It's Back to Jail For T.I.

Apparently, talking a suicidal man off the ledge - literally!- wasn't enough to induce good karma for rapper T.I. The rapper -Clifford Harris on all legal documents- was sentenced to 11 months in jail for violating his probation when he was arrested in Los Angeles last month on drug possession charges. Tip had been in jail on federal weapons charges previously. The sentence was handed down last Friday.
TMZ reported that Tip told the judge that he needed help for his drug addiction and that he begged not be sent back to prison. It fell on deaf ears, apparently, and he has two weeks to turn himself in and start his sentence.
What a roller coaster year for the rapper. His new album, King Uncaged, was delayed. His movie, Takers, stole the number one slot on its opening weekend. He got married. He got arrested. He is going back to jail. Poor guy!
Will more good rap music be the end result of this arrest and jail sentence? At least Lil Wayne is getting out of the big house in two weeks.
