T.I. Explains Working With Meek Mill And Dolla
T.I. explains how he worked with Meek Mill while recording his album “Paper Trail.” He also stated that his apparel Hustle Gang is not affiliated with AKOO.
Meek Mill was signed to MMG, but the rapper enjoyed being at T.I.’s Grand Hustle for a couple months. In a recent interview with DJ Whoo Kid, T.I. stated that he was able to work with Meek Mill while he was an artist with Grand Hustle.
T.I. remembered a time in which he worked with Meek Mill and Dolla while he was recording his album “Paper Trail” in Los Angeles.
“Meek is the homie man. When I first was introduced to Meek he was still freestyling on the corners of Philly, North Philly, South Philly. Nigga had long motherfuckin braids man. He was a cool cat though,” said T.I. in a video posted on RapRadar.com. “My partner Charlie Mack actually brought him out to L.A. to kick it with me and it was me, him, and Dolla – rest in peace to my homeboy Dolla. Me, him, and Dolla we had probably two week’s worth of sessions during the time when I was recording Paper Trail.”
He also explained how his apparel Hustle Gang was inspired by Baby and Young Money t-shirts. He even revealed that the merchandise is not affiliated with his AKOO clothing line.
“It is not necessarily a clothing line. It’s an exclusive merch item coming from Grand Hustle Gang,” T.I. explained. “It is not AKOO. You know what I’m saying? And it is not in competition with AKOO. It’s just us extending ourselves to the rest of the public because up until now we always kept our shit exclusive for us. And we never let it out to the people.”
T.I.’s album, “Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head,” was released on December 18 and was expected to sell 170,000 copies in its first week.Photo credit: hiphopwired.com
