T.I., or Tip as her prefers to be called these days, turns 35 today. In celebration of his birthday, Hustle Gang’s commander-in-chief heads to the west side in the video for “Broadcast Live” off his surprise EP Da’ Nic. The clip opens with Tip sitting on a stoop eating pineapple before riding through Bankhead while sporting a Bankroll Mafia tee. After grabbing a bite at Bankhead Seafood, he and his homie eventually join in the Westside Day festivities.
Tip recently left Columbia Records and inked an independent deal with Empire Distribution. While he fields major label offers, he is working on his 10th album Da Dime Trap and recently teased a collaboration with Jay Z.
“It’s a perfect time to make a change,” Tip told the AP. “It’s refreshing to be back on the grind like ‘nose to the grindstone’ and being back in the trenches.”
