T.I. has fired back at his close friend and collaborator.
T.I. has completely slammed Lil Wayne on Instagram for his controversial comments on the Black Lives Matter movement earlier this week.
When asked about the movement on ABC’s Nightline, Weezy said: “[BLM] just sounds weird.
“I’m a young, black, rich motherf*ker; if that don’t let you know that America understand black motherf*kers matter these days, I don’t know what it is.
“Don’t come at me with that dumb sh*t,” he continued. “My life matter, especially to my b*tches.”
His comments enraged lots of people including his close friend and collaborator T.I., who has fired back on Instagram.
@liltunechi This is my son & daughter showing me this for the first time & asking me what you mean? I'm at a complete loss of words here. Wayne I've known you over a decade. Our daughters grew up together practically. Reginae' spent countless times at my house with Niq-Niq when you were in prison & you extended my daughter the same courtesy when I was in the same position. Our relationship outside of music is what makes me sensitive to your disposition. I KNOW you wired a bit different than most other responsible adults, but still nigga U TRIPPING!!!! I don't know what you goin thru,or what you are attempting to avoid but this shit is absolutely unacceptable!!!! You're disrespecting yourself,bringing shame on your family name & tarnishing your legacy. You have children (including mines prior to now) that have looked up to you. You have sons & a daughter that depend upon your leadership. Bro if you don't stand for something out here,all the money,jewelry,cars,mansions bandannas & hit records don't mean shit!!!! Our people are being oppressed!!! We are being hunted,captured & slaughtered out here daily!!! You have to get outta that bubble that you've been living in & get out here & educate yourself on what's going on around US!!! I'm always here to share whatever knowledge or understanding I may have to assist your growth & development,but u MUST STOP this buffoonery & coonin' you out here doin. You looking like somebody who has something to gain or lose by pretending like it's not as bad as BLM making it seem & you're not aware of an issue that needs to be addressed. That's what would be considered "Uncle Tom Shit".... I know U,YOURE BETTER THAN THIS!!!!! I've been proud to call myself a fan & a friend of Lil Wayne ,but if that must end in order to stand up for those who can't do it for themselves...So be it. If you're not prepared for a question in an interview,say No Comment Bro. But stop embarrassing yourself & everyone out here who's been supporting you. There is no middle ground. Oppression knows no neutral party,either you're part of the oppressed,or you with the oppressor. There is no such thing as oppression not affecting you. It's #USorELSE out here
“I'm at a complete loss of words here,” T.I. wrote in the passionate letter.
“Wayne I've known you over a decade […] Our relationship outside of music is what makes me sensitive to your disposition.
“I KNOW you wired a bit different than most other responsible adults, but still ni**a U TRIPPING!!!! I don't know what you goin thru, or what you are attempting to avoid, but this shit is absolutely unacceptable!!!!”
T.I. then continued to accuse Lil Wayne of disrespecting himself and bringing shame on his own family by using his fame and riches to ignore the issues affecting the black community.
Since the interview was aired, Lil Wayne has attempted to clarify his comments , claiming he was agitated by the news reporter.
However following T.I.’s explosive rant, the rapper appears to have taken a different approach.
“F* ya,” he said on Twitter.
