Rose Scott and T.I. take viewers on a ride through the neighborhood, in a behind the scenes look at his revitalization efforts that come at a time when many of Atlanta’s neighborhoods are drastically changing as a result of development and gentrification.

The artist is stepping out of the spotlight and into the role of an urban developer.

Beyond the beats and lyrics, T.I. opens up about his journey growing up in one of Atlanta’s most economically challenged areas, and how his rise to stardom now allows him to give back to the community he deeply cares about.
