T.I. on Lady Gaga: Her Talent "Transcends Through All Genres"
It seems like every artist wants to jump in the studio with Lady Gaga, and the songstress is continuing her tradition of cross-genre collaboration! From rappers Wale and Kid Cudi to R&B to queen Beyoncé, Gaga has a great track record. Who is she gearing up to record with next? The King of the South — Rapper T.I.
T.I. couldn't be more excited to work with Gaga, praising her undeniable skills last night at the BET Awards.
"She's a phenomenal talent, and I think that talent transcends through all genres, all races, all religions, all countries," T.I. told MTV News.
T.I. — who made his comeback to the stage last night after serving time in jail — said part of Gaga's appeal is her club-friendly hits.
"I believe that that's one thing that everybody can agree on. If you like a song and I like a song, then we going to both dance and all that here together," he said. "I think that that's what she's the best example of."
T.I. maintained tight-lipped about whether the pop star would make an appearance on his upcoming album, King Uncaged.
"I'm not gonna let no cats out of no bags," T.I. said. "I think I probably told y'all too much already."
In May, T.I. told MTV News that Gaga brought out a different side of him in the studio.
"See, this is the thing: We gonna go back in and record some more songs," he said. "But the one we have right now is titled 'Lick It.' I think we both have a tendency to shock the world in a lot of different ways. I just tuned in to another side of T.I."
