Rapper T.I. is a proud dad.
Recently the iconic rapper released a new project entitled Dime Trap, a decade after the release of his classic Trap Muzik album.
During a chat with The Breakfast Club where he went to promote the record, T.I. gave some details about the collaborator on the album, his son Messiah, who he said contributed some of his flair as a beat maker to one of his tracks, adding that he “actually did” pay the boy for his labor.
“My other son, Messiah, he produced on the record […] It’s called ‘Light day’,” he said, adding, “We negotiated a fair rate […] given this was his second placement.”
He further added, “I think I gave him 10 thousand. He negotiated it. You know, I started at 5 […] But it was dope though, it was a dope record. I negotiated with him like, if I got this beat from somebody else, what would I be willing to pay for it? You know what I mean? And I felt it was a dope beat.”
