According to T.I., the presidential race is a subject fit for a king.

Or at least King magazine's politically-themed November issue, for which he served as guest editor.

"When I'm speaking to young people and they say, 'Who you voting for?' I say, 'Well, what you think's wrong with the country?," says the rapper, 28, in a roundtable discussion. "What problems do you need to be fixed? OK, then cut your PlayStation off and turn to CNN and listen to these people."

Rapper T.I.: Mariah Carey Is a 'Phenomenal Talent'

Originally posted 07/29/2008 12:25PM

Rapper T.I., who just finished working with Mariah Carey on her new music video, "I'll Be Lovin' U a Long Time," tells PEOPLE that he enjoyed the experience with the singer. "She's a phenomenal talent," he says. "Extremely professional."

The hip-hop star has a lot currently going on. He's about to drop a new album, Paper Trail and begin shooing a new movie. But the one thing he wishes he could do is vote. His recent conviction on federal weapons possession charges makes him ineligible to cast a ballot. (He's currently on probation and will begin serving a 12-month sentence in March.)

So the 27-year-old multi-platinum selling artist decided to get other young people to do their civic duty as the spokesperson for the Hip-Hop Caucus's new Respect My Vote campaign.

• He's under house arrest in Atlanta awaiting trial on weapons charges, but rapper T.I. got good news from a federal magistrate judge on Thursday: He can leave the house ... to go to church. The rapper (real name: Clifford Harris) can attend Easter services at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. No word, though, if he can squeeze in a brunch or an egg hunt during his five-plus hours of freedom.
