As he prepares for his scheduled prison bid on March 27, T.I. is putting rumors of snitching to get a reduced sentence to bed as well. Accusations began in June of 2008, when 50 Cent took what many believed to be some subliminal shots at Tip on the Terminate on Sight cut "You So Tough" [click to read].
Speculation worsened after T.I. appeared in a Georgia Crime Stoppers commercial, on the heels of his testimony in the case against a man who killed his friend and personal assistant Philant Johnson [click to read].
In an exclusive interview with Vibe magazine, "The King" challenged anyone questioning how he managed to get such a light sentence despite being caught illegally buying weapons as a convicted felon [click to read].
"Ain't no such thing as a secret snitch," T.I. said. "If there was there'd be no need for the witness protection program. Pull up my agreement. It's public record. Ain't no way you could hide it, especially being a public figure. And as much as people saying that it is happening, don't you think somebody would have did the research to say, 'Okay look, we got proof, here it is?' People just know that it could have been a lot worse and they wanted it to be a lot worse, but lies will never overrule the truth."
