Very Interesting    

Hey #9.... It looks like the "hood" did you some good. Great spelling, sentence structure and way to express your thoughts. LOL!

Next month when you check in with your probation officer, ask him/ her to sign you up for some adult education classes so you know how to speak intelligently.. without speaking ebonics.

I can only imagine the best thing you can do is make kool-aid.

#13 - Well played! Perhaps #9 should have paid attention in school rather than play with his cellphone all day, texting his "thugz." What a loser.

Sad when he was heading to the top of his game.Even after living in the hood and getting the chance to provide well for his children he still manages to let that ghetto mentality rule his life. Maybe when he gets out he can see that he can focus on his talent and leave these people alone who perpetuate bad behavior. This is the problem with black america but yet they always blame the unability to get ahead.This is what happens when given that chance.Hopefully his babymomma who was in one of those 90's girl groups will get her act together as well because rumor has it she likes to party.

#9- Gee, I can't imagine why people have such a horrible perception of people from the "da hood". Of course none of us on here have experienced the hood like you or the thug rappers have. If we had we'd be ignorant and crying victim all the time too. Please learn how to communicate better. I'm sorry to sound so mean, but nobody will ever take you seriously when you can't put together a coherant sentence.

I wasn't going to comment but this is has gotten funny...# 3 love it, that line is off Chappelle's Show, LOLOL! # 9 is trying too hard to sound "hard" and that's not even ebonics for whoever said that, that's just complete idiot-speak. #13 couldn't have said it any better...# 15 didn't hit me until you pointed it out... exactly teach the kids?!?!? Huh!?!
Too bad T.I.... he had some good songs...he'll be back.

I suppose all opinions can be considered in this situation, but the fact still remains T.I.P is the best rap artist on the scene!
He will still be "HOT" when he gets out! Two questions to all who hate on this MAN...Do you consider yourself a "good" person? Do you think GOD does? YOU BE THE JUDGE.

Ha thats funny most of you people on here are calling him a thug..... aaaaaa cause he has guns???? get a life have you ever to think h just has a likeing to them, for own persona reasons. But I guess this is America and we thrive on casting judgement on people we dont know well on a good note he makes in one year then what you guys make i 10 and when he gets out he'll come out make an album win a grammy and influnce your children alot more than you ever will hahahahahahahah Thug - 1. a cruel or vicious ruffian, robber, or murderer.
2. (sometimes initial capital letter) one of a former group of professional robbers and murderers in India who strangled their victims.
