    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

This is my 2 time on reading this blog and like I say all the time keep your head up pimpin and No trouble don't last always. Diva4Real is a 100% dedicated fan and it is because of you that I have embraced so much technology u are inspiring so many people and I just hope you realize that! Real people understand a struggle and recognize that we are all human and none of us are perfect. So I personally wish you and Boss Lady many more successes to come. Gotta to keep it 100 Diva4Real is so happy to see a minority brother make it. Just remember with much success comes great pain!

Nobody can judge us but God and WE ALL make mistakes and I mean WE ALL..and a lot of us make them more than once( we just dont get caught)..I commend you for owning your mistakes and not being afraid to face them..I'm praying God's strength for you and a peace that surpasses all understanding...Now hurry up and GET OUT!!!! Your supporters LOVE YOU and are rooting for YOU!...Blessings

T.I...i dont know you but you have gained my respect over the past two years, at first i was going to write you off as one of those ghetto niggas who just rap about their car rims but ive seen and heard songs that were different and candid. I sort of related, with your "swag" persay. But this..this has to stop. Im not judging but from a semi new fan looking from the outside, its like this, i want to support you, i look forward to all your works but do i have to keep waiting a year for you to perform? to see a movie? now, if i take a conspiratorial stance this whole thing could be a set up.which it does sound like you are the fall guy. but if not it has to end. stay out of jail. please, for your fans sake and most of all your kids. and really for yourself. it can't be healthy just being locked up 23 hours and no where to go. it kills the soul little by little. it turns you into an animal. TI i hope for the best for you. but look at it this way, its like you hit me, and say you own up to your mistakes but then turn around and hit me again...we can't keep having this man. keep your head up and get out of prison and stay out, being the fall guy or not. be smarter and know that you are being targeted anything you do will be watched because there are haters out there who do want to see you fail. -it might sound critical and granted i dont know the full, im concerned for you homie and want you to succeed without all the bs. I will continue to support you unless you smite me again

remember "believe half of what you see and none of what you hear..."- i hope this was the case.

God bless my brother.

You're right! I know that No Mercy's gonna be great - I've been waiting for it ever since it was supposed to be released on my birthday August 17! :D You do what you gotta do, my man! You still have your #1 fans, your fam, and the rest of us out here (at least me fo sho!)! Like you said in "Get Back Up", everybody makes mistakes and have to deal with the consequences. Your life is in the limelight so it gets shed on the most. Nevermind that, keep God in your sights and all will follow thereafter, but we would LOVE to see you around so people know that you are great! :) Blessings and looking forward to the other album we know you're gonna be puttin out once you come out! :)

I love you too, not as an artist, or musician, or rapper, I've never even met you, but I love you because of who you are, and that's a child of God. NEVER FORGET THAT! Because when you're still in your mess, that means God is still with you and has NOT left you. Now how many people can say that?

The video was great loved what more could you ask for in track the king of the south with the prince of rnb... now that is killa coloration. people makes mistake no one is ever ever perfect in life tip! just like you said in new single "I admit, yeah, I done some dumb sh-t, disappointed everybody I know try not to hold that against me though my road to redemption has no GPS so guess the time must be invested for this to be manifested" where behind you every minute!!!!

FREE THE KING!!!!!!!

Don't worry brah, im with ya through whatever you go through, good or bad and im sure your fans will too. thats some heartfelt shit you wrote down and i know that album coming out will tear shit up. Even though we live in different countries, love and friendship holds through whatever we go through. im with you bro, you tore shit up on Takers which was amazing, and you will again with your new album. Don't be to hard on yourself, we all make mistakes, as you said in your new single, we are human, we fuck up. Can't wait for December !!!!! You'll always be the King of the South and my favourite rapper T.I. I send my heart out to you man.

I don't know if you will read this Tip, but thank you, your words, your life, the song truly touched me. See we all go through hard times( my husband and I lost our jobs recently), and when we are humbled by situations or circumstance It is a thing of wonder to feel that there may be at least one person out there who knows what it is like to be brought down too, and still encourages himself and others to get back up, that is truly beautiful Tip. Thank you, I needed that, no matter what you have done, no matter what other people say about you,know that I still can see that the Lord has given you a sincere and loving heart, don't let anyone make it cold! My Goodness how many times in a day do we all sin, in our minds in our hearts in our actions??? We are not here to judge, but we are sent to love one another, and I am sending you and your family lots of love from above, and from the deepestplace inmy heart. and I want you to know that I am proud of you, not for sinning but for repenting and being honest, The Lord keepsputting you in a position to show the way. I pray the Lord,keeps you strong and uses you powerfully in the lives of others where you are and all over. You're a good man who just needs to get on another path, just like me, just like most of us. Sometimes we build up false foundations, that are not stable, put our attentions on things that can be destroyed instead of things eternal, this passage strenghtens me through this time of loss, I hope it will you too, T, I hope that when you get through the fire you have laid up for yourself immense treasures up in heaven, that no one can take away! God Bless you and yours:
"Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work. "--

no matter how many times we fell down, we have the skill to get back up. and we will recognize that we fall down because we are going forward, stepping the one step, and getting over something. and we will notice there are people who help us. but, when we gave up to get back up, thats the end. keep going forward, and see what we have done, so we can see the better next step. thats how we live in a life.... thank you for this song. love you

Amanda's picture

To begin I love your new song, just like I have loved all of your previous songs. When we make mistakes we learn from them and that is what you are doing. You are a courageous example for people to follow. You are brave and honest and my heart goes out to you and your family. I am sorry that you must go thru these things in the public eye however you are showing that you are only human and people need to see that too. So, I will continue to pray for you and your family and wish that you get home where you belong. Lots of Love!
