T.I. hosted an event coined K.I.N.G. Camp directed at uplifting young urban youth on yesterday (July26). I had the opportunity to attend the closing ceremonies of the event called “A KING Tribute” where the kids were given several awards for outstanding achievement during the summer camp. The awards included accolades in conduct, leadership, sportsmanship, and academic achievement. Ambassodor Andrew Young and Mayor of Atlanta Kasim Reed were also present. The idea of the camp was to take the kids from their current mind frames to future leaders in the community.  After completing a 12 week summer camp, all the campers recieved certificates and laptops as a gift from T.I.P.

One of the young men even broke down, prompting T.I. to console him. He let him know that even though he made mistakes, it was ok, because he was still a KING. Check out the pics below.

  1. MY SON IS IN ONE OF THE PHOTOS ABOVE. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAYN THANK YOU AGAIN TIP FOR ALL THAT YOU HAVE DONE.MY SON IS REALLY INJOYING HIS LAPTOP.

  2. I can comment when it’s something negative so I will comment on the good. Good to see Rappers doing good, giving something back & being positive. Much respect to TIP.

  3. I like when celebs give back to the kids. It’s a good look. Heck all grown ups were kids before. Especially kids who need male role models. Sometimes it takes someone who has bumped their head a few times to let you see what hard work and walking the right path can do. I wish we could see more of this! And honestly I think it is more fufilling to the person doing the good deed than the kids. It just makes you feel good to help someone especially when they appreciate it.
