T.I. Opens Up To Larry King
The rap star talks about the reason behind his incarceration...
RapperT.I. recently appeared on Larry King Live and discussed his much talked about 2007 arrest on a federal gun charge - and what the future holds for his career.
The Dead And Gone hit-maker claimed that he felt the need to carry a weapon after his best friend and personal assistant, Philant Johnson, was killed in a shootout in Cincinnati following a performance.
He told Larry King: "The guns that were used that night are some of the same guns I was attempting to purchase. At the time, I never took into consideration the legalities, I only took into consideration the safety of my life and my family's life. This is the most severe encounter with the law I have ever experienced.”
