The King, T.I., held court with the Queen when he remixed Beyoncé’s “Dance for You” earlier this year. But he first he got approval from Bey herself. He called up Pharrell, who happened to be in the studio with the “Single Ladies” singer, and asked if she supported his idea to add a verse.
“That very night, I did it and got it back to them, and they gave me the nod of approval and I ran with it,” Tip told Rap-Up TV.
T.I. is aware that Bey has a new album on the way and he’s more than willing to help out. “She has full knowledge of the fact that if she needs me for anything that I am there at the drop of a hat,” he said.
Another superstar he hopes to reconnect with is Eminem. While the two haven’t spoken since Tip returned from prison, don’t be surprised to see more collaborations between them in the future.
“The comraderie we have, the mutual respect, it allows and enables us to do music in abundance,” said T.I., who worked with Em on “That’s All She Wrote” off his 2010 album No Mercy. “All we got to do is get together for a short period of time and you’ll have a lot of music.”
The rapper-turned-actor also revealed that he was up for a role in the comic book blockbuster Iron Man 3, but a scheduling conflict prevented it from happening. “My dream movie is an action-comedy,” shared Tip, who stars in the upcoming comedy Identity Thief with Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman.
