He’s Still KING: T.I. Speaks On East Coast DJ’s, His New Album Titles, & Family Hustle

Rapper T.I. is freed and still the KING. The Atlanta native is also making some changes with his career. T.I. has added Hip Hop Since 1978 (Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Drake), as his co-manager alongside his longtime manager and Grand Hustle label partner Jason Geter. T.I recently released his first novel Power and Beauty and is currently filming a reality show starring his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, and their children, called Family Hustle. RollingStone magazine caught up with T.I. for an exclusive interview. Below are some excerpts:

On East coast DJ’s reaction to his new single “Flexin”.

“I’ve heard some East Coast DJ’s have mediocre feeling toward ‘I’m Flexin” but that’s expected because the record’s not for y’all,” T.I. tells Rolling Stone about his first single, his voice rising a bit. “It’s for my foundation, my people. I’ll come back for y’all.”

On working on a new song with producer Pharrell Williams.

“some hip-hop rap shit. We’re just going in for four minutes rapping.”

On his new album title.

“The first of two album titles I’m debating is Kill the King because in all that I’ve gone through I’ve observed how people respond to my circumstances, and I always wonder ‘Why y’all coming at me like this?’ But I thought, ‘How do you expect them to act?'” he explains. “Life is a game of chess and the object is to kill the king. If you anoint yourself king, you have made yourself a target. The second one is self-explanatory – Trouble.”

On his TV show called Family Hustle

“I’m showing the balance between the personal and the professional,” T.I. says. “In my family, everyone has a hustle and most revolve around things that I already do, even down to my young son who wants to rap and my oldest daughter Zonnique who’s in [teen group] OMG and on the Scream Tour right now.” The series will also chronicle the growth of OMG, which also counts Lil Wayne’s daughter Reginae Carter as a member. Family Hustle premieres on VH1 on December 5th.

Take Care: Drake Explains His Album Artwork

On November 15th, YMCMB rapper Drake will be releasing his sophomore album, entitled Take Care. So far, Drake completed 19 songs for the album and is having some issues with clearing samples, which is the reason why the album was pushed back from its October 24th released date. In an interview with MTV news, Drake explained his album artwork.

“I used to stare at this world through a glass window and, like, two to three years later, I become a king in that world,” Drake said to MTV news.

“That’s who’s sitting on that album cover, that kid that’s just somehow gone from his mom’s basement in Toronto to becoming a king. “That’s what that album cover is about and there is a lot of deep thought involved in that ’cause you can go crazy doing this,” added Drake.

Back In The Studio: Lil Wayne Releasing ‘I’m Not A Human Being’ & ‘Rebirth’ Sequels

In a sit-down interview with MTV, Young Money Entertainment President Mack Maine revealed that Lil Wayne is in the studio working on tracks for a sequel to his rock album, entitled Rebirth and a follow-up to 2010’s I Am Not a Human Being LP. “He’s, like, 12 songs in, and he went crazy. He went left. He’s in Martian land right now,” Mack said of I Am Not a Human Being 2.

Maine also said that each separate album allows Weezy to showcase different artistic sides. “He gets to show his rock side, he gets to show his gangsta side and talk to the women on one side,” Mack said of the Rebirth and Carter series, respectively. “On I Am Not a Human Being, he is definitely showing some weirdo, left-brain, I’m-not-from-here type side. He can say what he wants. There are no boundaries, there are no limits.”

He captures all those different audiences, and then at a concert or a show, you bring all those different people together. You bring your Rebirth rock people, you bring your Carter people, and you bring your I Am Not a Human Being [crowd], and you have a great show. That’s why we sell out arenas every night,” added Mack Maine

As of press, there is no release date yet for I Am Not a Human Being 2 or Rebirth 2.
