T.I. is always known as the American rapper who has collaborated with several U.S. Hip Hop / R&B music talents like Justin Timberlake and Rihanna. At the same time, his kind heart also turns him to be a hero.
T.I.(real name: Clifford Harris) helped talk a man contemplating suicide off the ledge of a 22-story building yesterday. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution , the rapper was on his way to a video shoot when he heard that a man was threatening to jump off the 400 Colony Square Building. The building happened to be the home of the urban contemporary radio station V-103, and T.I. called radio personality Ryan Cameron. Cameron encouraged the rapper to come to the building to see if he could help persuade the man from jumping.
T.I. met with police and then recorded a video message that the police then showed to the man on the ledge. On the video, T.I. said, “Nothing is that bad. Nothing in life is worth taking your life. I’m here to help you. Please come down to talk to me.”
After watching the video, the man stepped back from the ledge, and later met with T.I. in the building’s lobby, where the two talked for a few minutes before the man was taken to Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment. The police were grateful. “[T.I.] didn’t have to stop. He could’ve kept on going about his business,” Atlanta police officer James Polite told the AJC. “We’re happy it ended the way it did, and we thank him.”
