So, rapper T.I. has been in the spotlight lately since the news of his wife Tiny filing for divorce went public. The Atlanta rapper has remained cool and collected throughout this whole ordeal but he has had a few moments where he has had to put someone in check. For example, a few weeks ago rapper and radio host Young Joc tried to pry into T.I.’s business and ask questions about his divorce live on air. T.I. politely Joc that what was going on was none of his business and quickly changed the subject.
Recently, T.I. had to put a fan in check after the fan took the song “Whatever You Like” literally. T.I. was performing his 2008 hit “Whatever You Like” when a fan decided to get to touchy- feely with the Atlanta based rapper. A male fan decided what he would like is a handful of T.I.’s cakes. Yep, that’s right during mid performance a male fan decided to reach out and touch T.I.’s backside. Of course the whole ordeal was caught on video.
On the video, you can see T.I. performing while reaching out to show his audience some love. Then all of a sudden he stops in his tracks and that’s when he claims that he was touched in an unwanted way. T.I. then leans forward in the crowd to confront his touchy fan. You can hear Tip say the following:
“ Don’t put your hands on my a** again, bro! What the fu*k’s wrong with you, ni**a? I will fu*k you up! Never touch my moutherfu*king a**[…] We came to have a good time, but I ain’t with disrespect.”
You can check out the video for yourself below.
I wonder if there would have been any conversation if T.I. hadn’t of already spent some time in lock up. Back in the day, prior to his prison stint T.I. might have just laid hands on the guy instead of giving him a stern talking to.
So, what are your thoughts? Do you think Tip was justified in going off on the grabby fan? Should he have just ignored being grabbed and continued on with his performance? Let me know in the comments.
