Rapper T.I. Begins Filming MTV Reality Show
Bad boy rapper T.I., 27, is turning his legal woes into--surprise, surprise--a reality TV series for MTV, his rep has confirmed to PEOPLE.
The as-of-yet untitled eight-episode series, which has already begun filming but has no airdate yet, will chronicle the star's daily life as he completes more than 1,000 hours of community service before reporting to jail in March 2009 to serve a year-long sentence on weapons charges, his rep told PEOPLE.
T.I. has said of the eye-opening series, which will also follow the rapper through the Aug. 12 release of his album Paper Trails, “Hopefully the mistakes I’ve made will be a lesson to today’s youth and they won’t go down that same path.” -- Tiffany McGee
