The artist, born Clifford Harris, Jr., was sentenced to a year in prison after pleading guilty to federal weapons charges. During the special, he discusses his best friend's murder in 2006 and explains how being a celebrity has its drawbacks and "ignites a certain paranoia."
"Every one knew me and I knew no one ... you can't tell if a person is a fan or not until the (car) window winds down," he says during the program.
Claiming a new understanding for life and its meaning, T.I. delivers a strong message about decision-making to a group of at-risk students and reveals his thoughts about going back to jail and his career's future.
"I must be a man and stand up and accept responsibility," he says. "I exercised extremely poor judgment, and for that, I must be willing to pay whatever price that comes before me."
