After receiving backlash and advice from 50 Cent for his “Handle your beefs in your city”, T.I. responds back and provides clarification.
On Monday afternoon T.I. posted the following on his Instagram account, “Atlanta is a beautiful progressive city filled with black excellence. We uplift each other and win together. Stop coming here to kill each other. That s— is played out.” Adding to his statement T.I. also the following in his caption, “Handle YOUR beefs in YOUR city. Thx in advance.”
These comments did not sit well with those close to the late King Von, as they felt it was targeted to his death early Friday morning (November 6) outside an Atlanta hookah lounge.
One of those angered by T.I.’s comments was King Von’s sister who asked 50 Cent to check the King of the South. “And these r facts! But the energy he always putting in ppl business need to be the same energy he need to make it right wit his daughter! Now Wea is my brother. @50cent get on his a–,” she wrote on her IG story.
Fif quickly screenshot Von’s sister IG story post, and advised T.I. in the caption, “A @troubleman31 you gotta chill, you bugging for saying anything. They got casualties this is real sh–, i don’t know what you was thinking but re think it now. They are hurting, they love that boy he was a way out. I bet you don’t even realize they will kill you for what you just said. 🤦♂️what hood you from again? come on now it’s quiet time. 🤐”
Hours later on Monday night (November 9), T.I. responded back to 50 Cent with a screenshot of his iPhone Notes app where he wrote, “I don’t speak ill of my allies. My last post had nothing to do with King Von. Y’all grossly mistaken, I have no motive or intention to do harm or malice to cats I’m cool wit. My family’s hearts goes out to them and I’ve expressed this the people in his life that matter most in this situation. That’s all I’m concerned with.”
TIP isn’t surprise of the backlash as stated in his caption, “But I know IG ain’t da place for understanding & miserable people love to keep up shit. Be Eazy ✌🏽.”
