    A Message From T.I. #2
    Posted by      

    Thank you to all that took the time to check out my new video GET BACK UP with my homie Chris Brown. And a bigger thanks to those of you who decided to comment (good & bad). To all of you who say “He should practice what he preaches” and “How could he do something so stupid…AGAIN?” You’re absolutely right and I couldn’t agree with you more. But you know what? As history has shown us before, I find my greatest inspiration during my darkest hours. So all fans of music, T.I. or not, should be able to agree that NO MERCY will surely be my best work yet. After all isn’t that what it’s all about? If I never went to prison, never did drugs, never f’ed up again, did everything right and never made great music….would you even care enough to comment on T.I.? Doubt it, so bear that in mind while you jump to your conclusions guys. Martin Luther King once said “Notice not the comments of your enemies but the silence of your friends.” So although I’m still in touch…watching, reading and listening, I’m not concerned with what negative people say more than I am with what positive people don’t. Guess that’s enough for now... Love you all still, whether you still love me or not. REAL TALK!!! And I would like to give a special I LOVE U to @star_omg and @tinymajormama. - Tip

I agree with you TIP. We all make mistakes because we are all human beings. NOBODY is perfect. As we make mistake, we grow up and be better people. But what the important thing is not to make same mistakes again, I guess. no matter what you do, what people say about you, I am still your huge fan. I'm looking forward to listen to your new works; NO MERCEY. Good luck with your future works too!

I'm not mad at T.I at all for what happened. I'm mainly disappointed about it because I want to see him and his team succeed. He's a great artist and is probably a good person and a good father that doesn't deserve what he got no matter what anybody says. They should have put him in rehab like Robert Downey Jr. or given him probation like Paris Hilton after she got caught in Vegas with cocaine. But we know there's an obvious difference between Paris Hilton and Clifford Harris (ya'll know where I'm going with this) Either way, yes it wasn't a smart move and he has to live with it by himself for the next 11 months so I have no judgement only sorrow that his dam cd ain't out already I've been patiently waiting for it (lol). T.I will regain his focus and will be better than ever when he returns. I'm a father & husband so I can only imagine the immense pain he must feel being away from his family. Right now nothing else matters but him staying in touch with the people that love him, his family, friends, and his die hard fans. T.I regardless of anything I got a lotta love for you man and probably wouldn't have made it as far as you have if I was rich because I would have been acting a dam fool. REAL TALK!!!!!! ET from VA

That is really a great song and the words are so true. Don't worry about the negative things said because you can't please some people No Matter What you do. I am a true fan and I will ride or die with you to the end. So brush yourself off and GET BACK UP.

Well of course you dont know me, but i feel like i know u to an extend through your music. On v-103 you said you were waiting for God to reveal your purpose in life. Mr. Harris, your purpose in life is your family, friends, music, and even enemies. Ying and yang must co-exist and how would we be able to appreciate our achievements without the struggles of climbing the ladder riddled with hate and destruction. But with every step up you have accomplished another milestone and that much wiser. Your friends, and I hope you have true friends, are enhanced by knowing you. Every person learns from other people without realizing it. You see how others are living and observe and take that and enhance your own life with it. Your music is inspirational and touches so many people and help people get through some of the worst times in their lives.
I know that your music has been touching my life since late middle school, about eight to nine years now. I hear your lyrics and even though the story in the song may not word for word go with my life, but I can take what is going on in my life and plant it perfectly in your songs so hearing your music keeps me going through my hardest moments. Lastly, your family should be enough. I dont know how many children you have, but I do know about your son with Mrs. Harris aka Tiny, and from looking in his eyes you should see fullfillment in life. I have had problems with depressions for 13 years and I am 21 now. I felt as if I had no future purpose in life and I was waiting for God to reveal what I was here for. I became pregnant and once I saw my little girl, I knew. I want to live for her, if no one else. I want to change my life and be a better person for her. God knew what he was doing and she is my blessing. Your child and children are your blessings and your purpose. I love you and have never met you. You are my "go to" when I get sad. I pray that this reaches you and that you remain safe. Hope to meet you one day.

T.I., I'm eighteen, white, middle-class, and I don't have a single offense on my record. The hardest thing I've touched is coke. (what college student doesn't try it?) I didn't sling rocks on the corner, didn't worry about cops harassing me, and I've lived a financially stable life. However, your music opened my eyes to a completely foreign perspective. Your experiences make you who you are. It makes for good music inspiration. But all I gotta say man is stop fucking up. Don't take your success for granted though. Of all possible things to do with your success, this is what you do? Come on man.

T.I. thanks for your message. Your true fans really care about you and will not abandon you, don’t you even worry about that. But, please read the comment from: yeaisaiditandwhat. To some people the comment may seem a bit harsh, but just like the reality you speak which touches me, so was the message to you by, yeaisaiditandwhat and I don't consider it being "hater" I read comments of others so that when I start to write It's not repetition. You are very intelligent. Love the song with you and Chris. Stay as strong as possible and we will see you soon. You, your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

TI....just to let u kno to continue to hold ur head up very HIGH. We ARE NOT perfect and if we were then we are NO earthly good. I love u no matter what and I'll ALWAYS be behind u in whateva!! We ALL fall down at some point but we just continue to get back up....the only one to judge us it our GOD and u will stand alone. So for to say that is to say this....keep pushing until u get it right...no pain no gain. ALWAYS stay true to urself..that's the only way you'll get ahead in life. People...NEVER SAY WHAT WOULDN'T HAPPEN TO U and U DON'T KNOW HOW or WHAT YOU'LL DO IN A VERY DIFFICULT SITUATION!!!! GOD watches us all!!!!

Can't wait till NO MERCY drops Dec. 7.

REAL TALK:!! your music has helped pull my ass from the gutter a couple of times, I can relate to what you're sayin. Cut your losses and FUCK the haters...I always remind the people in my life "either you can hate it or love it, but I am who I am, and that's cool with me at the end of the day" Keep it Pimpin and Keep it Real Tip! much luv from me, and I know I keep saying this all the time on here, and maybe it's useless what I type here, but if when you get out you are really serious on the restaurant idea I'm your girl to help, for real. MONEY MONEY MONEY BABY! I'm with you, I'm already lookin to the future with you, cause you "gotta get back up!!" right??! hahhahahahah! one love.

While the truth hurts in all the negative comments thrown at you these days T.I. look it it for what it is,the "TRUTH". Yes you have coat riders and jockers that will stand by you and feed into the oh whoa is me attitude you seem to display now,however true fans of your music, need you to do it better than what you are doing and the excuse of your having a drug problem is just that "an excuse". I get the impression you are smarter than what is coming out of your mouth about the why of where you were when you were pulled over, for what you obviously knew was wrong. While I love your music, I am not a fan of rap at all. I love the words you spit and the meaning behind them period. You yourself know the blessing you have been favored with,why spit in the face of your blessing? Whatever your background,you are now financially blessed to live a life those from the same background dream of,yet you keep throwing it away with the same crap you keep calling a mistake when the media gets wind of and pass it alone to your fans. You should have enough of sitting in a cell, sharing breakfast,lunch and dinner with other men day in and out. I don't care if I am called a HATER or any other name your crazed fans want to call me. I just want you to get it at some point, that your blessings come from God and what you do with your blessing is up to you. I believe you believe in him,however I also believe you take for granted his blessing. You have children that will one day know and understand their fathers life. Is this it?, Is this what you want them to know? One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching. #yeahisaidit.

"The sinner or the one who judged him, who was wrong first?" great line, and the answer I think is the one who judged another. After all, we all make mistakes

No mercy . . . Coming soon !!
God bless you T.I.
