T.I. gets Summoned to Court following LA Arrest

Posted: Friday – September 17, 2010

Here we go again…Rapper T.I. has been summoned to court in Atlanta following his recent arrest in Los Angeles.  The rapper/actor known as “King of the South,” will now deal with the Judge of the Law to talk over violations of probation.

According to E! Online, T.I. will be in federal court in Atlanta for his summons.  He’ll have to discuss why he shouldn’t be sent back to prison after a recent drug arrest in Los Angeles.  That incident saw both T.I. and wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle charged with drug possession.

T.I.’s previous imprisonment came as the result of weapons charges.  The presiding judge in the case was District Court Judge Charles Parnell, who also summoned the rapper back to court for the latest probation discussion.  T.I. blatantly ignored probation terms by submitting a bad urine sample (opiates) and by hanging out with convicted felon Cortez Thomas.  Oh yeah, and you shouldn’t get arrested when you’re on probation…bad move.

Has T.I. become the Lindsay Lohan of rap or hip-hop music, or would you consider Lil’ Wayne more of the Lindsay Lohan story?  Both seem to have their issues with staying out of trouble on probation.  Both have had problems with drug possession and weapons charges.  Lil’ Wayne is currently serving a sentence, while T.I. already did.  It seems T.I. and Lil’ Wayne are much more successful despite their charges and issues, while Lindsay keeps trying for that elusive comeback.  Maybe these two are destined to release a collaboration album together, because they certainly have plenty in common and lots of new material to give to music!


Former Atlanta Mayor Suggests T.I. Was Pulled Over For ‘Driving While Black’

Posted: Friday – September 3, 2010

Former Atlanta Mayor Andy Young has weighed in on the arrest of T.I., claiming the rapper may have been stopped for “DWB – Driving While Black.”

T.I. and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle were arrested after they were stopped in the rapper’s Maybach on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, for allegedly making an illegal U-turn.

Police allegedly smelled the odor of marijuana, searched the vehicle and uncovered a small amount of ecstasy and what is reported to be meth-amphetamines.

Young questioned the police’s initial intent when they stopped the chart-topping rapper/actor, who recently starred in the #1 hit movie, Takers.

“There’s another culture in L.A. that I don’t understand,” Young told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Most people in Los Angeles would wonder why he was stopped. I don’t know why they should have been stopped … When a black man is stopped and not speeding … you call that driving while black.”

Young, who officiated T.I.’s wedding to Tiny in July, also counseled T.I. after the rapper pleaded guilty to federal drug charges.

T.I. immediately notified his probation officer of the arrest, as required by the terms of his probation.

At press time, T.I. is heading back to Atlanta. He will most likely have to appear in court where Judge Charles Pannell Jr. could revoke his probation and send the rapper to jail.

T.I. is going to be back on his way to Atlanta in the next 24 hours,” Don Samuel, one of T.I.’s lawyers, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “It’s almost certain he’ll end up appearing before the court here. But without knowing all the facts, it’s premature to speculate what the court is likely to do.”

According to the terms of T.I.’s probation, the rapper cannot possess or use any narcotic, or frequent any place drugs are sold, used or administered.

Atlanta Hip-Hop star T.I. could be heading back to prison, after police allegedly found meth-amphetamines and ecstasy in his Maybach last night (September 1st) in West Hollywood, California.

According to the LA County Sheriff’s department, the charges T.I. faces include a minimum sentence of a year in state prison, in addition to fines that will be determined by a judge.

According to TMZ.com, T.I. and his wife Tiny Cottle were stopped in their expensive Maybach coup for a traffic violation around 10:30PM last night.

Police searched the vehicle after smelling marijuana and found the drugs, reported to be meth-amphetamines and ecstasy.

Both were booked on felony possession of a controlled substance and have since been released on $10,000 bail, a piece.

Tiny was arrested for possessing marijuana and ecstasy in the past.

In October of 2007, Tiny was arrested for possession of marijuana and ecstasy, during a sting operation that resulted in T.I.’s arrest for attempting to purchase machine guns and silencers.

Kelly Rowland Speaks On First Single From Upcoming Album

Posted: Monday – May 10, 2010

After the flop of R&B singer Kelly Rowland’s second album, she has changed up her look and sound for the lead single Commander which will appear on her upcoming third album. The video, which was directed by Masashi Muto, features Rowland in a custom-made wardrobe and five inch heels showing off her new moves taught to her by choreographer Fatima Robinson.

“The whole concept is very futuristic, very cool. It’s about me being the commander above anything, but it adds a different element of a club atmosphere — a very big atmosphere with very cool people. I’m battling myself with hair, with makeup, with the routines. I had to pull out my dancing shoes for this video.”

Although the album has yet to receive a title, Kelly Rowland confirmed that she has a track with rapper Nelly and hopes to work with T.I. and Diddy. The album is expected to be due out in mid-September.

Commander was produced by French house producer David Guetta who says fans will be enthralled by her new look and sound.

“Kelly’s look in this video is just utterly sexy. It’s like a jungle feel. I feel like we’re in Avatar somewhere, running through the woods, minus the blue paint.”

T.I. Pisses Parents Off After Middle School Apperance

Posted: Thursday – April 22, 2010

The principal of Woodland Middle School in Henry County, New Jersey, has come under fire over rapper T.I.‘s recent appearance.

T.I., born Clifford Harris Jr., appeared at the school on March 5th and spoke to students.

Parents of some students took issue with the fact that they were not notified of who would be speaking to their children.

T.I., who was recently released from a halfway house to house arrest with a curfew, served a year in prison for attempting to purchase multiple machine guns with silencers.

As part of his probation, the rapper was sentenced to 1,500 hours of community service, 1,000 of which were completed prior to his prison sentence.

He flew around the country visiting middle schools, recreational centers and various Boys & Girls Clubs, where he encouraged teens to stay away from drugs, violence and gangs.

Tom Myers, who has four children in the school, was one of several parents who complained about T.I.’s appearance in a letter to principal Dr. Terry Oaks.

“In the future, if T.I. or any other convicted felon needs to perform community service, ask for parental permission to allow our children to be exposed to these questionable individuals,” wrote Tom Myers, who has four daughters in the school.

According to Atlanta’s Channel 2 Action News, Dr. Oates sent a series of questionable replies in defense of the rapper that upset parents.

“I thought about asking a guy who snorted cocaine and got arrested for DUI when he was 30 to come and speak to our kids, but President George W. Bush was not available,” Dr. Oates allegedly replied.

In another letter, Dr. Oates again defended T.I.’s appearance and noted that the rapper had never been convicted of “homicide.”

“Mr. Harris has never been convicted of homicide. We would not be able to adequately staff our states general assembly, our U.S. Congress or the executive branch of our government using your apparent standards,” Dr. Oates allegedly wrote in an email.

School officials are investigating the emails sent by Dr. Oates. They are also looking into their speaker’s policy, which does not require administrators contact parents when a guest comes to the school to speak.
