USA Rapper T.I. Plans to make South Africa his home if Donald Trump win the US elections

Rapper T.I., real name Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr, from Atlanta, Georgia, wants to make South Africa his home, should Donald Trump win the American elections.

The rapper, who made female rapper Iggy Azalea famous, told Sunday World, in a telephonic interview this week: "Man first thing I will do if Trump becomes president is take all my belongings and everyone I love and go away. I will move to South Africa man. Don't get me wrong I believe he is a very influential thinker and he has a lot going for him but ..."
The 35-year-old, born to Violeta Morgan and Clifford "Buddy" Harris, will perform in SA for the first time next weekend.
He would not divulge details on whether he will be bringing his whole famous family with, only saying he will be coming with "special people".
"I have been trying to come down to South Africa for a very long time man but we always had something else happening and we had a lot of hiccups but I have to say I am glad it is finally happening... I will be bringing very special people with me because I want them to share this beautiful moment with me," he says.
"There are some places you can go to and totally forget but South Africa is like one of those countries that you need to see and surely return because of the history, the landscapes and I cannot wait to see it all for myself."
The three-time Grammy Award-winning rapper is billed to perform on March 12 at the Jack Daniel's Boomtown event at Zoo Lake Sports Club in Parkview, Joburg.
"There will be fireworks at the show. I will be giving a lot of energy during my performance. I will be performing hits from the first album and some from my latest album which is due for release soon," T.I. said.
His forthcoming 10th studio album Dime Trap will be released under his Grand Hustle Records and distributed under media mogul Jay- Z's Roc Nation.
Among others, he features award-winning American rapper Young Thug, real name Jeffrey Lamar Williams, on his brand-new single Out of my Face whom he describes as a "hard worker".
"Young Thug is a young talented engineer who comes from the ghetto and has his mind set on making a success out of his career. He works very hard and he deserves everything coming for him," the rapper says.
T.I. describes his new album as a throw back to his first album Trap Muzik that went multi-platinum and launched his music career and record label.
T.I., who also goes by the name Tip, a childhood name, started his music career as a teenager when he signed his first major-label record deal in 1999, with Arista Records subsidiary, LaFace Records. He has since released nine studio albums.
The father of six, Domani, Messiah, Clifford-King, Clifford-Buddy, Deyjah, Leyah and Major with wife Tiny, whose real name is Tameka Cottle-Harris, has a successful reality television programme T.I &Tiny: Family Values that lays bare his private life.
On the show T.I and wife of six years Tiny, who is also a singer and songwriter, go on about their daily lives and show viewers how they juggle their family life and demanding careers.
About the elections he says he would rather back fellow presidency candidate Bernie Sanders.
