T.I. Avoids Involvement In Young Jeezy And Gucci Mane's Feud

During an interview with HotSpotAtl, T.I. says his focus is on his net worth and not the renewed beef between fellow Atlanta rappers Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy.

T.I. is no stranger to beef, having had a memorable back and forth with Lil Flip as well as briefly being referenced in the mild feud between Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks. But, as it regards fellow Atlanta emcees Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane, Tip isn’t looking to choose a side or play peacemaker for the time being.

“Man, I got the money in mind,” T.I. responded, when asked about the beef in an interview with Hot 107.9 FM. “I got the sights set on a big sack with a lot of money in it, man. I’m talkin’ like multi-million dollar conglomerate type stuff. Anything that’s not of that nature and understanding, I don’t really see it. So I really don’t know what you’re asking me about.”

Earlier in the week, Gucci Mane took to Twitter stating that if his former collaborator, T.I. wanted to get involved he could. Tip had no explanation for why Gucci would call him out, but he reiterated his desire to stay focused on financial matters.

“A lot of times in life, things happen and we never know why,” T.I. added. “Guess what? The focus is what counts. I’m focused on that sack champ. I’m trying to get myself where Dre, Puff, Jay and them are at—I’m talking net worth wise.”

The full interview, which also includes T.I. explaining how he chose his latest acting roles can be seen below.

    EVERYBODY IN THE INDUSTRY SCARED TO FUK WITH GUCCI, Fuck record sales he's prolly the only rapper that raps about what he's actually done... And he gotta murder charge thrown out for killing jeezy' goon for lack of evidence ... True story ... THE TRUTH .. Now get back on tip's dick you bitches

    T.I. falling off ... Jeezy slowly declinin' ... Gucci aint lyrical, he knows that, so does everybody else but he make hits tho ..

    • BP

      neither Jeezy or T.I. is fallin off... Jeezy's one of the last rappers recently to go gold, and we barely got a glimpse of Trouble Man, either way I'm sure it'll be above & beyond No Mercy cause he rushed that shit 'fore he went back in the pen

  • gsonii

    Gucci ain't no realer than anyone else and if he was he would not have to keep using that supposed killing of Jeezy boy to make himself look real. Far as T.I. I hope he does well with this album then find himself something to do. Never really liked the way he let too many people get away with shit from still fucking with Game and Buck after they were in on that shit with Luda on Stoomp to letting Drake say some shit about going back to prison is not a option on his song.

    Anybody who cares enough to beef with Gucci Mane should kill themselves. The guy is a loser, his records don't sell shit, critics laugh at him every time he drops summin, the guy is irrelevant, his only purpose is to drag other people down to his undesirable level. Jeezy himself might have beef with him in the streets but I doubt he's gonna care enough to a guy who's last album, that appeal bullshit, sold less then 200K and got shitty reviews everywhere. Beef with him in real life if you want but if you waste studio & interview time on this bum your a dumbass

    Gucci Mane is a weak rapper but nobody fucks with him in the streets. If T.I. The Informant start fuckin with Gucci then T.I. aint safe no more in Atlanta!

  • BLACK

    TIP KNOW HE DONT WANT IT WITH GOOCH DA DON!! BRRRRRRR

  • YEBO

    FUCK THAT SHIT, BOTH JEEZY AND GUCCI ARE LYRICAL GENIUSES WITH PERFECT BEAT SELECTION, BEEF IS FOR FUCKING NEW YORK MORONS AND ATTENTION BITCHES LIKE 50 CENT OR DMX, SOUTHERN MUSIC WAS ALWAYS ABOUT BEING A GROWN MAN RAPPING ABOUT REAL STUFF, NOT TRYING TO INSULT SOMEBODY DIRECTLY. JEEZY, GUCCI, T.I. AND LUDA SHOULD MAKE AN ALBUM TOGETHER, WOULD BE PERFECT SUPERGROUP, NOT LIKE THAT WACK ASS "GROUPS" LIKE SLAUGHTERHOUSE.

    smart guy... always thought people like Tip and Jigga had the right idea when it came to beefs and who they thought was worth taking on. Getting involved in Jeezy's beef with somebody like Gucci is both petty and not worth the possible risks, and it's good to see someone who understands that. Getting away from beef doesn't mean you're pussy. It means you're smart.

  • Osar

    Much respect to T.I., staying out of that petty shit with Jeezy and that trash-ass bitch Gucci.

    while gucci tried to promote his wack ass mucic by beefing, Ti will be over there stackin his paper, knowing ucci wants a monster like ti to answer back. ti >>>>>>>>>>> Gucci

    • Cudder

      there's actually a rapper that follows your line of thinking. it's that fuckboi 50 Cent

    • mischief

      couldn't have wrote it any better to prove how much of an incorrectly spelled grammar, incompetent and a small minded idiot you are.

    • cj

      Money First is right. And how is someone going to just invite you to beef with them? You either have a situation- or not. Shit is stupid, done for fake ass cred. Cats like 50 years old acting like 15 and 16 year olds. When you're grown, you tend to care about your family and finances, not what other dudes think.

    • Money First

      You sound dumb as shit and that is the reason why ATL has remained a stronghold in the industry because they managed to stay away from the petty ass beefs that everybody else seemed to think was important! T.I. sounds like a grown ass man not a petty ass boy still trying to gangbang!!!

  • datnigga

    Grown man shit. Respect

  • reddywang

    T I sounds scard of Gucci to me..this the 2nd time Gucci done called this man out and counting!

    • Unanimous

      On top of that he is a grown man (with a family). Why would he allow him self to be pulled in some bs he is not even part of?

    • Anonymous

      with all the legal trouble and history that TI has, do you think he can really afford to take time out to adress someone like Gucci mane? That would be completley idiotic

  • Anonymous

    T.I. and Jeezy are in a different league to Gucci and DTE they have way more to loose and cant be acting crazy and doing shit like this any more and DTE better be careful cause Jeezy is their boss over at Atlantic

  • The Truth

    This explains all of his recent "ball" music. Man is getting his dough. Good choice though. Never be the one to clean up another's shit. TIP isn't a garbage man, he's a bread maker.

    Good standpoint TIP, let them catfight and you make that money.
