What does T.I have in common with Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Brittney Spears? If you guessed Las Vegas residency, you are correct! That’s right, the Atlanta rapper and reality television star landed a monthly residency at Drai’s nightclub, a club well known for hosting performances from Big Sean, the Weeknd, Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj to name a few.
“Tip is an exceptional entertainer and addition to the Drai’s Live series,” Michael Gruber, president and partner of Drai’s Enterprises, said in a statement. “A reigning figure in the music industry and beyond, we are thrilled for what’s in store with his performances and we look forward to welcoming him into the Drai’s family.”
This news comes a week after T.I announced to the world that he not only is the newest co-owner to Jay-Z’s streaming service Tidal, but has also signed a distribution deal with Roc Nation, on which his 10th album, Dime Trap will be released.
Though only three months in, 2016 has already proved to be quite busy, yet successful year for the Family Hustle star. With the anticipation of his baby girl who is expected to arrive on April 20th, this seventh addition (Lucky #7) to the Harris clan may just be his lucky charm.
T.I’s sin city gig will officially begin with an opening performance this Saturday, March 5th. Additional dates are scheduled as follows: April 8, May 6, June 10, and July 8.
