T.I. To Join Atlanta Hawks Broadcast Team During Tonight’s Game

    As if rapping and being a reality wasn’t enough for T.I., he’s now taking on the role of sportscaster. That’s right, the Atlanta-rapper will be lending his insight to tonight’s broadcast of his hometown Hawks when they take on LeBron James and the Miami Heat. (via AP)

    While this may catch some fans by surprise, the rapper is a regular at Philips Arena (the home of the Hawks) and has a pretty deep knowledge of the NBA.

    He will join announcer Bob Rathbun and analyst Duane Ferrell to help call the first half on SportsSouth tonight, so if you’re in Atlanta or have the NBA Package, you can tune in to the broadcast, which begins at 7:30 pm EST.
