T.I. is sick and tired of not getting the respect he deserves. The self-proclaimed King of the South has trended recently after challenging 50 Cent to a Verzuz Battle. While T.I.P. is the King of The South, Fif is the King of The Trolls. In true 50 Cent fashion, he poked fun at the ATL rapper’s challenge by posting a previous crime stoppers video featuring TIP. 50 even comedically stated that “somebody passed the weed they gave Smokey in Friday.”
Well, T.I. has not taken the disrespect lightly. He recently sat down to chop it up with a renowned radio personality, Big Boy. In the interview, the “Live Your Life” rapper channels his inner Birdman and demands respect for his work in music.
“I don’t think y’all really know who I am,” exclaimed TIP. “I don’t think y’all remember what I’ve done bro. Just cause I don’t jump up, step up on tables, kick over tables, and demand you to pay attention to me, that don’t mean… Listen, man. You ‘gon have to put mine up there. When you talk about careers, and legacies, and accomplishments, you gotta put me up there… You gotta go talk to Jay-Zs, you gotta go talk to Kanyes. You gotta go talk to Lil Waynes.”
T.I. further mentions his legendary posse cut with the aforementioned legends. Many can recall their historic moment at the 2008 Grammys. There no telling if the Verzuz battle will happen or not, but T.I. wants his flowers as a living legend.
