In a new interview with MONTREALITY, T.I. sat down to discuss how he pioneered trap music and praises Eminem and Andre 3000’s creativity.
T.I. could possibly be one of the only rappers in the game to take his English vocabulary to the next language, not counting Snoop who definitely created an entire “Izzle” dialect, but is T.I. the reason behind trap music?
The Atlanta rapper is definitely claiming to be the “creator” of trap music. Speaking to MONTREALITY, Tip says:
Since it was introduced to the world, there were people who enforced it, spread the genre out, and gave it wings and life beyond its origin. But if you go back to who truly started it, Imust humbly say myself.
T.I. also states that both Eminem and Andre 3000 are “the most meticulous artists I’ve ever worked with, and they’re very critical of themselves.”
