On his recent interview with CNN, TI revealed that even though he’s blessed with a gleaming career and a thriving clothing business, AKOO, he won’t stay in the game until he’s 40. He stated:
“I’m not going to be the 40-year-old rapper. I would not. That’s Jay. He’s doing it very well. Hats off, but I just don’t see that for me.”
Tip also said that he prefers to be Will Smith rather than Jay-Z when it comes to future work plans. He also hinted that he’d like to start a new path in acting.
“If I had the option to [be] Jay-Z [or] Will Smith, I think I’d go with Will. I’m a Jay-Z fan. I have a lot of admiration and respect for Jay and his legacy. But I feel like Will, he gets to spend more time with his family. He gets to be home more and actually raise his kids. I feel like he has more of a home life…and the money don’t hurt. Twenty million dollars a flick ain’t bad.”
You hear that, Hollywood? We’ll be prepared to see him on red carpets and probably the Oscars, then. We do think TI will be a success in Tinseltown, but even if he doesn’t make it, he’ll always have AKOO to turn to. The clothing line just came out with a new collection for the summer on DrJays and here are some of our favorites:
