RAPPER T.I. TO BEGIN SENTENCE

 

05.26.09 ---- Rapper T.I. is set to begin at least 10 months of his 366-day stint in the Arkansas Forrest City Correctional Facility today. 

 

 Sunday night T.I. treated his hometown fans to one last concert.

 

The show, billed as TI’s Farewell Concert, was hosted by Grand Hustle comedian Lil’ Duval and lifestyle specialist Kenny Burns.

 

The concert featured performances by the entire Grand Hustle family and a few additional guests as well. Bobby Ray aka B.o.B, Big Kuntry King, Eightball & MJG, Maino, and local acts J Money and NBA all performed before Tip emerged for his own set.

 

On stage, the multi-platinum rapper was greeted by encouraging signs from several fans, bearing messages like “T.I. We Will Miss U!”

 

He addressed his supporters saying that he would stay optimistic and that he hopes his fans would learn from his mistakes.

 

“I’m going to stand up tall, head up high,” he told those in attendance, including celebs like Andre 3000 and Soulja Boy. “What I need y’all to do is pray for me while I’m gone. I’ll see y’all in 366 days.”

 

During a set that included hits from all six of his albums, from “Dope Boyz” to “Live Your Life,” TI gave his all to the crowd of about 16,000, even bringing out his four sons on stage at one point.

 

Prior to the concert, TI spent his last Sunday in Atlanta working.

 

The Grand Hustle camp took advantage of his presence to shoot no less than four music videos, including a clip fro Big Kuntry’s “I Do.”

 

He followed the performance with a Farewell Party at the Velvet Room.
