Big Things Are Stoppin

Filed under: celebrities,entertainment,recent news,Uncategorized — nickisym @ 10:35 pm

for our little friend, T.I–otherwise known as the King of the South. As of Saturday evening he was arrested when his bodyguard turned informant was caught purchasing firearms for the pint-sized entertainer on the day he was supposed to perform on the BET Hip-Hop Awards. He is now in custody of the authorities for trying to buy firearms–machine guns to be exact–and there was also a barage of firearms in his Atlanta home. On top of all of this, he is a convicted felon so he has no business being in possession of these weapons.

I was so sure that T.I. was a smart man. Smart enough not to make such a stupid mistake. I don’t understand why he has need for machine guns and ammunition. I don’t understand why it needed to be purchased on the day he was to appear on the BET Hip-Hop Awards show–or why he needed to purchase them at all, he is not going to war. I don’t understand why a convicted felon would still dare participate in unsavory activity.

I thought that his song “Big Things Poppin” was an anthem telling the world that he has put away the things of his youth. A proclamation that the things he used to do, he doesn’t do anymore. I am sad because he has such promise ahead of him. A career in film, a decent career as a rapper, a commitment to being a father and a boyfriend, and in a blink of an eye this could all be taken away from him.

I really hope this was all a big misunderstanding or better yet…A publicity stunt–that’s what everyone wants to believe anyways.

  1. I heard that little geek from dipset santana has been snitchin’ on everybody. He got ti set up with an undercover for a bodyguard and shit went down hill from there. I heard from some Harlem cats, that it was some type of jealousy between dude and ti because ti was scheduled to do a number of songs and promotion with several different girls that santana couldn’t get to like him following the drop of his contract with Def Jam. I also heard that following the santan & Lil’ Wayne mixtape flop
    santan reportedly got Baby hemmed u in Tennessee…makes you wonder with the nation wide publicity stunt {under the table) agreement with members of G-unot. All the snitching points to the downfall of the weak”east” link.
