Rapper T.I. is exploring more than just music. The Atlanta artist will have his fourth album, "King" hit the market on March 28 later this year before soon afterwards make his film debut in "ATL" on March 31 co-starring Big Boi of OutKast.

"King" is the follow up to 2004's "Urban Legend" and will among others feature appearances from Pharrell Williams, Young Jeezy, Common, Kanye West, Paul Wall and Jamie Foxx. In "ATL", T.I. is the lead character Rashad.

The film tells the story of four teens coming of age in a working class Atlanta neighborhood where hip-hop music and roller skating rule. As the group prepares for life after high school, challenges on and off the rink bring about turning points in each of their lives. The film is loosely based on Dallas Austin and Tionne Watkins' experiences growing up in Atlanta and hanging out at a local skating rink called Jellybeans.
