AK & Macboney continued their musical ambitions by performing in many talent showcases and nightclubs (throughout ATL). When AK was 15 years old, he knew that the entertainment business was the life he wanted to pursue. In 1995, when AK was 16 years old while visiting Macboney's cousin Bee house on Campbellton Rd. in Atlanta, GA he met a young street hustler known to the world today as T.I or T.I.P.
