T.I. has had many ventures aside from music. Acting has helped pay the bills for the Atlanta based artist and now food will as well.

Tip recently cut the ribbon at his brand new ATL restaurant Scales 925. It was previously announced that he would be opening a soul food themed restaurant back in January.

Scales 925, which is located at 30 Allen Plaza on Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. in the city’s downtown, is slated to officially open to the public on April 18.

A few lucky people got to get a sneak peak of the restaurant. View some photos from opening night below (via ATLPics.net):
