While behind bars, my homie TI manages to exude the giving person that he has always been. He made the dreams of 14 inmates dreams come true. T.I. sponsored a bus trip for 46 family members to visit 14 inmates serving time alongside him at the Forrest City Correctional Facility in Forrest City, Arkansas.
“I’ve been blessed to receive tons and tons of mail from my fans, family and friends, as well as get visits on a regular basis. Unfortunately some guys aren’t as fortunate,” T.I. told MTV News in a statement. “There are a lot of good dudes in here that haven’t been able to see there loved ones in years. Their families can’t afford the trip so I wanted to help out.”

Since arriving on the scene in 2009, socialite Sheneka Adamâ€™s has enjoyed major successes and minor setbacks. From winning the 2011 KING Magazine â€œWeb Girl of the Yearâ€ Award to unauthorized releases of sex tapes, there is no doubt that Sheneka has not only increased her popularity, but stirred up her share of controversy. In efforts to address recent allegations, Sheneka is submitting a statement to clear recent rumors circulating online and give some insight about her upcoming projects.
â€œRegarding the recent allegations connecting me to Backpage.com posted by Mediatakeout.com, it should be noted that I have never had any affiliation with the website or anyone representing the site. In addition, last week I regretfully addressed a sex tape which a former acquaintance released virally. While I do regret the tape was made public, please believe that the tape was of a private nature shared between myself and someone I was in a romantic relationship with at the time. It was sad, hurtful and upsetting to not only me, but to my family, that someone would take something so private and publish without my consent.â€
â€œI am sure it is safe to say that when growing up, most people have made dumb and even questionable decisionsâ€¦however, as we get older, we learn from our bad decisions. I haveâ€¦ and now I am ready to move on with my life and plans.â€
