Kid Rock ‘Feels Bad’ for T.I.

Kid Rock and T.I.

T.I. returned to prison this week to serve an 11-month stint behind bars. His friend and collaborator Kid Rock is speaking out and sharing his compassion for the incarcerated rapper.

“It’s sad. He’s such a nice guy. It’s a tricky situation, but I feel bad for him,” the rocker told Entertainment Weekly. “I understand someone’s gotta learn their lesson, and I know they gave him a chance, but there’s a better way his time could be utilized to help other people, something to help the community.”

Tip was sent back to prison in Arkansas for violating his probation, but Rock doesn’t side with the legal system. “Some of these jail things, I don’t agree with them, especially when you got so much horrid shit going on in the world.”

Rock enlisted Tip and Martina McBride for “Care,” a song off his new album Born Free. The hip-hop star didn’t know who the country crooner was and vice versa. “I recorded them separately,” he said. “It’s funny, because Martina’s kids knew who T.I. was, but Martina obviously wasn’t that familiar with him. And T.I. didn’t have any clue who Martina was.”

A version of the song with Mary J. Blige in place of Martina previously leaked.

    I don’t feel bad for T.I i mean what is wrong with him? He’s always been ignorant and stubborn but I thought he changed. SMH i guess the new thing is go to jail so when you come back people will worship you like you died and came back to life.
