    To dick pic, or not to dick pic?

    Much like King Solomon before him, T.I., the Kang of the South, has been blessed with both a soothing disposition and the trenchant wisdom of a grandfatherly wizard.

    On a recent trip to the BuzzFeed offices, we asked T.I.P. to render a "yay" or "nay" verdict on 16 of the most contentious issues of our time. Here's what he said.

    1. Socks with sandals

    "Nay at any given point or period, no excuses whatsoever. If they're Adidas slides, maybe I'll allow it."

    2. Kale

    "As far as leafy greens go, it's all right."

    3. Sunglasses indoors

    "If it doesn't affect my vision and it's part of my ensemble, I don't see a reason to take them off just because I walked inside."

    4. SoulCycle

    "I'm more of a runner, personally."

    "I don't know. I mean, I have before... Do I know who I'm sending it to? Did she send me one first? Definitely no Instagram, but FaceTime I can get behind."

    6. Pumpkin Spice Lattes

    "Pumpkin spice? What happened to caramel and vanilla?"

    7. Toe shoes

    David J. Bertozzi / BuzzFeed

    "Nah. Too close to sandals."

    8. Phablets

    David J. Bertozzi / BuzzFeed

    "Keep it simple. I use a [normal-sized] iPhone and a laptop."

    9. Google Glass

    David J. Bertozzi / BuzzFeed

    "Nah. You're not gonna see me wearing that."

    10. Olives

    David J. Bertozzi / BuzzFeed

    "I don't like them. I don't like anything, clearly."

    11. "All About That Bass"

    David J. Bertozzi / BuzzFeed

    "It's a good song. Maybe not for me, but it's a good song."

    12. Country rap

    David J. Bertozzi / BuzzFeed

    "I don't have too much experience with it, but Nelly's done it a couple of times. I'd definitely do a record with Taylor Swift. B.o.B did one."

    13. Green juice

    David J. Bertozzi / BuzzFeed

    "No."

    14. Online dating

    David J. Bertozzi / BuzzFeed

    "Why can't you go out in the world and get people yourself? It's kind of creepy, isn't it? Just a little bit? Don't get me wrong, I don't see anything wrong with going online to find where you can go to meet people, I could see that. But chatting and profiles and all that? Nah."

    15. Twitter beef

    David J. Bertozzi / BuzzFeed

    "If it's really that serious, you probably wanna wait 'til you see 'em."

    16. Gluten

    David J. Bertozzi / BuzzFeed

    "I'm with gluten."
