The Making of T.I.'s "Trap Muzik"

"Long Live da Game"

Producer: Sanchez Holmes
T.I.: “I was still living that lifestyle [before the album]. I was on probation then. My manager Jason Geter challenged me to step out on faith, to not live the life that I was living before. If something bad happened, I would have all the opportunity to take it away. So I was like alright, cool. Right then, I got a record deal and things started paying off. It’s been popping ever since.

 

So many people depend on me for their livelihood. I was literally the determining factor between living free versus living a continuum of that lifestyle. - T.I.

 

“So many people depend on me for their livelihood. I was literally the determining factor between living free versus living a continuum of that lifestyle. I was the only one who could take a shot when the clock was running down, and win the game not just for myself, but for everybody, and more.”

Sanchez Holmes: “The whole story in that song, it’s so blatant. You can listen to that record and it’s almost like watching a movie. He appreciated the music that I was doing. I appreciated his creativity because he was turning my beats into flowers.”
