REVIEW: 'T.I.'s Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go'
On the face of it, "T.I.'s Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go" seems like the ultimate PR move. Arrested last year on federal weapons charges, rap artist T.I. (born Clifford Harris) reduced his sentence from a possible 30 years to an expected one year by agreeing to house arrest and logging 1,000 hours of community service. Much of that service was working with high-risk kids, which is, conveniently, also the theme of "Road to Redemption." Counting down the days to his incarceration -- "45" will change to "44," and so on -- T.I. attempts to scare straight a handful of these youngsters.
