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.”
