T.I.’s career, just like many musicians, is one with plenty of ups and downs. What sets the ‘King of the South’ apart however is his uncanny ability to adapt to his unfortunate situations, learn from them, and evolve to a better man, husband, father, actor, clothier, emcee or which endeavor he wishes to focus his creative mind on. Even amidst feuds for the crown, jail time, and a publicized family life, T.I. has curated a flourishing resume that now includes a co-star credit alongside Don Cheadle in Showtime’s House of Lies, his soon-to-release ninth studio album, a clothing line – Akoo – that just celebrated its fifth anniversary, and a successful record label. So while attending Agenda Las Vegas to showcase his brand’s spring, summer and fall offerings, the 33-year-old burgeoning polymath linked with the HYPEBEAST crew to provide a glimpse into some of his daily essentials. Whether it’s a military-inspired Akoo “Defender” hat, a frigid pairing of Rolexes, or Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino fragrance, each item serves as an opulent reminder that appearance, time and faith in God have been very important in making T.I. the accomplished man he is today. Stay tuned for more on our time with T.I.P. at the Agenda trade show in Las Vegas.
