Looks like Clifford Harris’ luck has changed over the past year. TMZ reports on that Monday, the ATL rapper/actor wrapped up a show in St. Louis and opted to check out the Lumiere Casino. A first time poker player, Tip threw down $500 at the table. He left with close to $3000. Sounds like much more than beginner’s luck. Whether his housecleaning will lead to a side career in poker remains to be seen. However, T.I. is the master of side hustles—from books to fashion—so anything is possible.
On Monday, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle (VH1) aired fashion show footage from Tip’s men’s clothing line, AKOO, for the show’s finale episode. The episode shows Tip giving, well, tips on runway walks and set design for AKOO’s 2012 Spring/Summer Fashion Show. In behind the scenes footage, see the clip below, T.I. is also actively a part of model selection and even hosted the event. Special appearances came from Kevin Hart and T.I./Lil Wayne’s daughters’ group, The OMG Girlz.
Musically, T.I.’s Trouble Man is slated for a summer release. If he’s as lucky at album sales still as he is at poker, then his eighth studio album should be a total success.
