After stepping on a feminist land-mine, rapper T.I. is eating his words. In a recent inteview with The Whoolywood Shuffle, T.I. slammed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton saying that a woman would be “too emotional” to be head of state. Public outrage promted him to release an official apology via Twitter, followed by a video on his Facebook Page.

This raises the question, why are we talking to rappers about politics? To add to the irony, T.I. cannot legally cast a ballot due to the felony charge on his record. That being said, T.I. can still legally run for office, which got us thinking, how would T.I. square off against Hillary on everyday issues facing our Commander-in-Chief? We set the odds.
