T.I. broke into Hollywood in 2006 with the supremely underrated ATL, a coming-of-age story that paints a detailed portrait of Atlanta. In it he plays Rashad, a wise high school senior/talented roller skater/aspiring artist/night-time janitor grappling with the cusp of adulthood along with his friends. Despite Tip's age at the time (26) he captured the anxieties of young love and figuring out what the fuck to do after high school.
With several more films since added to his resume, T.I. is set to make a glorious return to his acting origins with ATL 2. The rapper/actor announced the sequel on Instagram today, with director Chris Robinson confirming the news with a slightly different filter.

Where are the
boys men of ATL now? We can't wait to find out. Judging by their attire in the photo (presumably from on set), everyone is doing well. And Brooklyn hasn't stopped stubbornly representing his city.
