It’s only been a few days since Justin Timberlake made his return to the Man of the Woods Tour, and he’s already bringing out some big surprises. At his Atlanta show on Thursday night, JT brought out hometown hero T.I. for a hit-filled cameo.
T.i. initially joined Timberlake for his verse on their 2006 team-up “My Love,” making the crowd go wild. But the energy only increased as T.I. then transitioned into a medley of his own hits: “What You Know,” “Bring ‘Em Out” and “Live Your Life.” Timberlake seemed as excited about T.I.’s appearance as the Atlanta crowd was, proven by a gushing Instagram post with clips from the rapper’s surprise.
“@TROUBLEMAN31! EPIC! –Your city loves you. Thank you —-,” Timberlake captioned the videos. T.I. returned the endearment, sharing a picture of the pair on stage with the caption “Fucked it Up wit my Patna last night!!! @justintimberlake #maninthewoods tour We Went UP!!”
Timberlake resumed his Man of the Woods Tour in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6, after two months of vocal rest and not performing due to bruised vocal cords. The tour hits markets across North America — including a rescheduled Madison Square Garden show on his birthday, Jan. 31 — through April 13.
