T.I. Talks About The Family Hustle And Retirement From Music


Prior to T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle, T.I. had never opened up his home or family life to the public. “I just think it was time for people to see who I was as a man,” he tells The Breakfast Club, when they asked him why he chose to open himself up to the cameras. He didn’t want to be defined by “small moments” in his life (we assume he means the illegal small moments), which he calls “isolated incidents,” which is why he and wife Tiny chose to show off their family and their parenting skills.

T.I. also talked about how he wants out of the music industry eventually, saying “Where the game is going to, and what it has evolved into from a personality standpoint, it goes against what I represent. What I embody, this game contradicts that.” Putting it more simply, Charlamagne says “T.I. is real, and the game is fake.” That doesn’t mean he’s planning to withdraw from public life since he has his TV show, an acting career, and clothing line, but “me as an artist, I make attempts to evolve.” And it sounds like he’s evolving away from music.
