T.I.’s ‘Beyond the Trail’ Trailer Surfaces Online
T.I.‘s personal videographer Brandon “BI” Robinson has revealed a sneak peak of the upcoming documentary ‘Beyond the Trail,’ which chronicles the events following T.I.’s 2008 weapons possession case.
The documentary, which has been written, edited and filmed by Robinson will also detail his own experiences working closely with T.I., after moving to Atlanta, in pursuit of a career in photography/videography.
In 2007, Tip — real name, Clifford Harris Jr. — was arrested for attempting to buy illegal machine guns and silencers in a Walgreens parking lot. In 2008, he plead guilty to federal weapons charges and served jail time, in addition to house arrest and 1, 500 hours of community service. But on November 1, 2010, T.I. began yet another sentence in an Arkansas prison for violating the parole terms stemming from his previous case. He and wife Tiny “Tameka” Cottle were arrested in Los Angeles after police found narcotics in their vehicle.
T.I. will be released from the Arkansas correctional institution on Sept. 21, 2011. His most recent album was December’s ‘No Mercy,’ which was released after he began his current sentence.
