Although being behind bars at the Forrest City Correctional Facility in Forrest City, Arkansas , T.I. found a special way to celebrate this holiday weekend. He sponsored a bus trip to bus 46 family members of 14 fellow inmates in the prison. The trip was called ”To See a Love One,” where the family members boarded a chartered bus in ATL and Alabama to visit the prison Saturday & Sunday.
He told MTV News:
“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. said in a statement obtained by MTV News. “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.”
That was really nice of him.
