The songbird says that he has officially changed his name to Tip, a move that's been in the making for almost a decade now.

In an interview with Big Von on 106 KMEL this week, the hitmaker explained the switch is all for the fans who have followed him since day one.
For those of you who may not remember, the 34-year-old went by Tip when he was first starting out, but settled for T.I. because it was too similar to Q-Tip, who was also signed to Arista Records at the time.
But now, he's decided the timing is right for him to get back to the way it all began, and his EP Da' Nic is his first project under the new name.
Ch-ch-check out Tip explain his evolution in the full interview (below)!
Wow. It's hard to believe it's been 14 years since that fateful day in New York City.

In case you didn't know, Indiana recently passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act allowing employees to discriminate against people in the LGBT community, and others, on religious grounds. So, before performing T.I.'s Live Your Life, RiRi gave the people a piece of her mind and they were in agreement!
The singer asked the crowd about the "new bullsh*t laws," and they all responded as any decent human would, by saying, "F*ck that sh*t." (below)
That wasn't the only HIGHlight of her performance though. Rihanna also debuted the entire version of her new song American Oxygen, which we've only heard snippets of during the tournament. And despite some obvious technical issues, she sounded like perfection!
Ch-ch-check out the queen slay the stage in so many ways (below)!
