Eminem Supported T.I. In Prison

T.I. at Fuse Studios

Want to hear a heartwarming story of friendship? In an interview with MTV News, [lastfm]T.I.[/lastfm] accounts how fellow rapper [lastfm]Eminem[/lastfm] reached out to him while he was in prison.

T.I. explains,

My management reached out to his management, just in hopes of getting him on a record. Em personally reached out to me, and we been speaking ever since, especially since I went through my situation [with having to go to prison]. [He would] just kinda remind me that ‘I’ve been through dark period in my life too. You’re gonna make it. You’re one of the ones we need, so you’re gonna make it. Stand tall and walk the walk.’ He just made it a point to always reassure me of the spot that I hold in this thing that we got called hip-hop. It was incredibly helpful. It was incredibly noble of him, in my eyes, to even take the time out to reach out to me.

T.I. and Eminem have been good friends since 2007, when T.I. first approached Em about collaborating on his T.I. vs. Tip album. The two plan on recording a new song for T.I.‘s King Uncaged LP expected to drop on August 17th. Sounds like a pretty great bromance to us!
