Atlanta rapper T.I. has come forward to speak on slained Hustle Gang member Doe B. Although Doe B tragically passed, Tip explained how he refuses to let the 22 year old’s legacy pass by making sure his music gets heard.
Despite the death of the 22 year old, T.I. explains how records such as their collaboration “Why”, will keep getting released to show the world what he had to offer.
“Doe actually gave me that record. We initially did it. I was holding it for my album. Just the subject matter and just how it felt listening to it after he had passed I felt that it was more appropriate for him for right now,” T.I. said, referring to their “Why” record. “It seemed like he was speaking to us about his situation. I really haven’t heard anything as eerie as that since Machiavelli. You know what I’m saying? So, I felt that it was more than appropriate. And I refuse to let his dream die. I refuse to let his efficacy and his energy go to waste. We’ll continue to march and move forward in productivity in his honor.” (V-103)
