Here to present the award for Top Rap Song, it's @Tip! #BBMAs pic.twitter.com/ypnNZhTB5I— Billboard Music Awards (@BBMAs) May 21, 2018
T.I. was arrested entering his own gated community earlier this week, after a security guard on the premises called the police on him and a friend. T.I. reportedly plans to file a lawsuit against his homeowner's association. But before then, he cracked a joke about the arrest during his first public appearance since his arrest.
While presenting the award for Top Rap Song at the Billboard Music Awards, T.I. scratched his head. "Jeesh. Good thing they let me in here tonight," he said while laughing. He then went forward with presenting the award. Watch the fully speech above.
