    T.I. Talks Suicidal Jumper Off the Ledge!
    Posted by      

    UPDATE: T.I. just called in to V103 to explain everything...listen here.

    Tonight T.I. played a major part in talking down a suicidal man off the ledge of a 22-story building in his hometown of Atlanta. Earlier this afternoon, police had responded to a 911 call regarding a man threatening to jump off a building. That building happened to be home to radio personality Ryan Cameron's Radio show. Once T.I. heard about the jumper on the radio, he called up Cameron and asked if there was anything he could do. Cam told Tip to come through, where he met authorities and recorded an encouraging video message which police then played for the jumper. Once the man saw the video he agreed to step off the ledge...where the two had a chance to talk things over!

    Head to AJC.com or TMZ.com for more info on the story.

I'm not a huge fan of rap/hip-hop what have you, but I have always liked allot of your music. When I saw that video and some of the interviews, of you talking about how you plan on changing your life for the better, and reaching people, and following God. I'm now one of those people countin on you. You'll be in my prayers, don't let the sentence get you down.

Many respects & props given to T.I, for stepping up & allowing GOD 2 use him and be a tool on earth. That is very commendable that T.I. took the time 2 go down their and help the jumper n po*po's in any way that he could. T.I. u have much more of an IMPACT in people's lifes then u may understand & realize. Keep ur heads up T.I. & TINY we all human n make mistakes no matter how big or how small the mistake was NO 1 WALKED this earth PERFECT but JESUS. so when u have haters mad cuz u doing right or u have haters happy cuz the devil attacked u, ur mission on earth aint 2 please the people (cuz every1 can't b pleased) but it is to fufil GOD's PLAN for ur life. Everything happens 4 a reason not by mistake or accident, its what u do when things happen n how u handle it. Saving a person's life ~T.I. I salute u. Keep up tha EXCELLENT GOD fufilling work T.I. and TINY cuz GOD has much in store for u both n ur precious children.

T.I. is a great man and a blessing from God. T.I. you really helped me get through some of the hardships in my life through your lyrics and experiences. Ultimately it is God, but the fact that you do not discredit the true source is what makes it so much more impeccable. You truly are an Angel. May your family continue to be blessed! Thank you.

I love your music and i think your amazing. But oddly you will talk a man out of killing himself but you cant keep your hands off of drugs to show your fans that you have changed and want to be the bigger person and live the normal life.
