T.I.-ed up for a little while

It's rare that you hear about a Hip Hop star getting involved in guns, isn't it? Well this time one of the chappies has been got bang to right by the cozzers, and it's not some badass gangster rap hardcase, either. T.I., he of the Dead and Gone collaboration with Justin Timberlake, has been sentenced to a year in prison on federal weapons charges.

He got lucky mind you; he was initially facing a ten year sentence and a $250,000 fine per charge after he was caught attempting to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers in 2007, but he negotiated himself a plea deal with the plod last year. He has rather charitably been given between 30 and 60 days to report to prison, which is ample time to head to the Mexican border.
