T.I. To Plead Guilty
ATLANTA – Rapper T.I. was expected to plead guilty Thursday to federal weapons charges and will face prison time, according to two people familiar with his case.
The 27-year-old singer, whose real name is Clifford Harris, was expected to be sentenced to 1,500 hours of community service talking to youth groups around the country, followed by about 12 months in prison, according to two people familiar with the negotiations who spoke on condition of anonymity because the plea deal had not been finalized yet Thursday morning.

Well if that holds up, dude is getting off like a BANDIT. He was facing a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine for the two counts he was charged with. Tiny must be at home getting her Freakum Dress out the closet and cooking up a special night for Clifford before he gets sent up to the big house. Who are the “two people familiar with the negotiations”? Clifford KEEP some snitches, don’t he!?
Remy Ma: “I Did It, But It Was An Accident” — Changed Her Plea
Remy Ma’s attorney Ivan Fisher admitted in closing arguments Monday that her client did in fact shoot acquaintance Makeda Barnes-Joseph after accusing the woman of stealing money from her purse. But he says the whole thing was an accident.
Last July, Remy Ma and Barnes-Joseph were in the latter’s car when they argued over Remy’s missing cash, which totaled around $3,000. In a struggle over Barnes-Joseph’s purse, Fisher says their hands hit the rearview mirror and the gun then went off, accidentally. “There is no other explanation for why Remy Smith would have chosen that unique moment in time to shoot her,” Fisher said.
The admission contradicts Fisher’s opening remarks when he attempted to characterize Barnes-Joseph as a groupie who was misrepresenting the nature of the events in order to win money. (Source)
*Insert Law & Order sound effect here*.
I think Remy Ma is going up. The sheer niggardry of her story mixed with the fact that she even had a gun with hollow point bullets means she is going up. She should just came out and told the truth in the first place! “OK, yeah, I shot the trick on accident. I was waving da fo-fo to get her attention and it went off!” Oh no, she screaming “I DIDN’T SHOOT MY FRIEND!”
She had a Terror Squad flashback and took it out on her “friend”. Remy is about to make a whole bunch of new friends in the joint. I wonder are they gonna give her a reality show like they did Lil’ Kim?!
I would say homegirl that got shot was about to get paid, but I don’t think Remy Ma is worth that CD’s that she presses up even.
