Tip snagged the cover of the Feb/March 2013 issue of 'The Source' magazine, and in his interview the Atlanta rapper revealed some details about his first comedy role in the upcoming film "Identity Thief."
"It's my first comedy so I'm looking forward to seeing that. I just want to keep my tools sharp.... Different people see T.I. in different ways. As long as they ain't giving me a rapper. That's what I don't want to do. Anything else, I'd pretty much be open minded within reason of course."
T.I. also touched on his family life and keeping things in balance.
"Everybody's gonna have their ups and downs. Just because I'm a celebrity, that doesn't mean that I'm exempt from humanlike faults."
"Identity Thief", starring Melissa McCarthy and Jason Batemen, hits theaters this Friday.
