hollywoodnews.com: Looks like being stuck behind bars hasn’t slowed down T.I.—the rapper coordinated his resources to help 46 family members of 14 fellow inmates be able to afford the trip to see them. Chartering a bus that departed from Atlanta on Saturday, the overnight trip to the Forrest City Correctional Facility in Forrest City, Arkansas, and let family members stay in Arkansas for two full days until its Monday return.

Said the rapper in a statement exclusively obtained by MTV News, “I’ve been blessed to receive tons and tons of mail from my fans, family and friends, as well as get visits on a regular basis. Unfortunately some guys aren’t as fortunate. There are a lot of good dudes in here that haven’t been able to see there loved ones in years. Their families can’t afford the trip so I wanted to help out.”
