T.I. Begins Federal Prison Sentence In Arkansas

Authorities say rapper T.I. has been booked into a federal prison in Arkansas to serve a year and a day sentence on a weapons conviction.

Prison spokeswoman Linda Thomas says T.I. has entered the prison, but couldn't give an intake time for the Atlanta rapper, whose real name is Clifford J. Harris Jr.

T.I. was to report at noon CDT to begin serving his sentence. At 12:29 p.m., a black van with Georgia license plates and tinted windows pulled up to the prison. Guards and prison officials in three vehicles escorted the van to the prison grounds.

    Sandra Bullock contributes more to charity than all the so called rap artist together.

    To J Roc: Very good point. That's something else I don't let my kids listen to either.

    When RAP first came out it was about life in the streets and now it is all about "Look what I got and you ain't".I can not believe that people fall for that crappola.

    Rap is nothing more than bad poetry with a beat. For the most part, it does nothing more than glamorize drugs and murder, while simultaneously de-humanizing women. It galls me that our youth idolize and glorify these arrogant, worthless punks. Wilma, you said it..this will only help his image among his fans. Our nation seems to sink a little lower every year, and rap is a huge part of that.

    Talented guy coco? I can rap with the best of them....it requires no talent. But this will give him "street cred" though.
