T.I. just got another job to add to his resume.

The rapper is among 25 members tapped for a task force that will come up with a way to repurpose Atlanta’s city jail, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced on Tuesday.

Bottoms said the goal is to convert the Atlanta City Detention Center into a “multi-faceted use center for wellness and healing, skills-building, economic mobility and crime prevention.”

“This Task Force reflects strong local leadership, willing to help us progress towards a safer, and just city,” Bottoms said in a news release. “It is my hope this building will serve as an epicenter for resources, education, and training for the community. With the help of these members, I am optimistic that what is reimagined will be the future of One Atlanta.”

The task force also includes “Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta” star Scrapp Deleon, representatives from nonprofit and advocacy organizations, city officials and Atlanta residents.

Bottoms signed legislation in May to close and repurpose the jail, citing a declining number of inmates and increased operating costs. The jail has historically held violators of city ordinances and traffic laws.

“The final closure of this Detention Center symbolizes a new era for the city of Atlanta,” Bottoms said in a May news release. Shout out To T.I. for doing big things!
