TI has spoken out about his stage duet with Taylor Swift during the Atlanta stop of her 'Speak Now' tour in October.

The 'Billboard Woman of the Year' singer directly called TI to ask if he could join her on stage for a duet of his single 'Live Your Life', which will be featured in TI's reality series TI and Tiny: The Family Hustle.

"I was pleasantly surprised and confused," TI told MTV News. "I was confused because I know it's a phenomenal opportunity, but being TI - the Rubberband Man - and Taylor Swift being America's Sweetheart, I had just gotten out of prison like two days [earlier] and all of a sudden my phone rings."

He added: There were significant differences in a Taylor Swift show from a TI show. You could take the biggest of the biggest hip-hop artists - even a Kanye West or Jay-Z show - and their concerts or tours, they gon' be just a world away from a [Taylor Swift] show."

In 2009, TI was sentenced to one year and one day in prison for federal weapons charges.

TI revealed that he wasn't sure how his sentence would affect his life, but said that he doesn't want to return to prison in the future.

"I don't know what effect this will have on my life moving forward but I'm certainly sick and motherf**king tired of going to jail, juve, prison, the pen, correctional facilities or whatever else you want to call it," he said.

TI and Tiny: The Family Hustle premieres tonight (Monday) at 9 pm ET/PT on VH1.
