T.I. had a sit down recently with Larry King to speak about the details surrounding his arrest and what it means for his future. In the interview, T.I. explains why he felt the need for the high-powered weapons. His best friend and personal assistant, Philant Johnson, was killed in Cincinnati during a shootout that followed one of his performances. "The guns that were used that night are some of the same guns I was attempting to purchase," he told King. "At the time, I never took into consideration the legalities, I only took into consideration the safety of my life and my family’s life." Guns and drugs are part of his past life said the Grammy-award winning rapper. "This is the most severe encounter with the law I have ever experienced," he said.
