After President Barack Obama spoke out in favor of same-sex marriage, Jay-Z added his support. Now, T.I. is saying he does not understand “why some people are so against it.” During an interview with Hot 97, the head of Grand Hustle explained that he does not have a position against same sex marriage but he stopped short of saying he fully supports it.
“To be absolutely honest with you, I don’t care,” T.I. said, when asked about the legalization of same-sex marriage. “I don’t see what the big deal is, why some people are so against it. Why would you be so against it if it doesn’t affect you or your lifestyle? I’m not in that world and it doesn’t affect me if they did or didn’t [get married]. I don’t care enough one way or another. If something doesn’t affect you, you should not take a strong position against it.”
T.I.P. also spoke on his past with Meek Mill, originally having him as part of the Grand Hustle team. He shared that he’s happy for Mill’s success.
“I salute his success,” T.I. said of Meek Mill. “I’m extremely proud of him…I had my own issues, my own battles to fight, which kept me from completely focusing on what was best for his career. He had an opportunity and I couldn’t match that opportunity at that time.”
