T.I.’s recent prison sentence is now behind him, but the Atlanta rapper is still working overtime on his career after serving back-to-back sentences. In a recent interview withPeter Bailey’s “NiteCap,” Tip revealed that after violating his probation in 2010, Will Smith offered to help him get pardoned by the president.
According to Tip (via HipHopDx) Will Smith offered to reach out to President Obama, asking him for a pardon, during their yearly birthday call. (The “Fresh Prince” star and Tip happen to share the same birthday and call each other every year to catch up).
“I didn’t reach out to [Will Smith for a Presidential pardon]; we were just in conversation just speaking,” Tip explained. “We got the same birthday, and everyday on our birthday we speak on the phone just to say, ‘What’s up, how’re you doing, what’s going on?’”
