T.I. Discusses Firearms Arrest, Misconceptions
T.I. has a number one album with ‘Paper Trail’ and single, as well as a one-year jail term in his future. Denise Quan spoke with the Atlanta rapper, who talked about his arrest on illegal firearms possession and the fallout. “There’s people out there who would rather kill you, than to tell you good luck, or I’m happy for you,” T.I. said. “So until you understand that you wouldn’t understand my train of thought. Not to say that it was right, it’s just my best explanation.” He added that the biggest misconception about him is that he’s “just a big hot headed thug, another ignorant rapper.” Video of the segment at Turner.com has since been removed.
