T.I. Discusses Trap Music, Donald Trump And Kanye West In The Latest Interview
Variety just caught up with T.I. and had the most exciting interview about trap music, Donald Trump and Kanye West. This came just ahead of the much-awaited premiere of Tip and Tiny Harris' show that's set to begin on October 22nd.
When Variety asked Tip about why he started making trap music, he answered that he just wanted to become a voice for the voiceless.
'There was a lot of party music at that time, a lot of glitz and glamor, and there was conscious music. Yes, there was music about the drug trade, but there wasn’t anything as vivid and real about the dealers, that elaborated on the life – to humanize it all in a way that “Trap Muzik” did,' Tip said.
When Variety brought up Kanye West who went to the White House to discuss some issues with president Donald Trump, they mentioned the way in which Tip had previously described Kanye's actions: repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing and more.
The magazine told T.I. to explain how he really feels about the matter and here's what he said:
'To be honest, if something good comes of it, great. But you don’t just sell out a bunch of people to get nothing done. You don’t sell out a whole generation and a whole race of people to get nothing done. '
He also said that Kanye invited him as well at the meeting, but he refused and said that he is not a politician and more experienced people should go instead of him.
