T.I. may be a convicted felon who blew a second chance with a probation-violating arrest that nixed his early release, but the man is nothing if not inspirational.
"So here it is. NO MERCY, the most honest and intimate installment of my life story as promised," T.I. posted on his official site, which he somehow can update.
Says the embattled rapper: "Hope ya'll enjoy it and it lives up to the very high standards I've set for myself or anyone who's considered to be one of the best."
Humble as always. The self-adulation continues:
"I must admit it takes a lot to go through as much as I have and still keep the love in your heart and in your art. But at the end of the day, if that's what it takes to produce the music to keep the world of hip-hop evolving on its axis."
