TY for T.I.

It’s not often you hear nice things about rappers: Usually it’s all gun-toting this or drug-dealing that, misogyny this and bad example that. Of course, that’s often because many rappers are gun-toting, drug dealing misogynists, but for once we have a act of human kindness that you won’t hear anyone rhyme about.

Atlanta rapper T.I., who has been in a little bit of gun-related trouble of his own, apparently 'rushed' to save the life of a man who was threatening to jump off the roof of a local radio station, and managed to talk the man out of killing himself. He was later taken to hospital.

‘He came to the scene and offered to talk to him. We told the young man that, and he came down,’ said the wonderfully-named Officer James Polite. ‘He didn't have to stop. He could've kept on going about his business. We're happy it ended the way it did, and we thank him.’
