T.I. Is Skeptical That Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

Rapper T.I. has trouble believing that Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden is dead because multiple stints in prison have turned him into a "conspiracy theorist."
The terrorist mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks in 2001 was shot and killed in Pakistan in May - but T.I., who was serving time for a probation violation when the news broke, is not sure what to believe because he's lost faith in the authorities.
He tells Vibe magazine, "Man, I'm a conspiracy theorist by nature. You can't experience the federal penal system and not be somewhat skeptical."
The hip-hop star completed his latest prison sentence in September, a year after he served nine months for gun charges.
