Many where wondering just where was T.I. during the taping of the BET Hip-Hop Awards. Well T.I. was arrested a few hours before the taping by Atlanta police. He was picked up at a local shopping mall where police where tipped off’d that he was going to pick up machine guns and silencers that where suppose had been brought by his body guards. It all sounds slightly fishy to me. But stranger things have happened.
T.I. was scheduled to perform during the taping for the awards show. But was detained and was not able to make it to the taping. He won 2 awards during the show and other rappers took his performance spot. During the course of the night rapper Common, who also won 2 BET Hip-Hop Awards, sent T.I. a shout out and wished him well. “I salute my guy T.I., who also won, wherever he is,” said Common.
Hip-Hop legend, KRS-One told the press, “I’m saddened anytime I hear of a hip-hopper being locked up or somehow stunted in his life or his growth. I hope he wasn’t into nothing crazy.” I hope so to! But I’m sure this was all just a mis-understanding and that T.I. will soon be free.
