(AllHipHop News) T.I. is the latest recording artist to try his hand as a podcast host. The Atlanta-bred rap star also known as Tip Harris will lead expediTIously for PodcastOne.
“This is a totally new space for me, one that gives me another conduit to examine the world, and one that gives me the freedom to think, react, and share with the generation what genuinely comes to mind…specifically for the purpose of moving the culture forward,” says Harris.
The Grand Hustle Records founder adds, “I plan to use this platform to amplify issues and have conversations that are important to me - and that shape the world.” Fellow Hip Hop legends LL Cool J and Ice Cube will be the initial special guests on the September 5 show. Additional episodes of expediTIously will drop every week.
“T.I. is an unconventional play in the podcast space. He brings a fresh, bold voice, that is as powerful as it is brilliant and oftentimes funny,” says PodcastOne CEO Peter Morris. “Not only will fans get the first-class entertainment value you’d expect from an award-winning superstar, but he’s also challenging your views on a range of issues and topics in ways you never thought possible. In today’s climate, this kind of open, honest conversation is needed more than ever. This show is fresh and brings a different kind of energy to podcasts.”
