T.I. helps save a life
T.I. had a few bad years, going in and out of prison, but he's made a vow to change and so far he's sticking to it. Now the rapper and actor can add lifesaver to his resume as it was recently announced he helped save the life of another musician.
BET reports Scott Stapp, frontman for the rock band Creed, credits T.I. with saving him from a suicide attempt in his new memoir, "Sinner's Creed." Stapp had been on a drinking and drug binge at a hotel in Miami when he decided to climb over the balcony in his room and jump off the 40-foot ledge to end his life.
According to the memoir, he lay there for more than two hours, bleeding and half conscious until a man, who turned out to be T.I., found him there and called for help.
"A guardian angel showed up and it was the rapper T.I.," Stapp said in an interview about the memoir with VH1. "He immediately took care of the situation and saved my life."
RapUp.com reports T.I. had met Stapp a few years back as both artists worked on recording songs inspired by "The Passion of the Christ" film. More surprisingly, this isn't the first time T.I. has prevented a suicide. The rapper helped talk a man off of a ledge in Atlanta back in 2010.
