Even though he is locked behind bars rapper T.I. found a way to do something positive for the families of 14 fellow inmates.
The Grand Hustle CEO sponsored a bus trip dubbed “To See A Love One,” allowing 46 family members who would not have been able to afford the trip otherwise, allowing them to see their loved ones over the Memorial Day weekend.
“I’ve been blessed to receive tons and tons of mail from my fans, family and friends, as well as get visits on a regular basis. Unfortunately some guys aren’t as fortunate,” T.I. told MTV via a statement. “There are a lot of good dudes in here that haven’t been able to see there loved ones in years. Their families can’t afford the trip so I wanted to help out.”
Tip has been locked up at Forrest City Correctional Facility in Forrest City, Arkansas since last November for violating his probation, following an arrest in Los Angeles when police found ecstacy on him during a routine traffic stop.
Sean Kingston has been transferred from the trauma unit to the intensive care unit at Jackson Memorial Hospital — where he is in critical condition, but has been stabilized … this according to his rep.
Kingston and a female friend were injured in Miami last night in a jet ski accident. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
Kingston’s rep tells us, “Sean’s family thanks everyone for their prayers and support during this time.”
