Black Mafia Family founder Big Meech has been good to T.I.
In 2012, Meech vouched for Tip's character and denied he was a snitch in a letter sent to the blog StraightFromTheA.
“There is no person in the Federal or State system that can say or saying that “T.I. Clifford Harris” snitched on them. I’m tired of people spraying his name when his plea deal and sentencing transcripts is ‘ONLINE.’ You pay $40 to get on ‘Pacer’ and you have access to all court documents on any person in the ‘UNITED STATES," Mech wrote.
The letter came from prison. In 2006, Meech plead guilty to charges of drug trafficking and money laundering and was sentenced to 30 years.
Yesterday, T.I. advocated for Mech's release and celebrated his wisdom in an IG post.
And now a word from my Patna... King Zippo Da Goat 🐐... FREE BIG MEECH!!!! We still Miss U Bro!!!! One of the most strategic minds & the biggest hearts I’ve ever encountered. True American Legend.✊🏽Remember when I told you I thought maybe you should slow down & cool off out here when we were both getting out da joint... u told me “Nah Tip,I knew what I signed up for... I dedicate my LIFE to da game!!!! If they on me,they on me...But I bet cash money that I BALL like a Dog til da day they come get me!!!!” Had to respect that. Then and NOW!!!! #salute
Do you think T.I. should call the leader of a fairly violent drug trafficking organization a "True American Legend?"
