At the MTV Movie Awards Sunday (June 6), T.I. appeared on the red carpet and talked about his pick for the evening’s biggest award: Best Movie. The rapper said he’s still undecided on who to vote for. “I’m split between ’Avatar’ and ’The Hangover,’ ” he revealed. “I love both of them for totally different reasons.”
T.I. celebrated the fact that the Movie Awards were the first such ceremony he’s attended since being released from jail earlier this year. “This is actually the first awards show that I’ve had the pleasure of attending since my brief hiatus,” T.I. said. “So it’s nostalgic in a sense. The last year when these awards were on, I was watching it from a much different position.”
T.I. revealed that in the wake of his recently released mixtape, F— a Mixtape , he would be releasing his next album, The King Uncaged, on August 17. But he also indicated that his post-prison comeback will happen across a number of media — including, appropriately enough, at the movies.
“It gives me great pleasure to introduce this film ’Takers’ to the world,” he explained. “It comes out August 20, and I’m also a producer on that film. It’s my first film as a producer and it’s an outstanding project with an ensemble cast. I worked with a phenomenal group of talented people and I’m happy to be here.”
