MTV Premieres "T.I.'s Road To Redemption"

After one of his most successful years, Tip eyes his upcoming jail time in an upcoming MTV documentary.

On February 10, MTV will premiere Atlanta rapper T.I.'s docu-series T.I.'s Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go, a series that will focus on the 45 days leading to T.I.'s March sentencing.

In 2007, T.I. was charged with two felonies after the rapper was caught attempting to purchase guns outside a shopping center [click to read]. As a result of the incident, T.I. was ordered to complete 1,000 hours of community service and serve a year in jail beginning in March.

T.I.'s Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go will focus on the Atlanta rapper's interaction with teenagers across the country as he shares with them the mistakes he's made in the past and the lessons he's learned.

"We visited T.I. early in 2008 while he was under house arrest in Georgia and found a man utterly unlike his rap persona," Ish Entertainment principals Stella Stolper and Michael Hirschorn said in a statement. "He felt that he was undergoing a karmic reckoning, a time when he would have to balance the scales of his life and integrate who he was with who he is. We've never seen someone so introspective, so smart about how who he was back in the slums of Atlanta is affecting who he is now."

T.I.'s Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go will also take a look at T.I.'s personal life which will include the birth of his sixth son and the September release of his sixth studio album Paper Trail [click to read].

As the 45 days until T.I.'s March sentencing dwindle away so will the rolling title of the docu-series which will change as the number of days decreases.

T.I.'s Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go will air on Tuesday, February 10 at 9 p.m. on MTV.
