    T.I. Talks About Topping the Hot 100
    Posted by      

    On day 23 of Billboard's 1,000 Hot No. 1s video series, they take a look at true hip-hop hits, as they chat with T.I. about his No. 1s, "Whatever You Like" and "Live Your Life." "As I've learned, most times in this industry the things that scare the sh*t out of you, that's probably the direction you need to be heading, " T.I. says of embracing the uniqueness of "Whatever," which ruled the top for a staggering seven (non-consecutive) weeks beginning Sept. 6, 2008. Just a month after "Whatever" first hit No. 1, the rapper (with some help from Rihanna) replaced himself at the top on Oct. 18, 2008 with the song "Live Your Life."
