Though T.I. has recently been on the wrong side of the law, he worked with police in Atlanta to prevent a man from jumping off a ledge of the 22-story building.

TMZ has the scoop:
Ryan Cameron tells us … he told T.I. to roll over to the building, where the rapper met with police and recorded a heartfelt video message which cops then played for the man on the roof.
