T.I. Gets More Prison Time
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, T.I. told the court that “I screwed up big time, and I’m sorry. I’m truly and sincerely sorry. I don’t want and I don’t need to use drugs anymore. I want them out of my life.”
A rep for Atlantic Records, T.I.’s label, released the following statement: “T.I. is such an important and valued member of our Atlantic family. We offer to him and his family our continued love and support during this very difficult time.”
Really!? Now come on Atlantic Records, this is the reason WHY there is so many problems with todays youth. It's because of statements like this from corporations in SUPPORT of people like T.I. who apparently think they can just break the law and get away with it. Granted, T.I. is going to jail whereas Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and numerous other folks seem to walk away and that doesn't seem quite fair from where I stand but again all of these exploits only serve to show kids that you can do such things and you don't have to pay the consequences.
Record labels and studios should be more responsible and just DROP these artists and actors.
