According to Livesteez, T.I. and Ambassador Andrew Young have teamed up to stop violence:
Rapper T.I. and United Nations ambassador Andrew Young, are joining forces in a new TV documentary taking aim at gun violence in the U.S. The film focuses on T.I., born Clifford Harris Jr., making amends for his federal firearms offenses. Young, an advocate for peace around the world, premiered the hour-long film, “Walking With Guns,” on Sunday in Atlanta. It includes extensive footage of the Grammy-winning artist visiting a rehabilitation hospital in New York to meet patients paralyzed by gang violence. The film also shows T.I. and Young telling young people how to avoid violence, and follows a former gang member who is now a social activist, according to the Associated Press. The film, part of a series called “Andrew Young Presents,” is expected to begin airing Nov. 2 on TV stations around the country. “Violence would still be around without guns,” T.I. said to over 400 attendees during a question-and-answer session after the screening. “But there would be an increased value of life.”
Good work, Clifford. He is working hard to clean up his image before his stint.
