In celebration of Black Music Month, T.I., whose fourth album King hit gold in its first week of release, will perform his first solo concert for one night at the Apollo Theater.

The event will take place June 1 at 7:30 p.m. and 11 p.m.

T.I. also recently kicked off his nationwide King tour at Tennessee State University, with support from Grand Hustle/Atlantic labelmate Young Dro and Yung Joc of Block Entertainment/Bad Boy South.
