The Kang of the South covers the upcoming issue of The Source magazine.
Although T.I. has been around for many years, he has never yet had a soloÂ cover of The Source magazine. Now that's changed, with Tip landing his very first cover of the hip-hop mag for their upcomingÂ issue.
Check out two brief excerpts from The Source's interview with the Kang below, where he talks on career's ups and downs, and his upcoming role in the movie "Identity Thief."
On "Identity Thief":Â
âItâs my first comedy so Iâm looking forward to seeing that. I just want to keep my tools sharpâ¦. Different people see T.I. in different ways. As long as they ainât giving me a rapper. Thatâs what I donât want to do. Anything else, Iâd pretty much be open minded within reason of course.â
Â On his career:Â
âEverybodyâs gonna have their ups and downs. Just because Iâm a celebrity, that doesnât mean that Iâm exempt from humanlike faults.â
The magazine hits newsstands on February 5th.
