Ambassador Andrew Young playfully poses with former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield during Young’s 83rd birthday celebration Sunday evening (May 17, 2015).
“I don’t think I’m going to blow out any candles,” the youthful Young quipped during a brief interview just before the event, held at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis and benefiting the Andrew J. Young Foundation.
“I’ve got a few more things on my bucket list. Enough to keep me going another 20 years.”
In addition to the guest of honor and his wife Carolyn Young (pictured above as they share a kiss), guests included Mayor Kasim Reed and his wife Sara Langford-Reed, Clifford “T.I.” Harris, Jr., film director Ava Duvernay (SELMA), Martin Luther King III, Keri Hilson, Evander Holyfield, Ludacris‘ wife Eudoxie Fabiola Agnan Bridges, comedian Chris Tucker and fiancée Cynne Simpson, Lyfe Jennings, Ryan & Marsha Glover and many more.

What’s beef? A prime example would be when Clifford ‘T.I.’ Harris and Floyd Mayweather were battling in a Vegas Fatburger over Tip’s wife, Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris, but it seems the two may have finally made amends.

T.I. hit the ‘gram’ Saturday night with a post congratulating Mayweather on his win against Manny Pacquiao with the hashtag #NeverBeenAHater.
[Sidebar: T.I. and Tiny are reportedly residing seperately after Tiny purchased her own mansion (click HERE if you missed that), so now may be the perfect time to forgive and forget.]
The rapper’s instagram post was also met with a prompt reply from Mayweather.

Clifford ‘T.I.’ Harris and up & coming rapper Kap-G appeared on CNN last night to discuss issues of racial profiling and their ‘angry rap lyrics’ with host Don Lemon.
It was just about a week ago that Tip and David Banner jumped on the remix of Kap-G’s ‘La Policia’ and in light of all the recent news of police brutality nationwide, it seems their message of rage is being heard loud and clear.

When asked about the angry message in the song, T.I. responds:
I think there is resentment… an undeniable fear that (I believe) law enforcement has for young minorities and it is reflected in their actions.
And of course that leads to angry lyrics because our music, historically has been a reflection of our circumstances.
So if you don’t like our lyrics, you must then change the circumstances that inspire them.
