Both he and Tiny’s dad suffered from the disease
While he’s waiting to find out if he goes back to jail from his latest arrest, T.I. is trying to focus on a situation that faces others- Alzheimer’s disease.
He took part in an event over the weekend in which he helped raise money for a charity to promote research to fight the disease, which causes people to lose their memory.
The rapper says the fight against Alzheimer’s is personal for him and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle.
The charity will raise funds for disease research and possibly offer help to those who care for Alzheimer’s patients.
Meanwhile. T.I. faces the prospect of prison after his arrest last month on drug charges. He has a court date set for next week.
He remains on probation for his 2007 arrest and conviction on federal weapons charges.
