    In a recent interview with SOHH, Tip discussed the meaning behind his new video for "Go Get It". Check out what he had to say:

    For "Go Get It," we really went with a "Then & Now" type of concept because a lot of the activites are the same, it's just the surrounding and my position in the business is different.

    I think that's true for me probably more so than a lot of other people in my position or my level of success. I still kick it with the same cats for the most part, I eat a lot of the same food, my activities and pasttimes are very much the same.

    It's just different clothes, different cars and different houses and hanging out at different states. I think for us to capture that was key. That's what adds to the authenticity of it.

    It wasn't my intent for us to approach it as a T.I. vs. T.I.P. type of video. It was just showing me then and me now. It's the past and then the present. That was really the truth behind it.

    It was about waking up back when I was trapping and living that life back in the day when I recorded I'm Serious, "Dope Boyz," and it's showing you how I was getting it and how I'm getting it right now.

    The video is showing you how similar [those lifestyles are] but how different they are at the same time.

    In regards to Chad Johnson, Tip told SOHH: "Could we use him? I believe we could, man. I think one thing about adversity and tragic moments with people who are extremely talented, it brings the best out of them. He needs another opportunity. Whatever they did, whether it's Chad or whoever, I think he's going to be a bit more focused on his reconditioning and I think this all will bring the best out of him."

    GlobalGrind: There was a lot of talk about hip-hop’s dark secret of people using ghostwriters. Do you think this takes away from hip-hop, or does it even matter, as long as the verse is hot?

    T.I.: I don’t know. I’ve never done it myself. I’ve never done it. I sat in rooms and I challenge myself with the verses. Bounce them off the minds of people in the room. I've had people write hooks for me and shit, but verses? I've never had anyone do that. If it works for them, then shit, keep doing it, if that’s what it takes.
