T.I. is expanding his acting resume with the announcement of his joining Starz’s political drama Boss.
According to VIBE.com, Tip will join the cast for the show’s second season. Based on the first season, star Kelsey Grammer garnered a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Drama for playing Tom Kane, a Chicago mayor who is diagnosed with a degenerative neurological disorder.
In the show, the self-proclaimed “King of the South” will play a “former gangbanger with designs on a career in City Hall. He is the cousin that Darius (played by singer-songwriter Rotimi) turns to when struggling with his love for Emma (Hannah Ware), Mayor Tom Kane’s daughter, and he is the conduit between a local Alderman and the gang that is powerful enough to function as a grassroots organization in the projects.”
