T.I Opens Up How He Lost A Role In Drumline To Nick Cannon



Tip recently appeared on the popular podcast Club Shay Shay and spilled the tea to Shannon Sharpe that he had gotten to know producer Dallas Austin, who was working in the Drumline movies.

“He was telling me about his first film,” T.I. remembered. “I was always like, ‘Yo bruh, put me in it.’ And he was like, ‘Aight, yeah man. Say less.’ He sent me to go read and I read and they were like, ‘Man, you got to learn how to play the drums.’ And I was like, ‘I could play like I could play the drums.’ They were like, ‘Nah, you gotta learn how.’ I was like, ‘Man, I don’t wanna do that.

He initially did not know that he was reading for Nick Cannon’s role. “I just didn’t want to commit myself to it at the time. It wasn’t there,” he added. “But I read, and I didn’t get it, and that movie went on to be Drumline. Yeah, I was reading for Nick Cannon’s part.”
