Kid Rock is so gangsta: Atlantic gets bad rap

In a Sunday story on Kid Rock's weekend arrest, the AJC points out that both he and rapper T.I. record for Atlantic Records. Coincidence? Maybe.

It's hard to compare a Waffle House fistfight to unregistered machine gun purchases in a Walgreens parking lot. But each artists did get into separate physical altercations (T.I. at a BET Awards-related event in L.A. earlier this year, and Kid Rock in the middle of the MTV Awards taping) near the time of their respective CD releases in 2007. And both debuted this year at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Here's Fox 5 Atlanta's coverage of the Kid getting bailed out of jail in DeKalb County on Sunday, courtesy TMZ.com.

And more photos from Kid Rock's Tabernacle concert, courtesy Perry Julien, who says:

Sorry I didn't get photos of the religious protesters outside the venue with their "Fornicators and Drunkards" signs, but I did get a shot of a fan that just may have been a drunkard propelling himself off the balcony. He survived, but they escorted him out to the street, presumably into the hands of the religious protesters.
