T.I. Helps Talk Jumper Off the Ledge

by at . Comments

Oft-troubled rapper T.I. may have put lives at risk with his love of weapons, and again potentially by driving on sizzurp, but he helped save one yesterday.

The star helped talk a suicidal man off the ledge of a 22-story building in Atlanta, Ga., after listening to Ryan Cameron's Radio Show on V103 in that city.

Handsome T.I.

T.I. heard about the situation - who was on top of the building where the show is based - and called to see if there was anything he could do to help out.

Thanks to none other than T.I., a troubled Atlanta man is alright.

T.I. rolled over to the building, met with police on the scene and recorded a heartfelt video message which officials then played for the man on the roof.

Apparently, he said in the video message: "Nothing is that bad. Nothing is worth taking your life. I'm here to help you. Please come down to talk to me."

After the man saw T.I.'s video, he agreed to step off the ledge ... and met T.I. in the lobby, where the two were able to talk things out. Pretty amazing.

Cops informed the radio station they will not be pressing charges against the man. Read more about the incident and T.I.'s involvement at V103's site.


It's a nice, refreshing change of pace to see a celeb in the news for something good. Considering it's a rapper, who most of the time ends up with a bad rap, it's really nice to see them on the good side of the news. And in the wake of the teen suicides, it touches my heart. T.I.'s a hero, pure and simple.


Thank You for helping him TI!! It is really inspiring to see a celeb finally doing a good thing and certainly turning your life around. You mean more than you could ever know to that man and his family. You are really amazing. Thank you for giving him a chance to recover and having a heart to heart with him. You are amazing in every way!


Good for him! I know he has had a lot of trouble in the past and he has made his share of mistakes but this is proof that bad decisions do not make you a bad person! I hope this trend continues and he has learned something from this experience and is a changed man! I wish the best to TI and his family and I hope that whatever brought the man he helped to such a desperate situations can be healed and he too and can change the way he spends his life!! I love seeing celebrities use their status to do good instead of using to get away with things and set a bad example as they so frequently do! I light a recent events (the sucide of several homosexual teenagers who felt as though people discriminated against their love) I think it is incredibly important that EVERYONE takes TI's advice that nothing in life is bad enough to end you life over
