Well it finally arrived, the highly anticipated album from the KING of the SOUTH. And let me tell ya, you can rock the whole CD from start to finish. He don't hold his tounge for nothin on this album, and its one that all types of people will love and relate to. Regular people can relate to almost everyone of his tracks, because its all "REAL". It has tons of star studded colaborations, including Justin Timberlake on the last track "Dead and Gone", that has the baddest beat, you just wanna keep replaying it along with several other cuts. I'll rock this one for another year until the next one comes out. I will say it does show a more mature side of TIP, and where he is at in creating his music, who else do you know that can have, John Legend, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Jay Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Ludacris all on one hit record, no one but the KING!!

TI and Tiny stepped out for the first time in 6 months, after TI pled guilty to federal weopons charges on March 27. Earlier that day TI visited 4 elementary schools in the Atlanta area speaking to kids as part of his sentencing stipulation. According to defense attorneys all across the country TI's sentencing agreement is the first of its kind and he of course knows how fortunate he is. He will serve 1,500 hours community service over the next year, followed by less than a year prison time, and a year of house arrest after that. Atleast he will be able to see the birth of his new baby boy, as well as do concerts, act in movies and conduct his business as usual for the next year while doing the community service.

Rapper T.I. is expected to file a change of plea motion in court today. The star is expected to enter a guilty plea and be given 1,500 hours community service, speaking to youth groups around the country about the pitfalls of guns, gangs, and drugs. That is then supposed to be followed by 12 months jail time. The jail time of course can be lessened or increased depending on compliance and good behavior. This is not final until the hearing at 1:30 today, in which the judge will make the final ruling.

Rapper TI is by no means broke, but a source close to TI has revealed that, TI knows there is a "Possibility" he may do prison time, so he is selling several of his personal automobiles and his interest/ownership in Elite auto, an Atlanta automobile shop. TI will also recieve back whatever personal bond he has posted for himself after the trial is over. TI really cares about the welfare of his family so in the event some thing does not go his way in court, his family will be able to live very well. But TI is still very optimistic he will not be found guilty, and hopefully he'll be able to be there for the birth of his new son. February 19th is when his defense will hear if evidence from the prosecution will be suppressed. As ALWAYS, TI and his family are in our prayers.

Well with February 19th just 2 weeks away TI's court date is approaching fast. The rapper is confident that he will be cleared on all charges, and with a new baby on the way lets hope. TI and his legal team will be waiting to hear whether the motion to supress will be granted. TI is still on house arrest at his Atlanta home, and as he has stated previously he has faith in the legal system and plans to be cleared on all charges. And blushing mother to be (TINY) has been spotted a few times in Atlanta looking beautiful in her pregnant state. I hope the couple works through this so that they can enjoy this time as a family.

As you all know TI pled not guilty to fedaral weopons charges in October, now he will have to wait a few more weeks for the U.S. Magistrate to decide whether evidence in the weopons case was aquired illegally. Attorneys for TI say there was no warrant to search or no probable cause, therefore all statements and fruit thereof should be suppressed. The governments case could be in serious jeopardy if TI's defense can successfully argue the motion to supress. The new date is set for February 19, 2008. TI is still under house arrest on a $3millon bond.
