    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!!!!!

ARTIK MONKEY's picture

I have been a fan since I can remember, through all the jailings. I felt the pain of Big Phil passing and respect every way T.I. handled the situation. I support a man protecting his family. While the old Tip is Dead and Gone, the new has got the brains and brawn, all around never foregone. It's the KING bitch.

"Mistakes made on this road to wealth, I still ain't forgave myself."

Been a fan since I'm Serious, this is still one of my favorite T.I. tracks. Waiting with anticipation for King Uncaged.

I've liked T.I.P. ever since his underground records, i have followed him ever since, listened to it all, bought all the records been to his concerts "1st row at all of them" and i think he is the only Artist out there worth for me to buy his records, i buy no one elses, since the beginning all my friends doubt it him even when that whole beef with Flip was around saying Flip had more flow, i stuck and told them off saying T.I.P. is among the greatest if not "THE" greatest and i was right, after the release of his single "what you know about that" they all changed their minds "fakes" but kool, we all are fans of him. His lyrics have inspired me and taught me a bunch of things, i think he is the greatest and i know one day i will get to know him and have a chance to tell him that i am one of if not his biggest fan, i don't have to sit here and tell him this so i can win some of his Akoo clothing, as long as he reads a letter from one of his "TRUE" fans is good enough! Keep up the good work T.I.P. "The King is Back" stop by D-town for another concert man! hopefully i can meet you then!

Hijabiii Noorah's picture

I remember T.I. since "I'm Serious" and here I am listening to his latest music. Astonished, mesmerized, and proud of the growth shown. In a down in the dumps mood, I know that if I turn on T.I.'s playlist on my iPod, I will be lifted up with confidence and the empowering that someone can put out there their mistakes with no fear of judgement through "Better Day" or "No Matter What". Someone that is brave enough to not and try to justify his mistakes but more of build a bridge and paint a picture of a different perspective to the other side of people that would not understand, is someone that I hold in great value. The music T.I. offers is the music that stimulates your mind and makes you think about your own road or even other's that you might have judged. The metaphors he creates are articulate which breaks the stereotype that most people put on rappers.
Class is always needed when you are in the light, as an example to the young audience, and T.I. carries class with that articulate respectful way he presents himself. I'm his #1 fan because I'm a girl that isn't in it for the looks, but rather I bob my head and read his lyrics and dissect his figurative language to find a leader and a better person within his talent. I never went to any of his concerts, because I simply can't afford them. This might have others already better fans, but I am the fan that legally downloads his music because I want to see him grow, I feed and benefit from him. I am the fan that watches his interviews, because I want to hear his intellectual defense in front of Larry King. I am the at home fan, just dreaming.

Rappers are poets.
& as I write poems, inspiration to write honestly is needed, T.I. offers that extra push.
This is more of praise & thank you rather then prove I'm the #1 Fan, prizes are kind of irrelevant to girls that are into rap.lol
Peace*

I am a big T.I. fan. I admire the way he handles his life. Even though I love T.I. so much I got respect for Ms.Tiny. I love the way the take care of their family. I watched his show and recorded each episode. I also recorded the interview he had wit Larry King, and Wendy WIlliams. I try my hardest to say on top of things T.I. does in the public eye. I wrote him while he was in jail. I bought the XXL magazine the day it came out(He was on the cover) I'm excited to watch the movie Takers Aug. 20th and get his new CD Aug. 17th or 24th when ever it hit's the store. I've already saved the money. I think T.I. is a great role model for any and everyone. T.I. Is the King(I love you)

Sydtheblonde's picture

I find T.I to be an exceptional role model for many people. The reason I enjoy this individual is because he opens my eyes to a world that is very different from mine. He raps about things that i have not experienced, things i will probably never experience, and these things captivate me. I admire how he is such a strong individual and has built a solid career based on pure knowledge and experience. His commitment to his work shines through, when you listen to his music you can hear in his voice that he really loves what he does. This is something that I can look up to. Not only is T.I a very respected individual, his charming, attractive features are a plus! I recently ordered his c.d and t-shirt and am looking forward to seeing more of his new work. This is why I believe I am Clifford Harris' number one fan.

dontonio bailey jr.'s picture

my name is Dontonio Bailey Jr. i am 13 years old. i was first introduced to t.i. music when 24s came on the tv in i think it was 2002. me and my uncle would beat 24s on our walls and start rapping even though we didnt know the versus' so we woud just sing the chorus. now me and my other uncle are collosal fans of t.i. but i would say i would that im the#1 t.i. fan though. last year my mom and grandma bought me 3 AKOO shirts and 2 pairs of AKOO pants for christmas indi was really glad. last year my mom had a baby. when she came home from the hospital i had noticed that my baby brother was born an t.i.'s birthday. my baby brother's name is andrew and he was born on septembe 25th, 2009. i was watching larry king when t.i. was on and i was on my cell phone and house phone trying to speak to him but we were out of time. t.i. encourages me to stay in school and do my best. t.i. has a flow like no one else. his albums are spectacular and his mixtapes are the best. i can name my favorite song from all his albums. there is alot of talk in my house about t.i. because my step dad is a bit of a hater though but i ignore it. out of all the rappers i know and listen to, i think t.i. is the best.

karen jones's picture

I admire TI alot he is a great father and provider, I understand what he says in his lyrics he has been thru alot and wants his fans to understand where he has been. Great Job TI keep it coming!!

Monte_Suave's picture

I'm T.I.'s biggest fan not only because I've been listening to his music since "I'm Serious",but also because I dont just listen to his songs, I learn from his music and his lifestyle. T.I. motivates me through more than just his music, his passion to truly want to see a better future for the young people inspires me to keep grinding because I can be as successful as him. We share the almost the same struggle and vision and besides UGK, Rest in Peace Chad Butler, T.I. is my main role model in the industry.

noname31288's picture

Truthfully, I can not compare to others to become T.I.'s biggest fan. But I think I'm still his biggest fan in my own way. I's listened to his songs at least 2 or 3 times per day since I heard him singing "What you know" song (from King album (2006)). It's like a stimulant that turn you up when you down with catchy beats or sometimes it can make you cry with touchy-words about problems, obstacles that he has to face ... Besides, i also like the way he looks at someone, make them become much smaller than him :D so confident. And his performing style is great, really exciting. He's a good actor too, i guess, although all of them are just minor role. Maybe in real life, he has had some mistakes but no one can be perfect, so to me, he's still the best singer I've ever known. I'll listen to him singing till he can't sing anymore. And, wish u luck on your new main role in Takers, can't wait to watch it. PEACE!!!

I'm your biggest fan because I have mad love for you as I know you are a good father and husband. I also have a picture of you in every room of my house. :)

Sonja Michelle Owens's picture

I love TI and the way he presents himself as a man and as father and husband. Best Wishes to TI and his family

Jamcesar's picture

T.I is particulary awesome, you know, no one's like him. his swagger, his lyrics are awesome. i mean he uses his own life experiences on musics and this is the point that make differences between the others. he's not only the King of south but also Brazil Hood King.

Rpetite90's picture

I been wit tip since trap musik all his songs are always the best everytime I hear em. He knows what he talks about to. He spits that real talk

forkandknife's picture

I am your biggest fan, because I respect you, and what you have done with your life. Simple and plain. God bless.

tips#1girl's picture

I am T.I.'s biggest fan because he has motivated me and taught me so much. He raps about real life and trials and tribulations. And that you can make yourself better no matter what. He has had his past and still proved to everybody that he can come out of prison and end up right back on top. He didn't let any setbacks hold him back from anything. And through it he continued to be the best father he could be. T.I is the realest rapper that there is. He tells everything like it is which I admire so much. He took his time to help out other troubled teens who were going on a bad road and to show them that consequences apply to everyone. And that everybody has a different story of where they came from, how they were raised, etc. He taught them that just because yoy may have struggled growing up you can change your life and do something about it. Motivation! And not too mention T.I. Is absolutely beyond the finest man ever!! I am T.I.'s biggest fan!! I

I am his biggest fan because i have all his albums and i go to every show that is in atlanta or nearby i have all video's from itunes and songs &nd the hottest rapper Alive

Milan GoZi's picture

T.I has really motivated me to stand up for myself.... his flow, his delievery, his swagger and i personally like his lyrical game. but thats just me and my opinion some may feel different but i havent heard anything from him that i didnt like because.... he is just the best!!

Prince Cutta's picture

i am T.I number 1 big fan i all always love t.i music his video and his chain T.i music is so real thats no body cant touch i think T.i is should be number 1 because nobody cant go again him

rebel jones's picture

t.i. keeps it lookin good for us! his lyrics are poetic and sick, and he's unapologetic about where he's been and where he's going. i've been waiting for this his new album all year! so excited!!!

Dionne Sanders's picture

I am a big fan of T.I. because his lyrics are not based on the "bling", but they are based on life. T.I. is true to his music, and relates life experience musically and poetically. I respect him as a father because his children are priority. Today, there are many children who are lacking the stability, acceptance, and love of their father. T.I. is blessing his children with his presence. He shows respect to Tameka, and showers her with love that many women wish they could have. His family comes before his music. T.I. has his priorities straight. Although he has made mistakes, he is still human and should not be viewed as "perfect" because he is as star. He seems to have learned from his mistakes, which in learning, he has become a better and more mature man. I commend T.I. on all he does.

e.j.'s picture

I am very proud of the way that T.I. has chosen to share his life as an inspirational testimony to making the best out of any circumstance. He uses music as a conduit for expressing his life and his ideals in a very powerful way. T.I. is also a great rapper and leads the field with edutainment! i enjoy seeing him each time he performs. Detroit loves you, T.I,!

Siccum's picture

T.I has always motivated me to do better than what I expected of myself. I Really appreciate an artist that can allow us into their personal life to show us that they are "Real and as Human" as the rest of us. T.I has been my favorite rapper since "I'm Serouis, and throughout all T.I's adversities,and success he's kept it 100 matter of fact 10,000 and I can see myself in him and Thank him for giving us that real good music we all can relate to. No matter what anyone may post on here, no one can ever take away what T.I means to me.

SAMANTHA C.'s picture

my name is Samantha and I'm his biggest fan because unlike other artists T.I.'s music never sounds the same and he always gives his best when it comes to his music. He is a great role model for everybody because even after all he has gone through he didn't make excuses, he just handled it and made something positive out of it. That's why I am T.I. BIGGEST FAN and I know that he will continue to have much success in all that he does.
