing was deferred “to allow him to perform a unique and extensive program — at least 1,000 hours — of community service. That service will focus on using his high public visibility and his talents to tell at-risk young people about the mistakes he has made and to educate them about the dangers of violence, guns, gangs and drugs.”
U.S. Attorney David Nahmias said he will remain “under strict bond conditions” during the next year and under the agreement he will have to serve a year in prison and three years of supervised home detention, perform a total of 1,500 hours of community service and pay a $100,000 fine.
Failure to fulfill his obligations will net Harris a “much longer prison sentence,” Nahmias said.
T.I. spoke to the media briefly after the hearing.“I’d like to thank God for blessing me with a second chance in life and success,” he said, adding that he takes the charges against him very seriously.“I’m looking forward to turning this negative time in my life into a positive,” he said. “I know I have a long road of redemption to travel.”
