LOS ANGELES (AP) - T.I. is using his upcoming MTV reality show
to scare teens straight, and it's not part of the 1,000 hours of
community service he must complete before facing a prison sentence
The 28-year-old rapper told the Television Critics Association
on Friday that he's put in 864 hours so far. He said: "This show
is in addition to (that)."
T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, was sentenced to one
year in prison on federal weapons charges after he was arrested in
Atlanta in 2007 for allegedly trying to buy automatic weapons. The
show began filming in June and will continue to shoot until March.
"T.I's Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go" premieres Feb. 10.
