T.I.'s latest effort, No Mercy hit stores last week, and has debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard charts with 160,000 sold copies.
Since then, T.I. has released another letter from jail thanking his fans for their support while he serves his 11-month sentence after violating his probation from his 2007 weapons charge.
"First off I'd like to thank everybody again for going out and supporting the “Hustle” yet again with “No Mercy” last week. I can't say enough on how much I appreciate the support and all the positive feedback," says T.I.
The southern rapper shares that even behind bars, he has been keeping up with tweets, letters, reviews and comments, for which he is extremely appreciative of.
"I read so many tweets, letters, reviews and comments that spoke volumes to how much love was still out there and how much respect still exists for my art and my passion. I put so much of myself into what I do. I even read over the negative comments cuz' that's the kind of energy I feed off of to adjust, evolve and improve my craft until it manifests into the closest thing to perfection on the next go-round."
T.I. say"s that he is currently deciding the next single, and enduring these circumstances is allowing him to build his character.
I love hearing your opinions on what songs you like most for the next singles. We are taking all of them into consideration as we decide right now on which direction to head in. I know this seems like an unfortunate set of circumstances to endure for a career with so much potential but remember adversity builds character and character takes you places money can't. I know what's in store for me in the future so I ain't trippin' and neither should you. For now all my love and best wishes to you and yours for the holidays. Y'all hold it down out there and I'll do the same in here. And continue to spread the word about “No Mercy” & Team T.I.."
T.I. recently dropped his visuals to "No Mercy," featuring The-Dream.
