T.I. sat down with The Breakfast Club this morning and talked about about a wide variety of issues including his kids, artists on his label, movies, clothing line, reality show, etc. He also expressed a desire to exit the rap game because it has become watered down and doesn't represent what it used to.
"This is what everybody fails to realize... I want out," Tip said. "What the game has evolved into from a personality standpoint, it goes against what I represent. What I embody this game contradicts that, so I want out. I'm in it because I love music and I have obligations contractually. It was at one time this music was about speaking to the people who felt like you feel. Now the people I'm speaking to don't necessarily feel like I feel. In my day if you were rapping about something that you really weren't living that was a strike against you and you were held accountable. Nowadays nobody even expects you to live up to the things you rap about. So if they outsell me then that's just all the more better for me to fade to the back and cross my legs on my desk."
There is a lot more to the interview so peep it below.
