8 T.I. T.I. Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., better known by his stage names T.I. and Tip, is an American hip hop recording artist and actor from Atlanta, Georgia.

T.I. is the greatest of all time period. He kills it in his music. Every other rapper these days just rap for money and the bitches.T.I. raps because that's what he lived for. 2pac and biggie sent T.I. to save hip hop. King of the south forever.

T.I. is the greatest rapper of all time because he keeps it real in his lyrics. He doesn't rap for money, cars or women, he raps because he wants to help and touch other peoples hearts and show them how his life was and how he made it to the top

T.I. makes all of these rappers on this list look like piece of cake.T.I. can murder anyone in a rap battle. Gucci, Tyler, Wayne, Tyga, Mac Miller, Kanye and all the other rappers on top of T.I. makes them look like garbage.T.I. will murder them all.

Way better than Gucci Mane. Gucci Mane can baerly speak.T.I. will make Gucci Mane look like a stupid rapper.T.I. is the greatest in the game. King of the south!
