Not only is T.I. facing jail time for possibly violating his probation, but the consequences don’t end there. The emcee, who nabbed an AXE endorsement earlier this year, may lose his sponsorship from the company following his recent arrest for felony drug possession. A rep for AXE tells TMZ that the company was “troubled by [T.I.’s] arrest” and will be “reviewing our promotional activities.”
His professional relationship with the corporation came to fruition after T.I. promised to clean up his act after serving a bid for weapons possession. The company even enlisted him as its launch artist for their “One Night Only” concert series in NYC, which saw contemporaries such as Mary J. Blige, Keri Hilson and B.o.B joining the King of the South on stage. Tip is still featured on the AXE website, but it’s company may not have his back any longer.
