With nine albums, numerous top chart hits, a seven-season reality TV show, and at least eight films under his belt by the age of 37, it’s only fair to say that Tip “T.I.” Harris is one of the most successful hip hop moguls of our time. Making the shift from teenage trap rapper, to actor, and then full-time father and philanthropist has proven him worthy of his self-proclaimed title of “King of the South.” True Hip Hop fans have been hip to T.I.’s potential from the time he debuted his first album under Grand Hustle Atlantic, titled Trap Muzic in 03’…but it looks like the corporate world is finally giving T.I. the recognition he deserves.
Today, T.I. will be taking a trip to the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts in San Antonio, TX where he’s expected to be presented the Visionary Award; an honor given to inspirational moguls and professionals by ICON TALKS. According to the ICON TALKS website, this nonprofit organization features “intimate discussions with icons from various walks of life, that explore their path to success and provide a platform to engage, entertain, and inspire.” Congratulations T.I., we’re glad to see Hip Hop represented in a positive light!
Tickets are currently on sale ranging from about $45-$100.
