T.I. talks about the Dirty Awards Brawl and chatting with Shawty Lo:
“We spoke,” Tip said. “I don’t know what that conversation meant. Shortly after we spoke … I felt that that conversation, those words, weren’t upheld. It was just a lot of nonsense. There’s no place in my life for that. There was a time in my life where I wanted no more than to indulge in that kind of activity. I went around looking for it, welcoming it. Now, I just done blown way past that. There’s no place in my life for it. What I told him really was, ‘I’m not trippin’.’ “
Tip and Lo have been going back-and-forth on record for more than a year, mainly over Lo’s jabs that Tip really isn’t from the ‘hood he claims to be from: Bankhead.
“It’s been over for me,” Tip said. “I’m looking way past this. I got way too much stuff that I’m involved in, that I’m looking forward to, to even be bothered with it. I wish you the best. Go do your thing. Peace unto everyone.”
Tip claimed that Lo’s words were insincere, because after that meeting, another fracas occurred.
“[After we talked], me and my artists go out there to do our song, and there’s a lot of negative feedback from right here in front of the stage,” he said. “That kinda sparked some things that I, once again, cannot condone, support or entertain. So I had to separate myself form the whole situation.
“I’m done,” he added. “Like I said, it’s a non-issue for me. I’m cool. I’m not trippin’. I wasn’t trippin’ before then, and I’m not trippin’ now.”
We wouldn’t be trippin’ about a rap beef if we were headed to the slammer either. Sh*t, there’s no security in the big house.
