Grand Hustle Records executive Jason Geter has come forward to discuss the publicized bomb scare which took place at incarcerated rapper T.I.'s Georgia office building yesterday (November 19).
According to Geter, a suspect has already been identified in the incident.
"A kid came over there a couple of days ago that acted kind of crazy," Geter explained in an interview. "I wasn't there, but some kid that was a little off was pretty much asking for somebody to come to his party. He got a little irate when he was in the office. We're kind of assuming it was him. He made a couple of threats when he was in the office. Two days later, this happens. You can't help but say, 'It must have been this idiot.'" (MTV)
Reports of the incident landed online early Thursday afternoon.
Atlanta police said they discovered two Molotov cocktails Thursday at an office belonging to Rapper TI. A SWAT team was called in to remove the explosives from the scene at the 1700 block of Defoors Ferry. Officials said the Molotov cocktails were not lit. The incident is under investigation.

An officer covering the scene also confirmed the existence of explosives.
"One of the occupants came out early this morning to start his car up," officer Otis Redmond told media, "and noticed two suspicious bottles sitting on the front portion of the walkway." (Fox 5)
In addition to Geter's statement, another Grand Hustle rep addressed the event.
Sources for Grand Hustle dispute the reports however and told HipHopWired that the explosives were near the office and not in front of the building. (Hip Hop Wired)
