T.I. continues to build his acting career – most recently with a guest spot on the Kelsey Grammer led series Boss. Speaking with XXL, the Atlanta rapper talks specifics about his character, what fans can expect from him, and what he learned from the show’s star.
“My character’s name is Tray, Tray Rogers,” Tip began to explain earlier this week via phone from his mansion in Atlanta. “Tray is an active member of Lennox Gardens. Lennox Gardens is a centerpiece of a bargaining point for these politicians. It’s a required piece for guaranteed elections. Tray Rogers has realized that once you acquired influence and power in this area, you parlay that power and influence into the political world. Take off your jumpsuit and jogging suit and put on an Armani suit and begin in the world of politics. [My character] basically rose up to power and influence in the game in the projects and I’m beginning to take a crack at politics.”
The King says he indeed picked up a few gems from the legendary Grammer, who has brought such iconic characters as The “Simpson’s” Sideshow Bob and of course “Cheers’” Dr. Frasier Crane to life over the past three decades.
“Man, Kelsey man, he’s probably one of the best actors I’ve been around,” Tip beamed.
“He’s extremely groomed and trained as a thespian and actor from he school of Julliard and all that ole kinda sh*t. But he still maintains the down-to-earth-real-everyday-people attitude. That to me, says a lot. His sense of humor, he’s special.”
