Clifford Joseph Harris Jr. was born September 25, 1980, best known by the stage name T.I., and also by his alter ego T.I.P., is an American rapper, songwriter, actor, record and executive producer as well as the Co-CEO of Grand Hustle Records. According to the Grand Hustle website, T.I. has a clothing line, A King of Oneself (AKOO) launching later in 2008. T.I. grew up in the Bank head neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia, born to Violetta Morgan and Clifford Harris Sr. His original stage name, T.I.P., stems from his childhood nickname Tip, which he got from his grandfather. T.I. was first exposed to hip-hop at the age of seven, and by the time he was 11 he had decided to pursue a career in rap seriously; he signed his first record deal at age 19.
Due to his Southern drawl, many fans mistook his name for Chip, so he began spelling it out T.I.P. Upon signing with Arista Records subsidiary LaFace Records in 2001, he shortened his name to T.I. out of respect for label mate Q-Tip. He is also known to go by Rubber band Man and the self-proclaimed King of the South which has created several cases of controversy between other southern rappers. There has been speculation that he served as Bow Wow's ghostwriter in his early career and still may to this day. T.I. wrote about 30% percent of his third album Unleashed as well the 3rd verse and chorus to his single Let's Get Down. He has written lyrics for other artists such as Diddy and Trina.
His debut album I'm Serious was released on October 9, 2001 through Arista Records, which spawned the single of the same title which featured reggae vocalist Beenie Man. Production was by The Neptunes, DJ Toomp, and The Grand Hustle Team. However, the album did not sell very well, and he was dropped from the label. The album sold 268,000 copies. The single had little airplay and failed to meet the charts. The label would not release another single or video for the album, so T.I. created a video for "Dope Boyz", which had not a video nor single released, but can be seen on YouTube . He released several mix tapes with the assistance of DJ Drama, which created an underground buzz. He resurfaced in the summer of 2003 on Bone crusher's song "Neva Scared".
T.I. released his third album Urban Legend in late 2004. Urban Legend instantly generated crossover success with the hit single Bring 'Em out. He used a sample from Jay-Z's What More Can I Say from The Black Album to create the hook.
