T.I: Prison Time Didn't Kill Me, It Built Me

It’s like he was never locked up! T.I. has only been out of prison for six months and he's already fully back on top of the music scene.

Hollyscoop talked EXCLUSIVELY with the rapper at the MTV Movie Awards, and he brought us up to speed on everything he’s up to! We started by telling him how glad we are that he’s a free man again, to which he responded, “Thank you, thank you.”

T.I. used his time behind bars wisely though, and was busy working on his upcoming album. “I absolutely did,” he told us. “The Album King Uncaged comes out August 17th along with the film Takers--it comes out August 20th. I’m very proud to present it to the world.”

We know T.I. is big into collaborations, and he told us what we can expect off the new record. He told us, “I have some cool collaborations, nothing that I will speak on just as of yet. Except for the one that is already out with Keri Hilson and myself called ‘Got Your Back.’ I think that this as all of my albums will be a representation of where I am in this period in my life.”

Bottom line, T.I. told us he learned a lot about himself while doing time. “I mean, whatever doesn’t kill you will build you,” he said.

And he’s still the same great guy he’s always been, and hasn’t lost his sense of humor. We asked him who has the hottest Hollywood body, and he told us, “Me, absolutely.”

We’re not disagreeing! Check out our EXCLUSIVE video below!
