American rapper, T.I. first made known his intention of being known as “Tip” in 2007 when he released his critically acclaimed “T.I. vs. T.I.P.” album.
8 years after the album the rap mogul has finally made the switch from being known as T.I to being known as T.I.P.
The first project released under the new name is his 5 song EP “Da’ Nic” and in an interview with Big Von on 106 KMEL in the Bay Area, reveals that Tip is going to be the way forward.
T.I (now T.I.P) calls this new change an “evolution”.
