T.I.’s Penn State Concert Postponed Following Arrest
T.I.‘s recent drug arrest has resulted in yet another hiccup in his post-prison career. Tip was scheduled to perform at Pennsylvania State University on September 24, but the concert has been postponed indefinitely, due to his legal troubles.
Penn State officials originally announced the concert on September 1, just hours before T.I. and his wife Tiny were busted in Los Angeles on charges of drug possession. A manager from the university’s Bryce Jordan Center issued a statement confirming that the show’s postponement was due to T.I.’s recent arrest and ensuring ticket holders that they would be refunded. “T.I.’s management is hoping to reschedule this concert at a later date,” the statement read. “All ticket holders can get refunds for their tickets at the point of purchase. Credit Cards will be automatically refunded.”
Following T.I.’s arrest, popular grooming brand Axe announced that they were reviewing their new endorsement deal with the ATL rapper. If convicted on drug charges, T.I. will face jail time for violating his three-year probation sentence, stemming from his 2007 weapons possession case. After serving seven months in an Arkansas prison from May to December of 2009, T.I. was transferred to an Atlanta halfway house where he remained until March 2010. His post-prison endeavors have included heavy promotion for his upcoming album ‘King Uncaged,’ and an appearance in the summer film ‘Takers.’
