With only a week to go before his latest album No Mercy hits stores on December 7, T.I. explains the story behind some of his greatest hits in the preview for his episode of “VH1 Storytellers.” Filmed in front of a studio audience, the King of the South provides insight on key tracks before performing them live.
“What ‘Rubber Band Man’ means to me, back before anybody knew who T.I. was, back before I was doing something that I could be proud of doing, I used to wear rubber bands on my wrist kinda like this, as you see—minus the diamond watch,” joked Tip while explaining how he used the bands to keep track of his money accrued during the day.
“VH1 Storytellers: T.I.” airs Friday, December 10, at 11 p.m.
