T.I. Denied Bond, Will Remain Behind Bars for Now

T.I. was denied bond during his appearance in federal court this afternoon. The rapper was arrested on Saturday afternoon on federal weapons charges. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Tip appeared before U.S. Magistrate Alan Baverman with his hands and legs shackled, and answered “Yes, sir,” and “Yes, your honor,” when asked if he understood his charges. He reportedly made eye contact with family members who were present in the standing room only courtroom. Prosecutors have asked the judge to hold Tip without bail until his trial, which could take several months to get under way. Baverman scheduled a hearing for Friday to determine whether there was probable cause for the rapper’s arrest and whether or not he will qualify for bond.

      I don’t know about ya’ll mu’fuckas…but I ain’t prayin’ for SHIT! I’m tired of niggaz doin’ DUMB shit and then us having to support them cuz they’re part of “hip hop.” I’ve reached my limit. These niggaz are stars…millionaires…WTF are you doin’ buying loads of illegal machine guns…and SILENCERS!?! Same thing with P…well, I don’t know if he’s a millionaire like that…but you have 2 gun charges, a heater in your glove box or whatever…and you gonna pull an illegal U-turn?! Now you got your 3rd strike and doin’ 3 years. And you know what…good for you! Cuz mu’fuckas don’t learn they’re goddamn lesson. Fuck that…if you in the street, and you gotta do what you gotta do to survive, and you become entangled in that dark lifestyle just cuz you were trying to put food on the table, and you get knocked cuz of THAT, then that’s another story. THEN I’ll pray for you. THEN I’ll say “keep your head up”…and hopefully you can come out and make a better life for yourself. But THESE niggaz?! Stars?! Millionaires?! Fuck outta here!!! I’ll see you in 30 years, TIP.

        I KINDA FEEL U ON THAT 1 CUZZ..TOUGH LUV VIA COMMENT BUT WHEN U GET BLESSED LIKE THAT WHY FUCK IT UP…..

    • renae1630

      I have been a fan of TI since before half of these people knew who he was. When you are a true fan you support them no matter what. I keep up with his story hourly and I hope he comes out on top in this. We all make mistakes, some more than others but I think as long as he stays strong he’ll be alright. He does need to learn than as a convicted felon, things like this can only hurt him. As for his so called “bodyguard”", “Quit the dam snitchn”.. Other than that I really get tired of seeing the comments on different sites about white people and how they look at the rap world because not all of them are alike. Im a 27 year old female and Im about as white as you get. Igrew up listning to country music but ventured in my own direction at a later age. To me hip hop has a bond that no other culture will ever have. It hurts me alot that TI is going through all this and I hope with all my heart he doesnt go back to prison.

  • rodney

    Why the fuck TIP buying guns. You a millionare you hire people to carry guns for you. You think jay-z and 50 buying machine guns. Hell Nah they got niggas on the payroll to carry the guns. You got too much to lose bro. No getting of these Fed charges.

    • Domjel

      Exactly. I thought that was covered in “Now I made it 101″! Plus, his crew must be suspect if he’s using hired help, 6 months no-less, to do grimy work. Your connection should have a connection.

  • dark vanilla

    iz it jus me, or does someone smell a rat. so far Game, Ja Rule, Lil Wayne and now T.I. have been arrested for gun charges. Mus be those faggots who wanna ban hip hop.

    • iLL

      Yea Dark, it is a rat..Ive been listening to Cnn news update on my ipod, and they said that he was arrested on a tip from his bodyguard who conspired with the ATF to have him arrested. Basically he was ratted out on by his own bodyguard…hmmm..yall cats better stop dealing with the fake potnah’s in your crew. Role solo, ya undastand me.

  • SUCKS 2 B U

    They gave Prodigy 3.5 years for one .22 he was holding, so what you think T.I. facing sitting on a stash of 25 w/ silencers?

    No matter what these Rap Niggas yealling, SNITCHING IS AT AN ALL TIME HIGH!

  • MY ADVISE

    Ayo! Tip, You a skinny Nigga. My advice is find a big tatooed Oz looking dude and suck him off right away, let him know you know what time it is. Let him get in that skinny ass real good on the first night, and I bet you’ll be cool until you can cop your deal. Also, Young Dro may not have told you this, but prison isn’t like that “make-believe land” of the studio you rap about – You gonna have to taste some convict dick to get out of this one my dude!

    Keep ya head up homie! Cause karma is a Bitch!

  • Mr 3 STack

    T.I. will come out clean……..they have to prove that the bodygaurd was going to give him the guns and he has enough money to fight anything this bitttcccchhhheesssss throw at him. So keep yo head up homie!!!!!!!! And fuck these haters!!!!!!!!

  • greg

    WHY HE WAS SO STRAPP WAS HE GOING TO WAR OR WAS SOMEBODY ON HIS NECK

  • harDCore

    He’ll get off, this was just a very preliminary thing. He got arrested on Saturday and the judge just got the case, he’ll review it and on Friday TI will be out on bail. If the case goes to trial he’ll probably get off light. Atlantic is probably watching over their product, so I bet he’s getting some very expensive attorneys.

  • la voice

    Everybody this is my first time writting and what I have to say is quick TI is a two time jail loser 1 more and it’s third strike and that means it could be from 50 years to life when you go to jail for three serious cases you could be in jail for life it’s called third strike and this is a federal case so like bossgame saids let’s pray for him cuz im a fan and losing him right now how hip hop is in this moment it will be a real tragic loss

  • DC

    Anyone remember the Punked episode when they stop TI from boarding his plane saying that they found a gun or bullets in his bag? I believe he said something like, “I don’t own any firearms, sir.” ahahahhh damn, Aston Kutcher is Nostradamus.

  • http://www.beefradio.com Joe Muggz

    Damn… My dude! When I first heard, I instantly got madd… Then when I tried to look for any justifications, finding none, I got even madder! FU*K! Didn’t he have like 7 felonies to begin with? This is a perfect example… money only changes the situation, never the mindstate. As King of the South, it brings alot of “role model” baggage. (Positive and negitive). I mean even the street niggaz look up to him. Guns, chains, hoes, kush, whips, cribs, etc is all a standard now. Its alot of pressure “livin how the song go”…. Vick, OJ, Marion Jones, and now this…. As a black man.. I would like to say Thanks for representing for me….

  • c

    Man, you do reap what you sow. This man raps about the very thing that is currently got him at the mercy of the ATF, you know the alphabet boys. Hey, he did this to himself. These guys become so cocky and think they are above the law, and I will admit at times they are above the law. Let’s admit whatever the outcome of this case be, it will now amount to the consequence an average street dude would get.

    Let’s be real this man raps about guns, sex, drugs and other negative images that are literally tearing down the black community but you all keep talking about feeling sorry for this man. I know they say that there bringing attention to what is going on but they know what is going on. Why they still selling these images? These guys have sold there soul to the devil. But, let’s not forget these racist record label owners. Bottom line, this guy knew that he was a convicted felon.

  • GEM

    Anybody can be touched, FEDS ala watch you, hell all of us. Watch the closest people to you b/c they could be the ones to get you indicted. Most of the time when NI@@as catch a case their closest homie who sets them up.

    I hate that they made him the forefront of the discussion panel on BET then he gets popped for weapons possession. Sometimes it doesn’t pay to get involved w/politics that are bigger than you. TIP was set up, set up by a black man at that. ONCE an informant is planted, it’s only a matter of time before the crew or the head of the crew goes down.

    BUT, TIP was a felon so the ATF new this one would be easy. If they caught him w/anything else, he’s be out on bond as we speak. So should you feel bad for him, NO! Y b/c he knew the stipulations behind being caught w/a fire arm. But for his kids that he has to provide for, YES!

    Its not HIP HOP vs AMERICA, nooooooo! Its HIP HOP vs. HIP HOP. All the snitches are w/in yo crew.

    WITHOUT INTEGRITY, LOYALTY IS NOTHING

  • http://Yahoo Fineframelady

    I think the whole situation is sad. The fact that he felt the need to buy guns w/silencers and that he didn’t use his money wisely to pay for the necessary security. I really hope he gets off of this but it really doesn’t look good especially since they won’t even let him post bond. It’s situations like these will let him know who’s “really” in his corner.
