This past weekend, T.I. had an outburst during a performance of his Hot 100 No. 1 hit “Whatever You Like,” after a male fan allegedly touched his butt.
In a clip from the concert, Tip told the fan, “Don’t put your hands on my ass again, bro,” T.I. said to the fan. “What the f–k’s wrong with you, n—a? I will f–k you up! Never touch my motherf–king ass […] We came to have a good time, but I ain’t with the disrespect.”
Outside of his recent spat, T.I. has been vocal on the political front. Last week, he penned an open letter to president Donald Trump in hopes of highlighting his concerns and expectations over the next four years.
“As you transition into your role as the President of the United States, you will undoubtedly be one of the most watched people in the history of the world,” he wrote. “So, I can’t help but ask in the midst of our nation’s calamity and discord: What do you want US to see?”
“As we continue to go on together as a nation, I apologize in advance for the friction and hostility that inevitably comes with US feeling years of pain, neglect, resentment and not being heard,” T.I. continued. “I am hopeful that we will not go and repeat the mistakes of the past. I am hopeful that we will all work to right our wrongs and become better men and women and a better nation.”
