The love filled the room as T.I.’s closest friends and family gathered to welcome him back at the inaugural “A King of Oneself” Brunch at The Mansion on Peachtree in Atlanta during BET Hip-Hop Awards weekend. His mother and wife Tiny, rap peers Nelly, Young Jeezy, and Heavy D, and Atlanta’s mayor Kasim Reed toasted the rapper’s return at the invite-only event on Sunday.

Guests watched a screening of “Salute the King” fan-based documentary and perused the latest AKOO fashions, dining on buttermilk breaded chicken breast, goat cheese vegetable egg white frittata, skillet red-skinned potatoes, and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Nothing less for the King.
