Rapper to launch "Give Like a King" campaign.
T.I. is launching a new charity initiative to help homeless veterans. The King of the South has partnered with the Veterans Empowerment Organization for the "Give Like a King" campaign, which will aim to provide housing and support services for veterans, AllHipHop.com reports.
"Give Like a King" is Tip's first international charity project, but the Atlanta native has a history of being generous. Earlier this year, it was reported that he helped save the life of suicidal rocker Scott Stapp, and last year he helped talk down a man who was prepared to jump off a building.
"We have to have someone else’s back, not just our own," T.I. said in a statement.
"Give Like a King" will be officially announced at a press conference with VEO in Atlanta on Friday, Dec. 14.
