T.I. Frustrated By Latest Jail Bid

Yesterday (November 18), T.I.’s most recent letter to fans from jail was posted on his site, trapmuzik.com. In his previous letter, he spoke on his next album being his best work yet. In the piece, which is his third letter since he’s been locked up, Tip spoke about the struggles he’s currently facing behind bars and how he is overcoming them.

Read the entire letter below.

This experience is truly a pain I have never felt before and that’s saying a lot for a nigga who’s been down locked up as many times as I have. I see this as a real ass whoopin’. The kind you don’t just go back outside to play afterwards. You take ya ass to bed and don’t come out of your room until it’s time to go to school. I don’ t know what effect this will have on my life moving forward but I’m certainly sick and mother f*cking tired of going to jail, juve, prison, the pen, correctional facilities or whatever else you want to call it. I’d have been better off doing a 5-10 year bid one time than going in time and time again for days, weeks and months for the last 15 years of my life. Even though it’s been a long road, I’m still standing, barely but nevertheless still standing. At one time I thought my motivation for continuing was for my fans, my partna Philant, my pops, my grandmama, even for the haters or the people I let down. But nah… I got to do this shit for me!!! I’ll be God damned if I’ve come all this way and made it through so much hell to let it go down like this! F*ck that! If an hour in the dark is worth a second in the sun then pass me my mother f*ckin’ shades cause I’m ready to cash my darkest hours in…ASAP!!! A lot of folks had fathers or father figures in the house to raise them into manhood. I’m not trying to make any excuses for my situation but my father was a hustler that lived in New York. My uncle was a local big time dope boy turned 10 year federal inmate. My mother and grandparents did the best they could but I found my manhood in the trap and in prison systems. But I found it. And nan one of mine will ever have to feel the cold tight grip of a handcuff or grace the presence of a jail cell if I can help it. Over my dead body! So if you can’t respect that you ain’t rocking with my movement then Fuck you dog! I know a bunch of mother f*ckers who are…..

- Love KING

    I’m glad Tip considers this a wake up call. He’s tired off getting locked up and his fans are tired of seeing him get locked up. Him getting locked up this time was arguably more of a let down then the last time he got locked up, at least it is for me…

  • Tre

    I can’t really get behind dude on this one. Like, you did a road to redemption show asking folks to change, only to turn around and do the same dumb shit and get locked up? How are those kids suppose to believe that? You can’t guide nobody to the right path if you’re going in the wrong direction ya damn self

  • Tre

  • Adam

    i have been a fan since trap musik ti is one of the hardest mcs in the game it takes a man to admit his mistakes but it takes a better man to go and make correction keep ya head up king the movement will continue

  • Tre

    @FREETIP, Screaming Free TIP wont get that nigga out no time soon

  • Levi

    I rock with TI’s music but get off the bullshit, I know plenty of people that didn’t grow up with a father figure, lived in the hood and never went to jail. Especially not as much fucking up as tip has done AFTER becoming rich and famous. We are missing the big picture here. Only a fiend don’t this dumb shit to go back to jail after knowing this feds got you in your radar. Another thing, you got a wife that’s right there doing that shit with you. What yall tell the kid’s? Daddy fucked up again. Get the fuck out of here, Until Tip gets his shit together I cant fuck with him, I am just one man and he wont miss it but he is gonna feel it this time around from the industry, the fans, and the white folks that run hollwood

    Hopefully this his last time doing time, but if he don’t surround himself with the right people, then its almost garunteed that he’ll be back.

    PAC, Jay , and BIG….went to jail for reasons that made sense. That equals street cred and record sails while bringing real issues that black males are faced with to light. TIP represents the fascination niggaz have with getting away with sneaky dumb shit. 40 or 50 gunz and ammo, that is not for protection that is a bad habbit gone array. Getting caught with Excstacy w/ his baby mama.. you get the point. God Bless TIP, get you swag back on track..the game need you.

    Ayo, finally. whoever reading this feel me. TIP sounded real defensive in that letter. Real concerned with what the public feels. “Fuck yall if you aint with me” That some mighty hot words bruh. Im disappointed you (T.I.) aint real enough to see what we see and simply apoligize without all the gangsta talk. Secondly, nigga, take the time to shout out your kids. The reason niggaz love Pac and consider him the greatest is becase WE KNEW his feeling towards the youth. 12 and 13 year olds and younger..He gave shout outs to kids that were slain and important to him. Next letter you write, try that approach. If its love you lookin for. – REBELSTAR Music on Facebook. – Holla At ya boy. or search Cool Cat on FACEBOOK. Get at me.
