T.I. Performs The Much Needed Community Service Of Having His Own TV Show

Here is the Wikipedia entry concerning T.I.’s troubles with the law, and his upcoming prison sentence:

On October 13, 2007, federal authorities arrested T.I. four hours before the BET Hip-Hop Awards[35]. He was charged with two felonies — possession of three unregistered machine guns and two silencers, and possession of firearms by a convicted felon. The arrest was made in the parking lot of a downtown shopping center, which a witness identified as the Walgreens drug store at the corner of North and Piedmont Avenues. Harris was arrested after allegedly trying to purchase the guns from a “cooperating witness” with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. According to federal officials, the witness had been cooperating with authorities since Wednesday, when he was arrested on charges of trying to purchase guns from a federal agent. The witness had been working as Harris’ bodyguard since July, authorities said.[36][37] T.I. walked out of the Atlanta United States District Court after appearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Alan J. Baverman on October 26, 2007. Judge Alan J. Baverman required T.I. post a $3 million bond, $2 million in cash and $1 million in equity on property he owns. The rapper was required to remain at home except for medical appointments and court appearances. The only people allowed to live with him were his girlfriend and children. Visitors were required to be approved by the court. T.I.’s suppression hearing was originally stated for January 3, 2008; however, U.S. Magistrate Alan J. Baverman pushed back the suppression hearing until February 19, 2008. The performer later pleaded guilty to US federal weapons charges. He will serve a year in jail beginning in March 2009 after completing 1,000 hours of community service.[38]

Did you read it? Well then can you tell me where it says that completing 1,000 hours of community service as part of your sentence for the illegal purchase of machine guns with silencers must include A REALITY SHOW ON MTV?

Whoops. I’m pretty sure the title cards in this trailer are messed up. Here, I fixed them:

What Would You Do
If You Had One Last Chance At Redemption
Because On Your Way To An Awards Ceremony
You Decided To Make A Quick Stop
To Try And Buy Machine Guns With Silencers
Because You’re A Fucking Idiot
And You Only Had 45 Days Left
You Stupid, Stupid, Fucking Idiot

There we go.
