Rapper and businessman T.I. Harris’s personal life may be up in trouble, but his professional life is thriving. One of his businesses, The Trap Museum, has just unveiled a new exhibition entitled “Trapper of the Year,” featuring chart-topper Lil Baby.
The massive display features an art installation of the Atlantan with his “4PF” chain and a commissioned painting of the “Real As It Gets” rapper by artist Ahmed Klink.
According to its website, “Trap Music Museum is an interactive experience that uses art to showcase the rich culture of trap music, one of the most popular genres of music today. By paying homage to the inspiring trials and triumphs of today’s biggest trap stars and providing a platform for emerging artists.” Since its opening, they have created some interesting exhibitions in celebration of the various aspects of “trapping” through rap music.
In fact, last year they celebrated the “Women of Trap” and also the late great Nipsey Hussle.
“I’ve always had a love for women who were able to spit bars over a dope beat. The first time I heard Nicki Minaj’s ‘Itty Bitty Piggy’ and Cardi B’s ‘On Fleek’ they were automatically placed on my ‘Best of the Best’ list,” says Krystal Garner, general manager of the Trap Music Museum.
T.I. shared about the decision to honor Nip, “It goes without saying how prolific and just how significant of a legacy, little bro left behind so we knew for us to put together a collection of art to exhibit what this artist meant to the culture there’s no way we couldn’t do it.”
Lil Baby with his two GRAMMY nominations for his song, “The Bigger Picture” is in good company and is well-deserving of this shout-out.
