Atlanta rapper T.I.P. Harris (T.I) settled with employees from his former restraurant for $75,000 in unpaid wages.

Harris settled with 9 of 11 employees from Scales 925 for $8,333.33 each in unpaid money, totaling about $75,000. 

In addition to the unpaid wages, T.I. will have to pay about 25,000 in attorney fees.

Former employees claimed they were forced to work off the clock and that their paychecks bounced.

T.I. claims he was not a part of the daily operations and that his business associate Charles Hughes mishandled the managing duties of the restraurant. 

Located on the corner of Ivan Allen Jr Blvd and West Peachtree St., Scales 925 opened in 2015, serving southern-styled cuisine.

The eatery was closed in 2016 while it was facing eviction.
