Federal Agents Hold Press Conference to Show Off T.I.’s Alleged Gun Collection

At a press conference in Atlanta yesterday (Oct. 15), Federal prosecutors displayed the firearms siezed from T.I.’s car and house, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The last place a machine gun or silencer should be in the hands of a convicted felon, who’s not legally allowed to posess any type of firearm,” said David Nahmias, a government prosecutor.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a video (view here) and a photo gallery (view here) of the press conference, as well as a detailed breakdown (click here) of the guns Tip was allegedly attempting to buy.

And the sad thing is that sooooo many niggas dont see whats happening, and they out there killing brothas. Black on Black cant go on when there is Alphabets on Black.

    • Fire

      Good points. If they really gave a damn they would have stopped it earlier, but T.I. still shouldn’t have beeen doing that shit unless he was trying to establish his own NRA chapter.

  • Moniker

    Hell when Prodigy goes to trial he should be like at least I’m not this bad. I only had a pistol

  • Dxl

    Sh*t this could’ve been any other rapper, Feds could arrest nearly all the rappers if they decide to be doing this kind of thing and for real, why does T.I need all that? If he’d plan to be shooting someone well he just got saved from himself cause he would’ve be spending at least 25 years in jail

    People need to learn from Suge, hire off duty cops as bodyguards, they can legally shoot anyone for you.

  • Al

    Fuck the police………….he will be out on bail…….u better stop anitching nigga,and u undercover that busted this shit u better leave america to another part of the world……………..good luck T.I.

    • will

      T.I. will remain in custody until friday. who gives a fuck whos snitching TI had machine guns that is not neccesarry and if your dumb enough to meet someone you dont know(who turned out to work for the ATF) to buy machine guns in a publix parking lot where cops hang out on an hourly basis then you should go to jail. TI you deserve this for thinking your above the law. you cant blame this one on TIP more like Clifford Harris JR.

    Ti deserves this – his last album was the worst rap of the year, I guess karma got to him for putting out such a super-wack album.

    Oh yeah, he ain’t gonna beat this case, with the evidence the feds got, there is a 0.000000001 chance TI is gonna beat this case. He’s gonna get at least 10 years for this one.

    TI should start applying that barbecue sauce on that ass, and bring out the VASELINE (he is going to need a lot of that vaseline hahahahah).

  • texasleen

    ^^^^^^^^^^^ it offical that was the most homo thing you could say

  • jr russo

    this smells like a setup. i said it on hiphopdx it the usual the feds get an informant to bring ti down. its always an informant that does the dirty work. it makes me wonder if the feds can do anything by them selves??? just pay an informant!!!!!

  • bizzle

    It’s rough on those streets especially when you got a young rich dude like ti…you can move to the burbs but the haters will still try to get at you period. Its better that he got caught with it than without. Bodyguards can’t be with you 24/7

    ***N*GGAS AREN’T PEOPLE, ITS A MENTALITY!***

    Why would anyone need a silencer??
    Does that help “protect” anyone when an intruder enters the home??
    No.
    TI brags all the time about being “the most important figure in the south” as well as “The King” and this is is how he carries that responsibility? Dont get me wrong, I dont want to see any more black men incarcerated UNLESS its for rape or crimes against children. . .BUT THE N*GGAS HAVE GOT TO GO!!!
    N*ggas now dominate the once proud black culture, and supply the media with ammunition to make our people seem monolithic. I never thought much of TI as an “artist” to be honest, so lets denounce the “n*ggaism” that chases us by the actions of the ignorant few!

    …and HELL NO I dont support a “FREE TI!” movement. I support real causes for people who are actually locked up for fighting for the cause of us ALL! Black people will eventually rise once we break the plauge of ignorance unleashed upon us.

    I respect you all. -1

    • nappy_pappy

      um…why would u think silencers were used as a weapon?? silencers are used for JUST THAT…to silence the shots..cmon u seem very intelligent u should know that

      • megagavelli212

        i believe the point that mr1836 was trying to make was that the only reason that someone would need a slilncer would be for an assasination type of situation–NOT for self defense—so why would ti need a silencer if he was just trying to defend himself from “haters” or whatever? exactly…he brought this one one himself…

  • http://www.myspace.com/mizredd1 LBoogie

    So then there shouldn’t be no arguments over whose guns they are, if they were found in his house they should have his fingerprints somehwere….right… just dust em off, get the prints and then convict!!! I know the feds are some grimey ass nuccas, they set 30 niggaz up in my town all on a conspiracy, didn’t find nothing but got all of em to admit to shit THEY(police) SAID was going on cuz they were a gang and gangs do these things according to rap lyrics and movies!

  • http://www.xxlmag.com EReal

    Thats just a bit over the top. I guess he has a napoleon complex or somethin. A fuckin double circular drum magazine on a fuckin carbide? What the fuck you need that for? You got a team of assasins kill bill style? WTF!?

    Rappers, quit being stupid. *SMH* Shoulda listened to Chamill yall. Drama, Prodigy, Wayne, T.I., Its starting to look like the Evening News video out this bitch. Protect yo fuckin neck.

    And for all you “Rather get caught with it than with out it” this is the END for dude, he gets 10 years and its a WRAP for him, so is the few dollars you get stuck for really worth your life and your carrer? Yall some 13 year old E-Thuggin morons.

    1 hunned.

  • T.I.

    hopefully he doesnt get ten years

  • blkpwr

    Dude, how old are you (5yearslockeddown)? Lets take you to school for a sec….the reason they let their target to continually incriminate themselves is so they can build a stronger case to keep them off the streets longer when he gets locked up. Your saying that if the “higher-ups” really cared they’d knip it in the bud A.S.A.P. But then you don’t have a strong case and the violator is back on the streets in no time to continue the behavior they’re trying to get off the streets. You cant always blame the crack dealer for a crack heads habit. A crack head will always find a way to get his fix but if the dealer has no custies he cant sell crack!! It’s foul how the body guard and the feds set T.I. up, but if T.I. wasn’t a convict trying to illegally buy guns nothing would have happened to him. T.I. put the pipe in his own mouth… nobody forced him, c’mon!!

  • T.I.

    hopefully he doesnt get ten years hes my favorite rapper

    he suck anyways..glad we dont have to hear his lame ass musik again…

  • Chuck Basel

    “Simple minded, Dr.Suess, Mother Goose, Cat in the Hat ass rapper, quit running up on niggas with all that whack shit”, you don’t know? I could see it if the brother was caught on his way to Jena,to help the Black Panther Party to try and handle some business, but he ain’t gonna do nuthing but shoot up a buncha black people, other thugs, he damn sure wasn’t about shooting up no ATF folk.

    You should have listened to more X-Clan and P.E. instead of other lil ignorant ass rappers, like Ice Cube “I blessed your neighborhood with crack”. And just think of all the monkey see-monkey do young cats, that are thinking, “We need to get strapped like T.I.” and do what? and shoot who? they can’t build prisons fast enuff to hold these cats who have been tricked into a false lifestyle, hustler/gangster.. black on black crime …”all the money I stacked was the money for bail”

    “Nigga’s, get your hands off your crack (guns) and come to terms with yourself, if you don’t get any bigger, pink caddie driving black boot stomping, yeeeees, I’m that kind off nigga……

    • King Joffy Joe

      Chuck, I was all for your statement when you started out by speaking on some real shit (such as the Jena 6 Rally and the Black Panther Party), but when you referred to Ice Cube, one of the founding fathers of Gangster Rap, as a “Lil’ ignorant ass rapper”, then you have just put the entire credibility of your comment in serious jeopardy. Don’t mean to sound rude, but YOU sir, have just fucked up.

      • Chuck Basel

        King Joffy Joe…

        “NWA, with its booming beats and harsh lyrics, put LA and the west on the map and got Cali some acceptance. This was a big incentive for folks out here to overlook their own morals and common sense and get behind those gangsta groups that knocked the doors down. Personally, despite doing some of NWA’s first interviews, I felt uncomfortable calling what they did revolutionary because I recall both Cube and Eazy telling me they were cursing up a storm as a way to initially be funny and that they enjoyed seeing the shocked look on people’s faces. They weren’t doing it because they really felt that way (as many like to romanticize). Look at some of the old articles on them and you’ll see them admitting to that.” – Ethan Brown.

        I remember years ago reading Rolling Stone magazine, interviewing Sir Mix Alot, they told him “Ice Cube represents young black america” Mix said “if that’s the case,we got alot of ignorant motherfuckers running around” ..20 years later.. c’mon on now, like Chuck D says “These Crimminal Acts,ain’t got nothing to do with Rap” and “You Can tell Russell that I knocked the Hustle, two-million locked down under Federal Muscle” .

        Don’t Believe the Hype

        • King Joffy Joe

          Hmmm. Never looked at it from that point of view. Touche, Chuck.

        • Chuck Basel

          Don’t get me wrong King, I got love for Cube, but I gotta call it like i see it!

    How in the world are these people so fukking stupid, honestly. Thin about that for a minute. The money he spent (or was trying to spend) on guns and ammo could have hired his ass a professional bodyguard with LEGAL PERMITS to carry a weapon and use it when sumthin pops the fukk off.
    I am the biggest hip-hop fan in the world and love reading about the culture and the artists in it but this is absurd, the fuck you gonna do with a closet full of machine guns you fukkin hump? Oh I see, when someone breaks in to rob your skinny ass and rape your wife, you just hop out the bed head to your walk in finger print scanner safe and grap a fukkin M-16 and a Mac w/ a silencer?
    Give me a huge break, this is a disgrace to hip-hop. you make millions you stupid piece of shit you can stop buying guns now or else move somewhere where you do not need all those guns and stop trying to act hard!
    “They catch me with it im doin my lil bid”
    Bullshit, this moron is gonna squander his millions on lawyers to do whatever he can to stay out of jail.

  • zaccai

    I took the T.I. news personally. In case you haven’t heard the talented artist Tip Harris was busted by the ATF, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms. The rapper and emerging actor was found in possession of several firearms, some of which were machine guns. This is very bad for Mr. Harris who, as a convicted felon, can not possess any firearms. Why does this news trouble me? Because another talented brother who found a way out of the ghetto has stumbled in another of the devil’s traps. So many are saying, “T.I. was stupid, he should have seen it coming”. I guess Michael Vick should have seen it coming and Mike Tyson (the 1st time). I mean T.I was on the rise and he had already served time — why would he fall prey to the Hip Hop police. It’s common knowledge that there’s a concerted effort to monitor, arrest and incarcerate hip hop heroes in order to minimize their influence on black youth. Even though hip hop is mostly bought by young white teens, the architects of the music and culture are reflections of us (African folk) and represent dreams that so many have of a better life.

    Maybe T.I.P took his role in American Gangster too seriously. Maybe he should have relied on his bodyguards to pack the heat, rather than stay stuck in his trap mentality. (“It’s called trap music,” T.I. explains. “So you know it’s gonna be dealing with all aspects of the trap. And if you don’t know what the trap is, that’s basically where drugs are sold.”) http://www.rapindustry.com/T_I.htm

    “Big Shit poppin and little shit stoppin” (one of T.I’s recent hits) was probably the song the ATF agents got pumped to before bustin’ in T.I.’s door. Rhymin about guns and killin’ is about to be way passe. In case rappers didn’t know, the feds are watching even more closely than the streets and the streets may hate on you but they can’t make you sit in cold concrete for double digit years.

    Hip Hop is the only authentic messenger to black youth. Rap artists bring a clarity and truth that no other Africans in the public eye have brought since Malcolm X and Martin King were alive. This is why the griots are being targeted, especially at a time when they are becoming more conscious and politically charged. Remember Mos Def’s call for action on the Jena 6? The day after T.I.’s arrest The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan addressed a meeting of Hip Hop’s elite. It’s seems like more than a coincidence that the “King of the South” was sitting behind bars and not at the table to discuss where the message of the streets is headed.

    Recently T.I. was featured on BET discussing the state of Hip Hop in America. His voice was firm and clear, his points well stated. Such articulate spokesmen who have the ear of the nation’s lost black youth are a threat to a system that profits from each child who matures into a criminal stuck in the prison’s revolving doors. T.I. was destined for greatness, somewhere along the way he forgot to leave the street behind and embrace his new life of fame, fortune and opportunity. Instead he foolishly trusted a new associate who turned out to be an informant. He foolishly bought into the idea that gun ownership and gun-play are acceptable in the hood. The guns aren’t meant to change the system. Racist whites with nooses aren’t attacked by blacks with guns. Guns in our community become extensions of self hate playing out centuries of suppressed rage in random sprays, which leave the pain of death and the trauma of fratricide in its wake. T.I. should have been smarter, but in the end he’s just another nigga lost in a post slavery world trying to find a way to beat a system designed to deny him life.

    So many of these artists are trapped in their own stories of gunplay and murderous lyrics. Check T-pain and Twista rap/singing “I’m a killer, a mass murderer” in the song “Creep Fast”. Is this anything to proclaim on a song? http://www.metrolyrics.com/creep-fast-lyrics-twista.html

    When these lyrics are memorized and recited by fans what affect do artists think they’ll have? The mind is a hard drive that records every experience, this type of content only serves to create more tension, frustration and homicidal thoughts. Sadly, even pioneers of the art like KRS are lost in the gangsta mentality. In a recent http://www.AllHipHop.com editorial KRS, the Teacher, explained his valuing 50 cents new CD over Kanye West’s, by saying that 50 had the street boom-bap and rhymes while Kanye seemed to be for the ladies. One man’s opinion is just that, but KRS ends his missive with, “Like most people I too seek the “Good Life”, but let’s just keep it really real; “NIGGA MY GUN GO OFF!”" The times we are living in demand that we transcend such foolishness. When is the last time the Blastmaster shot someone? And if he has, why speak on it in public? Nigga, you’re gun going off is not only killing others who are usually a reflection of the killers own self-hatred, but also causing families, wives, children, the entire community and ultimately the nation to suffer due to the lack of men available to truly be MEN. Now, women too are following this gangsta death image and forming a parade to the prisons and graves.

    Do you see the US military machine bragging about how many millions they have maimed and killed in the name of American corporate and cultural expansionism (globalism/imperialism)? No, they downplay that shit and create ads and media spin that make them out to be the heroes riding in to save the day. Our street soldiers have a lot to learn. The real killers have legalized murder from the cigarette to the liquor bottle to the battlefield. We on the street would be of more service to our people, learning to heal rather than kill. We can’t beat the devil at his own game. Our gifts of language, arts and culture are the roots of civilization and spirituality. Foolishly, we mimic the master and continue as slaves locked in diamond studded chains, spinning on rims around the same ghettos with no new ideas just the same ol’ song. It’s time we face the music, change the tune and transform ourselves back into the global leaders we are destined to be.

    “You’re known by the company you keep and the company you keep from.” Bishop Lewis T. Tait Sr.

    The streets aren’t a dream just a rappers fairy tale,
    ask the real OG’s holding their heads in prison stink pens and jails,
    the recipe the industry cooks is for us all to fail,
    bring more blood and guns to the table,
    so the community can continue to hobble mentally and spiritually disabled,
    someone ought of told you long ago what you focus on continues to grow

    Black man Black man what you gone do with those guns?
    There’s too many babies who need you home
    too many mamas who need your love
    too many brothers in need of friends
    to play games with arms
    until life and freedom end

    You ain’t a revolutionary
    and change won’t come from a barrel
    just another nigga pistol whipped into a trap
    while you sittin’ reminiscin’
    remember that

  • FREE TIP

    Sources close to TI are saying that the charges brought against TI are completely false! A friend of TI had this to say about the rappers latest arrest charges on gun possession:

    “[The bodyguard] asked TI for an advance on his [pay] and TI gave it to him …. Whatever he spent money on – whether it be guns, drugs, or formula for his children – TI had nothing to do with it.” The insider continued, “The government was just looking to pin a case on TI – they’ve been trying for years. So they pushed [the bodyguard] into snitching on TI.”

    The Source also says that the guns in TI’s home did not belong to him the friend close to the rapper says :

    “TI has security that live with him and stay with him at all times. The guns that the [federal agents] found belonged to his security team … And by the way, [the members of his] security team are licensed to carry firearms.”

    i love dudes music, but i have lost all respect for him. this has got to be one of the stupidest fucking reasons to get locked up. if you know that you not supposed to have ANY guns because you are a convicted felon and your ass decides to go pick up 3 machine guns and a couple silencers to add to your already 8+ gun collection (or however many), then you reap what you sew. These cats really need to stop and think, “I made it out, why the fuck i keep bringing myself back in.” and niggas wonder why they got to worry about the fucking hip-hop police…so please stop showing support for this bullshit because you making it seem like its okay when in actuality its just plain stupid.

    Are you all kidding me?

    Free TI?? Fuck that, I have a brother in the federal pen who isnt a millionaire and didnt sell a bunch of fuckin rap albums, so nobody gives a fuck. Just like me, you probably got fam or folks in the pen, and nobodys busting a grape for them. Shit, at least this asshole’s got buccu bucks and can hire a real lawyer, and unlike the rest of us isnt stuck with a public pretender.
