Hip-hop star T.I. lost out on a dream home because of the color of his skin, according to the rapper himself. The 26-year-old arrived with cash to buy the luxury property in his native Atlanta, Georgia, but his offer was turned down.

He tells Blender, "They wanted $2.5 million for that house over there. I was ready to pay cash. But once they saw who I was, the house wasn't for sale anymore. If you ask me it's because I'm a young black man."

T.I. adds, "I just bought a bigger house."

Live in Chi-Town? Then tomorrow maybe your lucky day to see T.I for FREE!! Not in Chicago? No worries, you can catch it live on MySpace.

Sponsored by MySpace and T-Mobile Sidekick, the concert will take place at The Riv and will be hosted by Nick Cannon. T.I. will be joined onstage by DJ GQ, and Chicago natives Lupe Fiasco and Twista. The concert will be accessible to MySpace members via the T-Mobile Sidekick page at 7-9 p.m. PST, 9-11 p.m. CST, and 10- 12 p.m. EST.
