The good deed: Talked a suicidal man off a ledge
In 2010, T.I. talked a suicidal man out of jumping off the top of a 22-story Atlanta building. "Something in my heart just said, 'You need to help,'" the rapper told PEOPLE after hearing about the man on the local radio station. T.I. videotaped a message to the distraught man, saying, "Nothing is that bad. Nothing in life is worth taking your life. I'm here to help you. Please come down to talk to me." The man came down and had a "heart to heart" with the artist.
