T.I. recently addressed Justin Bieber and the singer’s unearthed recordings, which feature the star as a teenager using the n-word and making racist remarks. 

“Every man is held accountable for his actions and his words spoken,” T.I. says in an interview with MTV. “However, I also think we should take into account the time in which this happened and the age of the person when it happened…I think that he definitely has to answer to it. He definitely has some explaining to do. But I think everybody that heard it has to allow him that opportunity. You can’t already convict somebody before they come forth with their rebuttal or their explanation. I think that is pivotal.”

Beyond Bieber, T.I. also addressed Azalea Banks, who he’s been feuding with because the rapper mocked T.I.’s wife’s appearance. 

In the clip, T.I. compares Azalea Banks to a person that is drowning. “It’s just like when you see a person out in the middle fo the ocean driving,” he says. “They have no real strategy, no real application of skill to get them through this situation…until they eventually drown.”  

On June 17, T.I. said the following about Banks

“U musty-mouthed-thot-bot-bad-body-syphilis-lipped-rectum-vomit-unimportant-ugggggly-monstrosity-of-a-maggot-ass BIIIIIIIITCCHHHH!!!!!! If u speak ill of my family again…..

Banks responded by saying T.I.’s wife has “meth mouth” and is a “busted bumpkin.”
