T.I. Got Mentally Stressed in Jail

July 23, 2010 3:03 PM | Rap | T. I. | Comments (0)

T.I. recently reported to Complex Magazine that “Being in that environment and having those daily surroundings, it’s going to affect you”.  T.I. is currently collaborating with Lady Gaga and Swizz Beatz and doing his thing with the mixtape circuit, but jail affected him in some sense.

He said in an interview, “It did make me worse in a sense. Putting me in prison took me off (a positive) path a little bit, and now I’m working to get back on that path, or at least back on the path to the extent that I was before I went in”.

T.I. will be on the cover of Complex magazine for the August/September issue. He told the magazine that jail took a toll on his creativity.

He gave music a space for him not to feel so homesick. He spent his time watching TV instead. “True Blood” is a popular show on the cellblock, but it didn’t faze him. “I lost a little bit of my positive focus during that period of incarceration. Being in that environment and having those daily surroundings, it’s going to affect you.”

“The whole prison damn near shut down. Everybody left off the yard, like, “True Blood” coming on!’ They went crazy for it, there’s a bunch of sex in it, and so they were tuning in for that.”

King Uncaged drops in September.
