T.I. is speaking out about the continued “Blurred Lines” litigation.
The rapper, who was found earlier this month by a jury to not have infringed on Marvin Gaye‘s 1977 tune “Got to Give It Up,” says he is not worried that Gaye’s family has filed a motion to still hold him accountable. Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke have been ordered to pay $7.4 million to the Gaye estate because of their song’s similarity to Gaye’s.
“I have nothing but admiration and respect for the legacy and the estate of Marvin Gaye, and I have nothing but support and extreme admiration for my partner Pharrell,” T.I. told TMZ.
“I know that I’m a writer, I’m a creator — I don’t steal from anybody creatively when I make my music,” he said. “I know that, and I think that anybody with common sense is going to be able to see it whenever they listen to it.”
T.I., who can be seen later this year in the films Get Hard, Entourage and Ant-Man, added, “I’ll be exonerated because I know I did the right thing.”
