*Since T.I. has been out of jail, he has been on a mission to regain his fame, as he recently dropped the single, “I’m Back.” Though he’s on a new tip, no pun intended, of being a positive man, an example to the kids, he is still battling it out against those haters out there.

“What people don’t take into consideration is the reason that I was eligible for certain agreements that they weren’t eligible for was because I made myself a useful member of society,” he said in an interview.

The rapper struck a plea deal after pleading guilty to a weapons charge in 2008. He was sentenced to a year and a day along with $100,000 fine and 1,500 hours of community service.

“Most muthaf—as catch cases and get time. My n—a, you wasn’t doing sh–            when you was out here, so wasn’t no reason for them to keep you out here.” He also calls out those who supposedly “snitched.” “Please understand the G code that I learned from, if you speak out your mouth that a muthaf—a is telling on somebody and you can’t come with indisputable, irrefutable facts to support that statement, that makes you the sucker,” T.I. said. “You are now in violation of the G code. And there ain’t nobody, nowhere in naan jail sayin’ I was on they paperwork.”
