Atlanta’s T.I. taped ‘VH1 Storytellers’ last night for Dec. 10

t.iAtlanta rap star T.I., now out of prison after a weapons charge, is getting back to the business of his music.

Last night, he taped an episode of VH1’s “Storytellers,” which is set to air on December 10. Here’s the VH1 press release:

New York, NY – August 25, 2010- T.I, the proclaimed “King of the South,” got personal last night during VH1’s Storytellers taping saying, “Even when I lose faith in myself there is something in me that speaks through and says I am not finished yet” as he hit the stage of New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom and kept the capacity crowd on their feet the whole night as he blazed through a set of career hits. This exclusive performance, “VH1 Storytellers: T.I.” will premiere on Friday, December 10th at 11:00 PM*.

Between songs, T.I. opened up with candid stories about his redemption from the life of a drug dealer to the rap superstar he is today. He also entertained questions from the audience on topics ranging from his time in prison to his future aspirations as a musician and actor.

Fans were treated to never-before-performed-live songs “Still Ain’t Forgave Myself” and the highly personal “I Still Luv You” which he revealed chronicles his pain over the death of his father and the love of his children despite becoming a father at a young age. T.I. explained that this was the right time, right stage and the right crowd to unleash these hit songs in a live performance.

The hour-long “VH1 Storytellers” episode will also feature T.I. performing a selection of his biggest hits such as “Rubber Band Man,” “Bring Em Out” and “Live Your Life.”  For viewers at home, they’ll gain a unique opportunity to hear T.I. share his stories and the inspirations behind each song.

“VH1 Storytellers: T.I.” is a production of VH1. Patrizia DiMaria produces with Lee Rolontz, Rick Krim and Bill Flanagan serving as executive producers.

It’s the King you hating chumps. Tip if you read this type of stuff you need to take your time with the music. Glad you slowed down and pushed the album back so that you can come up with the dopest music you can. As for the 1 idiot who came on here to hate “The Standard”, you are sad.

Did anyone go to the Takers Atlantic Station premiere last night? T.I. is my favorite rapper, so smart, handsome, and charitable. He treats his fans well and never takes his fame or wealth for granted. I hope he has learned from all of his legal troubles and remains on the right path. I think he should also show his now wife some respect by wearing his wedding band on his ring finger, not on a chain like it is some middle school promise ring. Otherwise, I think Takers will be in the top 3 this weekend.

Folks. Don’t even respond to comments like those of “the standard”…simply ignore their negativity and hatred…probably just jealous of the brother’s success…so “back to you fry stations and trailer parks”….
