Following the aftermath of T.I.’s infamous weapons arrest in October 2007, he was charged with a slew of felony weapons charges — including possession of unregistered machine guns [and silencers] and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
The rapper eventually pleaded his way down to a year in prison … plus a slew of community service.
Due to his light sentence, there was widespread speculation that TIP may have co-operated with the Feds as an informant — he’s always denied this though.
Now, the ATL hip-hop star has a new supporter, who proclaims T.I. as no snitch. That supporter is certified himself, and he is incarcerated B.M.F. head, Big Meech.
In it, the former drug kingpin calls the rapper a “stand up dude” who has no record of being a snitch. In fact, Meech says if T.I. was an informant, there would be records to prove it. But, these records do not exist.
Below is the letter in its entirety (via StraightFromTheA.com):
I must get straight to the point because I personally have a problem with people assassinating a real stand up dude character, namely T.I., talking about he a “SNITCH” when we are living in the information era and there is absolutely no public record of this man being a “SNITCH.”
There is no person in the Federal or State system that can say or saying that “T.I. Clifford Harris” snitched on them.
I’m tired of people spraying his name when his plea deal and sentencing transcripts is “ONLINE.” You pay $40 to get on “Pacer” and you have access to all court documents on any person in the “UNITED STATES.”
They also show you any motions or appeals that’s filed within a 48 hour period. The government would never hide the fact that T.I. is a snitch because they would want the world to know that they broke him like they broke Sammy the Bull, Nicky Barnes, Rayful Edmunds, Alpo, and Frank Lucas, who snitched on his own family members.
As far as the Ohio incident in which his friend Philant got killed, Tip was subpoenaed to court and only said a van pulled alongside and started shooting. He DID NOT see the shooter or who was shooting. From my understanding, the shooters own brother snitched on HIM.
To sum it up, I put me… “THE REAL BIG MEECH” and the whole “B.M.F.” family life on the line that “T.I. Clifford Harris” is a “100% Solid Authentic Dude.”

With respect n’ much love,
