Multihyphenate rap star T.I. has leased a second-floor showroom space for his clothing line, AKOO, at 231 West 39th Street.

The 12-year, 9,355-square-foot lease is in a Midtown building, also known as the Contemporary Fashion Center, which recently got a brand new lobby. Asking rent for the space was $45 per square foot, the New York Post reported.

The songwriter, performer, music and film producer launched his clothing line in 2008. AKOO is an acronym that stands for “A King of Oneself.” The line is sold in several New York locations but does not have its own stores. However, the brand’s Marketing Office Is Located Across The Street from the showroom at 230 West 39th Street.
