T.I. Schools Youth On The Importance Of Education

T.I. continued his community service requirements earlier today, speaking to troubled teens about the importance of school.

According to the Associated Press, the Atlanta rap superstar appeared in Georgia Supreme Court on Friday morning (Feb. 20) to speak to a select group of high school students about their future and more importantly staying out of trouble. Addressing the young kids – half of which are already serving sentences as juveniles – Tip advised them to keep up with their studies.

The speech was part of the mandated 1000 hours of community service the rapper was sentenced to last year as part of his plea deal on felony gun charges. Tip will also be serving one year behind bars as part of the sentence next month. He is currently documenting his effort to warn other at-risk youth on his MTV series “T.I’s Road to Redemption.” The show, which premiered on Feb. 10, airs every Tuesday until his lockup date on March 27th. – Elan Mancini
