Mark another achievement on for T.I.: On Wednesday, September 24, 2014, the Hustle Gang leader received the key to the city of Jackson after encouraging crowds of students at several schools to get as much education as they can. Harris’ message: Avoid making the mistakes that he once made. He saluted students at Forest Hill High School and told them that going to school “isn’t just wasted hours but an investment in your future.” According to The Clarion-Ledger, Mayor Tony Yarber presented the key to the city to Harris and said the rapper would have more of an impact on young people in encouraging them to stay away from crime. “Just knowing that I can use my experiences, just knowing that I can use my past — the good and bad — to help assist the future, the children, the teenagers, the young adults and the grown people who may have gone through some things and they can have an example showing just because I fell down don’t mean I have to stay down.
