T.I. Sponsors Bus Trip For Family Members To Visit Inmates
Just because T.I. is locked behind bars, doesn’t mean the “King of the South” can’t be a good Samaritan.
Reported by MTV, T.I., who is servicing an 11-month prison sentence at the Forrest City Correctional Facility in Forrest City, Arkansas, sponsored a bus trip for 46 family members of 14 fellow inmates to visit the prison.
The trip was called “To See a Love One,” and boarded a bus in Atlanta and Alabama on Saturday and visited the prison on Sunday and Monday.
“I’ve been blessed to receive tons and tons of mail from my fans, family and friends, as well as get visits on a regular basis. Unfortunately some guys aren’t as fortunate,” T.I. said in a statement to MTV News. “There are a lot of good dudes in here that haven’t been able to see there loved ones in years. Their families can’t afford the trip so I wanted to help out.”
T.I. is currently serving time for violating his probation in 2010.
He is scheduled to be released from prison on September 29th, 2011.
