T.I. isn't ready to give up on Kanye West, despite all of the rapper's recent headline-making outbursts.
"We, as the black delegation, we can't afford to lose Kanye West," he declared during a recent radio interview. "What are we going to get for that? Elton John? Hell nah. I'm not going for that."
He continued, "I think he's a phenomenal talent of our generation that deserves to be heard and considered, no matter how preposterous it may be. I disagree with it emphatically, but I can't take away from—first of all, we gotta realize this is Kanye West we're talking about. It ain't even maybe 1 percent of the people on Earth that speak the language of Kanye West."
In a separate interview, T.I. revealed that when he confronted Kanye about supporting President Donald Trump and asked for his thoughts on the travel ban, Kanye replied, "What's the travel ban?"
