T.I. -- I'm 'Sick and Motherf**king' Tired of Prison

11/18/2010 8:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper T.I. has unleashed a brutally honest statement about his current stint behind bars -- saying he's "sick and motherf**king tired" of being locked up.

T.I. Prison

T.I.'s people just helped the imprisoned superstar post a message on his website, in which T.I. says the time he's serving inside a federal prison in Arkansas is "truly a pain I have never felt before."

In his statement, T.I. -- who's in the first month of an 11-month sentence -- says, "I don' t know what effect this will have on my life moving forward but I'm certainly sick and mother f*cking tired of going to jail, juve, prison, the pen, correctional facilities or whatever else you want to call it."

He adds, "I'd have been better off doing a 5-10 year bid one time than going in time and time again for days, weeks and months for the last 15 years of my life."

But T.I. says he's finally realized what he needs to do to become a better person saying: "At one time I thought my motivation for continuing was for my fans, my partna Philant, my pops, my grandmama, even for the haters or the people I let down.

But nah... I got to do this sh*t for me!!! I'll be God damned if I've come all this way and made it through so much hell to let it go down like this! F*ck that! If an hour in the dark is worth a second in the sun then pass me my mother f*ckin' shades cause I'm ready to cash my darkest hours in...ASAP!!!"

Check out the full, unedited message after the jump:

"This experience is truly a pain I have never felt before and that's saying a lot for a nigga who's been down locked up as many times as I have. I see this as a real ass whoopin'. The kind you don't just go back outside to play afterwards. You take ya ass to bed and don't come out of your room until it's time to go to school.

I don' t know what effect this will have on my life moving forward but I'm certainly sick and mother f*cking tired of going to jail, juve, prison, the pen, correctional facilities or whatever else you want to call it. I'd have been better off doing a 5-10 year bid one time than going in time and time again for days, weeks and months for the last 15 years of my life.

Even though it's been a long road, I'm still standing, barely but nevertheless still standing. At one time I thought my motivation for continuing was for my fans, my partna Philant, my pops, my grandmama, even for the haters or the people I let down. But nah... I got to do this shit for me!!! I'll be God damned if I've come all this way and made it through so much hell to let it go down like this! F*ck that! If an hour in the dark is worth a second in the sun then pass me my mother f*ckin' shades cause I'm ready to cash my darkest hours in...ASAP!!!

A lot of folks had fathers or father figures in the house to raise them into manhood. I'm not trying to make any excuses for my situation but my father was a hustler that lived in New York. My uncle was a local big time dope boy turned 10 year federal inmate.

 My mother and grandparents did the best they could but I found my manhood in the trap and in prison systems. But I found it. And nan one of mine will ever have to feel the cold tight grip of a handcuff or grace the presence of a jail cell if I can help it.

Over my dead body!

So if you can't respect that you ain't rocking with my movement then Fuck you dog! I know a bunch of mother f*ckers who are.....

- Love KING"

First of all, You need to calm down a bit. Lay off the profanity and get in the habit of being a nice talker !
In that way, you can start to think differently, for both yourself and your family, friends and fans.
YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY TO BECOME A BETTER PERSON, ( AS YOU SAID) ok ??????????/
(( WISH YOU WELL , ALWAYS ))

Why does anyone care that you uncle was a dope boy? You are really reaching. Your dad had alzheimer's and that is sad but you don't mention your grandfather was a record producer. Take responsibility for your actions and don't try to find someone to blame. Your just a dumb ass face the facts and try to get a life you have like 10 kids

STOOPID IS AS STOOPID DOES !!! I don't feel sorry for dumb millionaire celebrities who don't have enough sense or enough smarts on how to NOT keep out in trouble. His most recent songs talk about "hope and changing the past - yada yada yada" but he's just full of hot air and just trying and succeeding on making another quick $$ BUCK $$ off of other wanna be gang-sters/stars/studs/dunces who fall for his B-S. He gets what he deserves. I wish him the best in the future but I'm not losing any sleep over his situation. "ACTION SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS" ... sooner or later people learn but they have to learn it the hard way like us all.

This is too funny but a reminder to everyone that there is a very large group of people in this world who don't think the rules apply to them.

It's called a disconnect to reality.

Right-winger not jobs, liberal nutbags, muslim extremist, rich tax loophole executives....They all suffer the same problem. They'll all be crying a different story when it's their judgement day, that's for sure... "GOD...I WAS SO MISUNDERSTOOD!!!"
