Rapper T.I. successfully convinced a suicidal man to step away from the edge of a towering skyscraper. The man, whose name has not been released, was on top of a 22-story Atlanta skyscraper. T.I. heard about the situation on the radio, and immediately drove down to the building where a crowd has gathered, where he volunteered to help police talk to the man in question. The man agreed to come down from the top of the building, in exchange for a few minutes with the famous rapper.  UsMagazine.com reports that T.I. later said about the incident:

“I told him it ain’t that bad. It’ll get better, to put the time and effort into making it better, I just reminded him … it looks bad right now, but it can turn around.”

The man was later taken to hospital. T.I. is due back in court this Friday – he was arrested last month for possession of drugs.
