Jenkins: “Since you are in the Marvel cinematic universe…Do you have knowledge of Marvel and comic books? How deep does it go?”
Tip: “I mean, listen. I probably had like one summer that I collected comic books.”
Jenkins: “What kind?”
Tip t.i harris answer
Tip: “Man, all kinds. X-Men, Wolverine, Spiderman – I wasn’t really into Superman that much – what else did I have? I think I had some Incredible Hulk. But anyway, so over that summer – I think it might have been ‘91 or ’92 – over that summer, I collected a bunch of collectibles, cards, comics and what not. Probably had – I got up to, maybe, about 500… So, I went back after the summer, spent the summer in New York collecting comics, came back to Atlanta and someone had broken into my house and stole my comic books. So, I said, ‘Man, f*ck that. I’m not starting over. Totally not starting over.’ That was it for me.”
Jenkins: “We’ve got to find that person who stole T.I.’s comic books.”
