T.I. covers the August 2008 issue of XXL Magazine. Inside the issue, T.I. addresses his federal gun charges and how his life has changed in the aftermath. He also explains why he chose to seek weapons and also why he doesn’t blame anyone for the decisions he made that got him in that predicament. In addition to the obvious questions about the gun charges & snitching, T.I. also told XXL that he feels that the beef between he and fellow Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo is all just a misunderstanding.
