The Moment: In March 2004, a warrant was issued for T.I. in Georgia after he violated the probation he received following a 1997 drug conviction.
The Disappointment: T.I.'s career was just starting to take off at the time and the warrant really limited his ability to take it to the next level. He was sentenced to three years in prison.
How T.I. Overcame It: T.I. took matters into his own hands while in prison and decided to film an unauthorized music video in July 2004 that managed to get him some extra publicity. A month later, he was released into a work release program and got back on his grind.
