T.I. Talked Down a Suicide Jumper

October 14th, 2010 // 26 Comments

Aw, Tip, you crazy for this one. The AP reports:

Police got unexpected help talking a suicidal man down from an Atlanta skyscraper when rapper T.I. showed up.
Officer James Polite says the hip-hop star joined the crowd outside the 22-story building Wednesday and told officers he wanted to help. Police said the man agreed to come down in exchange for a few minutes face-to-face with T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris.
T.I.’s publicist says the Atlanta native heard about the situation on the radio and drove to the building to help.

Wait. First, he’s fighting Alzheimer’s. Now, suicide jumpers? Jesus, I understand it’s embarrassing to get pulled over for purple drank, and not wanting to go back to jail, but damn, son, you ain’t gotta cure cancer out this bitch. That just leads to a co-dependent society where motherfuckers be expecting the Tip to solve all them problems. It’s like, “Yo, I don’t gotta buckle my seatbelt. T.I’s handing out brain doctors!” That’s a nanny state, cuz. Gestapos and shit.

      Word is that the ALLEGED Jumper was distraught after finding out Gavin Rossdale loves dick.

    weird that the dude was depressed enough to kill himself but was still desperate enough for the “good ol’ celebrity spotlight”! maybe he is gonna sell his autograph on ebay before he dies again

      Uh, am I the only one who knows that suicides are usually just a cry for attention? Especially jumpers! They go out to some public place to “kill themselves” and wait for the news crew to show up. Some of them jump because that’s what their source of attention is waiting for and some don’t jump because they got attention.

        …FINALLY! …a rapper SAVES a life!…quite ironic, I think, after so many have died BECAUSE of rappers and their “music”…

  3. weirdo is right

    why on earth would he care if TI was downstairs if he was depressed enough to end his life? smells like someone just wanted some attention and spotlight.. and that’s not jut TI im talkin about

    I wonder if TI used one of his unregistered, concealed weapons to talk the jumper down.

  7. alex

    I wonder if T.I. made him feel better by saying, “You can have whatever you likeeeeee…”

  8. Am I the only one who would have rather T.I. trade places with the jumper, and finish the job?

    What do you want to bet that T.I. set this whole thing up to garner favor with the judge a little later on? “I be heppin’ da public, an’ shit”

  13. Bow Down Assholes

    If he really wants to help society, he needs to bury his wife….alive…upside down….in cement…in an umarked grave….in a tar pit ….so we never have to be subjected to that kind of ugly again.

  14. It's Still TAB

    Does this count for “Community Service” for T.I.?

  15. Kijeblade

    Still, this is a good thing, right guys?

    SPOILER WARNING, SW! i don’t want to know TI’s real name.
    it’s like writting Sting’s real name without a warning…. NOT cool.
