    Message from T.I.
    Posted by      

    What up world? Been a minute. I’d like to thank you all for the thousands of letters, cards, books, pictures and words of encouragement. I’m truly grateful. I’m sure you already know I’m nearing the end of this chapter of my life, and looking forward to taking all of the things I’ve learned with me while leaving all the rest of the “BS” behind. I’ve been tuned in somewhat to what’s been happening out there. I can’t even begin to tell y’all how much being on the outside looking in, having to witness all that’s going on (and not going on) in the game affects me. Not being able to do what I love especially. It’s like a whole other sentence within itself. But I really do appreciate all the love, respect, shout outs and salutations during this very difficult period in my life. Everybody from da homies Weezy, Killa Mike, R. Rozay my lil bruh B.o.B, Terrence J (106 & Park) and my “durty” Nelly. Regardless of whether the gestures were the greatest or the smallest, they still meant the world to me. REAL TALK. The separation from my art has definitely sparked an inferno of inspiration that will soon be felt by all. As a matter of fact, to show my appreciation to those that have been in support of me and granted the requests of TEAM T.I. I’ll be releasing a record in the near future (couple of weeks tops) to hold y’all over til I get back in action. During this time of seclusion I have developed a mind full of thoughts, ideas, plans and strategies of change to incorporate into my professional endeavors, as well as my personal lifestyle. But none of them is as strong as my determination to conquer my own imperfections and my will to WIN NO MATTER WHAT!!!

    I love, respect and appreciate all those who have stood beside me and I have accepted those you didn’t. But one things for sure and two for certain. As long as the Most High blesses me with the ability to live and breathe….My campaign will continue!!! Stronger, smarter, bigger and better than ever. For those that doubt that…See me when they free me.

    Love King

" and i just answer them with "hey you know what? F*** you get a life! and follow that dirty one with a laugh.. hahahahaha.. ok enough of the story-telling :)) mmmm... i'm just wondering if you're planning to visit here in the philippines for a concert or a tour or a whatever.. i just really want to see you in person :) and if ever you grant my wish, pls locate your concert anywhere in Manila :)))

I will really appreciate if you'll read this personally :)))) so.. that's all i wanna say :) thanks to this site for getting in touch with my "IDOL" :))) hope to see you real sooooooon :))))) ay wait! just want you to know that you're the most handsome, most classy, neatest,and has the clearest pronuonciation of words/lyrics eveeeeeer!!!! in other words, you're SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!!loveyah :*

It is sad that ANY one has to go to jail. A long time ago some said to me "In order to get fucked you need to be in position". If we put ourselves in the position then we have no right to be angry at anyone but ourselves. Until we learn that there is another way to live then we are a victim. When we HEAR the information and are presented with opportunities and options then we have a choice. If we choose to put ourselves in a position to get fucked then we are volunteers. Stop volunteering to go to jail and do something different for your family and your fans.

Listen Tip, your fans all over the world, they will be with you no matter what. This period of your life will never change their attitude to you and your music. Don't care 'bout haters opinion, they will continue to hate, 'cause that's their job. Remember my words only God can judge us, cuz he created us from nothin'. Truly yours Christian from Poland.

Yep been a minute but its cool. Dont know if it is smart to release music when you are in jail because it will not get a push because you are in there no matter how good it is. No Mercy was a good album but I dont think it is fully appreciated because you are in there. Lastly, life is too short to keep wasting in jail. I know people in there early 30's battling HIV, Cancer, and so on, the odds are against them being on this earth too much longer, quit wasting your time, dont go back to jail unless somebody just put you in a situation where you gotta kill or be killed

Tip, what's good. This is one of your biggest fans, straight out of Detroit. I looked up to you as a mentor & a role model when you had the show on MTV and heard that you were going around the country talking to teens about basically real life. I wish I was in attendance for one of those events, but unfortunately, I never got the chance to attend one. I'll admit, I was disappointed when you had to go back to jail, but that still hasn't changed the love I have for you as an artist and a real man. All of your biggest fans are waiting for you to come back out & take over the game. Stay up, and your fans will be riding for you when you get out. It's The King, B___H!

oooo YEAH glad to get the letter an TIP answered alot of my questions thanks a stay strong

I sent you an e-mail but my sentiments bear repeating right here: I am 1 of your biggest fans over 40. I followed your reality show and was truly touched and impressed with the outcome/agenda. You have a gift (sweetie, you are a gift) to share and I wish you much success! Dont worry about your haters, make them motivators cause God is using you to not only get to our young generation but to get to my generation as well. Because of you, I try to understand and talk to my own children more than before and I allow them to be themselves without my conviction. Everything you have been through was perfectly ordered to fuel your leadership, inspiration and message to our young that only YOU can do (thats HIS plan)! Keep your head up and know that there are ppl out here praying for you and will be fans for life!! And always remember- there is NO man that can stop GOD's plan. LUV U

Some of the greatest man have been in jail, prison including Jesus (of course we know He was more than a man). This might be hard to realized but this could be the door to open up that Thriller type album inside you. Every enslaved person had to be free, the slaves, the abused person, the drug addict, the unfree country... it caused the enmancipation proclamation, laws against abuse, the 12 step program, a democratic country. I don't know what you need for your unfortunate situations to stop. I do believe you will rock us worst than crack when you drop what is inside you. I hear the honesty for us to examine our reality in your music--castle, get back up, and many others. Don't let the devil drive Tip, your human and we are mistake making people-forgive you if others dont cause thats a step to freedom.. We know the best thing in the world is understanding. I'm seriously praying for you to become all that God created you to be in your career and love.

I believe in your intentions and I am grateful to see your spirit is strong and not broken. I have missed your REAL music and positive messages and anxiously await your return. If not for you I would have given up on hip-hop long ago (too much trash in the game). Haters will always be haters but most importantly, YOU will always be THE KING! Be blessed
