It’s not gonna be as long as it was when we went out there and voted for Mr. Obama. So it’s extremely important for everyone to get out there, and I will be leading by example and be on of the first ones in line.”

“If we want something better, we’ve got to do something better,” T.I. said. “And to be perfectly honest with you, this nation was built on democracy, and with democracy, you appoint your leaders. The nation has appointed our leader.” The rappers then met with the rallygoers and spoke with the media.

I call it ‘Theater of the Mind’, it’s just like radio. You know I was in radio before of course. Perception is reality, so with this album I took a whole lot of different sound effects. Sometimes I’m telling stories, and it’s about creating a perfect picture in every single song.”
