T.I. is still keeping an eye on things while serving his year-and-a-day prison sentence for felony weapons charges. Last week, Ludacris tweeted that he spoke to his fellow Atlanta heavyweight.
Luda’s messages reveal that Tip is keeping up on current events and feels for his peers Lil Wayne and Lil Boosie, who both have to go to prison at the top of their careers, much like Tip has had to do.
“Talking to TIP,” Luda tweeted. “He says to tell Wayne and Boosie he Hates the situations y’all are in, but he’s ridin’ with the both of you.”
‘Cris added that Tip had a message for the kids in the Windy City in the wake of the Derrion Albert murder: “TIP also says to all my Chicago peoples, cut out all that damn nonsense!!! Sh– has got to STOP!!!!!! I 2nd that!!!”
The 16-year-old Albert was killed in the streets of Chicago several weeks ago while trying to break up a fight. The tragedy was captured on cell phone video and posted on the Internet, horrifying viewers. The Reverend Jesse Jackson and Nation of Islam minister Louis Farrakhan both attended Albert’s funeral earlier this month.
Tip had a chance to speak out publicly through fiancée Tameka “Tiny” Cottle during the recent BET Hip-Hop Awards. The King of the South reassured fans he would be home soon. Tip also won Best Hip-Hop Collabo and Best Hip-Hop Video for “Live Your Life” with Rihanna and CD of the Year for Paper Trail.
