T.I. will replace Ludacris as the Live @ Veishea headliner. According to a news release, scheduling conflicts are to blame for the switch in entertainers.

“Ended up being a scheduling conflict. He had another deal he had to follow through with,” said entertainment chair of Veishea Mitchell Kenne.

When Veishea found out, Ludacris’ agency offered other options as a replacement which lead to T.I..

“When we found out … his agency just offered up some other ideas to replace him with,” Kenne said. “They offered up T.I. and we thought it was the best choice.”

T.I., real name Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., released his first record “I’m Serious” in 2001 through Arista Records and followed up with “Trap Muzik” in 2003 through Grand Hustle Records and “Urban Legend” in 2004.

T.I. is known for his popular singles “Bring Em Out,” “Dead and Gone” and recently “Whatever You Like.”

Beyond music, T.I. starred in movies “ATL,” “Takers” and “Identity Thief.”

Recently T.I. signed to Columbia Records and plans to release a new record this year.

Big Boi – King Sh!t (feat. T.I. & Ludacris & Kito & Reija Lee)

Another week, another Big Boi remix, sorry that you had to miss out last weeks, but the 7th installment is here today, and its definitely something to check out. Big Boi returns today with a brand new remix in which we get the track “In The A” matched up with something completely different, Reija Lee’s “Run For Cover”, which makes for something quite dope.

The tracks get brought together brilliant for the latest remix, and while there are still two to go, this is by far my favorite out of the bunch. Not only do we get to hear from Big Boi, but T.I. and Ludacris also hop on the track, making for something unique and quite infectious. Whatever you do today, don’t sleep on this shit. Check out the track after the jump and speak on it down below.StupidDope.Com

Miguel, T.I. Close Out NBA All-Star Saturday With Club Show: Live Review

The night of NBA All-Star Saturday (Feb. 15) in New Orleans featured a handful of star-laden after-parties, with TNT’s gathering at the Bud Light District next to the New Orleans arena including a set by Kid Rock and GQ’s All Star soiree playing host to the Roots, Juvenile and reigning league MVP LeBron James, among others. The downtown club Howlin’ Wolf continued its Cliffhanger All-Star Concert Series on Saturday with one of the best performance lineups in town, as T.I. and Miguel performed to a room of less than 1,000 people, with mixed results.

T.I. took the stage well after 3:00 am after strolling into the middle of the club halfway through Miguel’s set and watching the R&B star alongside his entourage. Wearing a yellow hoodie and a Cleveland Cavaliers cap, the Grand Hustle rapper rolled through tracks like “Top Back,” “Rubber Band Man” and “Ball,” the latter track conjuring his highest amount of enthusiasm.

After teasing his forthcoming album “Paperwork: The Motion Picture,” Tip treated the audience to new track “I Ain’t Going” 20 minutes into his set, telling the crowd that he wanted to gauge their reaction to the intense cut. One song later, however, T.I. was off the stage — the MC deserted the show to the tune of a “What You Know” instrumental, with nary an explanation.
