Career Highlights: Founded Grand Hustle Records, five of his seven albums are certified platinum, he has been nominated for 17 Grammy Awards and won three for "What You Know," "My Love," and "Swagga Like Us," and has had a successful acting career in movies including "Takers" and "ATL."

As he's often said, T.I. doesn't intend on rapping for too much long. The Kang's forthcoming Trouble Man is set for a fall release. The singles so far have been lackluster, so he's going back to the drawing board, whipping up some new songs for the effort.
