This One Time, T.I. Saved Scott Stapp’s Life

Julie Gerstein / October 4, 2012

Remember Scott Stapp, the lead singer of Creed and new tentative Mitt Romney supporter? Well, this one time, he almost died, but the rapper T.I. was there and saved him. No. Shit.

It seems Mr. Stapp had been drinking and drugging and had his arms wide open while hanging out on the balcony of a hotel. He climbed over the balcony railing and fell 40 feet, sustaining some major injuries. But who was there to help him up when he fell? No, not the “Touched By An Angel” lady, but rapper T.I. Stapp laid out there for two hours and then a “guardian angel showed up — the rapper T.I.”

“As I’m laying on the ledge, blood fell to [T.I.’s] feet and he looked up and he had an Alabama hat on and I said, ‘Roll tide,’” he recalled. “And then he looked at me and put two and two together and really saved my life.”

Whoa. Also? Apparently this is the second time T.I. has saved someone’s life? In 2010, he talked an Atlanta man down off a ledge.

Oh P.S., this is all a part of Stapp’s new book, Sinner’s Creed, which duh, I’m totally going to read. [Rap-Up.com]
