To help promote his upcoming album, T.I. will be taking part of tonight's Atlanta Hawks broadcast as a commentator.
The King of the South is keeping busy these days. With his long awaitedTrouble Man LP slated for release, it looks as if T.I. will be dropping this album on time as he has been in full-on promotional mode. As part of his promotion, the Atlanta rapper, and courtside ticket owner, will be calling the game for part of tonight’s Atlanta Hawks broadcast.
Tonight the Hawks are up against LeBron James and the defending champion Miami Heat so this game will garner some national media attention, and Tip will be calling the first half of the contest alongside the usual commentators.
From Fox News (via SLAMonline): “With music, acting, producing, two novels and fashion under his belt, Atlanta native, T.I. will soon add NBA color commentator to his resume. When the Atlanta Hawks take on the Miami Heat Friday night at Philips Arena, T.I. will join longtime SportSouth commentator Bob Rathbun and former Atlanta Hawk Duane Ferrell as contributing sports analyst. During his debut, T.I. will participate in live game day coverage on SportSouth during the first two quarters of the Atlanta Hawks vs. Miami Heat game airing at 7:30 p.m. T.I. will be available for media prior to the broadcast from 6:45 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.”
