T.I. appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ in Hollywood the other night. The rapper had a laugh after getting a pat down from Jimmy’s first guest Sharon Osbourne before discussing his machine gun purchases, serving time in Arkansas – which he called “the armpit of America”, meeting some “real cool cats” behind bars, getting hit up for jobs by the other prisoners, teaching a self enrichment class during his stay, his new album and the collaborations on the disc, and whether his career benefitted from the prison time.
The interview and a skit where T.I. played “Magnum T.I.” has since been removed at YouTube.
