a rapper from ATL.quoted from Ti in an interview "Well my name is Tip. Anybody that knows me from the streets or knows me personally calls me Tip. My momma calls me Tip, my grandmomma calls me Tip, everybody. When I rap I say T.I.P. because when I say Tip, because of my accent, people used to think I was saying Chip, Chuck, you know.. so I spell it out T.I.P.

I got signed as T.I.P. but when LaFace Records merged with Arista that put me on the same label as Q-Tip and they didn't want to work two albums with names so similar. So they asked me to change my name to T.I. "
Yeah you know they call me T.I.
but you dont know me
You be hatin an i see why
cause you dont know me

T.I. Aka Tip Harris(Clifford Joseph Harris Jr),rap name used to be "TIP" but changed it to T.I. so there was no confusion with him and Q-TIP. Member of PSC(Pimp Squad Click)owns his own label Grand Hustle, the most successful rapper and the best in my opinion, who agrees?
T.I. is from the dirty south.Atlanta,Georgia.
*Lookin' at the life through my rearview, all the problems I had
Could be seen alot clearer after time had passed
Known for livin' so fast, they wonder how he don't crash
With 220 on the dash, he constantly mashin'
(Why don't he slow down?) They be constantly askin'
But me in the fast lane is like metal and magnets
Now I ain't tryna say that it's the way of the masses
But it, so hard to change, I love this shit with a passion
Since me and Sigel cuttin' classes, showin' our ass
Shootin' out in broad day in the middle of traffic
I remember sellin' crack faster than I could bag it
A shame I ain't playin' with you shorty, I ain't braggin'
Me and Cap got life, some other folk got blasted
Had a partner OD'd and after this all happened
It's like the only thing that kept a pimp from cryin' and laughin'
And the Lord smiled on me at the end of the madness
I never thought that I'd make it this far rappin'
For introducin' the youth to what we now call trappin'
Considered now a classic, who'da imagined?
Me in Milano, gettin' models in next year's fashions
So nowadays, they can call me old fashioned
But it's way too much cash to see blue lights flashin'
So I guess the moral of this here class is
Life about who make it now not about who make it the fastest*

A rapper native to Atlanta formerly known as TIP. He's somewhat angry and misunderstood. A former street pharmicist gone rapper. Acknowledges his past and raps about his life situation and hopes for the future for himself and the "trap". Disputed "King of the South"... see "Ludacris". Plagued by "bustas" and "hatas" his rhymes are primarily concerned with quelling these nay-sayers. Criminally investigated with the FBI for pushin yay, that which TI indirectly admits is wrong. He wishes that people see beyond his past and what he wants to do for his community through his rap career. Critically acclaimed he's reached ol G status along with being a rhyme don.
You might see me in the street, but you don't know me. - TI
