Clifford Does Crimestoppers

- By Bossip Staff

T.I. has stepped over to the right side of the law, according to a report by Livesteez.

Rapper T.I. is teaming up with local Atlanta news station WSB-TV in a new camapign to help fight crime in metro Atlanta neighborhoods. T.I., born Clifford Harris Jr., is stepping in front of the camera, as the face of a new public service announcement to encourage others to report tips about crimes through an anonymous hotline. “Hey, what’s happening y’all? Some people call me Tip, but this is about another kind of tip that could help our mothers, our sisters, our brothers and our fathers to help get the perpetrators who commit crimes against them off the streets ” T.I. says in the video. “All you gotta do is call Crimestoppers Atlanta. Tips can be anonymous and there’s even a reward.” The new campaign, Atlanta Crimestoppers, is the brain child of WSB-TV investigative reporter Mark Winne. “I think T.I.’s street cred is as powerful as anybody we could get to do it,” said Winne. “There is no telling how many lives this PSA may save,” Winne added.

Although one has to wonder whether this was his own idea given the fact that he has spent d@mn near two decades actually committing crimes, we can’t even fault T.I. for standing up against crime and urging others to do the same.

    Some of those chicks sitting in the front row in the first picture look Cunnn-try. Like corn bread, chicken, pound cake, greens, and hair grease country.

    Besides–

    Mr. Swirl took a stab at you. I noticed you didn’t bother to respond.

    hmmmmmmmm….. I wonder why??????

    Like I typed, loosen up! The top spot has been a joke for as long as I can remember. If it dosn’t affect you, why bother?

    As far as getting out much??

    Let’s see……… let’s see……um…….. It depends on what you mean by “getting out much”.

    Today I–

    Went to the gym.

    Stopped by the grocery store to get a few items.

    Had my tires rotated.

    Filled up my gas tank.

    Picked up my dry cleaning….

    …..all while OUT today.

    See, I get out some!!!

    Lol!!!!!!!!!

    Way to go Tip Harris. It’s about time people know the difference between snitching and doing the right thing. Here is a reminder. Sniching is when you and your boys are doing a caper and one gets caught and tells on the other. Doing the right thing is when you see dem boys doing a crime and an innocent person gets shot, it is now your civic duty to tell what you saw. (it could be someones mom or pop and if it was yours you would want that same thing) So lets all stop this nonsense of who is a snitch and whos not. I grew up in the hood and never have had a problem with the truth. But I still have enough hood in me to straighten out someone who is crooked. I call it being a rightous individual. I will get the popo on your ass if I cant handle it myself, but I will do that only as a last resort.

    @ Tru Diva:

    “Octavia(Check me out!)

    U still a loser, swirl.”

    See? I am very fair in my name-calling. Enjoy the rest of your Fri.

    @ Kigali

    Back to spit your venom huh? Damn your life must be really miserable, you entertain yourself by insulting and making disparaging comments about Black women, and you are a black woman. Did you lick massa’s boots this morning too?

  • blaq

    T.I. good job. A man can admit when he has made mistakes. A man uses himself as a tool to assist his community. A man uses his influence to encourage positive outcomes in the lives of children. Anyone who finds wrong with someone doing right is a very sad example of a human being.

  • Obama08

    Somebody is tryin to get less time in jail. I don’t get it, why wasn’t he doing all this before he got caught up in that mess he was in. I’m sorry but this dude is a joke!!! My opinion!!
