TI Does The View?

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Clifford used to be a gangster, but is now reformed and does shows like The View:

Atlanta rapper and actor T.I. visited the ladies of “The View” live Monday morning on ABC. He was there to perform “Whatever You Like,” the hit single from his new No. 1 album, “Paper Trail.” But first, the rapper had to answer some pointed questions regarding that guilty plea on those pesky federal weapons charges stemming from his arrest a year ago as he tried to purchase machine guns and silencers in a Midtown Publix shopping center. The arrest occurred just hours before he was due to hit the red carpet down the street at the Atlanta Civic Center as the most nominated artist at the 2007 BET Hip-Hop Awards.“I can’t excuse it,” T.I. said. “When you’re in my line of work, more people want to kill you than congratulate you. I have a family to protect. It sways your judgment.” With sunglasses perched atop his head, the rapper legally named Clifford Harris Jr. said he’s learned a few things since the arrest. “You’ve got to walk with God instead of walking with the guys. It took me a while to learn that.” T.I. is awaiting sentencing in the case. As a convicted felon, jail time is almost a certainty. On another stint in stir, T.I. said: “I’m concerned, but I’m not scared. I’m not thrilled about it. I look forward to getting it over with.”

Man we get it. You’re walking with God, yatta, yatta, yatta. You’d better walk with God and a shank when you hit the pen. The man’s new single is out right now and he’s over here sh*ttin bricks becoming a jail house preacher. SMH

    Yeah, I saw the whole thing with TI on the view and he wouldn’t get straight to the point when Whoopi asked him what happened with the whole gun charge. Sherri had to interrupt him and clarify what happened because he kept beating aroung the bush. My whole thing is, if he can’t even admit to what he did wrong, he didn’t learn a thing.

    Real Gansters must walk with GOD – who do you think keeps them alive regardless of them living recklessly trying to kill themselves..

    The Game and Weezy got it right…God has the power to give life and take it away..it’s not your guns..T.I. is doing something right..plus the man’s baby girl is in heaven looking down on him…I think he just got really confused with more money/more problems and he thought (for a second) that he was the problem solver with a revolver…

    (I crack myself up sumtimes…now watch me walk away…push…push…fierce!!)
