Born on September 25, 1980, Clifford Joseph Harris Jr. was an Atlanta based rapper before making it big as T.I.
He began rapping at the age of eight and it wasn’t until 2001 that he hit it big with his album I’m Serious. Since then, T.I. continues to make big hits and has even been popular on reality television. In honor of his birthday, here are 8 of our favorite T.I. songs.
- “I’m Illy” (2008)
From the album Paper Trail, T.I. shows off his wordplay skills in this song.
2. “What You Know” (2006)
This is definitely a windows down kind of rapping song! It’s an anthem that’ll help out in any situation.
3. “Rubber Band Man” (2003)
Nine in my right, forty-five in my other hand! This ridiculous hit was catch and was from his successful Trap Muzik album.
4. “U Don’t Know Me” (2004)
The pan flute in this song though?! Genius! Not to mention, the rap chorus makes it even better.
5. “Kingofdasouth” (2003)
Such an absolute Southern summer hit that mentioned some familiar rappers in Atlanta.
6. “ASAP” (2004)
T.I.’s rap was on point in this sickening hit. He never really talked smack on other rappers in this song, but rather called out his king status.
7. “Live Your Life” (2008)
T.I. vs. T.I.P.
It was his second No. 1 solo song and happened to make it on the Hangover soundtrack. With the added bonus of Rihanna, everyone was singing this in the club.
8. “T.I. vs. T.I.P.” (2003)
Off of the Trap Muzik album, the song based on him trying to stay focused, but sticking with his Mary Jane instead.
