The King of the South, Clifford Harris a.k.a. TI, sat down with CNN’s Larry King last night on his very first interview since being released from his 1 year and 1 day sentence. As you know, Tip was imprisoned last year under illegal purchase of weapons charges and was released to a halfway house in Atlanta in December 2009 before finally announced as a free man back in March. Here’s TI opening up to Larry King, divided in 5 parts.
In case you haven’t noticed, Larry King didn’t use his usual intimidating ‘journo’ style when talking to Tip. Guess he knew that there’s no messing with Tip when it comes to what’s important in his life: fiancee Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, his kids and Grand Hustle business.
TI talked about his prison time, early career, and basically re-introduced himself to his fans. The former straight-A student had troubles in his past, but now is a new beginning. Tip is currently working on his new upcoming abum: “King Uncaged”.
