T.I. and Drake

T.I.’s Advice for Drake

The captain of the cool kids, T.I., has some friendly advice for the new kid on the block, Drake.

The Canadian rapper-singer said the best advice he’s received was from the King of the South. “T.I. told me to never stop smiling. That’s what people like about me,” he revealed to Rolling Stone.

T.I., along with Swizz Beatz, is featured on Drake’s debut album Thank Me Later on the song “Fancy.”

“I think Drake’s one of the coolest of the new kids,” Tip told Rap-Up TV. “He has an outstanding ability to do him without doing anything anyone else is doing. I think that he sets himself apart and as long as he’s able to do that, he’ll have his own lane in this thing we call hip-hop.”
