T.I. is about to become an Atlanta restaurateur.

The ATL rapper has purchased Vibe Restaurant & Lounge (located at 30 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd in Atlanta), which he plans to renovate and rename Club 925, according to Sandra Rose. XXL Mag confirms that T.I. is looking to break into the restaurant business:

“According to a press release, Tip has acquired a landmark building in Downtown Atlanta, which he plans to convert into an upscale restaurant specializing in Southern Cuisine.”

LA Weekly restaurant critic Besha Rodell makes a good point here:

All we know is, we’d like to see some “little bitty shrimp dimps” on the menu, whatever those happen to be. We’d also like to see a Stacks on Deck, Patron on Ice lunch special.

Hopefully T.I. is more successful in the restaurant game than Ludacris, who closed down Straits, his Atlanta Singaporean restaurant, in 2012 after four years in business. We’re assuming T.I. has come a long way since this questionable restaurant behavior.
