T.I. Thanks Eminem For Helping Him Over Come His Drug Addiction Plus Kid Rock, Angaleena Presley & T.I. ‘Care’ Video
T.I. has a lot of things going on right now since his second release from prison including his music possibly collaborating with B.O.B, a new reality show T.I. and Tiny ‘The Family Hustle’ and getting back into his acting.
In a recent interview with Billboard T.I. salutes Eminem for helping him overcome his drug addiction. T.I. had been through a couple of oral surgeries in which he was prescribed pain killers which soon led to a heavy use of prescription drugs. T.I. talks about fearing he had developed a drug problem, reaching out to Eminem (who has famously dealt with addiction himself), for advice.
“I asked him how he knew he was an addict,” T.I. told VIBE in 2010.
“[He said] basically, if you put yourself in harm’s way… if you risk that, you’ve got to assume that there is something fundamentally wrong with your thought process.”
T.I. continues to talk about what Eminem has got going on in the game right now giving him much love and respect. They have not been in contact since T.I. was just recently released but T.I. mentions the ‘the dots just didn’t connect.’ I am sure we will be seeing and hearing more with T.I. and Eminem.

With T.I.back in the game and on the hustle, clean and sober that is, he has been giving words of wisdom to those suffering and battling drug addictions. Just this morning I caught this music video and thought it was very fitting. Here is Kid Rock feat Angaleena Presley and T.I. ‘Care’!
