    T.I. On Writing Second Novel and BET Hip Hop Awards Fight [Rap-Up Interview]
    Posted by      

    In a new interview with Rap-Up, Tip spoke on writing his second novel, as well as the recent brawl that broke out at the BET Hip Hop Awards. Check out his comments below...

    On Writing Trouble & Triumph:

    “It was actually easier, because I had a starting point,” he said. When asked if the novel’s street love story was inspired by real life, the King of the South laughed it off. “Nah, these are entirely fictional characters.”

    On the recent fight between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy:

    “I didn’t even know about the fight,” said Tip, although he did attribute male ego and pride as being the root of most fights.

    “Men everywhere, we have huge egos and lots of pride,” he said. “I don’t know that particular incident personally, but most fights that I hear about, it’s about pride and ego. I can’t speak for every case. I don’t know much about this case.”
