T.I.'s VH1 "Behind The Music" Full Episode Stream

UPDATE: T.I. reflects on his time behind bars, career and future in his special.

In an advance clip from his upcoming episode of VH1's "Behind the Music," T.I. recalls his time behind bars, stating that he had to shift his mindset to prepare for his bid. The clip, one of the several added to the update of his 2009 episode, shows Tip explaining how he predictably wasn't happy in jail.

"I don’t think I have to sell the fact that prison sucks,” he said. “When you have your liberties and the loves of your life taken away from you, it puts a lot of things in perspective.”

His wife, Tameka , said that they were constantly in contact and that her husband couldn't wait to get out of the clink. "We talked every day and he would let me know 'I got so and so many days' and he was counting down," she said. "I guess that he felt that what didn't kill him made him stronger."

For T.I., his variety of personalities allowed him to navigate circles in prison and that he used that to his advantage. "That time was a lot more difficult for me. It was a lot more mental adjusting. I approached prison as a normal guy, everybody treated me as a normal guy," he noted. "I am a man of many different personalities. I can be real laidback in a calm setting and I can turn up when it's time to. That allows me to travel within many different circles. It was no different in prison."

T.I.'s episode of VH1's "Behind the Music" airs tonight at 10 p.m. EST. Watch the clip below (via EW.com).

    for those of you saying he snitched, were you there? nope. Did you read it on wikipedia? idiots. This dude didnt shoot someone, he wasnt selling guns, or drugs. He bought guns and was a felon, but they saw an opportunity to take a public figure and make something positive out of it. Everyone wants to discredit him cause he didnt do hard time. Fuck hard time. if thats how you think then go jump off a cliff since you are everything thats wrong with our society. Everyone has to "keep it real" now a days. pathetic.

      So what you're saying is it's better to stay locked up fighting off dudes who want to ass fuck you, and eating stale beans than to snitch and get out sooner? T.I. may have been stupid to try and buy illegal guns, but at least he was smart enough to know he had a family to think about and if he follows the so called "g code", he would have probably been away for many years.

      So what's your point? Anytime in prison is too long. Doesn't matter how long your in. What matters is what you've left behind when your gone. If he did 10-12 would you be swinging off his sac? GTFOH jackass
