T.I. and his youngest son Major are featured in the March 2009 issue of Blender Magazine. In the issue, Tip explains his reasoning behind their name choices:
?My kids would be the best representation of what I meant to this Earth. As long as they (are) able to fulfil their dreams, then I did something right. ?I want them to have high expectations. Ambition. And what better way than through their names? If people call you King, you?ll expect more of yourself.?
Tip admits in the article to being arrested at least 32 times. The 28 year old A-Town King, who is definitely not afraid of jail, also talks about how he’ll handle his upcoming year long stint which begins in March:
?Well, that depends on the facility. Some luxuries are available in some facilities that aren?t available in others. Some facilities have a TV, but you can?t watch it ?cause cats in there wild out so much. I?ll read the Bible a lot. Biographies, magazines. I don?t really read fiction. I read for information, rather than for entertainment. I?ll talk on the phone a lot. I?ll spend a whole day on the phone, checkin? on what?s goin? on, makin? sure things are taken care of. Ain?t a lot to do.? He says his fame won?t really make much of a difference: ?People are in awe at times about who I am. I can?t believe I?m in here with T.I., but that usually goes away in about three, four days. After so long, everybody just inmates.?
He’s a real stand up dude who has grown a lot. Check out this video I received yesterday from WorldStarHipHop of Mr. Harris giving a hilarious behind the scenes tour of Atlanta. From Bankhead to West End to the AU Center…he explains it all! Check it out below:
“The money f*cked me up? It might have…but I’d rather have the money f*ck me up than the streets.”
