T.I. is a man of many talents and even more hustles.
Busy with fatherhood, recording a new album, managing platinum-selling artists, auditioning for movie roles, and maintaining a thriving record label, the hip-hop veteran isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
GlobalGrind caught up with the father of six at VH1 headquarters in New York City to chat about the new season of T.I. & Tiny’s: The Family Hustle and of course his adorable kids.
With the release of his new album fast approaching, T.I. also gushed about working with Pharrell, the executive producer of his new album, as well as contacting Lady Gaga to collaboration on an inspirational song titled “New National Anthem.” Of course, T.I. confirmed he’s still trying to sign New York rapper Troy Ave to his Hustle Gang label, and he also dished about other artists he wishes he could’ve signed.
While the new season of T.I. & Tiny’s: The Family Hustle premieres on VH1 on Monday, August 25 at 9 p.m. EST, T.I.’s forthcoming album, Paperwork: The Motion Picture will drop sometime this fall.
