T.I. Says Wife Tiny Harris Wasn’t Behind Inspiration For “Stay”
There seems to be quite a bit of music coming out of the Harris household from both T.I. and his Grammy award-winning wife, Tiny. Around the time Tiny released her new single, “What the F— You Gon Do?”, fans also got the first listen of T.I.’s new track “Stay.” But while Tiny claims that the couple’s latest music was inspired by issues in their love life , T.I. revealed that may not entirely be the case.
“As much as people would like to associate it to things that are personal to me... the way that it makes better sense in my mind, if I kind of remove myself from it and just listen to the record and imagine as though I was creating a fictional set of circumstances, sprinkled with some reality," he explained on Houston’s radio station 93.7. The rapper went on to add, "It's easier for me to conceptualize it that way, that way it don't feel like people all up in my business."
Hmm… judging from the lyrical content of the song, however, the song — which details a man asking his lady love to stay with him despite his not-so-great behavior — appears to have more reality mixed in than T.I. would like to admit to.
But at the end of the day, we can’t really be too sure about the nature of T.I.’s inspiration. After all, art doesn’t always have to imitate life.
Do you think T.I.’s new single “Stay” is about Tiny or a circumstance he made up? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
