T.I. Defends Hip-Hop Lyrics on 'Daily Show': 'If You Want to Change the Content of the Music, Change the Environment'
T.I stopped by The Daily Show With Trevor Noah earlier this week to discuss his show T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle and his latest video "Warzone" before defending the claims made of hypocrisy within the hip-hop community.
Noah mentions that rappers rally for social justice, yet their lyrics boast a different message -- a message that glorifies the exact issue they want to end: violence. "People need to take into consideration that hip-hop traditionally has always been a reflection of the environment,” the Atlanta-bred rapper replied. “So if you want to change the content of the music, change the environment of the artist. And he won’t have such negative things to say.”
T.I recently dropped a visual for his song "Warzone," which is a vivid depiction of countless lives that were taken at the hands of police brutality. The video is another addition to the many protests celebrities have spearheaded in efforts to raise social consciousness.
