T.I. returned to The Breakfast Club on Power 105 the day after he performed at the morning show’s two-year anniversary show. 

The King Of The South has seemingly reclaimed his top spot with his latest album Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head. But before then, he had to address the elephant in the room that he was pretty cold right before this album dropped.

“No other rapper in history has had to endure the circumstances that I’ve had to endure and maintain a professional career,” says T.I.  “I had to focus on my freedom and get myself out from under the thumb of the professional government. I couldn’t just put out “Trap Back Jumpin'” like that like I didn’t have to see my probation officer next week…I had to wait. I had to put out music that was appropriate for my circumstances at the time and just balance out what was appropriate and what was necessary. I did the best I could with what I had.”

T.I. also breaks down in explicit detail on what he’s done that led to a lot of his legal mistakes and why getting off of probation has helped him lift a heavy weight off of his shoulders. Check out his interview in full down after the jump.
