The Grammy-Award-winning rapper was honored in his hometown over the weekend, receiving the Fashion Icon award. Presenting the award ATLFW’s Angela Watts celebrated T.I. for his contributions to the region’s creative arts.
“It does not go unnoticed,” Watts said. She recognized the ATL rapper for “the business that you have created,” adding. “You drive the economy in this city.”
Watts branded T.I. “A true visionary of style, creativity and entrepreneurship,” as she handed him the trophy.
Tip then gave a short acceptance speech, noting his surprise at receiving the award. “I really do appreciate it,” he shared. “I’m humbled and flattered by the acknowledgement and the consideration.
