T.I. has explored several other ventures outside of Hip Hop such as acting, and now the rap veteran is looking to embark on another new endeavor in his career. T.I. is set to join the broadcast team of his hometown Atlanta Hawks basketball team. He made an appearance with the broadcast crew on Friday night as his Hawks loss to the defending NBA champion Miami Heat.

"This was a phenomenal opportunity. I really enjoyed myself. I look forward to the next time and doing an entire game," Tip said of the broadcasting experience.

T.I., who sat between play-by-play man Bob Rathbun and analyst Duane Ferrell, described his experience at the game.

"They did all the heavy lifting. I just chimed in here and there. I have a close relationship, both personally and professionally, with a lot of the guys out there. I would love to be a part of the organization in whatever way possible if I can make a significant contribution. But there's no pressure. Baby steps."
