    "When I go home, that's who I am, what you see on the show. Now, what you're gonna hear through them records is when I hit the streets, when I'm out movin' and groovin' — this is the person that must maintain this personality because it's a cold world out here," he said. "At home, I could be Mr. Harris or Daddy or whatnot, but when I'm out here in these streets it's gonna have to be Tip because that's what it takes to make it out here." - MTV

I love the motivation that you have, you got that Ray Charles, Prince, Michael Jackson Industry attitude, a true Hustler can never stay the same, it's a time, & a place for it all. You got that "PULSE BEAT, that keep you strong & long, never gone, nomatter what's going on the people will never stop thinking bout you. It just keep the world wanting more! I love watching your show, i get in on episodes more than 4 times each show. It's wonderful, & fun to watch. . . .the greatest Swagg! I love watching that Shekanah Hairstylist Chick, she has great ideas, keep her around. I love her on screen, that's real too. . .We see the love you have for Tiny, she has the most beautiful personality!

Thats what I love the most about tip ...its his ability to balance "trap music" with how to "live your life" music.

So when I listen to your songs like "Welcome To the World" and "Strip", that's TIP that Im hearing and not Clifford Harris??? Well only God will allow a meeting between the two of us because I am a woman with faith that givin a meet and greet I will see both TIP and Clifford Im so sure of it. But Congrats on the New MixTape and if eva I meet you in the streets I will be that Welcome to the world chick for that moment. God Bless
