If you stumble upon an injured person and don’t NOT help, is this still categorized as “saving a life.” How about simply: “human decency?” No doubt Rapper T.I. was faced with a moral dilemma when he realized the injured man he stumbled upon was that tool from Creed.
However, that’s just our take, the real story actually sounds pretty sad.
Creed’s one-and-only Scott Stapp shared a very personal story during VHI’s Big Morning Buzz on Wednesday. In his new ‘memoir’ Sinner’s Creed, Scott opened up about a suicide attempt where he checked himself into a penthouse at Miami’s Delano Hotel and was in a “prison of alcohol and drug addiction. He jumped over his balcony and fell 40 feet, fracturing his skull and breaking his hip. After lying there for two-and-a-half hours, his “guardian angel” showed up.” (No no, not Touched by an Angel’s Roma Downey, but Rapper T.I.)
Scott goes on to say that the two met back in 2004 when theynwere both writing songs for The Passion of The Christ. … We’d talked about being fans of Alabama.”
Stapp didn’t reveal when the suicide attempt occurred, but said seeing him again was “ironic.” T.I. just happened to be in the hotel room directly below his and found him when “ blood fell to his feet and he looked up and he had an Alabama hat on.” Scott said, “Roll tide,” and then T.I. looked up at him and put two and two together. Scott said, “He really saved my life.”
Coincidentally, T.I. helped another suicidal man in 2010. After hearing on the radio about man who was threatening to jump from the 22nd floor of a building in Atlanta, he went to the scene to help police. “I told him it ain’t that bad. It’ll get better, to put the time and effort into making it better,” T.I. told the Associated Press. “I just reminded him … it looks bad right now, but it can turn around.”
