    A Message From T.I. #3
    Posted by      

    This experience is truly a pain I have never felt before and that's saying a lot for a nigga who's been down locked up as many times as I have. I see this as a real ass whoopin'. The kind you don't just go back outside to play afterwards. You take ya ass to bed and don't come out of your room until it's time to go to school. I don' t know what effect this will have on my life moving forward but I'm certainly sick and mother f*cking tired of going to jail, juve, prison, the pen, correctional facilities or whatever else you want to call it. I'd have been better off doing a 5-10 year bid one time than going in time and time again for days, weeks and months for the last 15 years of my life. Even though it's been a long road, I'm still standing, barely but nevertheless still standing. At one time I thought my motivation for continuing was for my fans, my partna Philant, my pops, my grandmama, even for the haters or the people I let down. But nah... I got to do this shit for me!!! I'll be God damned if I've come all this way and made it through so much hell to let it go down like this! F*ck that! If an hour in the dark is worth a second in the sun then pass me my mother f*ckin' shades cause I'm ready to cash my darkest hours in...ASAP!!! A lot of folks had fathers or father figures in the house to raise them into manhood. I'm not trying to make any excuses for my situation but my father was a hustler that lived in New York. My uncle was a local big time dope boy turned 10 year federal inmate. My mother and grandparents did the best they could but I found my manhood in the trap and in prison systems. But I found it. And nan one of mine will ever have to feel the cold tight grip of a handcuff or grace the presence of a jail cell if I can help it. Over my dead body! So if you can't respect that you ain't rocking with my movement then Fuck you dog! I know a bunch of mother f*ckers who are.....

I wish you nothing but the best!! I am sure you will follow through with your words. Your song with Keri Hilson, is so very true. My man was in prison for 2.5 years, it was tough. He is out not and taking the same attitude as you, not more lock ups. So Awesome song! Best of Luck and I hope that your times flies by for you and your family! God Bless!

That was the hardest part foe me was being away from my little girl at the time she was only 2 years i got out a month before she turned 4 and it was rough. Im a single parent and if it wasent for my family taking care of her i dont know what i would have done. Just stand strong and keep your head up hommie i know me as one of your biggest fans will stand behind you and i know all your outher fans will to.It seems like you got a good women standing strong behind you as well. Just hang in there man i know you can do it and it will be over in a flash. Dont get down on your self bro we all make mistakes and fuck what them hatters say alls they are going to do is try and shine why the KING is away but there is only one king in the game and thats you man. So hang in there and be safe ill keep you in my prayers. And man i cant wait till the new. album comes out no mercy i know one thing i bet you want show no mercy on them hatters when you get out. And then all them hatters will fade away because they will know the kings out and he diddent come to play. Well hommie stay strong and ill holla at you later... By the way i love that new joint with and Eminem thats shits off the chain and i just know the album will be to. Peace bro

I just want to encourage you! I read your post and listened to your song when people love you they love you no matter what.... jail 1million times they still love you. Love endures ALL THINGS. I see you the way God sees you. David was a KING also, look at all the things he did wrong not once, not twice, not 3 times, but over and over again yet God said he was a man after his own heart. Do not be fooled by those who appear to have clean hands because their hearts can be very dirty and there is nothing scarier than a dirty heart. You are a man with a pure heart and a Christ-like boldness, what man falls in front of millions and stands as that fallen man and apologizes with true sincerety thru song, and admits his faults. You may fall a million times but the Lord will lift you up. God will let things happen to us that looks like wow I did it again, but believe me God is working and know this "ALL THINGS" work for the good of those that love the Lord and are the called according to his purpose! God chastens the son he loves he will not allow you to lose all that he has blesses you with because he loves you, therefore he will correct you. Just like a baby if they touch that stove burn that hand enough they stop. May God bless you(and your family) and keep you make his face shine upon you and give you peace in Jesus name Amen

You might want to give rap up all together. It's a major thing when you can stand in front of 10's of thouands of people while they all stare at you watching your every move and listening to everything you say,word for word. God only give a few of us that much power and out of the few with that power only a fraction of them actually uses it for God. I think your a smart guy. I think God has chosen something else special for you. God is going to keep wacking you up-side your head until you give in to him and do his great work. A regular preacher may save 100 souls in his lifetime but a guy like you will save millions. It's not about your action it's about your purpose.

Keep you head up TIP, you the realest nigga in the game and keep doing your thing. Just learn from this experience in jail that you will not ever need to go to jail again. Stay positive and get through this down time, cause God will be with you still when the good times come ahead.
Take care, God bless you and keep believing in yourself.

ps: make sure you don't end up in jail again please, the fans need you, your family etc., the government is just trying to take down rappers because they think it will make things better...
just lookout yourself; you got so much money, you should be on your toes and avoiding police :P lolol
STAY STRONG cuz we the true fans will always stay by your side (:

You're still The King and I still love you're music. Im a 52-year-old grandmother of 2. My son came home last Thanksgiving and when we went for a ride I was jamming to your music. He wanted to know when I started liking rap. I said TI is the MAN. I pray you stay strong; you're in my prayers. Hopefully time will go by quickly and this will be the last time you have to go through his. Hurry home to the ATL where you belong (not Hollywood, not Miami) but the ATL. I know you had to promote your movie out there in Hollywod, but ATL is where you belong. Don't let that "wife" of yours pull you down and lead you down the wrong path. It's so strange that right after your "marriage", this happens.?? We do have to learn from our mistakes don't we. Motivation is my anthem. It is so true and it keeps me going through some of the drama I face daily, along with all your other music When I ride on Bankhead, Ride With Me is what I'm booming. My 7-year-old grandson loves your music too. Your music reaches all ages and genders. Keep it coming. Luv always, PYS

Stay strong up in there. Just think of all the reasons that you have to get through this dark time and God will be your guiding light through it. Keep believeing in yourself cos we all still believe in you.

T.I., YOU NEED TO GET DOWN AND YOUR KNEES RIGHT NOW AND PRAY! THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WE ARE TO PRAY WITHOUT CEASING! PRAY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO RELEASE YOU! MY GOD IS STILL IN THE MIRACLE BUSINESS. TEST HIM. EVEN THOUGH YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE PRAYING, DO IT ANYWAYS. HE'S WAITING. AND NEVER FORGET: "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit." -PS. 34:18. GOD IS THERE WITH YOU RIGHT NOW. START TALKING TO HIM AND WATCH HOW THINGS WILL CHANGE. BUT YOU MUST BELIEVE AND NEVER DOUBT HIM.-

Just stay strong and keep God first in whatever you do T.I. becasuse God is the only one that knows our future as long as we stay in faith and listen to him. Remember just stay strong and keep your head up and everything will be okay.

Well said T.I.,stay strong and keep your head up...what you wrote was real and deep,and I concur with you on everything you said, especially when you said that you gotta do it for you..that's true because you come first and everything else is secondary,and that's how it's supposed to be.These experiences,even though they are difficult,will make you a stronger and wiser person,which you already are,but every experience is different,even if it's in the same facility.I wish you the best of luck,and wish the time would speed forward or they would reduce your sentence,so you can get out of there...and this is from one of your real fans..when it's all said and done,and you get out of there,I know you will bounce back from this mistake and I know you won't be back in there again.Stay up bro..because even through negativity,there is always something positive that comes out of it...you're a real ass person and rapper,and the same way you help motivate me with messages in your song..I hope what I said can do the same for you..hol' it down my nigga!!!

T.I. just because you know some aspects of your problems does not mean they are excuses, there is an explanation for living what you've learned and they way you've learned. It is included in Social Psychology or Developmental, but we also have the choice of Free Will and it is a hard choice if you don't know the other directions to go. Now despite that you may have a lot of money and able to provide for your children, what they see and comprehend is that is is acceptable to go to jail/prison, etc. and no words you can say to them will overpower what they see and experience. I understand continuous mistakes and we ALL should not lie to ourselves, we all have. To accept someone for who they really are is to accept life in general. I still love T.I. because from what I know, from my PERCEPTION, he's real...A REAL HUMAN BEING...NOT GOD! I'll keep ya in my prayers

The way I see it you need to be sick and tired of being sick and tired. Apparently you weren't before. Maybe you are now? You need some help TI, as in professional help. You can't manage your own life and seriously it is messing you up. I have been there and let me tell you, if you could manage your own life you would have by now. Get some help. Get honest about whats going on with substances and the part they play in all of this. Change people, places and things you are around. Most of all TI, it's time to get humble. Don't believe me? Keep doing things your way and see what happens next. If that thought scares the hell out of you, you're on the right track.

I understand you
All things will be all right

TI...I hear you and appreciate your position but sometimes in life we need a real azz whoopin to get our ACT together for the benefit our ourselves in order to benefit others...Our kids deserve better and yours need you at home...I am praying for you man because I have faith and believe in you in that you will do the right thing going forward....Love the positive influence of your music....

Amen, pray to God with a strong voice, God is always gonna be there no matter what, he was ridin' wit you everywhere, even the times when you locked up. This world is just full of demons tryn'a bring real niggas down, but da reason why we so real is because we don't let them win, and they absolutely hate, so they gonna try harder n harder to bring you down, you a soldier of God T.I. your music is about the most I can relate to. We soldiers, n God has had a special purpose for you. I read a article about a guy you saved from killin' himself,, YOU HAVE NOT WASTED ANY OF YOUR LIFE,, without your experiences, you wouldn't be able to reach to many in the struggle, BUT YOU DO, because you seen what dey seen, and lived a life similarity in conjunction with theirs. I feel where you coming from, I served 15 months in Iraq and I was trapped in a sandbox of hell, but God was wit me throughout every step of my life. You have a very big purpose to play in this world, ask God to give you guidance, knowledge, site, strength, and wisdom, he will show you the path, you just have to take it, you a soldier, that means u fight and stand for something, what is that, its fightin' for peace, love, and unity. its a war between good and evil and WE are caught in the middle, and we have already been handpicked by God to fight for him, weather thru music or whatever, in the bible it clearly states God had sent soldiers "brave souls" to war. The world is corrupt because there is no guidance, no real leaders, and its about time someone put their foot down and started fightin' for what we need. Too many people in poverty, way too many. I have two new songs on my face book page , im not tryna get at you for a record deal, i feel God wanted me to get this to you. my artist name on the face book is "LG RYDA" 2 new songs, one is judgment day and the other is called shoot to kill em demons. But yo GOD BLESS YOU , and stay strong because we can only get stronger.

Sincerely, Lg Ryda
