T. I. to host New Year’s Eve bash in downtown Atlanta

T.I. will be in downtown Atlanta this New Year’s Eve. The rapper and actor will host a bash at the 200 Peachtree events facility.

Tickets start at $30 for general admission to $2,500 for a VIP table.

Presented by Grey Goose Vodka, the event is scheduled to last from 9 p.m. New Year’s Eve to 3 a.m. New Year’s Day.

The Grammy-winning artist said on his blog that he intends to drop a mixtape at midnight. The title, alas, is not suitable for a family newspaper. Here is the link if you’d like to know more.

T.I., known in legal circles as Clifford Harris, was released from a halfway house at the end of September. He had been in federal custody since an arrest in September 2010 in Los Angeles on drug charges. He was sentenced to 11 months for violating terms of a previous supervised released after being convicted of federal firearms charges.

He told MTV following his release that his time in custody would inspire new work:

“My life inspires my lyrics at all times, so at that moment in time, when I first came home, I have about 15 songs just totally focusing on that,” T.I. said. “Out of those 15, I probably picked the two or three most significant, most compelling, impactful ones, and after I’ve been out for a minute, then I’ve got records totally focusing on speaking to people who can only focus on that and telling them I’m ready to move on.”

If you’d like tickets to his New Year’s event, here is the link.

Why is there so much negativy from everyone. Okay he has made mistakes but he is still human…who are we to judge this man. So what he wants to through a party in Atlanta for New Years? If you dont like it dont go….simple as that. Everyone is quick to judge someone what if someone judged you and all your wrong doings. What if somone looked at you and decided oh because you dress this way or talk this way they pentalize you. All I am saying is people really need to stop judging….enjoy life you only have one.

If you are offended by my comment oh well once again you will be judging and you dont even know me.

Is the AJC on this guy’s PR payroll? He gets so much press for every little thing he does. Agree with SLW that everyone makes mistakes, and I’m not talking about judgement here, but jeez, is he really someone who should be continually held up as someone to aspire to? The media has a lot of power just in its presence. It’s really so sadly irresponsible how that power has used for this faux celebrity mania over the last twenty years. How about putting all this media energy behind something or someone who inspires people to be better?

Personally, I’m sick to death of seeing every movement this guy makes, reported in the AJC. And while we’re at it, that goes for T.O. too

This should be awesome. T.I. recently release from prison and onward with life. Love the new show my family and I think its great. You and Tiny both have a great relations hip with the extended family and make it all into one happy home. You have so many people watching you as a role model and since your life revolves around the spotlight, try to not go back down the same road you traveled in the past. This time take a different route and head towards a new destination. God doesnt make mistakes, and everything happens for different reasons. Just know that I myself have experience the same as your wife “Tameka(Tiny) Harris” and its very hard being alone with the kids when you are use to someone always around. Although 11 months was not too long, its long enough without your love ones. Finally, when you do time behinds bars, your love ones serve time was well, because we are incarcerated mentally while you are serving physically! Much success to you and yours, may God continue to bless the family you both share together and make decisions based on “WWJD”>>>> What Would JESUS DO!

Why can’t people pay their debts and be forgiven? Gosh, when you pay your credit card bill off do you call them and say make sure you keep it “unpaid on my credit report” ? No. So leave him the hek alone. No, we may not be fans of the negative actions of others but that is why you are supposed be slow to speak and easy to show that person the right way. Get a life and go into a dark room to develop.

T. I. as one of America’s great talents, I’ve prayed for you and your family every since your friend was killed in a crash. I continually lift you up and pray that God protects you from dangers seen and unseen. You are intelligent and introspective, both are which are great qualitites of a world leader. What God has for your is not only for you, its bigger and greater than anything you could have imagined and far greater than the field of entertainment. Its truly time for your Greater to manifest!!!

We were down with TI…both times. Everybody can come up from their past. Who still talks to Martha Stewart about prison? He’s just trying to take care of his family…legally. People pick and choose who they want to forgive and who’s criminal acts they want to forget. Just remember that everybody has a past. We all fall down. It’s how you get back up that shows your true character.

I think the sponsorship by Grey Goose is a nod to TI for telling Diddy in the club to STFU about who was not drinking HIS endoresed Ciroc at that release party a few months ago. Yep!

I hate it for him because some FOOLS will do something and they will blame T.I.

T.I. think about this- don’t do it-please save yourself from returning to prison.

This blog is no better than the dating blog with the same lonely bitter people commenting every single day. Take a look for yourself if you don’t believe me.

But Kirk: I wonder how many of these people putting up thousands of dollars to “hang” with T.I. don’t know anything about a child’s college fund or a trust fund or investing for the kid’s and their own future but hey it’s T.I. so let’s dive into the savings account so we won’t MISS HIM!

In the words of Clifford Harris, “you can hate if you want too, but you’re wasting your time.” Tell ‘em T.I. He stays in the AJC and other media outlets simply because there’s an obvious interest in what he does by quite a few people. I am a fan and I wish he and Tiny much success! To all of you with nothing positive to say, don’t you wonder sometimes why you’re so miserable? Say something nice or just simply keep quiet and see how happy you will be. My 2 cents.
