As you know, Tip has had his fair share of troubles over the years, but the rapper turned actor spoke with Hall about how he’s learned from his mistakes over the years and hopes to share that wisdom with those could be headed down the wrong path.
He also spoke about how he’s been using his wisdom and gift of gab to helped squash a few rap beefs like the one between Young Jeezy & Rick Ross.
Tip’s been the peacekeeper for a minute now. Remember how he shut Diddy down when he was acting up in the club that time?
Awesomeness! But I digress…
Check out video of T.I.’s recent visit to The Arsenio Hall Show below…
VIDEO: T.I. Speaks About Helping Justin Bieber
T.I. on helping Justin Bieber:
When I speak to him, he listens with an open ear and I just tell him ‘man everybody has that moment when they had to look at themselves in the mirror and say somethings got to change.’ You know?
It’s not the environment all the time, sometimes it’s ‘me’ and he understands.
I just told him, you have to pick and choose your times and moments when you can do what you want to do and do what you have to do.

When asked how he intervened between the two rap stars, Tip states:
I offered input. These are grown men…
Young Jeezy is one of my patnah’s that I have in this industry.
I basically just said ‘if nothing hasn’t happened that would cause us to not be able to rectify it, let’s rectify it before something happens that would cause us to not be able to rectify it and get back to doing what we do… getting money & shining’.
They themselves made the decision to patch it up. I merely said hey… maybe we can try this rather than that.
