HE BEAT THE SYSTEM
Oprah has taught us a lot. With money you can make a black man a real contender for president and you can give a hood nikka a chance to beat the system...
T.I., real name is Clifford Harris, is expected to be sentenced to 1,500 hours of community service talking to youth groups around the country, followed by about 12 months in prison.
The rapper was arrested last October for attempting to buy machine guns - paying for them with cash and without registering for them, as mandated by the law.
He was charged with possession of unregistered machine guns and silencers, as well as possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
He faced a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count.
T.I. initially pleaded not guilty, and has been under house arrest since he was released on $3 million bond October 26th.
A change-of-plea hearing is scheduled at 1:30 p.m. at the federal courthouse in Atlanta today.
