N.O.R.E.’s praise came during the latest episode of his Drink Champs podcast, which featured special guest Wiz Khalifa.
The comments come after Boosie and Tip planned to put out a joint project together, but ultimately scrapped it after Boosie scolded the Atlanta rapper on social media for admitting that he pinned a gun case on his dead relative before his career took off in the early ’00s.
The pair eventually reconciled earlier in April after running into each other at the airport.
“T.I. and Lil Boosie, I know that you could have went to war, y’all could have just done a whole bunch of tremendous crazy shit, but the fact that y’all show that two Black men can get together and talk it out, I really commend that, I really respect that,” N.O.R.E. said. “I really salute that because we need to keep pushing that. That it’s not always drama.”
He continued: “A disagreement doesn’t always lead to y’all fighting and shooting. I love the fact that you got together. So T.I. and Boosie, wherever you are at. I wanna salute. I’m so tired of violence.”
The pair’s feud began in February when Boosie Badazz labeled T.I. a “rat” due to his aforementioned confession, saying it “ruined everything” between them.
The Grand Hustle general later replied that he had “embellished” the story about his late relative, which contained “humor” and “sarcasm” that escaped Boosie. He also shared a photo of court documents that proved he didn’t snitch on any body.
The King rapper was then seen waving around said documents at a “paperwork party” he hosted in his native Atlanta, and scolded Boosie for ignoring his invite to “pull up.”
“I just don’t like for a n-gga to God damn get fly then get shy, you hear me?” T.I. said at the gathering. “My n-gga, I’m right here in the center, so come on if you got something to say about me, if you think it is what it ain’t. There’s one way to clear it up: pull on up, let me show you what you looking for.”
He continued: “And then after you see what you need to see, then it’s on you now. We gon’ straighten that shit up ’cause you done got too far in the jaw, you got too much dip on your chip.”
In an interview with TMZ in March, T.I. downplayed the notion that he and Boosie had “beef” and implied the “Wipe Me Down” rapper had “come to terms” with the fact that he “misspoke.”
T.I. and Boosie Badazz are surprisingly not the first rappers to have made amends while navigating an airport. Last year, Freddie Gibbs revealed that he and Jeezy squashed their long-running beef after bumping into each other at an airport.
