T.I. Expected to Plead Guilty, Facing 12 Months in Prison

In a shocking development, T.I. has reportedly struck a deal with prosecutors and is expected to plead guilty to his federal weapons charges later today. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported the deal this morning, citing a source “familiar with negotiations” between his legal team an the Feds. Tip, who was arrested during a sting operation last October, faced federal charges of possessing unregistered machine guns and silencers, unlawfully possessing machine guns and being a convicted felon in possession of firearms. The rapper was facing up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 charge on each count if convicted. Shortly after his arrest, Tip retained an all-star team of trial attorneys and appeared ready to vigorously fight the charges. While the terms of the plea agreement have not been confirmed, the Associated Press reports that he will face 12 months in prison and must complete 1500 hours of community service that will involve him travelling the country and speaking to youth groups. Any deal would have to be approved by U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr., who is overseeing the case. The agreement is expected to be announced later today.

      Nothing Against TI at all but this is an injustice. I have a family member doing time because he was a felon in possession of a firearm (not even his gun, and it was in another room) and he is serving 8 yrs in a federal prison. The poor get fucked and I’m sick of this fucking country. The USA is nothing like our forefathers intended it to be. Freedom? Liberties? Fuck this Country, I’m moving to Mexico.

      • Texas

        He paid alot of restitution first of all ( free money to the FEDS )? Attorneys really don’t have much say in a Federal court room unless you goto trial. Second of all the deal will come with strings. attached..I promise, always !! What they want him to do, is SNITCH on others who have anything to do with this case or any other case T.I knows about. Which more than likely he mentioned something and now are his attorney is making deals with the US district attorney in this case. The FEDS always close their deals this way. Basicly he will be their confidential informant until they are done with him. T.I will now be known as
        C.I (confidential informant)..aka (Snitch). The FEDS DON’T MAKE DEALS FOR NO ONE ..PERIOD !!They have a 98% conviction rate. You do big time or tell on others based on your crime. T.I should have gotten what is called mandatory minimum sentence…10 years…especially with his priors record. I know first hand, I did 6 yrs in Texas medium prison.

    I don`t know all the hype around this nigga.he sucks.King of the south my ass!!

    Co sign, if you are a convicted felon in possession of a firearm its a mandatory 5 years. Much less the fact that he had class 3 fully auto guns and silencers without legal permits. I guess money is the real king because he should have gotten way more time

    • A

      And this is a fed case. C’mon, I aint never heard of anyone getting it this easy, they usually don’t care who you are, unless you’re cooperating.

      • Nick

        Shit from 10 years down to 1 year he probably told them who sold him the guns.

  • Worley

    T.I. my boy God and that money gave you a second chance. Don’t fumble.

  • TOWN BUSINESS

    TIP will do less than a year under FED sentencing so expect him to be out..

    @JG420 you are right brotha that mandatory 5 years for an ex felon is also know as the “trigger lock law”

    I say this fuck the FEDs

  • smooove

    thats a bitch but could of been worse, wut u think that means for his album?

  • A

    Unbelievable! An ordinary citizen would have been serving the 10 years. That’s the problem with this government. Instead of making an example out of this idiotic individual especially celebrities they let him off. Let it become an epidemic then create a law penalizing a ton of violaters who might have thought twice after learning what TI had gone through.

  • dade county goon

    nigga got lucky as fuck. his skinny ass couldnt last 15 years w/o someone fuckin all 105 pounds of him to death! check this shit out mad funny. ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/248310/

  • Keith

  • RaisedOnBiggieNPac

  • major

  • http://myspace.com/QuiteNyceThroughMyeyes QN

    The gov’t will make an example out of a hiphop dude, it just wont be T.I. Not this year, instead its going to be RemyMan. He will get the book thrown at him for the attempted murder. 15 Years easy. I know Joe is laughing.

  • Wastelandwarrior

    That nigga is snitchin most FED time is mandatory, especially if you a felon AND on probation already. Aint no way you gon do less than 5 if you a felon getting caught with a gun. Ya’ll niggas who jock TI, know dat this nigga is cooperating with FEDS!

  • DIRTY

    SOUNDS LIKE SOME SNITCHIN GOING ON I HOPE NOT

  • OH KING

    A and Ne where gang you both bitch’s. You got hate in your blood. A real nigga never wants 2 see a brotha do time. Street nigga’s never yell out snitch without proof, because we take that shit serious. Stay up Tip lame nigga’s yelling out lame shit about whats gone happen when he get locked up that just shows me they soft, it dont matter if your 95 pounds if you a man you stand up like a man. You can’t beat everybody but you have to be willing to fight anybody.

    • jbird

      OH KING is a dumb fuck. it ain’t bout hate, it’s bout truth. ti did a crime now his bitch ass can do the time. he wanna be a thug and all that shit, but when it comes time to pay for all that thugery he wants to bitch out. he wanna be all billy badass but a bitch to the system. any real nigga woulda said “lock me up and throw away the key”. ti is a snitch if he gets 12 months. he’s a 7 time felon(listen to his lyrics before you speak), he’s on probation, and he got caught wit guns and silencers. that’s a probation violation definitely for anybody that’s been on probation would know that. you get time for that alone. then the charge would bring on more time. also, a felon in possession of a firearm is a mandatory minimum 5 years. so, it looks like ti was fucked for at least a good 10 – 20 years. but somehow he got off with a year like somebody with a theft charge. SNITCH! the proof is indirectly on the table. bubba gon fuck that lil bitch ass ti in the ass. i thought diddy said no bitch assness? i used to like this lil nigga tip, but now he’s just a memory to me. FUCK TI TIP whoever the fuck you call yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • A

      LET ME CHOP IT UP WITH U FOR A SEC HOMES!
      FIRST OF ALL, I WOULD NEVER WISH THE PEN OR DEATH ON NOBODY, YOU FEEL ME!?! I DIDN’T SET TI UP! I DIDNT TELL HIM TO GO COP DEM HAMMERS. HE DID THAT DUMB SHIT ON HIS OWN. IN FACT IF HE WAS MY PEEPS AND I KNEW HE WAS GONNA MAKE THAT MOVE I WOULD HAVE TOLD HIM FALL BACK! THAT’S STUPID. WHY WOULD U DO THAT? U TI? DUDE GOT A FAM, A GREAT CAREER, AND A REPUTATION. TOO MUCH 2 LOSE. HOMES IS 27 ALMOST 30. THE SHIT HE DO REFLECT ON ALL OF US AND HIP-HOP THE MOST. SO YES WE ALL PAY THE PRICE. STUPID NIGGAS DESERVE TO PAY THE PRICE.

      ON A SIDE NOTE THOUGH ANY THOROUGH BRED STREET CAT KNOW ABOUT THE SYSTEM. 1 YEAR FOR ALL THEM HAMMERS. OK, FUCK THE HAMMERS, 1 SILENCER ALONE WILL GET U SMOKED. THERE’S DEFINITELY SOME COOPERATING GOING ON. AND THAT MY FAM IS A MAJOR VIOLATION.

      TI IS A SNITCH! BOTTOM LINE!

  • RAW

    That is a dame shame that T.I. got less time than Michael Vick. Michael vick had no priors and this was his first conviction and he got 2 years for dog fighting. Then theres T.I. a convicted felon with priors and only get 12 months. It show that white people love animals more than they love the Black man. If T.I. was accused of killing dogs with those machine guns he would probaly be on death row as we speak……..lame ass PETA

  • http://www.xxlmag.com/?p=20578 jay

    idk bout all that shit.. ur tell me hes a felon with that many guns plus silencers and he only got 12 yrs.. idc how much bread u got there hadda been sum snitchin involved if not then a fbi informant or sumshit cuz he got off wit a slap on the wrist for that shit

  • http://yahoo.com Bottom of the Map

    jbird and ne where gang just because TIP took a plea deal don’t mean he’s a snitch. It means he plead guilty to the crime instead of going to court. In return for pleading guilty it makes the Feds look like them look good and it keeps there conviction rate at 99%. And anyways who the fuck did he snitch on his bodyguard….. Yall some dumb ass’s stop listening to music all the time and read a book!!!!!!!

  • What’z Crackin

    This is strait bullshit I had to do 6months of county time for nothing and this wack ass nigga get off with a year for having machine guns, silencers, and being on felony parole. Come the fuc on the Nigga told on somebody probably the dudes who got the guns. he figured “if someone dropping the dime on me” and thats how the hood get all fucked up. King of the south my ass

  • Big Sam

    Dats koo T.I.,Shawty Lo will take ova the ATL while you locked up. He a real Bankhead nigga.

  • K Killz

  • Messiah187

    “In a shocking development, T.I. has reportedly struck a deal with prosecutors”

    The deal got nothing to do wit money niggas thats the feds ain’t no money involve the only deal he got was to snitch.

    TI & TIP are The KING of all SNITCHES..

    KILL ALL RATS

  • corey

    The Feds don’t give plea bargains unless some sort of snitchin is being done look at michael vick a couple hundred million diid’t stop him from gettin 23 months its like this look nigga snitch on somebody take this plea of 12 months and save us some time especially T.I.s situation fuck a dead dog we talkin Machine Guns & Silencers in the possession of a Convicted Felon lets see if he gets moved to a facility because of safety conditions like the game

  • http://Tha Jstylez

    thats some good shit…we dont have to hear that wanna be tuff guy act anymore…like you can really beat some one up..you see what happen when you tried to challenge flip in his crew..you got stomped…lol…

  • http://xxl king jacob

    I don’t give a damn what nobody says…buddy cooperated in some copacity…how da hell you get a year for fully-automatic weapons, and a silencer?!! Johnny cochran dead homey, and he may have been da only cat I know THAT could have gotten a nigga off on such serious charges. He had to..I know too many people (even one’s with paper) that pleaded to this type of shit, and got steam-rolled anyways.. something does not seem right. One may argue “He has a fam, he can’t go down for 10 years, he should cooperate”..I say fugg dat. If he snitched on somebody, dat’s a damn shame…but if he didn’t, and still got only a year..fugg dat too..consequencses should be standard across da board for all..broke niggas, rap niggas, dope niggas…

      THAT’S REAL TALK!!

  • OH KING

    J bird I gaurantee if we were face 2 face u wouldn’t utter a peep. What da fuck u talkin about do da crime do the time. Bitch u sound like a lame. If you wuz locked up you would be on jenny craig. Since you a lame let me break it down fo ya. You wouldn’t be allowd 2 eat nigga’s would take yo shit in more ways than one. Simple ass nigga’s he plead out 2 lesser charges. Mandatory min law doesn’t apply. stupid BITCH

  • Crossfire

    My question is: who did he tell on? I mean, Tiny gets popped with all that ‘ex’, and she tells on tip, and now thats not in the charges anymore. In my humble opinion, tip gave up the exstacy people. They’re probably getting raided right now if they haven’t already fled to France or Columbia.

  • Dirty South Texas

    He paid alot of restitution first of all ( free money to the FEDS )? Attorneys really don’t have much say in a Federal court room unless you goto trial. Second of all the deal will come with strings. attached..I promise, always !! What they want him to do, is SNITCH on others who have anything to do with this case or any other case T.I knows about. Which more than likely he mentioned something and now are his attorney is making deals with the US district attorney in this case. The FEDS always close their deals this way.

T.I should have gotten what is called mandatory minimum sentence…10 years…especially with his priors record. I know first hand, I did 6 yrs in Texas medium prison. Bottom line, he should have gotten at least five years and not no 12months.
