Will T.I. receive special protection?

I was listening to NPR or some shit the other day, and they were saying that moving the terrorists from Gitmo to prisons here in the US could be worse, because they could end up getting killed. Guys in prison may be held against their will for the rest of their lives, in some cases on some ol’ bullshit, but they’re still patriotic enough to shank an A-rab, if given the opportunity.

Which is kinda sweet, if you think about it. Though I can’t imagine it would do us any favors, as far as our standing in the Arab community. It’s bad enough there was apparently a shedload of rape going on over in Abu Ghraib. How in the fuck are gonna convince them that their cousins got stabbed in the yard because the millions of people rotting in our prisons are lovers of freedom?

They aren’t exactly known for their appreciation of nuance.

I remember watching Oz, back when I was in high school, and thinking it wasn’t very realistic, because people would turn up dead week in and week out. And how in the fuck could so many people get killed in prison and we hardly even hear about it? But apparently people in prison really do get killed all the time like that – it’s one of the reasons why they’re not sure what they’re gonna do with the terrorists.

Which begs the question: should we be worried about T.I.? He turned himself in the other day, and there’s all kinds of rumors about him being a snitch. There was an hilarious video on Vlad TV the other day with Star talking about how T.I. fucks with the police. And there was the thing a couple of weeks ago, with Alfamega being outed as a snitch, and somehow having both of his legs broken by the police. Then it was rumored that T.I. might only be doing a few weeks in the joint, though that may have been b.s.

Maybe 5-0 floated the idea of T.I. only doing a few weeks, to see if anyone would call shenanigans, and then they were like, “Nah, we’re gonna have to leave him in for at least six months.” I notice they’ve got him in a prison in Arkansas, of all places, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some shenanigans were involved with that. While I doubt Arkansas has any white collar prisons, or any white collar residents, for that matter, other than the Walton family, which is officially above the law, I’m wondering how come they couldn’t have sent him to a prison in his native Georgia. I’m pretty sure Georgia does have a prison. Wasn’t James Brown discovered in a prison in Georgia?

They probably figured not as many people in Arkansas would know T.I. Or if they do know him, because I’m sure his music is big in Arkansas, they might not be as familiar with the details of his case. I’ve never been sure whether or not guys in prison can access the Internet. I know there’s that dating site where fat white women can sign up for conjugal visits. It’s what comes up when I google some of my male relatives in my age group. But they might not be able to access blogs. I know Prodigy has to write his shit down and have someone post it for him.

Let’s say word does get out in the Arkansas prison. Like, maybe I go down to Georgia to score with a broad I met on the Internets, and I end up having to kill somebody, and so I’m sent to the same prison in Arkansas, and I start whispering in some guys’ ears. No fishsticks. Is it true that people in prison don’t take kindly to people who fuck with the police? We know inmates will kill sex offenders, and apparently they might fuck up a terrorist, but what about T.I.?

If I had to put money on it, I’d say nothing bad’s gonna happen to T.I. in prison, if only because he’s famous. If he left the joint in 17 shoe boxes (or in his case, like 12), too many people would notice. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s being held in a special area, with a buncha gay guys, or if they’ve got a guy on the inside, whose job is to take care of him. Either way, six months from now, he’ll be back out on the street, hardly any worse for the wear. Worse case scenario, there might be a rumor that he got raped on four different occasions, like 2Pac. I might even start one.

  • Pierzy

    I think the “sisters” are going to get a hold of him like in The Shawshank Redemption.

    • geico lizard

      He has been locked up before in georgia and they treated him like a king in there. This time he is in arkansas and the snitch rumor wont go away so he wont be dissing lil flip and making videos this time. He just wants to get out alive. Minimum security in arkansas must be the same as death row in other states the way his artists are praying for him on mixtapes.

      Why dont they do dental records in arkansas? Because no one there has more than 4 teeth…ba-zing

      • DownSouth

        Say dawg, you need to quit hating on Arkansas. Because as far as the rap game goes WE UP NEXT!

        DOWN SOUTH!!!

    Someone might want to test him, but most likely heads will probably show him love.

    I’m pretty much gonna leave this topic alone after this. Let that man live until he comes home.

        Grand$ go hit the C-Murder thread. Something is waiting for you there…

  • OG Matt Herbz

    He’ll burrow his way through a hole in the wall hidden by a poster of MLK Jr.

  • og bobby j

    TI is going to be seperated from the GP…he is famous and rich….he will not even have a cell mate.

    His “High profile” ass is going to come out and make a record about how gangsta he is…when in reality, he is reading books and doing underwear laundry for the next 6 months….

    Side bar : maybe that prison food can get him out of toddler clothes…

  • hate

    first of all, he got busted on FEDERAL gun charges rite? so he’s doin time in a FEDERAL PEN then instead of a STATE. From what I understand, while it’s by no means easy, FED time is much more isolated and controled than STATE.

    now for a normal person, that would be a determining factor in your life longevity.
    But t.i.’s not normal. he’s famous. which means he’s goin to PC.

    PROTECTIVE CUSTODY IN A FEDERAL PEN.

    he’ll be more comfortable than half the mothafuckers i know livin on the outside!!!

    If he does get killed, it won’t be by a prisoner. it’ll be by the real T.I.’s, and they don’t even have time for his lil’ ass. they got a world to destroy

    • valdez

      that’s reall talk right there. ‘specially about the T.I.’s

  • giantstepp

    TIP will be fine, like Pac. There will be rumors etc., like with Pac, but he will get shown much more love than hate, like with Pac. Its always one or two dudes with something to prove, but he can handle the shit, like with Pac. He’ll come out and have continued success, like with Pac. Ayo Bol, Keep Pac’s name out yo mouth fool!

  • Epinz

    He’ll b str8, he’s in a soft prison, and yes there is such a thing. If he were in a regular prison, nggz would mof def try him cuz snichin or even the thought of it is a no-no. There are also male groupies, even in prison, so it works both ways. But he’s def in gp, he aint got nuthn to worry about where he’s at, its like a big pc(protective custody) camp.

  • Penelope Rodriguez

    Chris Keller was a sexy man. Even though he was a sociopath. I say that ’cause you mentioned Oz.

    Anyway, T.I.? I will forget about dude like I did Remy Ma. I think he’ll be alright though.

  • sealsaa

    “TIP will be fine, like Pac”

    Being a rapist, i’m surprised Tupac didn’t get tampered with in prison. You how those inmate’s code of ethics goes. You can stab a woman 42 times, but god help you if you did it with your dick.

    • DV8

      Pac didnt rape that girl. The other dudes in the suite did. Thats why he got shot up at the Quad they wanted to shut him up.

  • sealsaa

    ^ And yet, he served time for it. Hmmm….

    • http://www.byroncrawford.com/ Bol

      Pac just held her down while those other guys raped her. That’s why he got relatively easy.

    • DV8

      of course….he was the famous nigga that was getting to much power in the streets.

      Remember all the gang leaders (the guys featured on American Gangster and Gangland, not the old head in your hood) wanted to link with Pac and create a hood army. Due to the fact that Pac had family ties to the Black Panther Party they (the feds) wanted to do whatever they could to make sure it didnt happen. So it isnt far fetched that they would create a bogus rape charge to lock him away for a minute.

      Haitian Jack and the others worked a deal with the feds to get off free.

      Remember that line in Against All Odds: lace this track and spit these facts about a snitch named Haitian Jack/ knew he was workin with the feds…..

    “Let’s say word does get out in the Arkansas prison. Like, maybe I go down to Georgia to score with a broad I met on the Internets,”

    Hilarious, I been keeping up with that and the shorty does sound sincere, although I would limit the confines of the visit to the suburban/airport area, but if you got an itchy i.e. pistol and are gully like that- “Surprise,surprise, soopryze”(no Gomer Pyle), go head on and live it up, but stay on your square and by all means beat the brakes of the poon, I dont want to hear no sad sack stories from chick later.

    “Is it true that people in prison don’t take kindly to people who fuck with the police?”

    Emphatically Yes! Dont do it.

  • Dr Flav

    Oh yeah the Walmart, Waltons do run Ark, but Clinton’s library down in Little Rock is a beast. Nice reference.

  • iLL

    With money (im sure) there is a whole other world we dont see or get wind of. Im sure he has people that has people that know people in that particular prison thats on some paid for hire, look out for me type shit. If not like previous commenters have said, its PC Fed time; which is not hardcore but he WILL be workin, away from general population. In the end, hell…who knows?

  • Dr Flav

    I though it was already reported that he would be in general population?

    But then, really I try not to invest too much of myself into knowing about that man and the time that HE has to do.

  • Enlightened

    Bullshit post. D-

  • cRaBmEaT

    T.I. is in a minimum security prison in Tennesee. Nothing is gonna happen to that lil’ nigga. He is not going to a “pen”.

    Everyone in that prison has less than 5 years and they really just want to go home.

    Just go to BOP.com and type his name in. His release date is March 2010.

  • JAY STONE

    Worse case scenario, there might be a rumor that he got raped on four different occasions, like 2Pac. I

    More likely, they wanted to prevent him from putting out anymore shitty rap albums, but he just wouldn’t take a hint with the rape charge, so they had him killed.

    • DetroitDraper

      Sealsaa who are you? Beergangstas alter ego or somethin? You stay postin some bs.

  • sealsaa

    ^And as for the Black Panther party of the 90′s, and Tupac’s “ties to them, those nigga’s couldn’t organize a recycling bin, let alone a “street army”. You Pac stans are just getting ridiculous now.

    • DV8

      ummmm you do know his mom was a Black Panther and so was the man he refers to as his father right?

      Im just repeating the things said in all the Pac documentrys

      • sealsaa

        “ummmm you do know his mom was a Black Panther and so was the man he refers to as his father right?”

        Yeah, back in the 60′s and 70′s. Now they’re about as relevant as the USSR.

        “Im just repeating the things said in all the Pac documentrys”

        Which are FILLED with hyperbole. Hell, for a bag of groceries, those people would’ve attested to all kinds of shit. Look, the guy was a RAPPER, and a mediocre one at that, not this modern day civil rights leader that his STANS proclaim him to be.

  • HNIC

    In an attempt to avoid all of the speculation & hearsay, why not just go directly to the source (no pun intended).

    Get at him:

    Clifford Harris

    Register Number: 59458-019

    FCI Forrest City Low

    Federal Correctional Institution

    P.O. Box 9000

    You’re welcome!

    Actually, the feds have little minimum security camps all over the U.S. I would imagine he went to a low level small camp, probably cleaning up some govt. reserve land. All short timers, low risk. He’ll be fine.
