Hip Hop News: T.I. Looking For Guest Leniency For Thanksgiving Dinner

Hip Hop heavyweight T.I., who is under house arrest while he awaits trial for federal weapons charges, has asked a judge to let him host a Thanksgiving Day celebration at his Jonesboro home. T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., was arrested Oct. 13. Federal authorities allege the 27-year-old rapper tried to buy machine guns and silencers in a midtown Atlanta parking lot just blocks from the BET Hip-Hop Awards, which he was to headline later that night. He was released on a $3 million bond Oct. 26. As a condition of his release, T.I. lives in his Jonesboro residence with his girlfriend and children and isn’t allowed to have visitors without prior approval. He isn’t allowed to have more than three visitors at a time, with few exceptions. His lawyers asked Tuesday that a list of family members be granted “approved visitation to have dinner with the defendant” Nov. 22 between 9 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. The monitoring service that is supervising his release would be present.
