T.I.'s No Mercy EP 3: My Style vs. Eminem's Style [From The Vaults]

by The Live Room powered by Warner Music • 156,860 views

T.I. talks about his triumph from tragedy and the making of his tracks "Castle Walls" and "That's All She Wrote" from his No Mercy record in this track-by-track commentary for From The Vaults on...

For the same reason why anybody else doesn't use good vocabulary they just don't feel like using it in everyday average conversations i bet you don't use a colorful vocabulary when your talking to someone you know

T.I is better than Em? Nothing against T.I, but he can not fuck with Eminem. If you prefer T.I over Em, there is nothing wrong with that becasue every has the right to their opinion. However, you need to jump back to reality bro becasue T.I has not released an album thats on par with the MMLP.

Eminem hasn't been good since the slim shady lp his best album. After that he started going downhill encore sucked relapsed sucked recovery sucked bad meets evil sucked he's a overrated commercial rapper. T.I. when was he ever good.

I like how none of the top comments are about how Vastly large T.I's vocabulary is or. How smart as a Man/Father he is. Is that all u guys care about is his rap ? -__-"

T.I.- one of the few rappers that know what the hell he's talking about.

I agree his earlier albums (other than relapse) are better, but to say its overated is crazy. The fact that you think T.I is "way better than em" clearly shows you do not have an ear for hip hop. Listen to his lyrics before posting bullshit.

And Eminem and T.I aren't garbage mainstream rappers, and i certainly do not listen to any of those people you stated, i don't even listen to rap anymore but if i did i would most likely pick up a Biggie joint or Chino XL my two best rappers.

i know this video its old but T.I and eminem lost their wing-man all the hater think eminem won't make it just cause his white and only cause it black african american he didn't give a fuck about what people say about him he till spittin in the booth eminem and T.i has a rough life grewing up as a kid and your sayin T.i,eminem talk about real shit
Report spam or abuse
Everyone's arguing about who's better; why has no one had a comment that sounds like this: this motherfucker is talking about some real shit. This is why I've always liked T.I. not only as a person, but a rapper as well: he thinks, and he's meaningful (not always of course). This is the first time I've actually enjoyed hearing a rapper talk.

You prove how biased you are by saying that Em's music is trash. You are speaking based off purely your own opinions and that is it. You ignore what everyone else thinks. I have said before, I prefer T.I.'s flow right now, but to say he wasn't influenced by eminem is Ludicrous. Eminem is probably the most critically acclaimed and best selling rap artist ever. He didn't influence T.I. he influenced the entire game. It is your opinion that Em is trash but 99% of people will disagree with you.

He's a genius. Not just with his work, but also the stuff that comes out of his mouth.

You can be successful, but still not be that great. Em dissed him subliminaly all throughout Recovery, people just haven't noticed. 'The Carter IV' was one of the best selling albums of last year, because Lil Wayne dick riders (aka his fans) bought the album. I'm not saying Weezy is shit, he's okay. His fans just hype him up and ride his dick like there's no tomorrow and say he's 'the best rapper alive' which he's not-which causes people to hate him, due to his annoying ass fans.

Report spam or abuse
@fagbohun19 Yeah, I understand that you got something entirely different out of the interview than i did. You think that if you work hard for something then you shouldn't complain when you've attained what you were working so hard for. And I believe that too. But then again the end result of our dreams can never always meet our expectations because given the chance to see ourselves with it already acquired...would we pursue it? Who knows...

I hate when celebrities complain about the cost of being who they are. You worked your whole life for it you probably stepped on peoples toes and backstabbed and all that. NOW you are where u always dreamed of and NOW you wanna complain that we dont know what goes on inside your "castle walls" cut the BS. I still love T.i though

If nobody is playing paper trail years from now then he isn't even remembered at all, so to say that his albums not being played years from now not affecting his legacy is ludicrous. Stan is widely considered one of the greatest tracks of all time, for you to say otherwise is completely ridiculous, and for you to put it down with your man crush statement and ignore the fact that Eminem tackled a social issue that nobody else would think of doing and is just as ridiculous.

You are only one type of influence, basically you are telling me that you can only be influenced by repeating the same lyric (which would go against your eminem is influenced by ti point) or name dropping even though stylistically their flows are very similar, even though em sounds less and less the same since paper trail. FYI arguing based off your opinions and feelings is the most textbook version of bias
Report spam or abuse
What has T.I. done that is on the same level as Stan. Slim Shady LP came out 15 years ago almost and people still listen to it including me, its on my Ipod and I rarely skip those songs. I really like T.I. and I think he has been one of the best for 4 or 5 years now but I don't know if I will be listening to paper trail in 2021
Report spam or abuse
Obviously you are a T.I. fan and look specifically for more interviews from him (which oftentimes are just the same interviews used by a different site days or even weeks later.) than you would for Eminem because you are part of the small minority that thinks he is trash and can't even respect him for what he has done even though you dislike him.

Honestly, there are very few artists I support (meaning purchase their albums and go see them on tour) because I find that after a while artists start slacking and end up sounding line everyone else instead of staying in their lane and staying true to themselves. Of the few artists I support, TI is one of them. I just enjoy his music and I love to hear him speak because he doesn't open his mouth and a bunch of bull comes out. He actually has something to say.

I commend T.I. A humble man who realizes what living life is really about and has his priorities straight. It is good to see when a man weathers a storm, then gets things right in life to begin a second chance. He doesn't let his talent go to his head. Keeping it real is what it's all about. God bless.

here's the scoop fella: lawyers complain. doctors complain. no job or career is perfect, no matter how hard you've worked for it. everyone who works hard to get where they are don't think about the negatives or else they'll never get there. in T.I.'s case, it's not so much complaining as it is simply pointing out there are two sides to the coin when it comes to being famous. dunno about you but I'd hate the feeling of not being able to take my kid to Disneyworld because of my fame

So you are telling me that Em learned from T.I. even though most of his best work was before ti even put out an album, if anything em's style as a rapper has changed away from ti's style since ti has become more popular, and i am pretty sick of you using album covers as an example when it is all marketing the artist just gets to give the ok. and it seems like em talks about ti more because he has more interviews than ti and people care more about what em thinks about other artists cause hes king

The difference? TI is just like any other rapper these days. All talk about money and fucking your bitch. I still like TI though.

@Altonbr1 I agree with you, I would much rather be rich and not famous at all because I think being famous is really overrated and very stressful. I know I wouldnt want my every move to be watched and in the public eye which I would not have no privacy at all. So although I dont know how he feels, I can definitely relate to what T.I. is saying because I would hate to have all eyes on me 24/7.

@fagbohun19 The thing about it is..He worked hard because he saw fame as a way to get rich. After the fame was acquired then came the riches...In his head, my goal is complete, I'm rich....But looming in the dark is still the fame and everything that comes with it. The bad and the good. Something that he may never be able to shake for the rest of his life.. No thank you. Not for me. I still say give me the money and I'll run with that. Keep the fame.
Report spam or abuse
@fagbohun19 Having fame doesnt mean you want to be stalked....It's not when you poor in the streets you think, "shit if i blow up..all these people gonna be in my business and I wont have time to my self and my family." Hell no you dont think that...all you see is the damn castle like he said. You're on the outside looking in just like he was when he was "normal". I wish i was rich...not famous..kids confuse those two things...
