    Over Memorial Day weekend, incarcerated rapper T.I. sponsored a bus trip for family members of 14 of his fellow inmates to visit the Forrest City Correctional Facility in Forrest City, Arkansas, where he is currently behind bars for just under a year over a probation violation.

    Family and friends who took part in the bus trip, dubbed "To See a Love One," boarded a chartered bus in Atlanta and Alabama on Saturday and visited the prison on Sunday and Monday. "I've been blessed to receive tons and tons of mail from my fans, family and friends, as well as get visits on a regular basis. Unfortunately some guys aren't as fortunate," T.I. said, according to MTV News. "There are a lot of good dudes in here that haven't been able to see their loved ones in years. Their families can't afford the trip so I wanted to help out."


    Are you looking forward to T.I. getting released from prison so he can work on new tunes?
