The Source Magazine, the leading publication of Hip-Hop music, culture and politics, welcomes T.I. to the cover of its 2nd issue during their legendary 25th anniversary year. This is the first time that this mogul has garnered the cover of The Source by himself, diving into his world of music, entrepreneurship, film, and television takeovers. On the heels of the release of his eighth studio album Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head, T.I. sits down with The Source for an exclusive and in-depth interview where the ATL-bred rapper talks in detail about his career, his family, and life after…
“Everybody’s gonna have their ups and downs. Just because I’m a celebrity, that doesn’t mean that I’m exempt from humanlike faults.”
T.I. who also snatched up a role in the upcoming comedy ‘Identity Thief ‘(which hits theaters on Feb. 8th) talks candidly about his future in Hollywood and how he’s diversifying his acting roles.
“It’s my first comedy so I’m looking forward to seeing that. I just want to keep my tools sharp…. Different people see T.I. in different ways. As long as they ain’t giving me a rapper. That’s what I don’t want to do. Anything else, I’d pretty much be open minded within reason of course.”
Coinciding with Black History Month, The Source goes into an in-depth timeline of events that celebrate African-American culture and important moments in Black History.
“Black History is American and World History, so we honor it, as we are indeed grateful to those who paved the way for us all today!” says L. Londell McMillan, Esq, Owner/Publisher.”
In addition, there is a complete recap of President Obama’s second inauguration and the historic events surrounding it.
This issue features rap artists The Game, Joe Budden, Pharrell’s new protégé Travis Scott, as well as guitaristGary Clark Jr (who’s been compared to the incredible sounds of Jimmy Hendrix). There is also a look into some of the sports world’s most promising athletes, including USA Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas and NY Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony.
