The event was held at The Royal Opera House this past Thursday (September 26).

T.I. For Upscale Magazine

tiuspacle1

Rapper/actor turned CEO and Mogul T.I. is covering the October issue of Upscale magazine. On the front cover, Tip showed his bright smile in a black leather jacket. Inside, Tip talked about issues with his former publisher, being known as a daddy and father at this point in his career, and turning down deals. Below are some highlights:

upscaleti2

T.I. had asked his music publisher, Warner Chapel, for $7 Million and they refused:

“They said, ‘Nah, no.’ And I said, ‘Ok, cool’ and we walked away amicably. And now the Robin Thicke record was the number one record in the world and I am the sole publisher because they didn’t want to cash me out. So thank you, Warner Chapel.”

On being known as a daddy and father at this point in his career:

“I guess a lot of things I’ve done in my career that I’ve gained attention for I wouldn’t have never really concluded that would’ve been a probable outcome… I guess [being known for being] a husband and a father is better than the guy with the machine guns and silencers.”

On turning down a couple million for a record deal: 

I get that from The Family Hustle and we’re not even talking managers cut, that’s just me—not Tameka—that’s just what I’m getting,” he stresses, making sure his point is felt. And it is. “I can get that on my own, I can get that on tour.”

On convincing Major to get mic’d up for the show:

“Sometimes he just doesn’t like to be fooled with, like, ‘I’m not into it today… I don’t force him to do nothing. I let [the production crew] handle that. For a while Gushers worked. He was like, ‘Ok, I’ll do one scene for a pack of Gushers and then the Gushers stopped working. One time they came and said, ‘If you come down we’ll give you five dollars’ and he said, ‘What?! I’ll give you five dollars.’”
