T.I., the self-crowned King of the South, will not tolerate anyone calling him a “has-been.” Especially considering that “no other rapper in history has had to endure the circumstances that [he] had to endure while maintaining a professional career.” 2 Pac, Shyne, Kanye, etc. may beg to differ, but that’s another post.
Months ago, Tip’s good friend Nelly visited Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club. Wendy Williams’ former subordinate, Charlamagne, ruffled feathers by labeling both T.I. and Nelly “cold” rappers. Read More →
