T.I. says that if what happened to Trayvon Martin happened to his own child, he'd be on trial, for killing the man who killed his child.
We've heard from a lot of rappers at this point about their feelings on the Trayvon Martin case. Most express the same sentiment-- one of anger, disbelief, and a feeling that something needs to be done. T.I. is no different. While talking with Power 98's DJ No Limit Larry, Tip reflects on the verdict and how he feels about it.
The Kang of the South called bullshit on the verdict, "Man, it was some bullshit," Tip said. He continued to extend his condolences to Travyon's family, and said that if it would have happened to him, he would be on trial-- for killing George Zimmerman.
"My hat goes off to the Martin family, because if it was me and my child, there wouldnât have been no trial," T.I. continued. "Iâd have been on trial. It wouldâve been the trial of the father who killed the man who killed [his child]. That would have been my story. My hat goes off because [the Martin family] are much more clear and level-headed thinkers than [myself]."
Apart from discussing the case, the King also spoke briefly on his follow-up to Trouble Man. "Iâve been working on this one since the last one dropped," T.I. said of Trouble Man II: He Who Wears The Crown. "I havenât decided exactly where Iâm going to take (the new album) yet as far as a company for distribution, but wherever I take it, thereâs going to be some happy people in that building."
