Here is what TI told BILLBOARD Magazine:
Will actually went as far as getting in touch with [attorney general] Eric Holder and the Obama administration trying to see if we could get some kind of release. He was very politely told that was not possible.
What the FREAK is Will Smith doing . . . trying to get OUR PRESIDENT caught up in rapper TI’s bullsh*t. We lost a LOT OF RESPECT for him after seeing this.
