Rapper T.I. -- whose real name is Clifford Harris -- took the stand in Cincinnati today, telling jurors that the gunfire directed at his posse during a car chase 2 years ago were supposed to take him out.

"All those rounds were fired for me, in my opinion," he said.

He was testifying in the trial of Hosea Thomas, who is accused of shooting Philant Johnson during the shootout that took place on I-75.

The gun fight occurred following a post-concert bash at a nightclub. T.I. testified that as his van drove off, another vehicle came up behind them and opened fire.
