T.I. Saving Scott Stapp's Life Through Shared Admiration For Alabama Football? T.I. Saving Scott Stapp's Life Through Shared Admiration For Alabama Football.S

This paragraph will be the most important thing you read all day. It came out of Creed frontman Scott Stapp's mouth, in an interview with VH1. He's talking about T.I.:

"It's ironic—he walked in, and I found out later it was the only room left in the hotel and he came in off the street and came out, and as I'm laying on the ledge, blood fell to [T.I.'s] feet and he looked up and he had an Alabama hat on. I said, 'roll tide,' and then he looked at me and put two and two together and really saved my life."

What? Ugh, OK, maybe you need context:

Stapp explained that he'd checked into the penthouse of Miami's Delano Hotel during a drug binge. After days of being awake, phantom voices and the hotel's white walls prompted visions of being trapped in an asylum, and Stapp jumped over his balcony, falling 40 feet. He fractured his skull, broke his hip and nose and couldn't move. Then, in comes T.I. "I laid out there for two and a half hours and my guardian angel showed up—rapper T.I.," Stapp said. "He immediately took care of the situation and saved my life."

Amazingly enough, the two musicians had crossed paths just once before. "I had met T.I. back in 2004, we were both writing songs for The Passion of The Christ: Songs Inspired By soundtrack and we had briefly interacted there and knew what each looked like," he revealed. "We'd talked about being fans of Alabama."

There's really nothing else we can add. But this is as good a chance as any to remind you that this video exists. Roll damn Tide.
