The rapper T.I. has been canned by the AXE deodorant company, following his recent legal woes.
Known to the courthouse crowd as Clifford Harris, the entertainer is heading back to prison following an arrest on a drug charge while on probation for a weapons charge.
AXE told the TMZ site simply, “We will no longer feature T.I. in our promotional campaign.”
He had signed with AXE earlier this year, but has been removed already from their web site.
In brighter news, of course, T.I. is credited with having talked a depressed young man off a ledge. The two reunited during a V-103 radio visit, during which T.I. waxed prophetic.
“All of the things we go through in life, they just prepare us for the next battle,” said the rapper and film star, who is headed back to prison soon to serve 11 more months.
