I have been T.I.'s biggest fan when he would perform at college shows before his major deal. I remember it like it was yesterday this skinny light-skin guy, wearing glasses, with so much swag rocked the gymnasium of the State University of West Georgia. It was so bananas that everyone left their seats in the bleachers and ran on the floor to be closer to the stage. I was one of the lucky ones to get front row center! He had so much charisma and stage presences that you had to bob your head & rap along (you even found yourself singing the hooks!). He even smashed the after-party at this little country "hole-in-the-wall" bar. I remember taking one of his flyers they were passing out about him performing at another venue and hung it on my wall. That was over 9 years ago and till this day I still have that flyer. It's like a badge of honor to me. See T.I. has been repping long before the I'm Serious Album. One of my favorite songs’ that he never released on any album is "In Da A". Being born & raised in Georgia (Eastside that is!) that song was the best & realest representation of Atlanta before "JD & em". I have one whole CD book case dedicate to T.I.'s music & the collection is still climbing. I have traveled several times to see him perform & have even called out sick a couple of times to see him make appearances at different venues. Even with his legal woes, I stayed 10 toes down & supported him through all the criticism and hate that was thrown at him. Even when everyone said his career was over, Chevrolet took back the endorsements, & the movie roles had been terminated I was still in T.I.'s corner praying for him & his family. T.I. is a family man, mentor, motivator, an advocate, a leader, and a hard worker. HANDS DOWN, T.I. IS THE BEST RAPPER THAT HAS EVER DONE IT, DID IT, AND DREAMED IT!

WON: AKOO Starboard Tee-Shirt
I HAVE BECOME A REALLY BIG FAN OF T.I. SINCE HIS RUN IN WITH THE LAW, (ARREST) BECAUSE OF THE SIMPLE FACT THAT IT WAS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR HIM I CONSIDERED IT AND NOT ONLY DID HE LEARN SOMETHING FROM IT BUT HE WALKED AWAY BEING A "NEW MAN." HIS MUSIC TO ME IS A JOURNEY THRU HIS LIFE AND THOSE THAT LISTEN TO IT ARE ABLE TO LEARN AND TAKE LIFE LESSONS FROM THEM....I DON'T CONSIDER THE THINGS HE SAY"MUMBO JUMBO" AS WITH ALL THIS OTHER STUFF...I CONSIDER IT KNOWLEDGE THATS LEARNABLE AND TEACHABLE. I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE MAN HE HAS BECOME AND THE FACT THAT HE DOESN'T PLAY THE "BLAME GAME" BUT HE OWNS UP TO HIS RESPONSIBILITIES AS A MAN SHOULD. NOT ONLY IS HE A RAPPER BUT HE HAS BECOME A POSITIVE ROLE MODEL NOT ONLY FOR KIDS, BUT MEN AS WELL!! HATS OFF TO THE KING OF THE SOUTH!!!!!!

WON: AKOO Reynard Jeans
I think I'm T.I's biggest fan for several reasons. First of all I think I'm T.I's biggest fan because I have exactly 188 songs that Tip has made or been featured in, in my Itunes, simply because T.I makes the realest, best music out there. I also think I'm T.I's biggest fan because after seeing T.I on MTV I made a change in my life personally after seeing what he had gone through. I have the utmost respect for T.I I think by seeing T.I's positive influence, I was able to make a change in my own life and get myself of the right path and become more motivated to succeed. I saw and related to T.I in many ways because I lost my Grandaddy this year on January 16th to Alzheimer's after a 12 year battle and my best friend being shipped out to South Korea for a year in the Army. Seeing Tip's positive influence helped me realize that no matter what situation you get placed in, you can always succeed. I appreciate T.I being that positive influence in my life and for taking the time to help other young people. Thats why I think I'm T.I's biggest fan, not only do I enjoy his music but I respect everything he has done and been through in his life to help others and can really relate to him. Thank you Tip. T.I the King!!!!!
