Taylor Swift invited rapper T.I. to perform on stage with her at the Atlanta date of her "Speak Now" tour. She invited rappers, pop stars and friends to perform with her in every city of her mega tour! When Tip was released from jail after wrapping his 11-month prison sentence for a probation violation at the end of September, one of his first post-prison appearances was on stage with Swift.
"I was pleasantly surprised and confused… I was confused because it was a phenomenal opportunity… but it's T.I., being T.I…. and Taylor Swift being America's sweetheart. I'd just gotten out of prison, like two days, you know what I'm saying? Two days and all of a sudden my phone rang and I was like, 'For real?," Tip told MTV News. He was psyched, though.
