“Taylor’s extended Hustle Gang. She a part of the crew,” T.I. told Fuse in March. “She just ain’t got her dog tags yet, but she’s a part of the crew tho.” When asked how Bobby Ray ended up on a song with Taylor Swift B.o.B revealed that it was Taylor who came to Atlanta and reached out to Grand Hustle about working together.
This comes on the heels of all three performers sharing the stage together at various shows over the past year. B.o.B. joined Taylor for a rendition of “Airplanes” at her Dallas concert on October 9, 2011. The “Strange Clouds” rapper tweeted, “Had a night to remember in Dallas performing one of my biggest songs with the ever-so enchanting @taylorswift13.”
