T.I. -- I'm Becoming 'Smarter' in Prison

12/7/2010 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper T.I. claims he's becoming a better man during his stint in prison -- telling fans, "The longer I sit, the smarter I get."

T.I. just penned a new letter to his fans (which a member of his team posted on his website) explaining, "It does'nt [sic] matter how long it'll be before the next time you see me.  What matters is that I'll be a better man before that time comes."

He also reveals that he's been trying to understand God's "plan" for him  -- saying, "How do you tell God Almighty that all you wanna do is LIVE LIFE ???  What if all you wanna do is be a father to your kids, a husband to your wife, and son to your mother."

As we previously reported, T.I. is serving an 11 month sentence in an Arkansas prison stemming from a 2009 gun conviction.

He's still got more than 9 months to go.

It is amazing how many of these idiots get religion in jail. Let's review He was in jail already and came out, so what that didn't teach him anything. A hole thought he could do whatever he wanted and there were no consequences GETS CAUGHT, claims he didn't know there were drugs in his car ( freekin moron- how dumb do you think the police are) when your tooling around town in your big ass black SUV, music pumping to get attention...Well dumbass, you got it alright, your ass is where you belong.

IN THAT CASE T.I SHOULD BE A NOBLE PRIZE WINNER. HE'S BEEN IN AND OUT OF JAIL ALL HIS LIFE. I WISH THIS FOOL WOULD JUST SHUT UP AND STOP TRYING TO BE A ROLE MODEL. JUST RAP MAN. A PARENT WOULD BE AN IDIOT IF THEY HAD THEIR CHILD LOOKING TO THESE CELEBRITIES FOR ROLE MODELS. JUST STFU ALREADY!!!! DUMBPHUCK!!!!!

Well, I like T.I. but, he says he'll be "A better man " when he gets out. It seems that he should have been a "better man" the first time all this happened when he went to jail.

Once he gets out, I give him less than 6 months before he's in trouble with the law again.
