T.I. Gets Support From Eminem
Tip talks about how much Slim helped him behind bars...
The Grammy-winning rapper claimed that Em was a big support for him whilst incarcerated and that he gave some great advice, which he very much appreciated.
He told MTV News US: "I reached out to Em. My management reached out to his management, just in hopes of getting him on a record. Em personally reached out to me, and we been speaking ever since, especially since I went through my situation [with having to go to prison]. [He would] just kinda remind me that 'I've been through dark period in my life too. You're gonna make it. You're one of the ones we need, so you're gonna make it. Stand tall and walk the walk.'
“He just made it a point to always reassure me of the spot that I hold in this thing that we got called hip-hop. It was incredibly helpful. It was incredibly noble of him, in my eyes, to even take the time out to reach out to me."
