T.I. Signs With United Talent Agency

UTA will take care of the rapper's non-music endeavors.

Published May 3, 2013

T.I. has a new deal to celebrate. The Grand Hustle leader signed to United Talent Agency, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

UTA will overlook all areas of the 32-year-old's career, except music. Additionally, the Atlanta native will continue to be managed by Category 5 Entertainment's Brian Sher, for film and television projects.

Tip, aka Clifford Harris Jr., released his first album over a decade ago, and has made a seamless transition into the acting world. His first film credit was 2006's ATL, followed by gigs in American Gangster, Takers and most recently Universal Picture's Identity Theft.

The flick, starring Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman, debuted at No. 1 earning $37 million in its first week.

On the T.V. side of things, Tip landed a role in season two of Kelsey's Grammar's Starz drama Boss, and stars in the VH1 reality series T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle. Now in its third season, the show follows the multi-Grammy winner's daily life alongside his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, and their six children.

Building an acting resume doesn't mean the self-proclaimed "King of the South" has shunned the rap game. He's due to hit the road with Lil Wayne on the America's Most Wanted music tour this summer, and is prepping the release of a Hustle Gang mixtape.
