Atlanta rapper T.I. must wait another six weeks before trying to convince a judge to throw out key evidence obtained against him in October when he was arrested on federal firearms charges.
U.S. Magistrate Alan Baverman postponed a suppression hearing, initially scheduled for Thursday, until Feb. 19. T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., was arrested Oct. 13, just hours before the BET Hip-Hop Awards ceremony in Atlanta for allegedly trying to buy machine guns and silencers in a Midtown parking lot.
In November, Harris' legal team filed court motions contending the search of Harris' vehicle on the afternoon of his arrest was illegal because it was conducted without "a warrant, consent or probable cause." As a result, "all evidence obtained in the searches and all statements as well as fruits thereof must be suppressed," the motion said.
If Harris' lawyers prevail in this motion, a large part of the government's case will be gutted.
Harris, who has pleaded not guilty, was released pending trial on a $3 million bond, under strict conditions that include home confinement.

Forget Beyonce and Jay-Z, T.I. & Tiny are hip-hop’s real Bonnie & Clyde! What other couple do you know was taken down by the ATF and FBI and are still going strong? All jokes aside, these two went through a lot this year with the lost of their daughter but kept moving forward.
Tiny made many appearances with her man in ‘07, from his album parties to his movie releases - she stood by his side. Now with T.I.’s upcoming court date on weapons charges (among other things) we can just say that she is a true ‘ride or die’ chick.
I found out day that indeed Tiny's having a baby boy..this will be Tip & Tiny 2nd boy/child together...& T.I's 4th child.
