T.I. caught some flack over his cover art for his just-released album, "Trouble Man." During a recent interview, the King of the South explained the choice of artwork.
On whether or not he is indeed holding a pistol, Tip explained,Â "A metaphorical, creative, conceptual gun that represents all of the things in life that can get a man in trouble in the form of what one can consider a gun, however not a real gun."
He continued to defend the art,Â "And that was not even a real pose, that was an illustration.Â So if it was a real gun that would've just been a real gun that they drew in the hand of someone that looks very similar to T.I."
The Kang concluded,Â "But it was a drawing, there was not a gun being held in any photo shoot, anywhere and I want everybody to make sure that they know that and get that very, very clear and understood, OK."
