T.I. Talks Man Down From Building Rooftop

It’s T.I. to the rescue. The rap superstar reportedly helped police this afternoon (October 13) in stopping a man from jumping off the roof of a building in midtown Atlanta.

According to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, a young African-American male went to the roof of 1201 Peachtree St.—better known as the 400 Colony Square Building, which houses radio station V-103—shortly before 4 p.m and threatened to jump.

Tip apparently heard about the incident on the radio on his way to a video shoot and called in to let them know he was on his way down to help. Once he arrived at the scene he met with law enforcement officers and, with their assistance, aided in bringing the man down safely.

“He came to the scene and offered to talk to him, we told the young man that, and he came down,” Officer James Polite told the AJC. “When the man came down, T.I. spoke to him for a few minutes. He was then taken to a hospital for treatment.

The entire incident was apparently captured on Ryan Cameron’s show on V-103.

    Look. I’m gonna post this all over this site. We got an election nov 2nd and the republicans is voting to eliminate the mutha fucking minimum wage! They also voting to end all public college scholarships cause they rich and greedy. Last but not least, they plan to make anybody caught with so much as a joint do federal time. Who you think they wanna fuck with these laws? Like your minimum wage paycheck too generous and your employer need a break?! Are you kidding me!

    You got less than 5 days to register to vote up DEMOCRATS and beat the bigots in the republican and tea party back. You can register to vote at the DMV and you can also do a search on google for voter registration in yo state. We aint beat yet and Obama can’t do shit if we don’t vote up his allies on nov 2. DEMOCRATS NOW! Fuck the bigots in the tea party and slimy ass republicans.

    He set that shit up. He goes to court tomorrow morning, c’mon son. What are the odds that it turned out to be a TI fan? What if it was a Jonas bros fan? SPLAAAAT! What if Waka woulda showed up? SPLAAAAT!

    **I could careless what he has done previously–this is an amazing deed.

    I cant imagine Jay-Z/ Beyonce, Diddy, 50, etc doing something like this–they could give a sh*t if some “idiot” chooses to kill themselves, because they’re good. For an A-List celeb to do something of this nature deserves honorable mention.

    I’ve been a T.I. critic on different issues, but if you cant credit someone for saving a life—-you’re mind is made up no matter what they do.

    It is indeed my belief that mesothelioma is most fatal cancer. It’s got unusual attributes. The more I actually look at it the greater I am confident it does not behave like a real solid tissue cancer. In the event mesothelioma can be a rogue viral infection, hence there is the chance for developing a vaccine and also offering vaccination to asbestos open people who are really at high risk with developing foreseeable future asbestos related malignancies. Thanks for giving your ideas for this important ailment.
