Grammy-winning rapper T.I. has stepped forward to speak on the legacy slain Hustle Gang member Doe B left behind him at the age of 22 and why his music will not go unheard.
Despite his sudden death, Tip said records like their “Why” collaboration and more will continue to surface.
“Doe actually gave me that record. We initially did it. I was holding it for my album. Just the subject matter and just how it felt listening to it after he had passed I felt that it was more appropriate for him for right now,” T.I. said, referring to their “Why” record. “It seemed like he was speaking to us about his situation. I really haven’t heard anything as eerie as that since Machiavelli. You know what I’m saying? So, I felt that it was more than appropriate. And I refuse to let his dream die. I refuse to let his efficacy and his energy go to waste. We’ll continue to march and move forward in productivity in his honor.” (V-103)
