T.I.: Hip Hop Is About What You See in The Hood

Posted by Fara Kearnes on June 21, 2007 3:41 PM |

T.I.Rapper T.I. has a few words for those who criticize hip-hop lyrics, arguing that it's only reflecting what's happening in the neighborhood streets. He tells Blender magazine, "You can't put someone in the jungle all their lives and then when they get an opportunity to get out, you're critiquing them for acting like they from the jungle."

"Do I think standards could be raise? Of course. Do I think hip-hop artists and record executives could be more responsible? Of course," he says. "But in order for you to expect them to act like they not from the jungle, you should of come and got them 20 years ago. Oprah might be a little too old or a little too rich to relate to that."

When asked if he thought rappers used the word ho too much, T.I. says "There are ho's out there. Ho means when you exploit yourself and your body, exchange sexual favors for currency. It's a personal decision a woman has to make. Can't no man put a woman shaking her ass in a music video without her permission. i just see rappers being attacked rather than related to."

As for his favorite non-hip-hop band, the rapper-father of four says it's Nirvana. "I love Nirvana. That's my all-time favorite rock band. They kept it real. The lyrics were clear as mud, but you knew what he was talking about. Not getting along with your parents? Anyone could understand that."

TI will be exploring new music on his upcoming album ''T.I. vs T.I.P.,'' which is due July 3 as well as on a nationwide tour with Ciara. "I can never go pop -- the 'hood is in me,'' T.I. told the Chicago Sun-Times. ''I'm just going for a different audience than I usually target."
