A Message From T.I. (Pt. 2)

A second and final message from the incarcerated King:

What up world? This will be my last message from Forrest City. Just reaching out and sending my love, respect and appreciation to all who have been ridin’ with me throughout this chapter in my life and not just recently but since all the things started happening one after another back in ’06. From Big Phil’s murder to my beautiful little angel Leiah being called home to heaven, to my arrest in ’07, the 1st prison sentence in ’09, to this last journey that I’m nearing the end of. A lot of people who are aware of all that has happened to me in my life say that there aren’t many men who could have endured and withstood so much pain, pressure and turmoil while managing to remain sane and keep their wits about them. I must say that I wouldn’t have been able to do so without God’s grace and having a strong support system behind me every step of the way. So often we spend time acknowledging the presence of “haters” and all the negativity they send our way but we don’t take the time to acknowledge and appreciate all the ones who love and support us and supply us with the positive energy we need to overcome. We complain about the pain so much that we don’t even notice how much stronger, wiser and better of a person the suffering has allowed us to become. I heard Pac say once “To live is to suffer and to survive is to find meaning in that suffering.” I later found out it came from an author by the name of Friedrich Nietzsche. When I heard Pac say that it was just some hard shit to hear your favorite rapper say before he kicked a verse. Now that I’ve gone through it and grown from it those words have a real true meaning to me. I know this won’t be my last battle with adversity but it has truly prepared me for whatever else may come in the future. For that also I’m thankful. Now it goes without saying that I hate I had to come back to prison for these 10 months but I am truly grateful for the knowledge, growth and understanding I’ve received from the experience.

Next time you hear from me I’ll be back out there with you. Doing for those who can’t do for themselves and speaking for those whose voices are never heard. When I touch down, I’m going all the way back to square one, like I’m fresh in the game and never sold a record. Back on some I’M SERIOUS, TRAP MUZIK shit… But until then RESPECT to all who deserve it. I’ll be back at you in a minute.

– KING

Regarding that last part, eskay pretty much summed up Tip’s options after the first letter.

    But the imagery is what allows Ross verses to pull you in.

    “‘But yous a scary dude, believed by very few, just keep it very cool, or we will bury yooou’”

    Flip never recovered from this.

    ^So you sayin Ross only got one flow?
    Im not that deep into his music I only know the shit they play in the club/radio etc. But to deny his street hit making ability that cant be denied. The nigga got his foot on everbody neck as far as them street bangers. He take it overboard wit The Fantasies actually put Jeezy out of business if you think about it.
    As for TIP…he just has more crossover appeal and he can get them YTs to rock wit his shit Timberlake features etc, wheras ross cant @ least not yet.

    Sales is no comparison Ricky aint went plat yet iont think
