(T.I. on his experiences w/ Nelly and Young Jeezy at Taylor Swift concert)
By Nadeska Alexis
During Monday night’s episode of “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle,” fans finally got a chance to see how Tip’s October performance with Taylor Swift unfolded behind-the-scenes. Still, there were a few moments that the camera didn’t capture, and when MTV News caught up with T.I. in NYC, he gave some extra details on the experiences that he, Nelly and Young Jeezy had backstage.
After pointing out some of the key differences between a hip-hop show and a Taylor Swift show earlier, the Atlanta rapper followed up with a colorful example of the unexpected hospitality he experienced. He was so pleased, in fact, that jokes about reaching out to the pop star directly, the next time she passes through ATL. “Man I’m calling her [Swift] next time—‘Hey, I heard you gon’ be in town, I was wondering if maybe you want to get the band back together?”
Tip’s earlier breakdown of the T. Swift show: “There were significant differences in a Taylor Swift show from a T.I. show,” he said, clearly amused at the thought. “You could take the biggest of the biggest hip-hop artists — even a Kanye West or Jay-Z show — and their concerts or tours, they gon’ be just a world away from a [Taylor Swift] show.”
