    Killer Mike Speaks On "PL3DGE" Without T.I. Around
    Posted by      

    When HipHopDX asked Killer Mike if it felt unnatural to release his new album PL3DGE without T.I. being around, he responded:

    "Yeah, I miss my friend. I told somebody that…I can remember still going to buy Trap Muzik, and popping up at Tower Records. He was outside, and I was going in to get [a copy]. I didn’t even know he was there, and he was grabbing my records. You miss your friend more than anything, because you care about what your friend thinks of your records. On a professional level, he texts me. He just got rights to talk back and forth, so we were e-mailing right on the 19th—the day before my birthday.

    I just hit him up saying I miss him, telling him how much we love and care about him and that I’m glad his family is good. I told him I hoped he was okay and to keep his head up. He hit me back, and the only thing he could talk about was how he was sorry he wasn’t out to help push and promote the record. [He asked] how [Young] Dro was doing, and said he hated that he couldn’t be out on tour. That just gives a real testament to what a real friend he is. He’s in prison, but he cared more about how me and Dro doing well. It almost made me tear up. I was like, “This guy shouldn’t be giving a damn about that.” He’s watching the way the record is performing. I just miss my friend. I guess that’s the easiest answer." - HipHopDX

It is hard to see when a friend whom you care about is not there but, just realize its harder for him to see you guys go through things and deal with the business without him being there to give the support... True Friends that what it sounds like to me... Keep Striving, And giving T.I the support he needs and all will come together!!!!
