T.I., Young Jeezy and LL Cool J will co-host a black tie gala to honor President-elect Barack Obama's historic inauguration. “The Hip-Hop Inaugural Ball will be a fantastic gala and upscale party in celebration of Barack Obama being inaugurated President of the United States,” Russell Simmons said. “We are also recognizing the outstanding contributions of T.I., LL Cool J, and Young Jeezy in helping turn out the largest young adult vote in history.”
In related news, with a little more than a month before heading to prison for a year, T.I. is heading back to court. Lawyers for LaShon Dixon, TIPs baby momma, claim that T.I. owes $8,000 for an attorney bill. In September, T.I. was ordered to pay more than $3,000 a month to Dixon plus pay for private school and medical bills.
