The black community is doomed to a never ending cycle of poverty, ignorance, violence, drugs, and crime. All due to the hip-hop thug culture.

No matter though, they are building enough prisons to keep young black males locked up for a very long time. I'm not worried.

When I graduate college, what will you be doing? Getting frisked for drugs, or weapons? When I earn my degree, what will you be earning? A 20 year sentence in prison for weapons charges? When I accept that 60,000 a year job, what will you be accepting? Prison rape?

Go on and live your "thug fantasy" it will end sooner or later, you'll either be dead or in prison. Nice life you picked out for yourself! HA HA HA!

But you know something, we do have one thing in common. We are both future statistics. I will be just another white college graduate, and you will be just another black man in prison.

I think that was just plain DUMB for his girlfriend (Tiny:)Xscape) to have dope on her when she knew her man was going on a HOT run! Now thats stupid! And TI should have known something wasnt right when all of a sudden he had to be the one to make the exchange. When plan "A" fails. Forget it! Theres no plan B in my book. If another "so-called" friend / body-guard couldn't have gotten the amunition, then I just cant get it. If I'm a convicted felon, my hands wouldnt be on chit. Slow down baby boy. BE EASY! If they didnt have you personally / physically making the deal, then it could have been your word against the snitch. Dont talk shady business to me over the phone. Communicate via-email under an anonymous name next time.

Cutipie, you're an idiot. You're upset about a "snitch" but not about a crack dealer. You're not upset about a convicted felon possessing machine guns with silencers. Gee, I wonder what he would do with those??

People like you are disgusting pieces of trash. You are the reason black people are killing black people at ridiculous rates. I hope one day someone like TI does something to you or someone you love, then you can go on the news and beg for people to come forward to help you. You make me sick.

To let it be known I`m 54 years of age and a female. I raised 2 sons that have done rather well for themselves without being raised in the ghetto.And I also was not raised in the ghetto. So for you to say that I`m the cause. I say to you and unknown that your the cause. Not once did i say that he was right for what he did. Have a nice Day.

TI is a very liked and also a very hated artist. I think he was getting those gunz for protection for when hes out on tour / doing shows. Remember his close friend was murdered returning from a show just because the person in the audience didnt like TI. I dont think hes a hateful person, I just think hes afraid for his life and he feels that his bodyguards need better weapons in order to secure his safety.

Cutipie, the post you made above was complaining about the "snitch," not about a crack dealer trying to get his hands on guns. You have not said one thing about TI, just the "snitch." Let's hear what you have to say about TI.

If TI was in fear for his life, he should have changed his lifestyle and hired security guards to protect him, since he forfeited his right to own guns when he decided it was cool to poison black neighborhoods with his crack dealing.

? you r obviously talking about something you know nothing about. TI didnt poison any neighborhood. That chit u talkn sound like some straight Entertainment News. For someone who never stepped their foot on the grounds of TI's hometown, you think you know everything and you r sounding like a IDIOT! Who said the man was a crack dealer? How can a artist change his lifestyle? His career is based on parties, and parties, and more parties. How would you go by quitting your job thats bringing you a fat paycheck? And you're doing something you love to do.?
He did have hired security DUMMY!

Who said he was a crack dealer? He was convicted of crack cocaine possession, ass! You're obviously an idiot if don't think crack has poisoned black neighborhoods.

You don't have to crack slinging, gun toting, uneducated jackass to be a rapper. TI made the decision to be all of these things.

You people need better role models, this kind of thing only hurts the black population.

You really ought to condemn these criminal rappers. The rest of the country still waits for the day that the black people stand up and say enough is enough. This hip-hop thug prison culture image will no longer be allowed to corrupt the youth.

I bet there are thousands of young black males out there who are embracing this news, like prison is something to be proud of. Prison is not something to aspire to. Prison is a cold, lonely hell.

There just doesn't see to be any hope for the black community, until they rids themselves of this awful social stigma, this violent hip-hop criminal culture.

How can my comments hold no value when they are 100% true?! TI was CONVICTED of crack cocaine possession. What legitimate reason did he have for possessing that crap?? NONE! TI arranged for his body guard to buy those machine guns and silencers. The feds have him ON TAPE proving this FACT. He was caught with guns in his car and in his home in a safe in his bedroom that opens with his fingerprint! A first year law school student could prosecute this case and win.

TI go BYE BYE for many years!

It is so pathetic how retarded the Black Community has become. You hold NO ONE responsible for their own actions, because it is all 'Whiteys' fault no matter what. As long as this continues, you will continue to remain in the lowest social and financial rungs of society... Hope you like the ghetto - because it doesn't look like you have any desire to leave it.
