Hip Hop News: Rapper T.I.’s Bail Denied For Atleast Another Week

Surrounded by record executives and 35 of his relatives, rapper T.I. entered a not guilty plea Friday to gun charges, but a federal judge said he won’t rule until next week on whether T.I. can remain free on a bail that could total $2 million in cash. After entering a not guilty plea to gun charges, U.S. Magistrate Judge Alan Baverman said he remained troubled about the behavior of rapper T.I., and said he will not rule until next week. T.I. bail about could total $2 million in cash. T.I.’s attorneys also suggested placing the rapper under 24-hour monitoring with drug exams during the bail period. But according to CNN, Judge Baverman said, “I haven’t heard enough. This is an extremely gifted and talented musician. He has been exceedingly generous and has reached out to the community with great generosity. At the same time and on the same day he was supposed to receive one of the most important awards in his career, he shows up armed to buy machine guns. I’m concerned about that dichotomy.” Baverman also said he is concerned that T.I. might be a flight risk and that he will rule on whether he will grant bail for Harris on October 26. T.I., 27, was arrested in a federal sting Saturday just hours before he was scheduled to perform at the BET Hip Hop Awards. His bodyguard-turned-informant delivered three machine guns and two silencers to the rapper, according to a Justice Department statement.
