T.I. Helps Stop A Suicidal Jumper
Ryan Cameron enlists T.I.’s help to prevent a suicidal man from leaping off a downtown Atlanta building.
In the midst of possibly facing a return to jail for his September drug possession charges, T.I. reportedly helped persuade a suicidal jumper to avoid leaping from the top of a radio station’s building. TMZ reports that Tip called V-103 on-air personality Ryan Cameron after hearing about a jumper atop the building where Cameron’s radio show is hosted. Cameron suggested T.I. head over, where the rapper recorded a heartfelt video message that authorities played for the man atop the roof. After being talked down T.I. also met with the man, who will not face charges from V-103.
