Earlier this week, 31-year-old (Clifford Joseph Harris) T.I stopped at a few places in New York to promote his new book, “Power & Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Streets.” Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show was one of his stops, where he talked about his life before, during, and after prison. (BTW, he just finished 11 months in prison, after drug charges.)
T.I. told Stern that before being locked up, he made about $300k per night — $225,000 per concert and $75,000 to 100,000 for after parties. He admitted that he ran a crew while in prison, and even started a fight with another inmate just because he felt like fighting. He also took time to address the comment that 50 cent made a while ago, via twitter. 50 tweeted that Tiny (T.I’s wife) should have taken the blame and done the jail time for him. Here’s Tip’s response to 50’s comment:
“Well, I mean, you know, I’m going to tell you, I’m going to just speak on how I handle situations and how I handle myself. I mind my business, you know? If it don’t got nothing to do with me, I don’t speak on it because I don’t have enough information to speak intelligently on the situation. I only speak on how I deal with myself and how I handle myself. I mind my business. You know what I’m saying?”
That’s a fair response (“Mind your f*ckin’ business, 50.”), right?
