Two nights ago at the Gramercy Theater in New York, Elliott chopped it up with T.I. for the latest installment of CRWN. Couldn’t make it? We got you covered with the first of two clips above.
This past Tuesday, New York was treated to a special conversation – #CRWN with T.I. and Elliott Wilson, presented by Footaction. The Southern rapper, who just released his ninth studio album, Paperwork, was all amped up to talk about his relationship with Pharrell, his defense of Young Thug (“Did you understand everything Bone Thugs N’ Harmony was saying?”), and the reason Iggy Azalea haters are mad. Tip had so much to say, the interview ran over an hour and a half.
UPDATE: In the final clip, Tip talks about his previous albums, Grammys, and collabo album Dope Boy Academy with Jeezy. Whoa!
In Part 2 of #CRWN with T.I. and Elliott Wilson, presented by Footaction, T.I. walks us through the early stages of his career, from getting signed to leaving the label and eventually making his way to Atlantic. He recalls recording 90% of Urban Legend in his then-girlfriend Tiny’s basement and beefing with Lil’ Flip. He even admits King should have won the album of the year in 2006, but still gives props to Ludacris for his Grammy.
