I work at a restaurant in LA he has come in multiple times I’ve stood right next to the guy and talked to him. He literally came in yesterday. I’m 5’9 on the dot, he stood pretty much the exact same height as me maaaaybe like a half inch shorter but not noticeably shorter, no way this guys 5’8 or shorter.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/May/20
I'd say more like 9.5"-9.75" range than 10".
Aidan strong 5'10 said on 23/May/20
he wears a size 9.5 shoe
mrtguy said on 27/Apr/20
Rob, he has a pretty big head for his height like 10'' or very close
Editor Rob
Wouldn't have thought quite as big as 10 inches for him.
Nik said on 26/May/18
He can look anywhere from 5'7" - 5'8"! I will offer T.I. 5'7.5"!
Dat dude said on 25/May/18
These days he looks just a little below 5ft 8 and weighs 160 pounds soaking wet

Rob I've seen T.I. in person from a distance walking to his Truck coming out of a club in hollywood. He did not appear more than 5'7 max. my guess is the 5'6'5'7 range.
KH said on 20/Sep/17
If he is 5'8 he must be one of the smallest (buildwise) 5'8 guys on the planet. He looks like he wieghs about 130lbs.

Yes, they really do.
MD said on 17/Apr/16

Big Sean (5.7.5") may have a bit of a footwear advantage, here (Click Here), but don't these pictures show that he's certainly not any taller than Big Sean?

He's not 5'8".
Editor Rob
they do look a similar range
Allen said on 25/Nov/15
I believe he is about 5 8 or close too it and probably 5 9 with shoes.

from that one shot, he may not be over 5ft 6 range, but I'd need to see more of them
kd said on 23/Oct/15
I did time with tip in forrest city ar in federal low i am 5 8 he is shorter than me by almost two inches it is understandable that he would want to exagerate his size but he is short and rather skinny though he did bulk up a bit during his stay in prison i would say his actual height is 5 6 maybe a hair under
Adam said on 12/Jul/13
He can't be 5'9. In the video for "Blurred Lines" he is dwarfed by 5'9 Pharrell Williams. He's 5'7 max.
Selena said on 14/Jun/13
he looked a lot shorter than 5'9 Pharrell in the 'Blurred Lines' video

I think 5'8 is doing a bit too much
Tony Adaigbe said on 8/May/11
T.I is between 5ft 6 to 5ft 7.Some1 dats 5ft 9 will be at least reach Chris Brown at his ear,but T.I is not up to Chris' ear.I dont think so.
Matt said on 3/Feb/09
I always thought he was about 5'7 but then I came across this picture

Click Here

With what...supposedly 6'0 50 cent

I know T.I. is closer to the camera, but he doesnt make 50 look 6'

Or 50 makes him look taller, either way..
scata said on 21/Dec/08
No taller than 5'5. You can tell by his build.
Diamond15 said on 18/Dec/08
Ok im here to clear this ti issue up.. he is not 5'9 he is not 5'8 but he is in deed 5'7. Im 5'9 1/2 and i have met tip on several occassion and he's not growing any taller as a matter of fact i wish he was but .. he does wear TIMS and we all know specific shoes add height.. he's a boot guy so he may "appear" taller to some but my boy is 5'7 period... no 5'6 no 5'8 and definetly not my height 5'9..
Gee said on 16/Dec/08
Ti should be 5'8 like rihana in their new video,they stand nxt 2each otha and ri is in heels and beats his height just alytle wile he on sneakerz so on flats rihana should b same heite as ti
T.Y. said on 12/Nov/08
5'8" is Short man, Me myself is 6'6"
but all the rappers are quite short, look at us ballers! We are Tall! though T.I is the best rapper ever!
Armen said on 9/Sep/08
I think he is 5'9 at least. Maybe even 5'10 with shoes on. He looks pretty tall when he stands next to people that are listed at 5'8-5'10. At the VMAs he was like 2 inches off Rihanna and that's good because Rihanna is like 6 feet tall with those heels on. I say 5'9 minimum.

Look and this picture with Ludacris standing next to T.I.

T.I had to stretch his arm up to put his arm around Luda. If this doesn't prove T.I. to be 5'6 i dont know what does.
Bablo said on 28/Sep/06
T.I is about 5'7 it's is long head that makes him look 5'9 no offence though he is a good rapper.
O-town said on 26/Sep/06
He is either 5-8 or 5-9!!! thats final!! ppl keep saying he shorter and shorter was next yall will be saying he 5-2.
Viper652 said on 7/Sep/06
He cant be 5-8 or 5-9. 6-0 Michael Vick has him by 5 inches.
Anonymous said on 17/Aug/06
he is like 5'9 or 5'8 i met him. he's skinny as hell though, he probally wieghs about 130
80's Man said on 26/Jul/06
Because T.I. has stated "5'8" or 5'9" i can only assume hes no taller than 5'8". Anyways he looks between 5'7" and 5'8" due to his build and he also looks this in the pic with michael vick.

MD said on 22/Jun/06
I'll post this again:

Even though as Rob has pointed out there is a tilt to this photo, 5'10" P. Diddy still towers over this guy. This is obviously more than 1.5 inch difference. This guy is nothing over 5'7.5" period.
Aj said on 21/Jun/06
T.I is shorter than 5.8, i went to a club in London, called The Penthouse and T.I was there and i was chatting with him for a little while then he went off, and he is SHORT! im short myself (5'5) and he has got to be 5'6 MAX! we were at the same level. Seriously there is no way he is taller than 5'6. without shoes i'd say hes like 5'5
dishanna harris said on 12/Jun/06
was up T.i is my biological brother and he is 5 ft 9 inches
5'10chick said on 11/Jun/06
i think he is 5'8 but not no 5'6 , he is either 5'7 and up but below 5'9 and a half
MD said on 19/May/06
Yeah, he has a long torso, but this legs are really short.
MD said on 17/May/06
He's anywhere between 5'6" and 5'8" not 5'8" and 5'10". Why is he still shown over 5'8"?
JE said on 17/May/06
I met T.I. personally after the miami game last night at an after-party and there is no way he is 5'9. I'm only 5'10 and he was at least 2 inches shorter than me.
A D said on 16/May/06
T.I. is 5-9 145 pounds. if u heard his last album you would know that by now.

Editor Rob
if you read the quote on this page below this comment, the guy doesn't even know his own height ;-)
MD said on 3/May/06
Rob, are you going to take him down, yet? I mean, even if the New York Times underestimated his height a little bit, we have all of the picture proof to prove that he's at least only 5'7". He's exactly the same height as 5'7" Big Boi:

1. Click Here

Again, here is P. Diddy (5'10") just towering of him. Definetely, more than 2"

2. Click Here

He needs to be brought down, at list, a full inch.

Editor Rob
there's a tilt in the picture with diddy, 6 degrees, check the doorframe...since he doesn't seem to know his own height, he might be 173...there's lots of pics on wireimage aswell of this guy
MD said on 18/Apr/06

Look at the photo I recently posted of Mario and Quddus. It shows their feet, and shows that the picture you have below of the two is greatly distored. Quddus has at least 2" full inches on Mario.

Editor Rob
yes, I've looked at all the pics of m/q, it goes to show how he can have laid back posture and look 5ft 10 but then you can make him look easy 6ft...I don't think he's far from that mark, 5ft 11.5 isn't out of the question but then J said he seen the guy looking in 6ft range!...I know xaoi and I had argued about this guy a lot in the past. Arguing down 1cm at a time for him...

As for t.i, I again looked at all the pics and would say 173cm might be closer to the truth...although 174 hmm, look at the comment on mario page 30 mar 05, I originally guessed the ti bloke at 172cm then thought he was tricky and had left him at his own quote (i.e tricky, being posture at times)...
MD said on 17/Apr/06
I knew the guy was smaller than the 5'9". But, just over 5'6" would be 5'6.25" to 5'6.5".

Rob, 5'8.5" is still being way too generous. You need to take him down at least another half-inch.

Again, 5'10" P. Diddy just drawfs him.

1. Click Here

Again, he's the same height as 5'7" Big Boi who is also listed, here.

This last photo also shows that Mario listed here, as well, is not the 6'0" this site gives him, either.

Maybe, some are fooled by his super-skinny build, which can give the apperance of being taller, but T.I. really is nothing much over 5'7" at the very most, and I believe that to be in shoes.

Editor Rob
yes, there's not much between ti and boi...but maybe I should give back boi 1/2 inch ;-)

but with that diddy there's a tilt in the picture, how much you could argue, but do a 6 degrees counter-clockwise rotation in photoshop and this might get closer to the actual perspective.

we've seen mario laid back looking 5ft 10 but then he can look 6ft...he could be 5ft 11 mind you, mario debate is still open...

ti with vanessa minnillo in heels, if he's 5ft 6 what's she? I could buy 5ft 8 for ti and mario 5ft 11.5 ;-)
xaoxio said on 16/Apr/06
I've wanted to say that T.I. can be shorter than 5'9" listing but as I see you've downgraded him slightly. Can he be shorter than this? In photos with Will Smith he doesn't look a proper 5'9"-footer.
Chris said on 13/Apr/06
5'6" Confirmed - Its in his NY Times article 4/12/2006 - "If I do a video, I have you four minutes," said the rapper, who stands just over 5 feet 6 inches. "If I do a movie, I have you two hours, and I'm 20 feet tall.

ceo757 said on 12/Apr/06
I just checked out A.T.L. and Big Boi is listed as 5'7 and in the movie him and T.I. where the same height so T.I. is in that range if not shorter.
dee said on 24/Mar/06
T.I lies constantly!
(1) The guy is no where close to being 5'9! (2)Im from Atlanta, and know for a fact that he's not from Bankhead...he's from Riverdale! He went to Riverdale High School in Atlanta, which is no where close to Bankhead, neither is it anywhere close to any hood! (3) he didnt go to jail off deug charges...i dont care how much money you have, you cant get out of jail for a show, and go back in after the show. Jails dont give out field trips! (4) He's not a 7 time felon like he says...3 strikes in GA and your gone for good!
MD said on 19/Mar/06
Editor Rob, do you want to review this one now? TI is 5'9" in boots at the very most, and more like 5'8" or 5'7."

Here he is with Trick Daddy (middle, back). Even if both straighten up it's clear that Trick Daddy (5'9") is still considerably taller than TI:

And here he is with Vanessa Minnillo, who I'm pretty sure is like 5'8" in her heels:

Mrs.TIP said on 25/Nov/05
I met him in Baskin Robins and i went crazy cause he my favorite rapper and he is the only rapper on my wall no other celebrity and he is about that height
F-ICP said on 17/Nov/05
I've seen him in concert, he's like 5'8" with his shoes on, I think he's 5'7" tops like other people on here, usually when a rapper has to claim their height because they're so short they're usually rounding up...
nae said on 27/Oct/05
t.i iz around 5'6 5'7 i've seen him in concert
James said on 13/Oct/05
Yeah, he say in "Motivation" he's 5'9". That's not small, that's average. Cuz it's said that the average male is 5'9". These days for a man, 5'5", and 5'6" is short. But in terms of weight, T.I. is pretty small. He's not really built, I dont think he works out.
Trickle said on 4/Oct/05
J., when they said he was "small", they probably meant his weight, not his height. He said in his song, "motivation" he was 5'9, but he might have exagerrated.
Diplomat said on 19/Aug/05
TI is 5'9 like J said. And that is not considered short these days. Im 5'5 and thats short
bmp said on 11/Aug/05
T.I is not 5 ft 9, at ost he is 5 ft 7
J. said on 7/Aug/05
I agree Maria, the more I see him, the shorter he looks. Also, according to the hip hop gossip world, he and rival Lil Flip got into a fist fight earlier this year and people remarked on how well T.I. fights for someone so 'small'. Since when is 5'9" referred to as so 'small'? ...Makes me wonder.
J. said on 30/Mar/05
Rob, are you sure???? I think he's 5'10". Do you have any pics?
