T.I. elaborated, explaining how the use of the hologram got the business-minded emcee thinking. "I'm really thinking, 'Wait a minute - if I could get this same technology to perform in three cities at one time, then that's another stream of revenue!' I could do six shows a night in six different places."
"I might not be able to charge the same amount for all six shows - however, I'm sure I could get something going."
