Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris was honored with the Outstanding Georgia Citizen Award presented by Rep. Debra Bazemore at the Capitol building in Atlanta this week.
T.I. was joined at the ceremony by his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, and his sons, Messiah and Domani.
"Thank God for @rep.debrabazemore63 @ambassadorpeterson @joebiden @vp & everyone else who had a hand in making this possible," he wrote on Instagram.
"I'm Genuinely Grateful for these prestigious honors... & While I don't know exactly what they mean specifically... it sure feels good to have em."
"In the grand scheme of things, we are only here on Earth in this life for a short period of time, and once we leave, people won't remember the clothes we wore or the things we have. We will only be remembered by what we meant to our family, our children and what we were able to do for others."
T.I. was honored for giving back through his Harris Community Works and For the Love of Our Fathers organizations. "Life is way too short to try to not make this world a better place," he said.
T.I. also received the Volunteers Achievement Lifetime Award presented by the Global International Alliance on behalf of President Joe Biden, honoring his 4,000+ hours of community service to the community.
