Not all rappers are versatile. Many speak on what they know and play it creatively safe. Or, if you're Rick Ross, you make up a fantasy and sell that. There's a standard formula in the game -- the rise up from the streets to a subsequent lavish life in the limelight.
T.I. fits this mold. Born in the projects? Check. Hustled growing up? Check. Rap sheet? Check. Jail time? Check, twice. His lyrics involve money and fame and garner him street cred. He represents Bankhead, Atlanta, and P$C. T.I. could just be another variable in the hip-hop formula, but he actually transcends the stereotypes.
The Grammy-winning artist is versatile -- if not as a rapper then as a human being. He's a businessman and a storyteller. He's an author and an actor. He's an actual lifesaver (including of Scott Stapp). There's a lot you probably don't know about T.I. And we're here to help with that.
