T.I. Explains How Will Smith Offered To Reach Out To Obama To Pardon T.I.’s Legal Troubles
Will Smith offered to reach out to President Obama for a pardon in T.I.’s behalf. T.I. Has been buried in legal issues but his career is still affected by his back-to-back prison sentences.
In a recent interview with Peter Bailey’s “NiteCap,” T.I. Revealed how Will Smith offered to help him. Will Smith wanted to reach out to President Barack Obama to give T.I. pardon following his probation violation case.
T.I. was moved by Will Smith’s offer of service, but T.I. Ended up serving his time.
“I didn’t reach out to Will Smith for a Presidential pardon; we were just in conversation just speaking,” he recalled. “We got the same birthday, and everyday on our birthday we speak on the phone just to say, ‘What’s up, how’re you doing, what’s going on?’ That year on our birthday, I was just going through that probation situation, so when he had me on the phone, I was like, ‘Dude, it’s tight right now.’ His first thing was, ‘How can I help?’ and I said, ‘Bruh, it’s got to come from the top.’ He was like, ‘Oh yeah? I can reach up there to the President.’ I was like, ‘Man, I don’t even know. Don’t put yourself out the way – it’s a long shot’…at that point, he connected with my attorneys and took a shot.”Photo credit: thisis50.com
