T.I. was busted last month on felony possession of a controlled substance ... while he was on probation for a 2009 federal gun possession conviction.

T.I. told the judge he needed help for drug addiction and begged not to be sent back to prison.

We're told one of the officers from Wednesday's jumper incident testified on T.I.'s behalf.

He has two weeks to turn himself in.

Good. What he thinks he's so cool won't get busted. 11 months this no talent punk got lucky. Enjoy your "street cred" while you're bending over or on your knees or both.

Rapping what no talent quick way to make a buck. Can any of these Rappers actually sing? Actually have a voice. I'm talking getting away from rap sitting on a stoole and just "singing" a song? Any moron can rhyme in a mic and with all the electronics sound decent.

Had this been Lohan or Hilton it would be totally different.

I say yes he needs to go back to jail to learn a lesson, but it's unfair since so many white celebs get off.

Justice is prejudice.

Hilton and Lohan, those 2 morons got lucky but the BIG DIFFERENCE THEY WERE MISDEMEANORS. This clown just got CONVICTED FOR FELONY GUN POSSESSION. Now busted for FELONY POSSESSION OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE while on Felony Probation.

C'mon, you know Felony Charges are a whole different ballgame with different rules.

Black, White or whatever doesn't matter. He got caught.

@ miked :
Yes, I co-sign with you. The proper term for this is INSTITUTIONALIZED RACISM.
It is alive and well. This is a clear example of it.
Lohan and Hilton repeatedly break the law, and they get minutes, hours and days in jail.
TI breaks the law and gets 11 months.

......And before someone lashes back at my comment ....
Yes I did apples to apples comparisons of all 3 cases, and have also done research on institutionalized racism.
I have also had several NYC police officers tell me that certain (unnamed) groups do not even get booked when they get to the precinct. The Sergent just lets some of them go.
