Thursday - March 30, 2006

According to early reports, T.I.'s King album is on pace to become the year's biggest first-week seller to date with numbers heading past 500,000 copies.
With lead single "What You Know" in heavy rotation and T.I. making his motion picture debut in ATL this weekend, King (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/8398), his fourth solo set, is expected to land atop the Billboard album charts next week.
Word is the album may sell well over 500,000 units should Warner Music (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/8635#) Group fix major stock and distribution problems in a timely fashion. The album would put Tip in a position to score his first multi-platinum release. The Atlanta rapper already has two platinum efforts under his belt, 2003's Trap Muzik and 2004's Urban Legend (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/8635#). He also dropped his debut I'm Serious in 2001.
In related news, T.I. is starring in ATL, a coming of age story set in the crunk capital. Directed by Chris Robinson and executive produced by Will Smith, the flick (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/8635#) also stars Big Boi, Lauren London, Keith David (Dead Presidents, Clockers) and Mykelti Williamson (Forrest Gump, Ali). ATL's L.A. premiere takes places tonight while the movie (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/8635#) opens nationwide this Friday.
T.I.'s King is in stores now.
