Fresh Off 20 Best Rap Songs Honor, Rapper TI Becomes a Hero

TI Rapper

Fresh off of making howiGit’s list of The 20 Best Rap Songs of All-Time (which he considers more significant than any Grammy), TI became an American hero yesterday when he “arrived out of nowhere” and talked a man out of jumping off a 22-story Atlanta hotel building. TI was leaving his house as he heard of the potential jumper on the radio, and promptly drove to the scene where he told police that he was willing to offer his assistance. The jumper was informed that TI was there to talk to him, and TI delivered the inspirational message, “Life ain’t that bad.” The man was later taken into a local hospital for a psychological evaluation.

TI’s heroics come shortly after he was arrested on drug charges last month, when he was pulled over with his wife in Hollywood driving a car that smelled of marijuana and supposedly contained ecstasy.  These charges are a breach of TI’s probation, a result of gun charges that led to him spending 9 months in prison and 3 months in a halfway house last year. His probation revocation hearing is to be held this Friday — one can’t help but wonder if his heroic act will help get him a lesser sentence, as his MTV show, TI’s Road to Redemption did last year.

The rapper’s new album King Uncaged was slated for a September 28 release, but has been pushed back due to his legal troubles.

    I’m baffled by this entire situation. How would the cops let him do this?

    • He’s TI baby. Nobody can escape his swag.

      • j-bone

        lol it really does seem like a movie or a south park.

        “Sir please dont do it TI is here to tell you everything is going to be okay”
        “TI is here? holy shit ill get down right now”

        I also like how they say he got in his car heard it on the radio and decided this guy needs TI’s help.

      • You know what? I think we could all use a little help from TI. I bet one day he’ll be a pastor of some sort.

    my guess is that TI paid this dude to go up there and threaten to jump.. TI then would come on the scene and talk him down making him look like a hero.. some good press before a court date can never hurt.

    Like he heard some guy was gonna jump and just drove his car over there? what if it was a 60 year old man who ha no clue who TI even was.. it seems just strange yet hilarious and awesome

    So TI makes a reference to pressing the reset button in a video game and the guy says you know what Mr. I, you are right Ill get down. It does smell pretty fishy, was their a camera crew already on the scene when TI arrived.
