Rapper T.I. gets behind the mic not to record an album but to debut his new podcast ExpediTIously.
The Atlanta artist may be a hip-hop veteran however his podcast looks to tackle a different subject. According to Billboard, the subject matter ranges from social issues and relationships to critical issues impacting society.
“And I tried to create an environment where people could speak and express themselves freely, fully, authentically, and unapologetically. We have created a space where you can speak your truth without judgment,” says T.I. to Billboard.
