T.I. is doing good from behind bars. The incarcerated rapper, who is currently serving an 11-month sentence for violating his probation, sponsored a bus trip for 46 family members to visit 14 inmates serving time alongside him at the Forrest City Correctional Facility in Forrest City, Arkansas.
“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 News in 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.”
The bus trips, titled “To See a Love One,” occurred yesterday and today. Family and friends boarded the bus in Atlanta and Alabama on Saturday.
