Rapper T.I. sounded off on the George Zimmerman verdict in a recent interview.

T.I. took his hat off to the poise and class with which Trayvon Martin’s parents have carried themselves through this ordeal.

Because according to T.I., if it had been his son George Zimmerman would be dead.

Man, it was some bulls**t,” said T.I. “My hat goes off to the Martin family, because if it was me and my child, there wouldn’t have been no trial. I’d have been on trial. It would’ve been the trial of the father who killed the man who killed [his child]. That would have been my story. My hat goes off because [the Martin family] are much more clear and level-headed thinkers than [myself].” (News Radio)
