T.I. Helps Rescue Suicidal Jumper

Although T.I.’s due in court this Friday to deal with his own legal drama, he took some time this afternoon to assist the authorities in rescuing a man who was threatening to jump off a downtown Atlanta building. Call me skeptical but this shit is crazy. TMZ has the details:

It all went down earlier this afternoon — when cops responded to a 911 call about a man who was threatening to jump off a building in downtown Atlanta … the same building where the Ryan Cameron Radio Show is based.

We’re told T.I. heard about the jumper on the radio — and called Ryan Cameron to see if there was anything he could do to help out with the situation.

Ryan Cameron tells us … he told T.I. to roll over to the building, where the rapper met with police and recorded a heartfelt video message which cops then played for the man on the roof.

We’re told 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.

UPDATE: T.I. Speaks On Rescue

    WHY THE HELL would the police let a nigga who is going to jail handle the situation?! LMAO this shit dont make sense, the police let random ass TI into the area to negotiate with him? Why not a nigga who actually has a DEGREE to do that sorta thing, or papers that say he can do that sorta thing. Not TI lmao this shit dont add up. Thats let me letting Ashy Larry from Dave Chappelle try to convince a nigga to stop smoking crack. Come on son! (Eminem voice)

  • Belize

    I’m takin this as a grain of salt for now…
    But if this really did happen…
    Props to Tip. Something good always comes outta summin bad.

  • belly

    Guess young dro couldnt take another bid for tip

  • jacob

    The police didnt call him, they just lit up the TI symbol across the alanta sky. Every crime he solves gets him a month of his next prison sentence,

  • Mr. 3-Times

    TI is definately looking for some good Karma. Careful though, doing something good for the karmic results can backfire on you. Doing something for good karma isn’t really “good” in the first place it’s actually a selfish act disguised as a good deed.

    What’s next, we hear about Tip saving some drowning kid at the local YMCA where the news crews just so happened to be already set up there with there cameras rolling?

    This shit is too funny.

  • D-manded

    lol nigga probly turned his gas on n went to bed soon he realised T.I aint gonna do music with him

  • Jerz

    I heard T.I. is going to Chile to rescue the last miner in the mines. That should take off at least a month on that prison sentence.

  • Yessir

    The police didnt call him, they just lit up the TI symbol across the alanta sky. Every crime he solves gets him a month of his next prison sentence,

    The REAL Tip

    Dear Clifford/TIP/TI–

    All your dumb ass did is convince that you are tweakin for real. Did you really think this shit would work? Oh so this is your latest installment of Road to Redemption? Save the heroics for Chile. Cause right now you looking like the only Stunt Queen. So please call your boo and tell him Daddy’s Home…

    In closing, from the Notorious One( RIP) :
    “Niggaz is actors, niggaz deserve Oscars”

  • Your Father

    Am I the only one imagining TI rushing to the scene while “Help Is Coming” of off TI Vs. TIP plays in the background, on some superhero shit. LMAO.
    Good on him if this is genuine, though.

  • Shzntt

    you failed T. I. “you said you was king you lied through your teeth instead of gettin crowned you gettin capped”

    T.I. who will you sacrifice?

  • Truth

    Dang My bad. I didnt know you all were there and saw wat happened -_-

  • SkidaRoc

    We don’t believe you need more people.

  • Red

    haha they set it up to get points before court just like the t.i. help the kids campaigne but fuck it i aint hating haha kill yo self is not recommended

  • isis

    I’m just gonna say this. It seems a bit sus and stuntastic. Glad to see that person was not hurt .BUT honestly the only person I want TIP to save right now is himself….

  • d

    W

  • t D o T H i p P Y

    You gotta be kidding me right, and i thought i seen it all. I label this sus as hell because there is no way a international rap star like T.I. should even have the time to be listening to no damn radio and secondly this dude is not a negotiator i don’t think they let just anybody involve themselves in this kind of shit. With 2 days before court this happens, this ninja must be real scared of the pokey.

  • Lashe’a

    man if now what im saying like for real he did this apon him self to help someone out yall need to stop say negtive stuff we now about him . :) !!!1@

  • Lioness

    mkay….BS

  • LeftNutOfJeezy

    If you can’t see that this was staged for publicity, you are truly an idiot.

    Damn… That’s a desperate PR team… I gotta better idea… Just tell him not to drive around with fucking guns an drugs… I’m just sayin…
