An officer covering the scene also confirmed the existence of explosives.
“One of the occupants came out early this morning to start his car up,” officer Otis Redmond told media, “and noticed two suspicious bottles sitting on the front portion of the walkway.” (Fox 5)
However, Grand Hustle representatives have reportedly disputed the claims.

T.I.’s girlfriend, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle recently spoke on the jailed rapper and revealed their plans to officially tie the knot.
“Sometime [next] year, but we can’t really give a date yet because we have to find out exactly when Tip is coming home,” Tiny revealed in an interview. “We’ll have to just plan around that, but I envision a fairy tale wedding. [As far as music together,] well, we did one song and we just never really got back in the studio, but I can’t say that you won’t hear anything in the future. I don’t want to give it out yet, I want to hold it to make sure we go in that direction. We have several things that we’re talking about doing together, so we’ll see how that works out.” (XXL Mag)
No further details have been revealed as of now.
Tip is currently scheduled to be released from prison in 2010.
