Rapper T.I. dressed as former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick for Halloween.

T.I., recently released from prison after serving time on a probation violation stemming from a weapons charge, partied at the Gold Room. He was wearing the Philadelphia Eagles jersey now worn by Vick, who served time on charges he ran a dogfighting ring. T.I.’s wife, Tameka Tiny” Cottle, was dressed in a sexy “referee” getup.

Since his release T.I. has celebrated a different sort of release: of his new novel. Here’s a link to a story about it.

And here’s a link to a Halloween photo gallery posted on TMZ.

T.I., you are a lyrical Beast on the Mic. Keep your head up and stay positive. On the other hand, Tiny doesn’t need a costume for Halloween………have you seen her:-((

This story raises two major questions: What is a convicted felon recently released on strict, supervised probation doing hanging out at a sleazy club like the Gold Room? Why is the federal probation system allowing this type of behavior?

Why is it necessary to continue to say Vick served time for dogfighting every time his name is mentioned? This article wasnt even about Vick but yet we have to say it….I thought the article was about T.I. wearing a Vick Jersey for Halloween

Let me add something to you article, “Vick, who served time on charges of running a dogfighting ring, got paid after signing a $100 million contract with the Eagles. I (being Jennifer Brett) wish I could live such a life. Instead, I am writing worthless blogs for the AJC hoping that I can make a name for myself. I never really watched football before and don’t know who Mike Vick or T.I. are.”

For Halloween, I feel, we usually try to dress up like the person that we most admire. Mike Vike has made all the right changes to improve his life and decision making. T.I. should definelty follow suit and I feel that was the whole idea of him dressing up as Mike Vick. T.I wants change and Vick is definelty a great model for that type of change.

@rollow Mike Vick did not run the dogfighting ring, although he invested in it through troubled friends and family and as an NFL QB you don’t have the time to run anything except plays on offense (and he had trouble with that). Just like our American goverment and ecomomic officials, they aren’t breaking our middle to lower class and our youth, they are just investing in it(-:

I recall ConVick doing the same stupid thing and somebody getting shot at a club he was at shortly after his release from the big house. Living for the moment!
