Earlier this week, an online feud between T.I. and Boosie Badazz exploded over accusations of snitching. T.I. once again addressed supposedly admitting to pinning a drug charge on his deceased cousin.
“We caught those gun cases, Toot died. My lawyer said, ‘Well, you know, I could make everything go away if it was Toot’s,” said T.I. during a 2020 episode of his expediTIously podcast. “
Tip continued, “After he had passed, I had a talk with him. Toot said, ‘I’ll take all the charges you got. If you can walk away free and put it on me, g###### right. ‘Cause I’ll be damned if they gonna come and m############ extradite me from here.'”
Boosie: If You Cooperate With Law Enforcement You’re A Rat
Tip’s comments did not sit well with Boosie. The Baton Rouge-raised rhymer insisted T.I. is a “f###### rat” if the story was true. Boosie even announced he will no longer release his upcoming joint project with the Atlanta native.
“I don’t spare no m############ body. Because if you’re doing anything wrong, you’re doing anything criminal, and you cooperate with law enforcement to get you out of trouble, that means you’re cooperating. That means you’re a rat,” expressed Boosie.
“But I’ma tell you like this. When I saw that, I think, ‘T.I.’s f###### lying.’ I think he went up there and just got to f###### talking,” Boosie added. “You think something happens at 17, 18 years old, you’re gonna hold – as vocal as he is – that in all [this] damn time?! All this damn time for 20-some years, you’re gonna hold that in?! And it finally came out?!”
T.I. Tells TNN The Toot Story Was Not Real
Tip responded to Boosie Badazz in a lengthy Instagram post which included the Paperwork album creator taking issue with Boosie speaking on the matter on the internet and not privately. During a new interview, he also clarified his initial comments about using his deceased relative to avoid prison.
“It came from a conversation that my partner and I were having. That conversation was, ‘Hey bro, if me and you catch a case together and I die before you, it’s mine.’ He was like, ‘Nah, I can’t do that.’ [I said,] ‘Yes you can. It’s mine. Why can’t you? I don’t understand it,'” T.I. told Trap News Networx.
“So off of that conversation, I created a set of circumstances. And I thought that the embellishment was clear when I said I talked to my cousin and he told me,” said Tip. “Humor, sarcasm, and satire – it escaped them.
