Ok listen up, we’ve been calling rapper TI our hero because we just adore his music and personality. But now, the man has turned into a real life-saving hero. Yesterday our man, Tip, helped talked down a man attempting to jump off a 22-story building in Atlanta after listening to Ryan Cameron’s Radio Show on V103.
The hip hop superstar called to see if there was anything he could do to help, and immediately went to the scene. After meeting with the police officers, he recorded a heartfelt video message for the man, and waited as officials played the video for the man on the ledge.
In the video, Tip said:
“Nothing is that bad. Nothing is worth taking your life. I’m here to help you. Please come down to talk to me.”
And after seeing Tip’s video, the man agreed to step off the ledge and talked to TI.
We know some of you are asking: Was this a publicity stunt?
In the interview with Hot 107.9’s The Durtty Boyz, TI explained:
How can I plan this? I don’t even understand how someone in a clear-thinking mind could even proposturalize such poppycock. It don’t make no sense to a rational thinking person. How in the hell could you say that someone, just because to benefit myself, I went out of my way? I didn’t do it, God did it! God did all the work, I just showed up. I’m not taking no credit, I’m not trying to say that I did this and I did that. All I did was show up and [tell] the officials, “If there’s anything I can do to help us resolve this peacefully, I’m willing.”
