TI’s Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go

I certainly called this one when speaking to some friends earlier this year…it’s been confirmed that T.I. will have his own reality show on MTV. The show will follow him during his last 45 days before heading to prison for illegal weapons possession charges.

From Thisis50.com:

The docu-series, which began filming in June 2008 and will continue to shoot until March 2009, will allow viewers a further look into T.I.’s world, as they share in the birth of his sixth child, the release of his latest album Paper Trail and efforts by the rapper to help a group of at-risk teens. Additionally, the show will look at T.I.’s struggle to manage his personal life while completing his required 1,000 hours of community service and coming to terms with going to jail at the height of his career. To date, T.I. has done 864 hours.

Road to Redemption is not designed to be part of the community service hours the entertainer has to complete before beginning his prison sentence on March 27. Overall, the rapper hopes the series will “scare teens straight” in an effort to steer them clear of the gang lifestyle and culture. T.I.’s Road to Redemption: 45 Days To Go will premiere February 10 on MTV.

    I think that it is great what he is doing by helping others realize that they have options besides what is giving to them. I have a teen group that I started. I am only 22 years old, but I am doing what I can to make a difference.

    Your somebody because the GOOD LORD MADE YOU SOMEBODY WHEN HE CREATED YOU,
    The Lord has made youaFather, and provider, and put a young Lady in your Life who Loves you, God gives you Favor everyday that you wake up, that means no matter where you are, you remember Young Man, that you are somebody,and the Good Lord has even more for you.. You know Ti I have a nephew is in prison, and I let Him know that he is still somebody, Ti alway remember that you can speak Life or Death into your Life so choose your Words very Carefully. God Bless you Alway, and ,may you let God Keep you…
