HEY Y’ALL….I’M BACK!!!
I know, I know it’s been a minute but a sista needed some passport stamps in my life and bounced to Egypt real quick. What an absolutely amazing experience. To see the gi-nourmous pyramids, Sphinx, tombs, hieroglyphics, temples & mosques up close & personal is nothing as described in the history books. The visions are a thousand times more magical. Big ups to Cairo, Luxor, Aswan, Abu Simbel and all of the Nubians!
Alright, now that I’m back on my grind, let’s get down to business!
T.I.’s FATE LIES ON PROBATION HEARING
Well, you’ve all heard the sayings…“You can take a person out of the projects but you can’t take the projects out of a person.” “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.” “Money can’t buy you happiness, class or common sense.”
So in case you’ve been living under a rock, T.I. and his wife Tiny were arrested on felony possession of a controlled substance, the control turned out to be ecstasy. T.I. now may face a probation violation, as he is on three years supervised probation resulting from a 2007 gun charge.
T.I has a hearing set for October 15th that will determine his fate. The court will evaluate if Tip had violated his probation after being arrested for possession of a controlled substance, failing a drug test that found marijuana, ecstasy & codeine in his system, and being in contact with a known felon.
Brace yourself, cause they may just throw the book at him. He may not have that Lindsay Lohan luck!
