Tip recently sat down with XXL for an interview where he admitted that he never pictured his life turning out positive. According to him, he always figured he would be either 6 feet under, locked behind bars, or still slingin’ crack. Luckily for T.I., that is FAR from how the family man’s life resulted in.
T.I. tells XXL Magazine:
“I thought I’d be in prison or dead or back selling crack. I came so close to getting back in the game after my first album didn’t do what it was supposed to do. I still had people to feed. I wasn’t front lines like I was at one time, but I definitely…I’m not going to talk anymore about that.”
The ATL rapper always gives hope for young kids going through the struggle that things can get better if you work hard. T.I. and Tiny’s kids are lucky to have such dope and involved parents!
