T.I. Weighs In On 'Blurred Lines' Verdict

In the aftermath of the "Blurred Lines" verdict, in which a jury decided to award $7.4 million in profits and damages to Marvin Gaye's family, the family now wants the judge to "correct" the verdict and add a few more parties to it, including Universal Music, Interscope Records and Star Trak Entertainment. T.I. is now also being asked to be held accountable.

Considering the latest development in the case, the rapper (real name Clifford Harris, Jr.) is weighing in on it.

"I don't know what's going on. I never really got caught up in that. I have nothing but admiration and respect for the legacy and the estate of Marvin Gaye," he told TMZ. "I know that I'm a writer, a creator, I don't steal from anybody creatively when I make my music. I know that, and I think anybody with common sense will be able to see it whenever they listen to it."

"I'll be exonorated or whatever cause I know I did the right thing," he further commented about his part on Robin Thicke's massive hit. 

Thicke and Pharrell Williams were ordered to pay that sum after a verdict was reached a by California federal jury earlier this month.
