I didn't go inside the club, but I made my way to the Velvet Room on Sunday night to see for myself the huge crowds that descended upon the popular Velvet Room nightclub on Sunday night hoping to be a part of T.I.'s final send off before he enters the federal prison system in Arkansas today.
The line that wrapped around the nightspot located in a suburb of Atlanta, was longer than any I had ever seen at Vision nightclub, which was the predecessor to Velvet Room before it was torn down to make way for Trump Tower in midtown. I should have snapped a pic with my new Sidekick LX 2009 of the red taillights from cars backed up on the exit ramp on I-285. It was a spectacular sight! But none more spectacular than seeing the throngs of beautiful women who came out in the drizzling rain to bid T.I. a fond farewell... until next year.

T.I. and Tiny held a cookout at their estate yesterday for family and friends. A friend said of T.I., "At some point he's going to break down [and cry]. I don't know when, but he's going to break down."
