In case you were on the fence about whether or not to get tested for HIV, perhaps an appearance by T.I. will help you make your decision. The multi-platinum ATL rapper and King of the South will be at the Martin Luther King Jr. Family Clinic, 2922-B Martin Luther King Blvd. in Sunny South Dallas today. The appearance is in support of Dallas' Hip Hop for HIV campaign, which Unfair Park mentioned last week.
T.I. is scheduled to meet with attendees and sign autographs from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Testing started at noon and continues until 6 p.m.
The Hip Hop for HIV concert will be 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. September 14 on the steps of Dallas City Hall and will feature such luminaries as David Banner, Mike Jones, Bun B, Day 26, Pleasure P, Young Berg, Trap Star and more. –Jesse Hughey
