T.I. considers Lady Gaga’s move to include him and other rappers to do the rap throwdown in her single “Jewels n’ Drugs from her new album, “ARTPOP” as innovative and courageous. As per MTV, Tip thanks the pop singer on “RapFix Live” Wednesday for reaching out to him as well as Too $hort and Twista.

Tip also shared that his part on the pop record was only done after a chance meeting on the same studio where he and the Mother Monster were recording on separate rooms.

“I was recording in a room down the hall and somebody came and got me and said, ‘LG wants to holla at you,’” he said. “I just went there and did what I do,” Tip added. “Just like that; took me a couple of minutes.”
