JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The City of Jackson has announced that the key to the City of Jackson will be presented to rapper, Clifford "T.I." Harris on Wednesday.

While in Jackson, he will be helping to raise awareness on key issues with youth in the metro area. 

T.I. will be delivering a message wrapped around the basic principles of being safe, being productive, and being better.

The American rapper and entrepreneur will focus on galvanizing youth in several Jackson Public Schools to avoid making the same mistakes that he once made.

His awareness tour will end at Forest Hill High School at 2pm. According to the city, T.I. is committed to continuing his "road to redemption", an effort that was sparked by his passion to see kids progress and develop positively.

The City of Jackson will present T.I. with the key to the city for his unwavering dedication to seeing youth and young adults become positive influences within the community. 

The ceremony will be on Wednesday at 9:30 am and will feature Mayor Tony Yarber, Sherriff Tyrone Lewis, and the Sonic Boom of the South.

The City of Jackson, in partnership with the Hinds County Sherriff's Office, has committed to support T.I.'s message not only to raise awareness about safe living and productivity, but through a collective mission to eliminate crime in our communities.

T.I.'s message of safe, positive, and progressive living is a testament to the mission of National Night Out, which is an annual initiative held within the city.

This year, the City of Jackson & the Hinds County Sherriff's Office have committed to "giving crime a going away party" together!

According to the City of Jackson, this is the first time that both agencies have completely partnered in their efforts to raise awareness about crime prevention and create a safer living environment. 

The National Night Out Kick-Off event is Thursday from 5pm till 9pm at the Mississippi Agriculture Museum.
