T.I.’s Speech at Hip Hop Inaugural Ball

T.I. is a good dude and it shows through every time he talks. I like what slim stands for. This was a serious part in this speech:

"I want to thank God for somehow … I know he perfect. So I thank him for
everything. I thank him for making me drop out of school. I thank him for making
me run the streets. I’mma thank him for making me sell crack. I’mma thank him
for making me have shoot-outs. I’mma thank him for allowing me to watch my
partners die in my arms so I’d be fearful enough for my life and paranoid enough
to go out and cop machine guns and silencers so I catch a fed case and I have to
put up $3 million for my bond so I have to spend seven months of my life in my
house, so I have to spend a year of my life in prison just so that I be
validated enough to get out there and touch the youth because they know that I
done been through it, and if I say it, it means something.”

I can really respect T.I. for getting out here after having lived the life he has and now decry it in favor of a more positive existence.
