T.I. has used his “expediTIously” podcast to become a prominent voice in hip hop media. Now, the podcast is going to be taken to a new level.
According to Billboard, the “What You Know” rapper has just teamed up with YouTube to expand. “YouTube will host new episodes which will be uploaded every Tuesday and Thursday at noon ET on the podcast’s YT channel,” Billboard reports. “This week’s installment features Tip’s conversation with Tyler Perry. New episodes will still be released every Thursday via PodcastOne on Apple and Spotify.”
Tip is also in the process of developing a television series about his childhood.
“I’ve also been developing a show called ‘Once Upon a Time in the 90s,’ which details my teenage years from the time I was 15, getting sent out of school [and] on my way to who we now know as T.I.,” he said. “It goes into the people I met, the lessons I learned, and I’ve been focused on that.”
Last month, Tip shared the news that the hit Netflix show “Rhythm + Flow” will return for a second season next year.
“Excited to announce that @rhythmflow will back for Season 2!!!” he tweeted. “Things aren’t easy right now, so let’s show the world some love. Flex your talent by dropping your audition below and make sure you go to http://RhythmAndFlow.com to officially submit - we want to see you on S2!!!”
The Paper Trail rapper tells Billboard that they are currently accepting video auditions, but production for the show won’t begin until the pandemic ends.
“[It’s] pending COVID-19,” he stated. “Season two has been green-lit and we’re definitely accepting auditions by the way of video and emails. We’ll be starting the first round of auditions that way, and erring on the side of progress with what’s going on. I think the next level of auditions will be how we originally started.”
