In a resurfaced clip from an August 2020 episode of his expediTIously podcast, Tip recalled pinning a gun case on his late relative, Toot, with whom he ran a hustle involving stolen upscale clothes prior to his musical breakthrough.
After being pulled over by police, T.I. pinned a loaded firearm that cops had discovered in his car on his cousin, who passed away before the case went to court.
The Atlanta rapper’s comments ignited a firestorm conversation on whether or not he snitched, with Boosie saying he couldn’t in good conscience work with T.I. after learning this information.
“With the T.I. situation, if he did that – you a fucking rat too,” Boosie told VladTV. “I don’t spare no muthafuckin’ body. Because if you doing anything wrong, you doing anything criminal and you cooperate with law enforcement to get you out of trouble – that means you’re cooperating. That means you’re a rat.”
According to Mysonne, T.I. wasn’t in the wrong for his decision, regardless of “street rules.” He also said that if he were to ever pass away before his time, family members can pin whatever they need to on him.
“I wanna tell you this, if I pass away and you can put a crime on me so you don’t have to go to jail, put it one me,” The General said in an Instagram video. “Please. Please. Listen to me. If you can say that I did something that’s going to get you out of jail, all my friends and people who know me, please say I did.”
He added a caveat by saying those crimes do not include pedophilia or murdering an innocent person, in which case he doesn’t want those pinned on his soul.
“I think the logic that if somebody thinks they can tell on somebody who’s dead who doesn’t suffer any consequences, that’s when the street shit start coming in,” Mysonne continued. “That’s when the ignorant street shit start coming in. That’s when you doing some shit that don’t even make sense at some point.”
He added in the caption: “I do not adhere to Streets Rules. I deal with Codes of Manhood and Integrity! If yall street rules tell yall putting some guns on a dead person who was thxere is snitchin..F@ck Those Rules! Respectfully.”

Despite his stern criticism of T.I.’s snitching confession, Boosie Badazz also told DJ Vlad he believed the Grand Hustle honco was “just talking.” In any case, the album they were planning to release together is now off the table.
“No [that album is not coming out] because it ruined everything,” Boosie said. “I woke up with my muthafuckin phone, everything full. My real fans like, ‘Boosie you the last one left.’ They like, ‘You cannot put this album out.’ My uncle, OG n-gga call me … ‘N-gga that album ain’t coming out.’”
“I heard Drake and 21 album, it’s hard, but I don’t think it’s harder than our album,” he told Fat Joe on Instagram Live. “Man, it’s Rubberband Man and Badazz. This shit different. Wait ’til you hear it, bro.”
