The Atlanta Hawks take on the Chicago Bulls this weekend and Tip will be performing during halftime!
This isn’t just another game! This isn’t a friendly competition. This is two eastern conference heavyweights going toe to toe!
This is Josh Smith vs. Carlos Boozer. This is… no love lost.
This is Hawks vs. Bulls. This is A-Town vs. Chi-Town.
This is different… cause this is T.I.!
It all goes down Saturday, December 22nd at 7pm, but for those of you “Troubleman” fans, there’s a special treat!
Tip will be performing at halftime and in addition to that… the first 7000 who enter the arena will get a free download of his newly released album, Troubleman: Heavy is The Head.
He’s also been gracious enough to host a VIP suite during the game and TWO lucky StraightFromTheA readers will win a pair of tickets be there “parlayin” in the suite courtesy of Tip and his Grand Hustle clique.
Wanna go to the game? If you entered in a timely manner and followed the directions you just might possible be in T.I’s VIP Suite Saturday!
