Boosie made his declaration in a new VLAD TV interview published on Monday (February 20). In the sit-down, he said that both his fans and his uncle told him he can’t do the planned album after a clip resurfaced of Tip admitting he “snitched” on his dead cousin to avoid jail time.
Less than a day later, T.I. issued his response to Instagram.
“Yeah so… Idk if it’s you or ya ‘OG Uncle’ that needs to see it… but I GOT MY PAPERWORK ready to show!!!” Tip began. “PULL UP!!! My number the same & my address the same my n-gga. To get on da net & speak on shit you’ve never spoke to me about is leaving me to believe you been hiding ya heart the whole time!!!! I’d NEVER speak “certain disrespect” on your name/reputation bout a ‘IF’ homie… da convict code say When in doubt…pull the paperwork out!!! & ‘IF’ you ain’t did that…Wow …”
He continued: “Idk what type of time you on but I say again… ‘IF’it was a question or confusion bout anything I said you could’ve called and asked …. so u can report back & tell ya ‘OG’ …or you could’ve pulled up & checked the blk & white like I’m offering now. Either way tho my n-gga … I ain’t bound to no n-gga’s opinion of me… cause what dey ‘THINK’ will NEVER overrule what I KNOW!!! So don’t wonder no mo’ homie…. answer the ‘IF’… PULL UP & report back to da rest of these n-ggaz who opinions matter so much to you. Cause I could Give a Fuck bout what no n-gga think bout me!!!
“‘The tail shall never wag the dog.’ Leadership Leads…. wit facts and stats… we don’t follow no fantasyland shit…remember that!!! & I ain’t bending my knees for nothing or fearing nothing but GOD!!! So cmon & see what you speaking bout so next time you can speak intelligently. @mamaheliveagain.2.0 I expected more from you. This shit ain’t solid. obviously I thought we WAS something we WASNT.”

The resurfaced clip of T.I. discussing his dead cousin comes from an August 2020 episode of his expediTIously podcast. In it, the Atlanta rapper recalled pinning a gun case on his late relative, Toot, in the early 2000s before his music career took off.
As T.I. explained, he and Toot were running a hustle in their native Atlanta involving stolen upscale clothes when they were pulled over by cops, who discovered a gun in Tip’s possession.
“We caught those gun cases, Toot died. My lawyer said, ‘Well, you know, I could make everything go away if it was Toot’s, it was Tremel’s,’” he said. “After he had passed, I had a talk with him. Toot said, ‘I’ll take all the charges you got! If you can walk away free and put it on me, goddamn right! ‘Cause I’ll be damned if they gon’ come and muthafucking extradite me from here!’”
Meanwhile, in other Boosie Badazz news, the Baton Rouge rapper paid tribute to 2Pac at the weekend while visiting the site of his murder in Las Vegas.
