T.i. parle de son adiction à la drogue

TIP s'est exprimé sur ses problèmes avec la drogue chez Vibes.
Il explique comment les prescriptions l'ont poussées à l'addiction,
et dis qu'un trouble passé l'a aussi influencé.

C'est dans un récent interview que le rappeur parle de son ressenti à
propos des récentes charges qu'il a reçues et son temps de prison.
C'est donc avec Vibes qu'il a décidé de décrire ce qu'il pense à propos
de la perception qu'a le public à son égard, il trouve qu'il a été traité

If I place my value in the way humans treat me, then maybe. But they're human, man--
they can't help themselves,"
T.I. said. "They do that to people they know personally. So
how can I expect them to treat me, only knowing me through television? They did that to
Jesus. They did that to Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali. They did it to every
great person you could possibly think of. When it was all good, they was with them. When
things got bad, then they was against them.

Quand le public a été déçu des actions de T.I., le rappeur est resté
relativement silencieux pour expliquer son comportement. Pourtant,
il a finalement essayer d'expliquer pourquoi il est retombé dans de
vieilles habitudes et aussi casser les ponts avec ceux qui parle contre lui.

Let me just say this," he began. "If you look at a guy who came up, no pops in the house, moms on welfare, food stamps, started selling dope when he was 12, 13 years-old, came up handling guns, being in shoot-outs, started going to jail when he was 15. In all of this chaos and this mischief and lawlessness, the person who was just in jail for machine guns and silencers turns his life around. And now you want to crucify him--for what? Three pills. I mean, of course it's wrong and unacceptable and inexcusable. No problem. But in the grand scheme of things, it's rather petty. It's rather petty to hold someone's feet to the fire for something so small when they have overcome things that were so big. All that could have been going wrong--if I was riding with more guns, or if I had gotten into a shoot-out and killed somebody, then I could see that. But just think about it. I've gotten it down to this much

Bien que T.I. et sa femme Tameka Cottle aient été arrêter pour
possession d'ecstasy, il dit qu'il ai d'abord tombé dans l'habitude
d'en prendre à cause des prescriptions

I had a lot of work done to my teeth. Oral surgery, extractions, six, seven, eight root canals. Between January to February. As soon as I got out, I had a lot of stuff done. In the joint, you eat shit that is unhealthy for you. I had fillings that fell out and stuff that had to get dealt with. Of course for the pain they gave me oxycotin and hydrocodon. And, mind you, on October 13, 2007, I had cut off everything--weed, alcohol. Then I get these pills and I start taking them for the pain at first. And then, I'm like, 'Wait--this shit makes me feel good. And it's legal.' After the pain went away, I kept taking it. I had like five, six prescriptions. So I had, like 80 pills. Everybody else might have a drink or smoke a blunt, I took a pain pill. Times when I had 18-20 hour days, I'd take a pain pill. And eventually I developed--I guess--the beginning stages of dependence

Le prochain album de T.I. "No Mercy" sera disponible le 7 décembre.
