T.I. is featured on not one but two covers of UPSCALE magazine’s September/October 2010 issue.
Here’s a few quotes from T.I. in this month’s issue:
On the advice he’d give to young Clifford Harris:
I would say man, if you knew what I knew, you would chill out… I would tell myself you’re going to be alright later on, all you have to do is cool out, you might not see it right now, but you have a reason to fall back. I just hope that I would listen.
On his best and worst character traits:
I can manage to be arrogant or confident as well as be humble and possess a certain level of humility. I can be aggressive and I can also be mild mannered.
On his future in hip hop:
I know I still have the ability to do it, but I don’t know if I have as much passion to do it as I once did… I might find that I’m more effective in another capacity, but I won’t know if I don’t ever try. I have other talents and abilities that I may not be paying any attention to because I have this first one that I’m very fond of and I’ve grown attached to… As an artist I still would like to be better, but as an artist, I think TI has had a stellar career already.
On loyalty getting in the way of business:
If I say I’m gonna ride with you, I’m gonna ride with you. That’s personally, professionally. So even if I know that you might not be all what everyone else thinks you’re cracked up to be, I’m still gonna ride it out with you. It does get tiresome and it does get gruesome at time, but I don’t know no other way to be.
On his favorite quality in a woman:
Just having that instinct of when to take charge and when to fall back.
He looks great, doesn’t he? Finally someone is keeping it hood while bringing some class back to Hip Hop. What do you think? Feel free to join the discussions on FACEBOOK.
