T.I. is looking to conquer the podcast game. Beginning Sept. 5, Grand Hustle’s commander-in-chief will be switching gears by jumping into the fray with his newest show ExpediTIously, Billboard can exclusively announce.
For the Dime Trap MC, the slick catchphrase which he popularized on social media in a joking manner, will now morph into a safehaven for discussions ranging from social issues, relationships and “critical issues that impact us a society.”
“We talk about any and everything,” T.I. tells Billboard. And I tried to create an environment where people could speak and express themselves freely, fully, authentically, and unapologetically. We have created a space where you can speak your truth without judgment.”
Known for his loquacious nature, T.I. is more than happy to finally have a platform to voice his opinions freely and with no restraints. “Frankly, I think because I have a lot to say, and I think the world needs to hear it,” he says in response to the origin of his new podcast. “People know that I am quite opinionated, but I don’t’ think I’ve ever quite had the forum to have enough uninterrupted dialogue to really convey my feelings or share my insight.”
He adds: “I also felt that my opinions and ideas were far too big to just live on someone’s phone or on social media. I am at the point in my life where I have had so many life lessons and invaluable insight. I wanted to share, and I wanted others with even greater knowledge and rich life experiences to share their experiences in hopes of us moving the next generation forward.”
