T.I. School Appearance Canceled By NYC Dept. of Education

With only a few weeks left to complete his sentence of 1,000 hours of community service, T.I. is going to have to find a last minute replacement for one of his speaking engagements.

New York 1 reports that an upcoming visit by the Atlanta rap giant to a local Brooklyn middle school has been canceled. Tip was supposed to visit Middle School of the Arts 578 in Crown Heights to lecture the students on the importance of education but the Department of Education nixed the event, stating it was too commercial.

The rapper’s appearance was set to be included in his MTV series T.I.’s Road to Redemption.

The “King of the South” is scheduled to start his one year prison sentence for federal gun charges at the end of the month. – Elan Mancini
