Rapper TI (aka Clifford Harris) is on his way to jail. He plead out on FEDERAL weapons charges. Federal usually means really really bad. He wanted a lighter sentence.
U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr. will withhold levying a prison term for a full year. In the interim, T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, must complete between 1,000 and 1,500 hours of community service, which includes talking to kids about the dangers of guns, gangbanging and drugs, and pay a $100,000 fine.
In other words, maybe if he’s a good boy they’ll reduce his sentence?
T.I. was collared by agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Oct. 13, when he attempted to purchase three machine guns and silencers in a shopping center parking lot using his bodyguard as an intermediary.
What does an ARTIST need with THAT CRAP?!?
The arrest took place just hours before and blocks away from his headliner performance at the BET Hip-Hop Awards in his hometown of Atlanta.
Really – it just astounds me sometimes what people get themselves into, seriously. Do ANY of these yahoos ever step back and say, “Is this a good idea?”
