Rapper T.I. was listening to the local radio station in his hometown of Atlanta, when he heard of a man who was going to jump off the 22 story building that the radio station was broadcasting from and asked if he could assist in the situation and eventually saved the day and the man’s life.
Rapper T.I. helped police convince a man who was contemplating suicide off a 22-story building not to end his life in Atlanta. When T.I. heard about the man on the roof of the building that houses radio station V103, he called into Ryan Cameron’s show to see if there was anything he could do. Ryan suggested he go down to the building.
According to tmz.com, when T.I. got there he met with police and recorded a video message which cops then played for the man on the roof. After the man saw T.I.’s video he agreed to step off the ledge and met T.I. in the lobby, where the two talked briefly.
Sources have revealed to TMZ what T.I. said in the video message:
“Nothing is that bad. Nothing in life is worth taking your life. I’m here to help you. Please come down to talk to me.”
