What happened? During her second night at the Phillips Center, Taylor upped her street cred by calling up a fresh out of jail T.I. They performed “Live Your Life” with Taylor taking over Rihanna’s hook duties. To top it off, T.I., Nelly, and Young Jeezy—in town for the BET Hip Hop Awards—were all hanging out backstage.

Complex says: Ripping stages with Taylor Swift, making tracks with Pharrell, chilling at home with his kids—these are all good ideas for Tip. Partying with Diddy in the club and causing a scene? Not so much.
