If there is one thing the city of Atlanta is known for other than being home to three professional sports teams, it’s being one of the biggest factories in the world of hip hop. T.I. is one of the most recognizable names in the rap world to come out of Atlanta and he is also a huge fan of the Atlanta Falcons.
On Sunday, T.I. surprised the Falcons in Flowery Branch as a special guest at training camp.
After signing some autographs for the fans and mingling with the players on the field, T.I. provided the Falcons with a little pep talk before breaking down the huddle.
We had @Tip as our special guest at practice today.

T.I. also chatted with head coach Dan Quinn.
While T.I. was signing for Falcons fans and enjoying the hometown crowd, his son, King, and nephews got to share a special moment with star wide receiver Julio Jones.
The Falcons certainly seem to have a big name in T.I. supporting them this year. They will likely take the inspiration from the rapper and use it to compete in the NFC South.
The Atlanta Falcons open the season on Sept. 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
