Kiss100 got the opportunity to ask him a few questions in relation to his love for Africa and what it means to be in Kenya. T.I said,

it is inspiring and enlightening just to see so many of us you know what I mean holding different positions in society which is not something we were used to seeing in America 

T.I is termed the king of trap music and the evolution of the genre has grown and he says it is flattering that it has come this far. It is all over the world now including the 254 where so many young people have made a living out of trap music.

“It has evolved and become quite extensive as long as people have stories to tell that relate to stories of trap music then we will continue to have different installation and people sharing their stories. I believe it is a shaking movement.¬† it is flattering and humbling that so many people jumped on it” T.I says
