Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG NEW YORK, NY -- Grand Hustle/Atlantic recording artist T.I. garnered a remarkable 5 trophies at the 2006 Billboard Music Awards, held last night in Las Vegas. T.I. dominated the Rap category, winning for "Rap Artist of the Year," "Rap Album of the Year" (for "KING"), "Rap Songs Artist of the Year," "Rap Album Artist of the Year," and "Videoclips Artist."

T.I.'s Billboard Music Awards triumph -- which follows the ATL-based superstar's supremacy at last month's BET Hip-Hop Awards -- comes just days in advance of Grand Hustle/Atlantic's eagerly awaited mix CD, "GRAND HUSTLE PRESENTS: IN DA STREETZ VOLUME 4." The collection is the first traditional retail release of the mix series which began back in 2002 and quickly catapulted T.I. to legendary street status. "GRAND HUSTLE PRESENTS: IN DA STREETZ VOLUME 4" drops in stores on December 19th.

The compilation's lead single is T.I.'s "Top Back (Remix)," featuring Young Jeezy, Young Dro, Big Kuntry and B.G. (see attached track listing). "GRAND HUSTLE PRESENTS: IN DA STREETZ VOLUME 4" also features appearances by a wide range of hip-hop luminaries -- including Young Dro, Yung Joc, and P$C members Macboney and Big Kuntry King -- along with such up-and-coming Grand Hustle sensations as Governor, Xtaci and the "Grand Hustle Muscle," Alfamega.

Passing the half million mark in its first week with a SoundScan total of 521,702, T.I.'s "KING" made a triumphant #1 debut on the Billboard 200 album chart. In addition, the album was also #1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, #1 on the Top Rap Albums chart, #1 on iTunes, and #1 on the Top Digital albums chart. "KING" marked the biggest first-week sales for an Atlantic artist in the 15-year history of the SoundScan retail tracking system.
