Most of you probably heard about this over the weekend, but just in case, rapper T.I. was arrested on federal charges for having his bodyguard purchase machine guns for him. TMZ reports:
Authorities say the bodyguard admitted to purchasing about nine firearms for T.I. in the past and about 17 firearms for other people in the musician’s posse on previous occasions. The bodyguard claims the rapper gave him cash to purchase the guns, because T.I., as a convicted felon, was not able to legally buy firearms. The bodyguard was arrested last week trying to buy several guns. After his arrest, the bodyguard agreed to cooperate with authorities.
T.I., how did it get to this? I told you we were cool. There’s no need to build up an arsenal. First off, puny weapons are no match for me. It says so on my business card. Second, it’s in the past, man. Water under the bridge. But now you went and got yourself arrested by the police. I’d pour a forty on the ground for you, but I kind of drank it all. Malt liquor is bubbly, yo. Like soda pop. Did I just say “yo” back there? Yup. It’s official: I am wasted.
