T.I. Says ‘No Mercy’ Will Be “Best Work Yet”

T.I. was sent back to prison on Monday (November 1), but he’s already making sure his fans don’t forget him while he’s away.

Much like Lil Wayne’s site WeezyThanxYou.com, which was maintained as a way for fans to keep up and communicate with the Young Money quarterback while he served time at Rikers Island until yesterday (November 4), T.I. will be keeping his fans updated through his official website, trapmuzik.com.

Yesterday, his second message was posted:

“Thank you to all that took the time to check out my new video “Get Back Up” with my homie Chris Brown. And a bigger thanks to those of you who decided to comment (good & bad). To all of you who say ‘He should practice what he preaches’ and “How could he do something so stupid…AGAIN?” You’re absolutely right and I couldn’t agree with you more. But you know what? As history has shown us before, I find my greatest inspiration during my darkest hours. So all fans of music, T.I. or not, should be able to agree that No Mercy will surely be my best work yet. After all isn’t that what it’s all about? If I never went to prison, never did drugs, never f’ed up again, did everything right and never made great music….would you even care enough to comment on T.I.? Doubt it, so bear that in mind while you jump to your conclusions guys. Martin Luther King once said ‘Notice not the comments of your enemies but the silence of your friends.’ So although I’m still in touch…watching, reading and listening, I’m not concerned with what negative people say more than I am with what positive people don’t. Guess that’s enough for now… Love you all still, whether you still love me or not. Real Talk!!! And I would like to give a special I LOVE U to @star_omg and @tinymajormama.”

Earlier this week, Tip began an 11-month sentence at Arkansas’ Forrest City federal jail facility for violating probation.

As previously reported, T.I. will be releasing his seventh solo album, No Mercy, on December 7. —Adam Fleischer

    He might as well have called it Paper Trail 2, because he’s taking the same approach. We all tend to think positive when the long arm of the law has us trapped. This comes to show you that no one atlanta based rapper w/ multiple personalities and gun laced lyricism is safe from the endorsement pullers.

    Damn TIP you going back to jail again cuzz? Man you gotta watch out for these laws out here dude. You are a target, and you sending your fans the wrong message. We need you in these streets making that hot shit, not in jail staring at walls talking shit to O.J. Simpson dude. Respect the game, respect the fans, and respect yourself. You too old to get into the shit you get into now TIP, you have to be more responsible. I got kids just like you, and I don’t want them seeing me in situations like the one you in right now, so I know you feel me. Love from one hard headed nigga to another fam.

You owe to it to yourself big homie but most importantly you owe it to the the fans. So as a TRUE fan i’m saying WE ain’t going nowhere. We were here when you were coming up and we still here. Embrace pain because it builds character. Keep ya head up Tip.
