  • T.I. recently shared his thoughts on the current state of hip-hop during an appearance on Shaquille O’Neal’s podcast, noting the abundance of talent but also the overcrowded nature of the industry.
  • He compared the music scene to opening the doors of an arena and inviting anyone to play basketball. “Come on out the stands out here to the floor. Here go you a jersey, man. Get in the game,’” said Tip.
