Talk about putting on for your community! T.I. recently revealed that him and Tiny are adding developers to their resume. The married duo are reportedly building an affordable housing unit in Bankhead, which is located in Atlanta, Georgia.
In a live video shared to his Instagram account, T.I. pulls up to an active construction site. He steps out of his vehicle and begins to walk the front of the partially complete structures while explaining what viewers are looking at. T.I. said the mixed-use community is about 40% complete and should be ready for tenants sometime next year. Once finished, the community will provide 143 living spaces (units).
“Since everybody so much from here, let’s see what you done did for here you dig,” T.I. challenged in the video. “I ain’t finna do no whole bunch of jaw-jacking, imma show mine.”
He continued on to say that the community is the couple’s first project as developers and they’re feeling “proud of it.”
A New Bankhead Community
The new Bankhead apartments will also provide access to community centers, a greenhouse and a community garden for tenants. Apparently, T.I. picked a location with a special connection to his Bankhead upbringing.
“This is the same K-Mart that me and my grandmama use to come here…buy bike parts and sh*t out of,” T.I. said. “The same grocery store my grandmama use to come and buy fruits, vegetables and all our groceries, fruit roll-ups and sh*t like that for me.”
The video shows several standing structures, but mainly thick, red beams. T.I. doesn’t go into details about the price point of the “affordable” dwelling spaces. He also doesn’t explain the qualification process or anything similar –including the name of the community. However, he made sure to address any potential shade about his work in his old stomping grounds.
“I got love for everybody over here, but if anybody got anything to say about me, sh*t man, don’t look at me look at my work,” T.I. said. “Don’t look at me, look at my work. Look at my moves. Sh*t we can kill all the cap.”
