T.I. has been going going hard promoting his new album, Trouble Man, which dropped yesterday. In this recent interview with Hot 97 he a few things out side of music, and his album.
We all know T.I.’s has had his run-ins with the law, and has paid his debt to society. While talking to Cipha Sounds & Peter Rosenberg, the Kang addresses gun control as it related to the recent incident at Sandy Hook Elementary. This is what he had to say:
“This is my problem with stepping in right now, in the ban of anything. Then see what that does is, it means thatÂ only the criminals are going to be allowed to have this particular item. ‘Cause right it’s crimianls that can’t have assault Â rifles, pistols,Â or nothing, and they got ’em and they know they can’t have them. So you think if they ban ’em it’s gunna be double illegal for me now? I’m still gunna carry mine.Â So if the illegals have ’em, I think the legals must have ’em. Because at this point now, the ban of assault rifles, and the need of asssault rifles, it depends on the area in the country you are.”
“I’m saying that the policies and procedures that are in the place, they are in place to protect America from the people that look like us. If you get one felony, and this, that, and the other. And all these people doing massacres ain’tÂ noÂ felonies. I’m just saying that the people that look like me aren’t necessarily the ones to be looked at. “
