T.I. covers the Dec/Jan 2012 issue of VIBE where he reveals his controversial thoughts on Bin Laden, the penal system, the gay community, and blast folks who think Tiny should have taken the charge for him. See the highlights inside…..

It’s been a while since T.I. gave an in-depth interview, and in the latest issue of VIBE magazine (out on Dec. 6), he unloads a mouthful of controversial opinions.  Whether it’s doubting the death of Bin Laden, defending homophobes or lashing out at people who attack his wife, you’re likely going to give him the side-eye.  One way or the other.

On people who say Tiny should have taken the drug charge for him –

“I’ma tell you, 50 Cent and anybody else, we not gonn’a  have no discussion about what my ole lady should’a, would’a, couda done for anything as it pertains to me,” begins his rant. “We ain’t gonn’a do that. I’m the only one in my family that’s gonna take a lick when it pertains to the legal system. Since me, none of my other family members have seen a jail cell. Nobody. I’m the last one. The buck stops here. I feel that a person that stands behind [his woman for a criminal charge] is a coward anyway.”

VIBE: I doubt she would have gotten any time. T.I.: She wasn’t gonna catch it period, ’cause I’m there. That wasn’t even a consideration. Even if she asked me to I would’ve been like, “Nah, you trippin’. “

So you didn’t feel you were more valuable to your family, employees and business partners on the street? That’s a discussion between me and another man. Not with the mother of my children. Not with the nurturer of my household.
