    WON: AKOO Lantern Jeans (Raw Lightning)

    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!!!!!!

    Chris East - Profile: http://www.trapmuzik.com/member/i/2129568/

    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!!!!!

I have been listening to T.I. since 2002 or 2003. My husband gave me my 1st T.I. cd Trapmuzik and he said since I don't listen to hardcore rap, then he know I will like T.I.. He is absolutely right!!!!! I can say I have attend 3 T.I. concerts and can't wait until he comes back to Chicago and perform. His music is phenomenal!!!! I try to keep up to date with whatever is going on with T.I.. I buy the magazine that he appear on. I love his clothing line and I hope in the near future he has a female clothing line. I can't wait until his new cd and movie come out. My daughters and I will continue to support T.I. and I wish him nothing but love and more success!!!!!!!

I just like T.I......

I am one of T.I.'s biggest fans because he is not ashamed to pronounce God in his life. He isn't ashamed to let it be known that God is the reason for who he is and that God is the reason for where he is. T.I. is honest, he is a real person, he may make mistakes, nobody in this world is perfect but he man's up to his wrongs. The number 1 thing that stands out for me is that he wears his faith on his sleeve. He is a man of God and Jesus is with him. Like he said on the Tyra show, " I don't fear anything but God. I mean. God will never take me to what He can't take me through." And on his song No Matter What, he said, " If your heart filled with faith then you can't fear. Wonder how i face years and i'm still chillin'? Easy. Let go and let God deal with it." T.I. is a man of God and that is why i am a big fan of T.I. Stay Blessed in Jesus' name, Mr. T.I., Mrs. Tiny and family.

I love T.I. as a person first...his mind...his mentality...his thought process...and most of all his philosophy on life itself. It takes a real and clever human being to take a negative and turn it into a positive...everyone cannot do this...or either is not willing to !!! I myself can definitely relate to alot of his known circumstances...I support anyone wo's trying to make something of their life despite the trouble they've seen. He is a positive role model in today's society. We need more people like T.I. to come forward and make a stand...Go T.I. I support you

i'm tip biggest fan because of the way he carries his self. he is as real as it gets in the hiphop game. not only does he spit real life on all his tracks but you can tell that he strives to give u the best he can give on every album. no matter what his peers think they already know he is the "KING", NOT BECAUSE HE SAID SO BUT HE SHOWS IT . to be the best u must stand out from the rest , be real with yourself and real will follow.much respect to T.I. keep bringing hits to the table. but the most important reason he is king is because he tellthe kids to be better then him and do as he did but what he should have done in life situtions . if T.I. is reading this i got one thing to say "IN ORDER TO BE THE BEST I GOT TO BE BETTER iAM COMMING INDEPENDENT HUSTLE . YOUR BIGGEST FAN COBWEB DABLUR

i love t.i because he is one of the most intelligent rappers out there and knows how to tell it like it is. He isn't afraid of saying what is on his mind and doesn't care what people think of him.

Rockermom87's picture

I love T.I. because he knows how to speak the truth and he is the best rapper that I listen to!! my boyfriend and I love to listen to him and to us he is the greatest rapper ever!!

Charlotte21's picture

We all are T.I's fans. I'm a fan because for me music should be about feelings ( these bad and these good) and about experiences in life. And these all things I see through T.I's music. I see how he came a long way to become a better man. I love his attitudes and his point of view at things. From his album I'm Serious to King Uncaged I noticed how he grew up and became more mature. Life is all about choices. And T.I said that mistakes build character. I know that it works 'cause the things he has been through and the mistakes he had made , they all built his character and he's stronger. And he shows it in his songs .These words fits to some of my situations too. I just love T.I that in all of that music business he's himself and he doesn't pretend to be someone else.

I am T.I.'s biggest fan cause I am, and because all of his songs sound dope. He's one of the talented rappers out there. KI.N.G, I basically luv everything he makes songs, movies etc, I can keep going on but i'm tied up right now, i'm too busy because i'm listening to T.I.'s new music and i'm luvin it. Oh and by the way I'M so glad your out of prison cause the game needs you man, we need you. Be carful and stay out of trouble. MUSKAAJONES.

latwain fortson's picture

t.i. is my favorite rapper because he is the only one i know that really makes sense and he is a great rapper the best in my eyes. t.i. has been my favorite ever since im serious i have every album and only listen t.i. nothing else literally. t.i. music also inspire me to do my own thing and try to be a rapper. i dont think im that good but i keep my head up. i go by Big-Kuntry and its inspired by t.i. to do this so thats why t.i. is my favorite rapper

jeremyjoeryderking's picture

By the way to my comment underneath, you ARE the best rapper alive in my book if my words got twisted n didn't make sense hah.

Wife-fe,N.I.P.'s picture

K.I.N.G. baby what's up ya'll a Tip you always on point and love you that's why I'm your biggest fan too. Baby just take them jeans off, don't wash 'em...that shirt too and send 'em to me to rock.

jeremyjoeryderking's picture

All the way back to when Arista Records made their worst move in the world by dropping Tip's record label, and the birth of Grand Hustle, I've been led, guided and educated by the King. He taught me how to move on through adversity (Still Ain't Forgave Myself, Doin My Job) and get over things you can't fix from your past depicted in the beef between T.I. and T.I.P. ya know. Present situation Vs. past environment. And keepin' it real on a day to day basis. As a kid from Michigan, livin' all the way up North, it's evident to us "yankees" that T.I. put the south on the map, and his city too, no matter what Shawty Lo tries to say to get attention. Tip, you taught me I'm on my King shit no matter what I'm doin', as long as I keep my faith in God and stayin' true to myself, livin the life that I choose instead of the life that chose me, ya see. I'm on a different status than the other people postin on here, cuz they like yo T.I. I love you, you the best rapper alive, blah blah I walk talk and act like you. But you see, you taught me a couple solid points about life, bein a great role model that you are, that I can stitch in to my own personality and improve myself, and not be like other groupies and jock your swag to the point they aren't themselves anymore. I got to say, you're like a parental figure I've never had. You grew a seed from the pavement, and the pictures I paint on the canvas of my own music, is almost entirely inspired by you revolving around the lessons I learned from yours, but of course lessens I've learned through my own mistakes. I'm affiliated with a couple record labels in Detroit, I'm a rapper producer song writer.Just call me Pharell hah. Everytime I'm in need of motivation ta get a song recorded I pop in one of your CD's, soak in some inspiration and spit it out. On a different note, I bought an AKOO shirt the day they went on sale off Dr.Jay's website and wore it pretty much every week, I'm in need of a new one, haha. Peace.- J.Ryder

i am T.I.'s biggest fan because i love his music and he is one of the greatest hip hop artists of all time, in my opinion.

Ryo Kanda's picture

I like T.I. because he is really talented entertainer: not only hip hop artist, but also actor. and he also produces movies, clothes. He is a fashoinable too. He is really dedicated to his music, and i can feel from his music even though I cannot understand every word he put in his music since I'm from Japan.I respect you and support you T.I. good luck with your future!

Ms.Fitz's picture

I'm a fan because his music inspires me to never give up no matter what life throws at me. After everything he's been through he's still going strong and rapping from the heart and that is something i really admire. I LOVE his music, ive been listening to it since Trap Muzik and i have all his albums and mixtapes on my ipod. I love his voice, i listen to his music when i fall asleep.. and first thing in the morning, its just gets me so pumped up and happy. Honestly he is just a genius and i love him to death!

Lexi's picture

I love T.I. because to me he's the greatest hip hop artist out right now, he's very talented, he's also a great actor and his music is irresistable

mjsmooth09's picture

I'm the biggest tip fan because I understand how he is going through lifes push-ups, similar to myself. I find that everytime he seems to be in a down situation he pushes himself right back up almost effortlessly. I realized that he was one of the most ginuine rappers in the game ever since I first picked up his In The Streets vol.1 mixtape, he was spitten real rap then and seven albums later he's still talkin the same real rap. I was born in East Point moved around a couple places, at one time staying right off Bankhead with my grandma, and now reside in the SWAT's. I say all that to say that no matter were I've been tip has guided me through the trials and tribulations of that particular time. Finaly, to tip I want to say stay up, they can't stop the hustle because it's grand hustle, and continue to make us all proud.
With much love and respect, from one of your biggest fans- MJ

I AM THE BIGGEST FAN!!!....That'Z all there iZ tO it!(PERIOD!) ah' AH! :D

Ms. Mackey's picture

I am not sure if I am one of his "biggest" fans, but I am a fan. I am a fan because of his talent,(naturally) but mainly his intellect. I love his music, personality, fatherhood, views and opinions. T.I. has never said anything that I disagree with. I know what it is like to lose someone close (My kid's father) and it is definitely a life changing experience. I wish there were more MEN like Mr. Clifford T.I. Harris, and I am talking about mentally, ONLY. I am more of a fan to R&B then rap, there are alot of rap artist and rap songs that I don't necessarily listen too. I love all of T.I's music. Just to be a little more honest I am a fan of eminem, don't like all of his music but I feel he is Extremely talented, and I understand where he is coming from. So I say that to point out that I am an all around fan of T.I., more of the man then the artist.

T.I. was always my biggest fan cause he shows us that no matter what situation confront you in life never give up but keep working hard and keep your head up. What I also like about T.I. is his dedication. After he came out of prison he start working the same time and create an album, (Man that's dedication!!) that shows us if you want something in life, if you want to motivated or inspire someone, you must dedicate you're self in what you doing and do it with love. T.I. your my biggest fan and the best rapper ever keep on with the good job your doing and keep inspiring the world. God bless you T.I.
