Harris was in Jackson Wednesday to talk to students at several schools. His message: Avoid making the mistakes that he once made.
T.I. acknowledged his criminal past but said if you want to be different, you must do things different. He served about seven months in prison in 2009 for trying to buy unregistered guns and silencers from undercover federal agents.
Mayor Tony Yarber, who presented the key to the city to Harris, said the rapper would have more of an impact on young people in encouraging them to stay away from crime
Happy Birthday T.I. and congrats on your success.
