Rapper T.I. touched on his friendship with country pop singer Taylor Swift in a recent interview. Swift called up Tip to appear at her show in Atlanta last month right after he was released from prison. The "King of the South" says he was shocked by Swift's phone call.
"I was pleasantly surprised and confused," T.I. said. "I was confused because I know it's a phenomenal opportunity, but being T.I. -- the Rubberband Man -- and Taylor Swift being America's Sweetheart, I had just gotten out of prison like two days [earlier] and all of a sudden my phone rings."
"There were significant differences in a Taylor Swift show from a T.I. show," he adds. "You could take the biggest of the biggest hip-hop artists -- even a Kanye West or Jay-Z show -- and their concerts or tours, they gon' be just a world away from a [Taylor Swift] show."
