T.I.’s collaborated with a lot of big names, from Jay-Z to Justin Timberlake. But his latest partner might just be the biggest yet. The Atlanta rapper and Martin Luther King, Jr. compatriot Andrew Young have formed a kindred spirt, with the civil rights leader serving as a mentor of sorts for Tip. “If you put him in jail for 20 years, that won’t do any good toward gun violence,” Young said. “The judge had the wisdom and courage to give him a chance and force him to think about the process.” [AP]

Rap/rock favorite Tyga has just inked a deal to serve as a spokesman for Shmack Clothing. The Los Angeles-based artist joins producer Nottz and dance crew the Jabbawockeez, who were previously the face of the garment line. Ads featuring the Lil Wayne-approved MC are set to run in media campaigns soon.—XXL staff
