    T.I.: Trapped
    By: Benjamin Meadows-Ingram

    April 11, 2006

    As T.I. perfects his crossover, his biggest enemy may be himself. Benjamin Meadows-Ingram rides with a man on the tipping point.

    T.I. likes to drive. Fast. And not like you do, you know, nudging the needle just north of legal so you can get where you’re going without meeting Johnny Law. Nah. T.I. likes to fly, pushing every ride he rolls well past the limit in a way you feel in your gut. The man could be headed to a court date, and he’d still drive like the cops were on his ass. And so it is, on a bright Tuesday afternoon in late January, Tip (as his folks and friends call him) is on his way to deposit a couple of six-figure checks at his local bank, weaving his black Dodge SRT through downtown Atlanta traffic like Mike Vick running over an opposing football team. And he ain’t making any new fans along the way. But don’t think for a minute that he’s trying to hear it from the folks caught watching him beat traffic, so the second time the same cat lays on his horn to protest one of his more offensive moves,T.I. angles his truck over into the right lane so he can “figure out what is wrong with this motherfucker.” A beige Yukon pulls up on the left, and Doug Peterson, T.I.’s longtime friend and VP of his label, Grand Hustle, makes the call from his shotgun post. “It’s a couple of white boys,” he says. And then something catches his eye. “He’s reaching for a pistol, Tip.”


    A vicious “you-don’t-know-me” scowl cuts across T.I.’s mug as he cracks the tinted window to see what’s happening. Two big-ass white dudes, one of ’em rocking a handlebar moustache, stare back. The opposing passenger flashes a badge. “You got a problem?”


    The look on T.I.’s face fades. “Nah, I’m just running late, that’s all.”


    “You need to watch the fuck out, or you’re gonna be real late, you understand?”


    “Yes, sir,” T.I. says. He rolls up the window and, with one eye on the rearview, slowly takes the next right.


    “I thought they were just some regular white boys with a pistol,” Peterson says.


    “Whatever they did, I’ma believer,” says T.I. “I used to not give a fuck, but I am scared of the police, ’cause they’ll have you fucked up. You got a gun, I got my gun. But if you got a badge, all right, you win. It’s your show. You make the rules.”


    The Dodge hits I-10, the road opens up, and T.I. lays a lead foot on the gas.

        True. Cops are Tops.
        Everybody sound same; commercialize the game, reminiscing when it wasn’t all business.

        If Hip Hop should die, we die together.

          "white boys", "white dudes", "white boys".

          Think he wanted us the know that they were white?
