T.I. Issues Prison Statement
T.I. has issued a statement from prison. The rapper has about four months remaining on an 11 month sentence for violating his probation in 2010. In the statement, T.I. thanks his fans for their continued support.
"What up world? Been a minute. I'd like to thank you all for the thousands of letters, cards, books, pictures and words of encouragement," T.I. says in the statement. "I'm truly grateful. I'm sure you already know I'm nearing the end of this chapter of my life, and looking forward to taking all of the things I've learned with me while leaving all the rest of the "BS" behind. I've been tuned in somewhat to what's been happening out there. I can't even begin to tell y'all how much being on the outside looking in, having to witness all that's going on (and not going on) in the game affects me. Not being able to do what I love especially. It's like a whole other sentence within itself."
"But I really do appreciate all the love, respect, shout outs and salutations during this very difficult period in my life," T.I. continued. "Everybody from da homies Weezy, Killa Mike, R. Rozay my lil bruh B.o.B, Terrence J (106 & Park) and my "durty" Nelly."
"I'll be releasing a record in the near future (couple of weeks tops) to hold y'all over til I get back in action," he added. "During this time of seclusion I have developed a mind full of thoughts, ideas, plans and strategies of change to incorporate into my professional endeavors, as well as my personal lifestyle. But none of them is as strong as my determination to conquer my own imperfections and my will to WIN NO MATTER WHAT!!! I love, respect and appreciate all those who have stood beside me and I have accepted those you didn't. But one things for sure and two for certain. As long as the Most High blesses me with the ability to live and breathe....My campaign will continue!!! Stronger, smarter, bigger and better than ever. For those that doubt that...See me when they free me."
