T.I. is also celebrating 15 years of his Trap Muzik album creating a musical museum in its honor.
T.I. has made quite a comeback in 2018. Not only musically but also curating a museum about the popular rap sub-genre he is credited with creating back in 2003. Now that his highly-anticipated tenth studio album Dime Trap is released, the King of the South is now moving on to bigger and better things becoming a strong presence in his community. Starting with affordable housing in Atlanta’s low income neighborhoods.
In an interview with ABC News, Tip explained his new mission to “buy back the block” partnering up with Dynasty Real Estate Development and APD-Urban Planning and management, who are extremely committed to buying and flipping buildings with prices that have went up because of gentrification to create more affordable housing.
The Atlanta hip hop mogul also teamed up with Killer Mike to protect small local businesses from foreclosure. The project is starting with Bankhead Seafood, a fish fry the two men will rebuild and re-open under the same name, with the same recipes.
T.I. via ABC News:
“With as much growth and opportunity that’s going on in my community—and, you know, Mike’s community as well—we refuse to be left behind.”
But please don’t let this story take away the fact that Tip also tweeted out Friday the promotional video for his new album “Dime Trap” featuring a Melania Trump impersonator giving him a Oval office strip tease!
The clip is only a minute long, but don’t it pack lot of shock value in those brief 60 seconds??!
What’s your 2 cents?!
