Real Name – Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr.
Born – September 25, 1980
Riverdale, Georgia, U.S.
Rapper, actor, sunglasses aficionado.
Began rapping at age 9, was discovered as a teenager, became a huge rap star.
His first album peaked at number 98 and only sold 163,000 copies, causing him to be dropped from his label.
Came back strong with albums two and three, got some Grammy nominations, won a Vibe award for “Best Street Anthem.” Whaddaya you mean you never heard of the Vibe Awards. They're a storied tradition that date all the way back to 2003.
Went to prison (for a month) for violating probation on a previous drug conviction.
Went back to prison in 2009 after being charged with possession of three unregistered machine guns and two silencers. Probably needed them for hunting. Seriously, you totally need silencers when you're hunting.
Went back to prison (again) in 2011 for violating parole on his previous conviction, was released early and sent to a halfway house, was driven there in a pimped out party bus. Oh T.I., don't ever change.
