Some of his singles which have made it to the top of the chart include: “Bring Em Out”, “Whatever You Like”, “Live Your Life” (featuring Rihanna), “Dead and Gone” (featuring Justin Timberlake), “Ball” (featuring Lil Wayne) and “No Mediocre” (featuring Iggy Azalea)

Stuffed to the brim with several talents, T.I has appeared in a good number of movies, including ATL, Identity Thief, and Takers, and has authored two novels – Difficulty and Success (published in 2012) and Energy and Beauty (published in 2011). These books all reached reasonable successes and drew huge commendations.

His Early Life

As earlier mentioned, T.I. was born Christopher Joseph Harris, Jnr. to Violeta Morgan and Clifford “Buddy” Harris Sr. on September 25, 1980, in Atlanta Georgia. He began rapping at the age of 8 with the moniker Tip.

He dropped out of Douglas High School to focus on his music career. Launching a music career didn’t come easy for T.I, immediately after dropping out of school, young T.I began selling drugs and soon he got arrested for it.

In his early drug dealing days, he earned the name “Rubber Band Man” which originated from his habit of wearing rubber bands around his waist which reflected the amount of money he made from selling drugs. The nickname was later adapted in one of his songs.

In 1996, he got to know a local rapper who was known as Big Kuntry King. Together, they started selling mixtapes out of a car trunk. It was during this time that T.I. was discovered by Kawan ‘KP’ Prather, a record executive. Kawan offered him a chance to sign under his label Ghet- O-Vision Entertainment. This marked the beginning of his successful career in music.
