Skilly Magazine presents 5 pieces of advice from 5 very successful musicians.

# 1. Music advice from T.I.

“I say first and foremost, you’ve got to sound right. Perfect your music. Then make music that girls like. Think about what girls would like. Most likely guys would like it too. I always tell my people I am heavily influenced by two people. I look at 2pac and LL Cool J, and I try to do exactly what they did and cover the ground they did. You can be a gangsta and lover all in the same person.” – T.I. (2007)
