Rapper T.I. marked his 36th birthday by looking back on a time when people didn’t think he would make it to the age of 21. The Atlanta rapper shared an adorable young photo of himself on Instagram, and thanked those who believed in him even though it may not have been easy.
He captioned the throwback picture, “I remember when they said I wouldn’t make it to see 21… And I remember WHY too!!!! I was Bad…”

T.I. has had a long history of trouble with the law, but these days he has a lot to celebrate. He welcomed a new baby girl with his wife Tiny earlier this year, he has a hit family reality show on VH1, and he has become a positive voice for change. Most recently, he released a six-track EP titled Us or Else, which addresses police brutality.
