T.I. on shaming Lil Wayne for his Black Lives Matter comments: “Everything I said I said out of love”


If you let T.I. tell it, publicly taking his big homie, Lil Wayne, to task over his so nasty so rude comments concerning the Black Lives Matter movement was one of the “hardest things,” the Grand Hustle rapper has ever had to do..

On Wednesday, Tameka “Tiny” Harris’ estranged “Us Or Else” rapping hubby jumped on airwaves via Sirius XM’s Sway In Morning show where he openly addressed his public scolding of the “Fireman,” rhymer back in November for  turning his back on the African American community in its time of need by insisting that he had “no connection” to BLM and claiming to have never experienced racism.

“It was a knee jerk reaction because I was confronted by my kids asking about it,” TIP spilled when asked about his social media reprimand of Tunechi– one in which he famously said, “I KNOW you wired a bit different than most other responsible adults, but still n***a U TRIPPING!!!! I don’t know what you goin thru, or what you are attempting to avoid but this s**t is absolutely unacceptable!!!!,” to his “Wit Me,” collaborator.

After explaining that he tried giving Wayne the benefit of the doubt when he said there was no such thing as racism a few weeks prior to revealing his lack of concern for Black Lives Matter’s plight, T.I. let it be known that he felt his longstanding association with the “A Milli,” lyricist gave him room to tell him about himself.

“One thing I will not do, I ain’t gonna let nobody sit around and bash bro,” T.I. served. “I feel like I have that relationship with him where I can say that. I’m not gonna sit around and listen to nobody else say that. However he feel about me saying that, me and him we can deal with that when we see each other. He still a legend, he still in my eyes one of the greatest to ever do what we do. In a way I kinda did it so the people wouldn’t be able to do it. I felt like everything I said I said out of love. And I used Instagram as a forum because it was such a public matter. It wasn’t really me speaking to him as much as it is speaking to the kids I know that’s following him.”

As previously reported on Cheekywiki, Lil Wayne’s initial response to TIP’s reaction to his statements was a simple “fk ya,” tweet posted to Twitter.
No word when/if the two rap gods plan to meet and peace things up in the future.
