T.I. and Chris Brown

T.I. Impressed by Chris Brown’s Acting

T.I. stars alongside seasoned actors including Matt Dillon, Idris Elba, and Zoë Saldana in next month’s action-packed thriller Takers, but it was acting newcomer Chris Brown who took him by surprise.

“Chris was cool, man. I think Chris gonna impress a lot of people,” Tip told Power 106’s Luscious Liz of his on-screen co-star. “He does a lot of high performance, action sequences. He shows his ability. I think people will actually be pleasantly surprised with his performance.”

The superstars not only worked together on the big screen, but also collaborated on music before T.I. went to jail. “We did records together before I went in,” he revealed.

The King of the South would be open to future collaborations with the singer, who has been in the studio with Drake and Keyshia Cole lately. “I don’t see why not,” said Tip. “As long as the appropriate opportunity presents itself and the song [is right], I don’t see why not. I ain’t against that.”
