On Vevo ‘Let It Ride’ we go to Atlanta for an exclusive interview with T.I. about his impressive car collection. Surrounded by his favorite whips, he tells fans about how his uncle used to pick him up in a turquoise Porsche with LL Cool J’s “Going Back To Cali” cranking. The superstar MC was 14 when he bought his own first car, a 1985 Cutlass Supreme. He shows us his Rolls-Royce Ghost, and a full-loaded Range Rover Autobiography, and a Jeep Grand Cherokee (it’s all about “velocity” he says). T.I. sees cars as an “extension of a man’s personality.”

No, this is not a Sneak Peek. We’re sorry if you were looking for that. This is just Curren$y, one of the flyest rappers out, discussing and comparing two of his favorite collections: cars and kicks. Fresh off of NBA All-Star Weekend in The Crescent City, the New Orleans-bred artist invites us over to chill out, talk kicks and analyze his automobile collection in relation to some of his favorite sneakers. In a sense, welcome to a showing of The Drive-In Theatre.
Listen to those engines!
