We were angry about our student loans before; we’re furious now that T.I. says prison is making him smarter. And we’re over here getting our master’s degree, like a chump! “The longer I sit, the smarter I get,” the rapper wrote in a letter posted to T.I.’s website. Despite the whole jail thing, T.I. is starting to look like a brainiac to us. Not only is he releasing an album while incarcerated, he also snagged such monster guests as Kanye West, Kid Cudi and Christina Aguilera. Says T.I.,”It does’nt [sic] matter how long it’ll be before the next time you see me. What matters is that I’ll be a better man before that time comes.” As of now T.I. has only served 2 of his 11-month sentence. So think what a genius he’ll be by next summer!
Not that jail time has been easy, of course. In response to his fans’ well-wishes, T.I. asks, “How do you tell God Almighty that all you wanna do is LIVE LIFE ??? What if all you wanna do is be a father to your kids, a husband to your wife, and son to your mother.” We guess…don’t carry around drugs? Or illegal guns? Or violate your probation for said guns by possessing drugs? Really, any of those seem like an excellent place to start. [Photo: Getty Images]
