T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, told Channel 2 Action News he remembers how the community struggled when he was young.
“The arts and entertainment industry in this city has been able to collaborate and, I guess, be profitable enough to offer the community so many things that are much needed,” Harris said.
Developers say the property was once a shopping center where T.I.’s grandmother used to shop for groceries.
