Since signing his first major label record deal in 1999, rapper, producer, actor, author and entrepreneur Tip “T.I.” Harris has released nine studio albums, appeared in seven major motion pictures, published two novels and won three Grammy Awards. The rapper has seen his last seven albums reach notable success and garner critical acclaim. Alongside his work in the music industry, T.I. also owns Club Crucial in Atlanta and is the co-creator, producer and star of reality television shows T.I.‘s Road to Redemption and T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.
T.I.’s success hasn’t come without obstacles, however. In 2009, he was sentenced to 12 months in federal prison for pleading guilty to U.S. federal weapons charges and subsequently risked losing multiple major endorsements with Axe and Chevrolet, while also putting his joint record deal with Atlantic Records in jeopardy. The rapper served nine months behind bars and released his follow-up record, No Mercy, in late-2010. Despite his transgressions, the album was certified gold by the RIAA and has sold more than 590,000 copies in the United States alone.
With his rough past behind him, T.I. has gone on to release two more records in 2012 and 2014 respectively, with Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head and Paperwork. He has toured extensively in support of both albums since his short stint in prison and T.I. tickets have continually owned significant prices on the secondary market. The rapper has four dates remaining on his current run in November before he is scheduled to perform at the 96.1 Jingle Ball Concert in Duluth, Georgia on December 19. T.I. tickets continue to trickle into the secondary market and many of his shows have exceeded the $100 average.
Arguably his most commercially successful tour, 2013’s America’s Most Wanted Tour garnered some of the most expensive T.I. tickets on the secondary market to date. The tour also featured headlining acts Lil Wayne and Future, who also allowed ticket prices to balloon for their summer run of 40 dates over two months. During that tour, the average secondary price for T.I. tickets was $133.16. The most expensive stop was at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Texas on August 14, 2013, where T.I. tickets saw an average price of $205.15 and get-in price of $35.
Recently, the rapper has teased a potential joint album with fellow Atlantan artist Young Jeezy. Pending a release date, T.I. has claimed that the two have put together a string of songs over the years but conflicting schedules have hindered the record’s production. If the two were to finalize the album and embark on a subsequent tour, there is no doubt that T.I. tickets would continue to see impressive numbers on the secondary market.
Over the better part of two decades, T.I. has become one of the most dominant rappers in the game and continues to produce high-grossing records, hit singles, literature and television shows while also running lucrative business ventures in Club Crucial and his very own record label, Grand Hustle Records. It’s only a matter of time before the rapper drops his next record and continues to tour throughout the world, and TicketIQ is the best place for deals on T.I. tickets for his upcoming shows.
