T.I. recently held a welcome home party since he was released from prison. The New York Daily News reported on T.I.’s event, where Diddy, Amber Rose, Rick Ross, Jamie Foxx, and more attended. Check out their report on the event below:

T.I.’s welcome-home party was nothing short of epic – the infamous rapper was feted by the likes of Jamie Foxx, Usher, and Diddy at L.A. hot spot Guys and Dolls on Sunday night, and the evening turned into a toast to the singer’s future.

‘The past is the past – what we have is the future, and your future is bright, my friend,’ Foxx said at the event, alluding to the 10 months T.I. spent in jail for ­illegal weapons possession.


Others on hand to welcome T.I. back on the scene included Lil Kim, rapper Rick Ross, and Amber Rose, who arrived sans Kanye West and almost sans clothing – she wore nothing but a nude leotard.

But it wasn’t until Foxx and T.I. performed their new track, ‘Winner,’ that the man of the hour finally addressed the crowd, calling life behind bars a ‘humbling experience.’

‘I’m so happy to be with all of you tonight,’ he said. ‘And I cannot thank you enough for being here.’

‘Everyone gave him a standing ovation,’ says one partygoer. ‘It was a very supportive environment.’


Not just for T.I.: The rapper took some of the spotlight off himself when he asked the room to acknowledge another wayward star.

‘There are still people in the hip-hop community that need our support,’ he said. ‘So I ask everybody to please raise your glasses for Lil Wayne.’

T.I. is certainly familiar with Wayne’s plight: Weezy is currently serving a year in the big house for – wait for it – illegal weapons possession.

But the mention of his penned-up pal didn’t sour T.I.’s mood for long. He jumped back up on stage later in the night to perform ‘Hello Good Morning’ with Diddy, and then his solo ‘I’m Back.’
