Atlanta-based superstar rap impresario Clifford “T.I.” Harris Jr. is reportedly in arrears to the Internal Revenue Service to the tune of over $4.5 million.
The Grand Hustle boss owes a grand total of $4,570,759.86 in unpaid taxes, the Daily Mail reports. The right-wing conservative blog Breitbart took pleasure in noting that Tip owes this money despite supporting President Obama, who allegedly raised taxes on wealthy folks like T.I.
According to the Mail, Harris is facing two federal tax liens from the IRS, as the the federal government seeks to collect $1,397,283.47 from Harris for 2012 and $3,173,476.39 in unpaid personal income taxes in 2013.
It is not like “The Rubber Band Man” doesn’t have the ends to reconcile this debt. T.I. is worth an estimated $215 million, the publication reported. He has recorded nine albums with Atlantic Records and has been featured in several films and television shows, most notably the urban classic “ATL” opposite Lauren London and Big Boi of the legendary group OutKast. Harris owns an Atlanta nightclub called Club Crucial, deemed one of the most popular in Atlanta, plus restaurants including the newly opened Scales 925, and three clothing companies.
Because of the tax lien, some of his most expensive possessions and toys could be subject to being seized, including his $4 million suburban Atlanta home and his luxury whips, including a Ferrari F430 Spider and Bentley Mulsanne.
