TI is one of the most recognizable and influential rappers in the past couple of decades. Now there are many rappers coming from Atlanta, but there was a time when T.I. was one of the rappers from the city who found mainstream success. But find out more about TI below in the second part of our list.
Number Eight: TI Is making a Sequel to ATL
The original film put T.I. on the map as an actor. And he’s going to reprise his role in the upcoming sequel, which TI confirmed on Instagram.
Number Seven: He Doesn’t Think The World is Ready for a Female President
He said he couldn’t imagine voting for Hillary for this reason. He has since apologized for his words.
Number Six: He Gave Iggy Azalea Her Start
She got her start when she signed with his label. T.I. even produced Iggy’s first EP.
Number Five: T.I. gave Meek Mill His First Big Break
Meek Mill caught the attention of T.I. years before the former became famous. T.I. offered him the opportunity to sing a deal, and he eventually did with the Atlanta rapper’s label. But then he was sent to jail and ended up with Rick Ross when he came out.
Number Four: He Was Almost in a Group Called ‘Boys N Da Hood’
The group was going to suggest that it was like the Wu-Tang of the south. It almost had members like Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, and others, but it never actually came to fruition, unfortunately.
Number Three: He Was Raised by His Grandparents
Stories about individuals raised by their grandparents are often stories about modest, mild-mannered kids. T.I. is the exception that proves the rule.
Number Two: He Had Beef with Floyd Mayweather
You think even the cockiest of rappers would avoid a feud with the champion boxer. But they were involved in a huge brawl at a Fatburger in Las Vegas.
Number One: He Was Accused of Snitching When He Was in Prison
He later went on New York radio station Hot 97 and cleared it up. He states that he absolutely never snitched, and if you heard his argument, you probably believed it. Hope you enjoyed our T.I. list, and thank you for reading!
