In addition to claiming that Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Rihanna and Lil Wayne are making timeless music, T.I. says it's way easier for a non-talented individual to "make it" and get paid in the music industry.

"(It's easier today) for some that don't have true talent," T.I. said with a laugh and smile appearing on "Larry King Now." "You can be laughed at and still be noticed and accepted and paid to do this today. Back then that wasn't acceptable…. You can be a celebrity. You can be famous for being famous."

See what he else he says about timeless music, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Jeezy and more in the clip below.

In a second clip from his interview with Larry King, T.I. went on to say that he felt different about "Blurred Lines," the controversial (said to be misogynistic) yet chart-topping song he appeared on with Robin Thicke and Pharrell.

"I thought "Blurred Lines" was a celebration of beauty. I mean I thought that it was kind of, in a sense just telling women how wonderful we thought they were," said T.I. "If you're going to accuse me of misogyny, you have much better songs of mine to pick from (instead of that one)."
