If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s T.I. never holding his tongue for anything. For those unfamiliar with that, Tip has been doing that throughout his entire carer; just see what he did to Lil Flip’s career as a proper reference point. After recently announcing that he has cut virtually all ties from Iggy Azalea while with Hot 97, Clifford took to DJ Whoo Kid’s Shade 45 radio show to impart some more wisdom in regards to his other ward Travi$ Scott, his political views and a potential joint album with another superstar (or superstars).
Some choice quotes:
On Travi$ Scott
“That man is Iggy in a black man’s body,” in regards to La Flame’s penchant for being a bit stubborn. “Travi$ Scott accepts no advice nor instruction from the likes of me. Only thing I can take credit for is recognizing his talent and putting him in a position where he can put music out.”
On presidential candidate Hilary Clinton
“Not to be sexist but [Ed. note: there’s no way starting a quote off like that will end good…], I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman… Every other position that exists, I think a woman could do, well. Every other position. But, the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions, emotionally and later they make very permanent, cemented decisions and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure you would hate to just set off a nuke.”
Watch the entire thing unfold below.
Not too long after the clip was revealed, T.I. too to the Twitter to issue a formal apology in regards to his Clinton remarks:
My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.

On the music front, T.I. sat down with Vanity Fair and responded to some of the various Rap Genius interpretations of his lyrics.
