With only a matter of days to his incarceration, TI said that his “official day of reckoning” is not the thing he’s really thinking about. TI told SOHH: “[I] focus on today and let tomorrow handle itself. That’s all I can do. I don’t have [to think about it]. I know it’s there. It doesn’t require any thought. I think about preparing myself financially, making sure that everything is in place that I need it to be in order for the lifestyle of my family to continue in the way that it must.”
If you’re a die-hard TI fan who can’t wait for his ‘just-out-of-jail’ concert, don’t put your hopes too high ‘coz Tip said he’s not planning to go back to the rap scene too soon. “I might take me about a week or two to myself. Kick it with my fan, go on vacation, let my hair down a little bit just to clear my head and prepare myself for the rigorous schedule that will be placed in front of me to make up for lost time,” he said, giving us all assurance that he will definitely be back, only after spending quality time with the family. “I’m not gonna sit still too long. I don’t celebrate success too long, I just try to work on the next successful opportunity.”
After being arrested in 2007 for an illegal purchase of three machine guns and two silencers for $12,000, Tip received a deferred jail sentence of one year and one day, followed by three years supervised release plus 1,500 hours of community service and a $100,000 fine. Last month Tip accepted a plea deal that would keep him out of jail for some time, and this deal involves home confinement as well as completing 1,000 hours of community service before his jail time. The 1,000 hours community service can be seen through Tip’s reality show in MTV: Road to Redemption where the rapper helps at-risk kids and teach them tough love to not make the same mistakes he did.
One thing Tip taught us all to do all these times is lookin’ fly. And if you wanna look fly like him, here’s a new polo shirt release from TI’s clothing line AKOO (A King Of Oneself).
