    KING OF THA MUTHAFUCKIN SOUTH!

    & for all of you that can’t understand why: he’s tha KING cause he said it & he meant that shit!

  • WES WES YALL

    T.I. Gotta win at least 3 to 4 of those awards…when rap sales at a all time low got to give him props for going platinum….even though the fourth quarter is gonna have a lot of platinum artist coming like nas,jay-z,the game,akon, eminem,snoop dogg maybe…THE DOCTORS ADVOCATE November 14

  • Million$MotivatedMailiciousMonarchMoneyMakin’Marc. O!

    If Wayne is in the Lyricist of The Year category TI can give it up. The South done found a way to big up themselves and got BET to cosign. Jay told niggas they got 2 months though…

  • Chris Villain

    yeah i see some reall hate towards or lack of love towards waye….But I Tell U one One Thing…Only 1 artists in the category with that if they win it iwll not anger me because its well deserved and thats Lupe Fiasco…that dude is nice as fuck…But other than that weezy better one somethin cuz he the Boss of The South…Boss of the Game Period….tha carter 2 better win that shti if it dont go to Food and Liquor

  • Chris Villain

    and hustler of the year shud have wayne in it as…well…he birng the mixtapes evrymonth…a album every year…and he workin on 3 albums this year alone….if dat ain hustlin then wat is

  • mm…canadian weed *cough*

    TI dont know where hip hop came from. he s got skills on the mic, but he raps about shit.

  • http://www.equestradio.com Equest Radio

    Does it really suprise people still that TI has taken over? You put TI against any artist of any kind, in any market in the world, and he will still be the King. Equest Radio, where you dicover your sound!

  • G-UniteyeGotchaBack

    I always liked T.I.,man. Much respect to him. And now that he’s on top alot of people are probably gonna start hatin’ on him, too. But I guess that just comes with the game, man.
    GOOD LUCK, Tip!

  • bmort

  • New York Nigga

    u kno that it being held in tha ATL everybody from da south is going to win. i dont think anybody from NY will even be there.

  • Uncle Murda

  • Three4

    ok, I like T.I.´s music but…lyricist of the year…HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!…you´re joking, right?

  • Three4

    And what´s up with Yung Joc…his album sucked big balls, only had like 4 good songs…

  • NY aint shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit…

    I wonder how many broke ass New York MC’s are going to talk shit at The Fox in ATL like they do in every magazine interview they seem to have done within the last year about ATL and The South in general…

    Broke ass NY MC on Peachtree Street:

    “Naw son, I got mad props for the South.” “I never said y’all ain’t shit, y’all niggas is that John Blaze shit!!!” “Yo B, no need to get up in my ass, I’ll never mention bringing back New York again!!!” “Awwww shit, “it’s goin down” on my ass…”

  • Adrenaline

    t.i’s music awful. look at his album whats good about that. t.i ain’t no king of da south Ludacris fuckn is…

  • G`s UP

    love to TI for doin it big!
    he`s takin over the game!
    KING

  • jr

    i dont really care as long as he dont perform. Hes one of the worst performers i ever seen. I cant wait until he puts out a live ablum or something like that so i can sell it as a sleeping pill substitute and mke mad loot.
