T.I. to Sit Down With Larry King

The King is back and he’s apparently ready to talk about what his eight months in jail were like. In his first major interview since 2009, T.I. will speak exclusively with Larry King on his show Larry King Live this Thursday (May 13).

T.I. began serving time last May after being sentenced for federal gun charges. As previously reported, the Grand Hustle leader was released to a halfway house last December. Since then he was allowed to serve out the remainder of his sentence on house arrest and on March 26 was declared a free man.

CNN.com is asking viewers to participate in the broadcast by submitting any questions they may have for Tip to their website.

Larry King Live is the first worldwide phone-in television talk show and is renowned for it’s exclusive interviews with celebrities and politicians. Over the years, the veteran journalist has interviewed such high profile guests as Bill Clinton, John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Michael Jordon, Madonna, Al Pacino, Ronald Reagan, Frank Sinatra, Oprah Winfrey and Malcolm X.

The show will air at 9 p.m. EST, on CNN. —Brooklyne Gipson

    Yo Im not a hater or nothing as much as Im a dissapointed fan. TI based his career of selling “trap Music” and being the king of the gutta ass south, but in the past year this is what Ive seen from TIP Harris
    1. Ti is NOT From Bankhead- SHout to SHAWTY LO
    2. Ti does a crime stoppers ad with anonymous tips
    3. TI road to redemption, A show where he goes around telling kids the exact opposite of his music.
    4.Ti testifies in court
    5. Ti gets a 8month sentence for guns when he was facing 20.
    6. Ti gets dissed by 50 cent and ignores it.
    7. Ti turns his back on the “WESTSIDE GRANDHUSTLE MUSCLE ALAMEGA”

    This is sad…

    DO research on real gangstas. Read up on the lastest shrief that was a major drug distrubtor. Its fake gangsta who join a gang to hang cause their daddy wasn’t around, they do the light work for someone at the top who gives their name up to stay on the streets.

    Real gangstas take plea deals, they do things to shorten their sentences. Its just TV but refrence the wire. Look at how avon barksdale gave up his peeps. Set up a co and told on the co to reduce his sentence. Or marlo how he would make people take charges.

    People get snitchin mixed up.

    Look at another 48 which exposes the truth of what goes down when people in that box.

    You ain’t a snitch till you facin them years. Whats bad is people who snitch and then don’t make the right deal.

  • stuckfresh

    T.I.P stands for tip the police! call 1800-tip-cops if u live in atlanta! lol!

  • crashxdjp

    Some moron said gangsters take plea deals…well ya unless that plea deal means you SNITCH.

    TI snitched/cooperated with law enforcement. You idiots who defend TI saying that we would see his public record a snitching document. You really think the government is dumb enough to do that? Why would they put a snitches documents on the internet and have every street dude looking for them.

    God you people are dumb. He was facing 20 years, got 8 months, an album and reality show before going into jail. Come on now. TI is soft and straight pussy.

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    you must not know the law. I mean the average person may do some time because they don’t know the law. You never plea guilty. Gangsta say don’t snitch so they can be protected while they snitch on their workers. Thas the ugly truth. This is just one case that made headlines because of his status but it happens all the time. its not about defending ti its just a reality check for people who want to live a life but don’t know how it really goes down.

    T.I. and Eminem are in a sublinimal battle…. The 1st attack come from T.I. in his new single “I’m Back”… Eminem’s reponse to T.I is his new track “Not Afraid”…. Listen to them 2 songs and put your comments…

    • Diamondz

      shut the fuck up idiot ti is a bitch and eminem is a snitch enough said bitch

    People hating on T.I. saying that he isn’t hard and should be discredited need to reassess T.I. The man is now a grown ass man with grown ass problems. He’s left the drug game behind and he is taking his superstar status seriously. In fact I respect T.I. more now than the early days. Listen to his last album before he went to jail. That was a changed man behind the mic and it also his most poigant. King Muzik is gonna go hard all day.

    And I definetly agree about T.I. vs. Eminem battling for rap supremecy right now. Wayne’s incarsarated. Drake is too damn young. And Kanye & Jay are currently in the studio. This is a an interesting day for the rap game because the battle is between two grown ass men speaking real ass game.
