T.I. discusses new business ventures with Forbes [Video]

Forbes caught up with T.I. at last week’s SXSW festival and got him talking about a few of the many irons he currently has in the fire, both in and outside of the music business. The Atlanta MC’s current interests include his next album Trouble Man, a full release schedule for his Grand Hustle roster, and a potential movie with Tom Cruise. Big business, kid.

And these things are all addition to his upcoming run on Starz’ political drama Boss alongside Kelsey Grammer and Sanaa Lathan — which he considers his chance to really “test my chops” — and a second season of his popular VH1 reality show, The Family Hustle. Tip also claims that representatives from Marvel Comics have been showing interest in involving him with one of their popular franchises, a story he also touched on in a recent interview with DJ Drama.
