Fresh off his successful mediation of the Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea Twitter feud (and we’re so glad that’s over), Atlanta’s own T.I. looks to strengthen his nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize by helping the beleaguered hometown Hawks ease tensions with their fan base.
In a 20-second promo released on the team’s website, the rapper has his arm around Hawks CEO Steve Koonin (aka Stevie K) as the odd couple tries to welcome us to hug it out at the November 1 season opener at Philips Arena. T.I. may have gotten more than he bargained for on this intervention—the look of surprise on his face when the suit-clad Stevie K throws out a “fo shizzle” at :15 is priceless.
