T.I. – Rappers Who Became Movie Stars
Although he professes that he has alter egos that provide him with outlets for various personas, T.I. aka Clifford Joseph Harris Jr. proved absolutely charming without any affectation at all in 'ATL,' a criminally-underrated movie about a teenager growing up in the Dirty South. Since then he’s held his own opposite Denzel Washington ('American Gangster'), Idris Elba ('Takers') and even Melissa McCarthy ('Identity Thief'), although he seems more eager to be himself these days on his popular reality series 'T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle.'
