The rapper heard on the radio that a man was threatening to jump off a 22-story Atlanta skyscraper, and immediately rushed to the scene and offered to help the police. The man came down after T.I. offered him a few minutes of face-to-face time. "I told him it ain't that bad. It'll get better, to put the time and effort into making it better," the rapper said. "I just reminded him know that I know. It looks bad right now, but it can turn around." [AP]
