Are T.I. and Lil Wayne feuding?
There appears to be a tension between the two because of Wayne’s comments on the Black Lives Matter movement. The “Sucker for Pain” rapper has said in a couple of interviews that he does not believe in what the movement stands for because he has personally not experienced being discriminated against as a black man.
Most recently, Wayne guested on “Nightline” on Tuesday, Nov. 1. When asked about his thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement, Wayne said he’s a rich black person so that alone proves that the U.S. knows that black lives really do matter. When asked if he feels connected to the movement, Wayne maintained that he doesn’t feel connected to anything that doesn’t have anything to do with him.
T.I. took to Instagram to share his thoughts about Wayne’s comments. Tagging his fellow rapper on the post, T.I. shared how deep his friendship with Wayne is. The rapper said that since they know each other closely, he takes Wayne’s comments on a deeper level.
T.I. said: “Our relationship outside of music is what makes me sensitive to your disposition. I KNOW you wired a bit different than most other responsible adults, but still n---- U (sic) TRIPPING!!! … Our people are being oppressed!!! We are being hunted, captured & slaughtered out here daily!!!”
T.I. continued: “You have to get outta that bubble that you’ve been living in & get out here & educate yourself on what’s going on around US!!! I’m always here to share whatever knowledge or understanding I may have to assist your growth & development, but u (sic) MUST STOP this buffoonery & coonin’ you out here doin' (sic).”
While he did not mention any names, Wayne appears to have hit back at T.I. via Twitter. Shortly after T.I.’s message was posted, Wayne tweeted: “fk ya.”
