When asked about his “Wakanda” comment, T.I. tells Nick; “America has an incredible debt to pay, we must make sure we allow karma to have it’s way with America, in exchange for the dastardly deeds that have been done in the past.” He continues, “I said Wakanda because I didn’t want to say, that we had inherited an infrastructure of a eutopia that has been cast down from generation to generation and right now, this is the example for the rest of the nation to look at.”
