T.I. is a southern rapper who used to be known T.I.P, which stands for "Ten Inch Playa". His rap alias was then changed to T.I. (obviously taking of the "P") because his advisors and producers were worried that his current rap alias would be confused with Q-tip, another rapper.
A rapper, self-proclaimed as "King of the South", was born on September 25, 1980, and recently released his album "King". It has several hit singles such as "What You Know", and "Why You Wanna". His real name is Clifford Joseph Harris Jr. His original rap alias was T.I.P. which stood for "Ten Inch Playa" but then out of respect for the rapper "Q-tip", he changed it to T.I. He's definitely a good rapper, and all the haters above my definition need to check what theyre saying cuz a lot of it is bull$hit. T.I. is also a member of P$C, and owns his record label, "Grand Hustle Records". Some of his other hits include "Rubberband Man", "Bring Em Out", "Motivation", "Asap", and "You Don't Know Me". He is also featured in several hit songs such as "Shoulder Lean" by Young Dro, and "Soldier" by Destiny's Child. He has a beef with Lil Flip, who in my opinion is a lame rapper with stupid songs that yell "Flip. Flip.", for half the song. Weep. How sad. umm yea thats pretty much all about T.I.
"Dontcha know i got key by the three when i chirp shawty chirp back. loaded knapsack where im holdin all the work at. what you know about that. what you know about that. what you know about that, hey i know all about that."
-What You Know by T.I.
A skilled southern rapper who is praised by his peers as one of the hottest lyricists of the 21st Century. Very diverse in content matter, ranging from emotional and introspective songs (eg 'I Still Luv U') to smooth R&B anthems (eg 'Let's Get Away') to hard street anthems (eg 'You Don't Know Me') to braggadocious tracks which show off his lyrical ability and flow (eg 'I'm Serious'). Biggest hit to date is 'Bring 'Em Out' but was first given mainstream love after his mega-hit 'Rubberband Man.' Claims to be the 'King Of The New South,' which is not far from the truth.
