T.I.


Father, astute businessman, fashion icon, King of the South, future Hollywood A-Lister, and hip-hop standard bearer. With all these titles, no wonder Atlanta, GA native Clifford Harris needs two monikers to tell his whole story. And with the release of the year's most anticipated rap album, T.I. vs. TIP, we get both sides of one of contemporary music's most compelling characters.


Since his 2001 debut LP, I'm Serious, T.I. has become one of the rare hip-hop artists who can not only say that his fan base and his record sales have increased with each new release, but that the critical accolades have continued to flow as well. His hard work and consistency was finally recognized earlier this year with the most high-profile nods of praise in his career so far - a pair of Grammy Awards.

In 2006, T.I. - who was given the nickname King of the South by fans and his peers years ago - graduated to the next level of royalty, King of Rap. His fourth Grand Hustle/Atlantic album in five years, King, was by far the top-selling hip-hop album of the year and if you had an ear to the streets, undoubtedly the most-played. At the same time, Tip proved to be just as potent a guest star, with cameos that dominated radio and music video outlets, including his appearance on Justin Timberlake's Grammy-winning "My Love."  The first single, "Big Things Poppin," is a Mannie Fresh production - a brash anthem that trumpets Tip's triumphs and puts everything inconsequential to rest.  Almost a definite second single is "U Know What It Is," which has Tip teaming up with the tenured, versatile maestro, Wyclef Jean. Rich with Jean's Caribbean bravado and Tip's trap-instilled poise, the track infuses Down South bounce with a worldly look that will undoubtedly shake the clubs to their foundations this summer.

THLast year, multi-tasking became a must for Tip. As he continued to keep a controlling stake in the music business, he also made his critically acclaimed Hollywood acting debut in the coming of age dramedy "ATL." T.I. starred as Rashad, one of four childhood friends who escapes the pressures of being a man of the house, of his senior year in high school, and of finding his way in life by going to the roller rink every weekend with his friends. As audiences discovered, roller-skating was just a small part of the film, as themes of responsibility, love, and loyalty were brought to the forefront.


Besides being an artist in the recording studio and on the silver screen, T.I. has several businesses off the ground, including his record label Grand Hustle - home to such artists as the Mixtape King, DJ Drama, Big Kuntry, and the platinum-certified Yung Dro - and his clothing line created with his manager Jason Jeter, AKOO (A King of Oneself).
And whether he goes by T.I. or Tip, he already has quite a story to tell.
