2005: T.I. and Lil’ Flip got into a brawl in the streets of Houston, Texas nearby neighborhood of Cloverland on March 24, 2005.

Back in 2003 when Tip started to call himself the “King of The South,” Lil’ Flip rejected that claim. In 2004 when T.I. was in jail for violating the terms of his probation that stemmed from a 1998 conviction for violating a state controlled substances act and for giving false information. A beef began to brew over the next couple of months as the two Southern rappers traded shots at one another on their respected songs and mixtapes.

The beef came to a boil when Tip went on Houston radio station 97.9 and dissed Flip over the air plus stated that he’s coming to to Flip’s Cloverland neighborhood to shoot a video to exposed Flip as a fraud. T.I.’s crew and Lil’ Flip’s crew confronted each other at a detail shop near Cloverburger and a fight ensued. T.I. would later go the radio and say that he’s recorded the whole incident and will release it with his next mixtape.

Last year, Lil’ Flip spoke about ending his beef with Tip during an interview with Vlad TV, saying the feud ended when himself, T.I. and J. Prince sat down for a face-to-face conversation.

“What we said was at an undisclosed location and cooler heads prevailed. You know, at the end of the day, it was some petty shit. That’s what grown men do, sit down and figure this shit out,” said Flip.
