The recently-jailed rapper T.I. just posted a statement on his official site, calling life inside a federal prison in Arkansas "truly a pain I have never felt before."
In the first month of an 11-month sentence for violating probation, he says bluntly, "I don't know what effect this will have on my life moving forward."
But ... "I'm certainly sick and mother f*cking tired of going to jail, juve, prison, the pen, correctional facilities or whatever else you want to call it."
T.I. is not loving life these days.
T.I., who stepped up to help a suicidal man last month, admits his faults and says he's finally realized what he needs to do to become a better person, saying:
"At one time I thought my motivation for continuing was for my fans, my partna Philant, my pops, my grandmama, even for the haters or people I let down."
"But nah... I got to do this sh*t for me!!! I'll be God damned if I've come all this way and made it through so much hell to let it go down like this! F*ck that!"
