T.I. Arrest -- Sippin' on Sizzurp?

9/2/2010 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Take a close look at the photo of T.I. getting arrested ... and focus on the styrofoam cups in the front and back cupholders ... although cops aren't saying which controlled substance they found in the car, there seems to be evidence of Sizzurp ... aka purple drank ... aka codeine syrup.

 -- A form of codeine falls under the class of drugs for which T.I. and his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, were arrested.

-- Codeine is the main ingredient in Sizzurp, which is a growing problem in the South.

-- Sizzurp is typically ingested in styrofoam cups ... it's become a "thing" in the hip-hop community.

Cops won't say specifically which drug they found, though our sources say it's the class of drugs that does indeed include the main ingredient for Sizzurp.

Both T.I. and "Tiny" were booked on felony possession of a controlled substance.

The entire message of hip hop has been twisted by these new age gangsta's/former actual criminals turning a simple hook into millions.. now its all about the glamour, drinking, drugs, no longer go to school and dont be a fool...its all fake when peeps like T.I ( i want to be a role-model and tell dem kids not to do dis and dat) you freaking liar.. straight to the point its all B.S

thanks to the fakers.. they have killed what Hip-hop was meant to be.. dancin in the streets, over coming adversity, discrimination.. now its' like ..the cops were following me.. why?

CAUSE THE DAMN COPS WERE DOING THEIR JOB LIKE THEY SUPPOSED TO! AND CAUGHT YOUR DUMB BLK BEHIND BREAKING THE LAW!

stupid rappers... he should go to school for realz cause he has no brain and sippin on that crap will send you to the ER faster than she will once she finds out he's cheating on her...

To be a felon he should know better than driving dirty. But what's with the FELONY charge? Thought they just found a lil bit.

You guys at TMZ are really jumping to conclusions here. You see a styrofoam cup and determine it's this? OMG, that's really reaching to conclusions. Not all styrofoam cups mean it's this drink. Sheesh....

You can't be a Boss til you take a lost! How much money u makin to whereas u want to go out party, get fffed up and can't hire a driver. I know i dont have as much money as T.I. but i always have a clean sober driver with a permit to carry wit me. Especially in Hollyhood! Dont forget ur Doctors Rec for the marijuana!

Oh yeah, no proof on what was in the cups to even comment on that!

People! Get a clue! You're getting caught up in media speculation used to generate hype for profit. What intelligent person can make any reasonable analysis without the facts? NONE of which you have! Stop parading your ignorance!!

i try not to comment on this stuff but most of yall are stupid. We dont know what was in the cup, we dont know if they did anything wrong, this did happen in Cali where they have to most honest cops in he world, just ask Rodney King. We should all wait and let the facts come out before we put the man in jail for the rest of his life. And i bet most of the people thats saying he should be back in jail are not black. I dont know why its ok for a white man to drive a $100,000 car and not get pulled over but put a black man in that same car and this is what happen.
