Who’s your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper? Evidently Drake wasn’t T.I.’s—get into this! While promoting his new album Dime Trap T.I. revealed in an interview yesterday, that he once had an opportunity to sign Drizzy, but decided to pass! Dang—Drake might have been screaming Grand Hustle instead of YMCMB.

“I passed on Drake,” he said. “It was Drake before the beard—barefaced Drake.”
He explained he didn’t think Drake’s sound was gonna pop off, “It just hadn’t caught all the way up yet. That type of music, that sound of music, the emo sound wasn’t necessarily prevalent at the time. I didn’t see the curve just like I never thought skinny jeans was gonna happen. That one got by me.” He also spoke on the alleged 2010 incident at the premiere of his movie Takers. A friend of T.I.’s was said to have urinated on Drake, yes you read that correctly. The rapper dodged the question saying, “I have no recollection. I cannot confirm nor deny anything. Let’s move on to the next question.” That’s not all though, he also admitted that he tried to sign Meek Mill but the deal ended up falling through because of his legal trouble.
