Rapper T.I. has stunned fans by revealing he'd like to quit the music business but contractually he cannot walk away.
The Live Your Life hitmaker admits he's no longer interested in being part of hip-hop and he wants to concentrate on a film and reality TV career.
Appearing on radio show Power 105′s The Breakfast Club on Monday (21May12), the rap star, real name Clifford Harris, Jr., claims the genre has changed while he has been in and out of prison on illegal weapons charges and probation violations in recent years - and now he'd like to quit.
He said, "I want out, man. What the game is going to and what has evolved... it goes against what I represent.
"What I embody, this game contradicts that. I want out. I’m in it because I love music and I have obligations, contractually.
"At one time this music was about speaking to the people who felt like you feel. Now, the people I’m speaking to, they don’t necessarily feel like how I feel. In my day, if you were rapping about something you weren’t really living, that was a strike against you. You were held accountable.
"Nowadays, nobody even expects you to live up to the things you rap about. That goes against what I represent, what I stand for. So if they outsell me, then that’s just all the more better for me to fade to the back and cross my legs on my desk."
