Prolific Atlanta hip-hopper, reality-TV star and actor T.I. works a laid-back, Southern-steeped style of rap that's by and large wildly self-aggrandizing, but on occasion—as on "Sorry," his track with Andre 3000—exposes a chink in his 24-karat armor. Having collaborated with everyone from Eminem, Jay-Z and Rihanna to Justin Timberlake, Kanye and Cee Lo, the 32-year-old is also one of the best-connected MCs in the game. A few months back, T.I. toasted his eighth album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, at this venue; tonight, cross your fingers for a sneak peek of forthcoming follow-up, Trouble Man II: He Who Wears the Crown. Slaughterhouse MC Joe Budden opens up.
