T.I. may have spent a year (technically almost two straight years) in jail, but that doesn't mean he's stayed out of the loop on the latest 2011 hip hop headlines. Tip was asked about the recently-quiet Nicki Minaj/Lil Kim feud and the Atlanta rap star said that he hasn't given it much thought, but he has been watching Nicki.
And T.I. says that right now is Nicki's time.
"It's hard for me to take rap beef seriously," he says dismissively. "But I will say that Nicki's on fire now. She's a monster, literally."
