Rapper T.I. to Help Broadcast an Atlanta Hawks Game

by November 09, 2012

As part of what is surely some kind of cross-promotional stunt, Atlanta-based rapper T.I. will move from his usual courtside seat to behind the mic for tonight‘s Miami Heat/Atlanta Hawks tilt. Per Fox Sports: “With music, acting, producing, two novels and fashion under his belt, Atlanta native, T.I. will soon add NBA color commentator to his resume. When the Atlanta Hawks take on the Miami Heat Friday night at Philips Arena, T.I. will join longtime SportSouth commentator Bob Rathbun and former Atlanta Hawk Duane Ferrell as contributing sports analyst. During his debut, T.I. will participate in live game day coverage on SportSouth during the first two quarters of the Atlanta Hawks vs. Miami Heat game airing at 7:30 p.m. T.I. will be available for media prior to the broadcast from 6:45 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.”
