Rapper T.I. saved Scott Stapp's life offering him a joint

We've heard the story of T.I. saving Scott Stapp's life in Miami, when Stapp attempted to jump off a balcony several years ago

TIP doesn't talk about it much, but detailed it in a recent interview.with GQ Magazine.

"I was outside in Miami, at the Shore Club, and I was stepping outside my balcony, about to fire up my blunt, me and my partner Big Phil," T.I. says. "I just heard moaning and groaning from up on top of the roof area. I'm looking at Phil and I'm like, 'Are you hungry?' I thought it was his stomach because Phil was always hungry. And he was like, 'Man, that ain't me.' And we continue to smoke, and then [moaning sound]. So I step out and look down and don't see nothing. And then I look up and - 'Oh shit, it's a white man up there!' [laughs] That's what really shocked me. Blood shows up real good on a white man."

"So I'm like, 'He's bloody, f****d up,'" T.I. continues. "And he's like, 'Those motherf****rs, I'ma get 'em, I'ma get 'em.' And he tried to get up and he fell back down. Clearly, his leg was broken or something. And he told us the story about how he thought his girlfriend was cheating on him with his best friend. He tried to jump from 14 - and I think we were probably the sixth floor, something like that. And he was trying to continue to jump. And we was like, 'No, no, no. Don't do that.' So basically, I offered him the J, but he couldn't reach me. So I said, 'I tell you what, I'll let you hit it if you let me call somebody to get you down.' So he let us call somebody to get him down. And I didn’t know it, but that was Scott Stapp from Creed."
