T.I. has officially been free for not even a month now and he’s begun making some lofty comparisons to himself and the G.O.A.T. T.I. may have gone a little too far with comparing his upcoming album to Tupac’s “All Eyez on Me” but only time will tell.
Here is an excerpt from Rolling Stone Magazine in his recent interview:
With T.I. appearing to be in top form since his release from prison, the rapper is already making bold statements in relation to his upcoming album, King Uncaged.
Referencing his time behind bars, T.I.P. is comparing his next project to All Eyez On Me and how Tupac Shakur was after he was released from prison.
Making his face more public, the rapper spoke with Rolling Stone on his release and wanting to deliver work comparable to 2Pac.
“Just given the enormous success of that project, everyone’s expecting the same results. I just want to meet the expectations, if not surpass them.”
I kind of see his point, with Tip’s release from prison being one of the most highly anticipated releases that the rap game has seen since Tupac’s…at least until Lil Wayne comes home in November. Whether or not you agree with the man, Tip’s quotes are sure to generate some buzz for his album and people will definitely want to listen and see if his album lives up to the hype.
T.I.’s album is to be released in August
