New VH1 Series To Chronicle Rapper T.I.’s Road To Redemption…Again

VH1 is teaming up with multi-platinum recording artist and America’s top-selling rapper T.I. as he re-adjusts to life as a free man after being incarcerated for nearly a year in a Federal prison in Arkansas. In the new as-yet untitled T.I. series premiering December 5 at 10PM, viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the most private and personal moments of one of today’s hottest, most sought after Grammy winning artists as he is reunited with his wife and kids and thrust back into society at this crucial juncture in his life. I am just frustrated with T.I., I have been a fan since his first studio album “I’m Serious” and have watched him turn into one of the hottest rappers in the game and talking a good game but not following it. When you listen to him speak you know that he is an intelligent man, he just seems to do stupid stuff. With all his gifts and blessing he has got to do better and be smarter. As hard as it is for me to say it, if he messes up this bad again I might have to stop being a fan.

The half hour 10-episode series follows the “King of the South” at his most vulnerable state, as he is released from an 11 month Federal prison term, his second stint in three years. Along the way we will see T.I. re-acclimate back into his life as a father, husband, son and friend, as well as a musician, a clothier, a businessman, and an actor (he last starred in and produced Sony’s film TAKERS which opened number one at the box office the weekend prior to his arrest). We will also witness T.I. behind the scenes in studio as he goes about recording a new album. All the while with T.I. needing to abide by a new set of restrictions and obstacles due to his probation terms.

Viewers will also get a glimpse into the very loving and always fascinating relationship between T.I. and his wife Tameka (aka “Tiny”), who has faithfully stood by T.I.’s side through it all and who herself was a former member of 90’s Grammy winning pop group Xscape. Tameka and T.I. are passionately in love, but both know that this previous incarceration has to be his last. The mother of two of T.I.’s children, along with her own fifteen-year-old daughter, Tameka was forced to hold down the fort while T.I. was behind bars. Viewers will also be introduced to the OMG GIRLZ, a sizzling new up-and-coming pop group that Tameka manages. With T.I. back on his throne, we will watch as he reclaims his kingdom, rebuilds his businesses, and reconnects with his family and friends.
