T.I. is heading back to jail for nearly a year but not without some words of support from his fellow Atlanta stars.
The superstar MC was sentenced Friday to 11 months in prison for probation violation after he was caught with drugs during a traffic stop in Los Angeles last month. Tip just wrapped up a bid for a felony weapons charge in March and is expected to turn himself in within the next two weeks. As the ATL spitter heads back to prison, some famous faces are sending T.I. some hometown love.
“He just gotta hold his head up,” Atlanta producer and DJ Lil Jon told MTV News on the Tao New York 10th Anniversary red carpet Saturday. “Sometimes you get the wrong curveballs in life but you keep your head up, keep pushing, everything will be good.”
Southern songbird Ciara also sent the MC some messages of support.
“To the big homie T.I., I just want to … send you and your family all my love and support and prayer and, of course, keep your head up strong,” she said. “You survived this long, and before you know it, the journey will be over and I’m hoping that when you come out that things can only continue to get better for you and for your family.”
