According to T.I., the pgLang founder has been able to do what most of his peers can’t. “Kendrick has been the one who has been able to simultaneously achieve both. That’s extremely special. That’s an art within itself,” he added.
T.I. and Kendrick have collaborated in the past on 2013’s “Memories Back Then” featuring B.o.B and Kris Stephens.
Elsewhere in the interview, T.I. also had kind words to say about Lil Baby and his protest song “The Bigger Picture.” “That was very well played. It was so unexpected,” he said of the track, which peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100. “I think he was of the percentile of youngsters that people kind of assume would stay out of the discussion… so for him to so eloquently speak from his perspective, not necessarily compromising one position for another. It was very well played.”
