Ti To Tell His Life Story Onscreen

Rapper TI has announced plans to star in a movie based on his life - and he promises it will be grittier than EMINEM's 8 MILE.

The BRING EM OUT rapper, real name CLIFFORD HARRIS, is currently overseeing the development of the film, which he's adamant will be a more realistic taste of the ghetto than Eminem's 2003 hit movie, which was loosely based on his life.

He says, "I think it'll be more dramatic than (8 Mile) and more action-packed.

"My trouble was a little more extreme; getting in shootouts, going to jail, selling dope. Em had domestic problems; I had ghetto problems."
