The sad truth is that one of our favorite rappers, T.I., is about to serve a year-long jail sentence starting last month. Celebrities are real people too, and are capable of breaking the law. T.I. was arrested on assault weapon charges, and is paying for his actions, no matter how much we love him.

But for the same reasons we love him as a rapper, we love him as a human being. This week in ATL, T.I. could be found in the Georgia Supreme Court speaking to numerous high school kids, half of them serving juvenile detention sentences. T.I. is one humble dude and values education above all.
"You can see from me that nobody is too rich, too famous, too cool, too
good-looking or too young to make a mistake and pay a price for it...More
important than the mistake you make, though, is what you are able to take away
from that mistake. How can you use that mistake to ensure you will never make a
similar mistake again?"

The only way to become a better person is to reform oneself after living the hardships of the School of Hard Knocks. Education is of the utmost importance.
"Education is more important than any material thing you can have," said Harris,
who only has a high school diploma. "The things you do not have in your life,
the things you do not have in your possession, will be a reflection of the
things you have not learned."

The rap industry is cluttered by greedy thugs, misogynist alphamales, and fake pansies. What we need is a change; a rap industry of artists like our friends Kanye, T.I., Eminem, Asher Roth, Talib Kweli, Akon, etc., not an industry of loser wannabe celebs.

Think about it, take a second.
Matter fact, if you know who you are, keep it real and in the end you'll end up like a star.
