T.I. Heads To The Banger

Hip Hop Artist T.I. – born Clifford Harris Jr. – will be enrolling in what has become the anti-higher education destination for too many African-American males.  Mr. Harris is headed to prison for his role in trying to purchase weapons which is a crime for felons like himself. The shame of it all is that he’s sold several million cds (4 platinum cds), starred in motion pictures, a father and a mentor to numerous young people.

Let’s see if a year away from the glam life will actually rehab this brother… let’s hope so.

    Usually, I would agree with your assessment of felon’s character but in this case I beg to differ. The purchase of the weapons occurred shortly after a close friend of his was gunned down in an event where T.I. felt the attack was meant for him. In addition, law enforcement is not here to protect blacks especially young black men. It is against their paradigm to protect those whom they consider the suspect. In many instances it is either a strong faith in GOD or a weapon that provide the comfort of safety.

      You know I luv you my man… but that’s weak!!! Bruhs need to stop lickin shots in the like it’s Boys In The Hood (’91). T.I. is a felon, he cannot purchase firearms. Check this… why ddn’t he go to a gun shop to get his weapons? He would have been arrested on the spot after they ran the background check. He was wrong regardless of his situation.

      This cat has sold millions of cds and is a multiplatinum recording artist. He has the $ to have 24/7 security and the means to avoid those shady places where you know trouble is going to pop off. He was weak and is now paying for his mistake. I respect him for owning up to that and making changes in his life. He had a statement that I hope gets much play about being hopeful of saving at least one person (and hopefully millions) from making his mistakes.

      That’s being a man, but he was stupid before he got caught (like we all are).

      I can say a whole lot ’bout the cops and Black Men, but what’s the point. Bruhs need to put the burner down and pick up the books.
