According to Billboard, T.I. and John Legend have been nominated for a Tony Award for their involvement in SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical. They are competing in the Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for Theatre category.
In other news, T.I. has opened up about a conversation he had with Kanye West. During a recent radio interview, Tip said,
“I just happened to have seen Kanye and when I saw him, I wasn’t aware of all of the controversy. We exchanged numbers, because we hadn’t seen each other since I got out of prison. After I left, I started seeing [the social media controversy] and by the time I got up the next day, I saw something else had happened. He and I stepped outside, and I said, ‘What’s up, bro? I’m sure you’ve got it all figured out. What’s the punchline?’ And he was like, “Yo, free thought man. I felt free to be an independent thinker. The longer I spent talking with him, the more I started to see what he was saying. If you just hear him say something in 10 seconds or 15 seconds, you’re going to think he’s lost his mind. But the more he speaks about it, even when I don’t agree with it, I feel like he’s working through his own personal journey.”
I feel the same way, Tip. Congrats to T.I. and John Legend on their Tony nod!
