Celebrity Interviews

T.I. on Why He Responded To Lil Wayne Publicly + When Trap Music Goes Too Far

T.I. has made it clear since late 2016 that it’s US or Else. Politically charged after last year’s Presidential announcement of Donald Trump as our new leader, along with recent Black Lives Matter injustices, Tip released a project to inspire and motivate us all, entitled Us Or Else: Letter To The System — and he joined us on Sway in the Morning to talk all about it.

While in-studio with us, T.I talks about getting passed an old criminal mindset, along with making more than trap music and using his negative experiences to teach the youth today — he even dropped money-spending gems to inspire us all.

Last year, during the Black Lives Matter movement, Lil Wayne stirred up some controversy after his “my life matters” rant on an episode of Nightline, seeming to go against everything protesters were fighting for — and T.I. didn’t hold his tongue to check him. During his in-studio interview with us, he explained why he responded so publicly to Weezy.
