Tip speaks on the current state of rap and the direction it's going to.
T.I. visited Power 105's the Breakfast Club and spoke on the rap game and the possibility of retirement.Â
The King of the South says the rap game isn't the same, and he wants out, but he has contractual obligations.Â
"This is what everyone fails to realize. I want out. I want out, man," he said. "What the game is going to and what has evolved into from a personality standpoint, it goes against what I represent. What I embody, this game contradicts that. I want out. Iâm in it because I love music and I have obligations, contractually." Â
"It was at one time, this music was about speaking to the people who felt like you feel. Now, the people Iâm speaking to, they donât necessarily feel like how I feel. In my day, if you were rapping about something you werenât really living, that was a strike against you. You were held accountable. Nowadays, nobody even expects you to live up to the things you rap about. That goes against what I represent, what I stand for. So if they outsell me, then thatâs just all the more better for me to fade to the back and cross my legs on my desk."
