T.I. Says His Akoo Clothing Line Has ‘Upscale Urban Appeal’

'Everything is gonna be comfortable, casual,' Tip tells MTV News.

NEW YORK — Just like his song “I’m Back” promises, [artist id="1225081"]T.I.[/artist] is back to business — all aspects of business. He has a film and album coming out in August, and the King of the South just finished an extensive shoot for his clothing line, Akoo, with guest Donnis.

“The direction of the clothing line, in my eyes, is upscale urban apparel,” Tip said, sitting in the Ace Hotel. “I just wanna continue to diversify. Continue to grow. Continue to speak to the cool kids of America. That’s my idealistic outcome.”

Tip, Donnis and a slew of beautiful women were showing off the company’s fall lines.

“It’s all gonna be comfortable,” Tip said of his clothes. “Everything is gonna be comfortable, casual. To me, we got V-neck tees, crew-neck tees, wovens. Denim is a big part of the lines. We actually pride ourselves on the quality of our denim, especially at the price point we at. We got fleece. We got a lot of imagery, distinctive imagery on our pieces, that sets us apart from everything else going on out there.”

Tip even showed off one of the Akoo bags, like the one he gave Larry King last week while visiting his show .

Tip’s new album, King Uncaged, comes out August 17, while his film “Takers” drops August 20. Meanwhile, his Gangsta Grillz tape, F— a Mixtape, is tentatively slated to come out around May 25, according to DJ Drama’s Twitter. The tape is in conjunction with Dram and DJ MLK.
