Beef Between T.I. and Ludacris Reportedly Turns Physical

tip-main5.jpgA dispute between Atlanta powerhouses, T.I. and Ludacris, which was previously said to be resolved, reportedly turned physical on Sunday afternoon (June 23) during a luncheon in L.A. held by Warner Music executive Kevin Liles. According to a report from MTV News, T.I. is said to have punched Luda’s manager, Chaka Zulu, in the face during the get together at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood, sparking a brief melee. Ludacris and Zulu arrived at the event three hours after it kicked off and the fight is said to have happened a short time later. It is unclear what exactly sparked the altercation, although tensions between the two camps are longstanding and well documented. The two A-Town representatives famously traded barbs back and forth on Young Buck’s “Stomp,” but were believed to have settled their differences and moved on.

    why is Luda’s name all in the headline and story? I coulda swore T.I. punched somebody not named Luda.

  • jburg

    let the dis records begin!! This should be good!!

  • str8 Native

    they just did a show together saturday night. rough.

  • BL0cK

    my nigga t.i. gets it in!!!

  • My Effin’ Opinion

    T.I.’s cool (n/h), but I think Luda is more lyrical .. pro’lly makes better songs too. It’s a close race but I think Luda got it.

    Now on beefin’ … I think T.I. ca’ fuck Luda up ..

    Acting, Imma give it T.I. as well

    That’s my Effin’ opinion …

    But then again, what the hell do I know ..

  • Ju Ju

    T.I.’s career is officially over. Ludacris kept quiet the first time now it’s serious.

  • dino

    t.i.p is my nigga.I”m from the a towm. niggas down here dont care for luda. he aint no street nigga. eveything he say is on some ho shit.

  • http://www.myspace.com/sirjantzversatile Sir Jantz

    It’s fucked up…these are two of the most powerful people in the ATL and they can’t get along. Whatever happened in the past…let that shit go!!!! I’m talking if these two cats could just settle their differences and record a song together…man it would be crazy!!! I’m talking epic…….JUst be easy!!

  • That Dude

    I think physically they are both small dudes. Musically Ludacris is a better lyricist by far, but T.I. makes those songs everybody likes to sing along to.

  • YyyIt’sAC

    I think T.I. really did smash on Zulu just because, he should’ve swung at Luda tho to see how tough that man (LUDA) really is kuz he seem really commercial now and gettin softer by the yearS…

  • 300

    fuck ti little ass. that niggas like 130 pounds and talkin like he be whoopin niggas. tryin to take off on chaka. if he was a g he wouldve took it to the parking lot and not tried to fire on chaka knowing everybody gonna break it up real quick. thats lame that shit dont impress me.

  • The Originator

    TIP don’t wont luda trust me!!!

  • jstyles

    That goes to show you TI is a bitch punching a damn girl..what kind of little nigga punches a bitch…faggot ass.go punch flip or luda…little hoe…..

  • DirtDoggy

    For real, what’s TI weigh, 85lb ? who gives a fuck, I think him and Parris Hilton could be a good match, I’ll take Parris on a 5-1 waiger by a backhand. He’s got that small man syndrome with a dirty ice grill on his face all day, I mean give me a break man, then again Ludas a little midget too so it could be interesting.

  • http://www.xxlmag.com EReal

    Theres so many different versions. Firstly LUDA wasnt INVOLVED. As soon as everyone started scuffling, he bounced.
    Second, T.I. didnt hit Chaka, he swung and missed and everyone started scuffling.
    Thirdly, all the beef is because T.I. has napoleon syndrome and is mad because DTP is shopping for a label home and Atlantic is rumored to be about to cut the check, so T.I. is being a bitch because he tinks he’s Clifford-Atlantic Records- Harris or some shit.
    Crystal Meth is a helluva drug, huh TIP??

    IMO, this is great. The begining of the end for the south. They cant take the lessons learned in NYC?? The two biggest southern artists beefing, lol, who does that remind you of?? Biters.

    1 hunned.

  • shadae

    First of all i love him to death but lil mane needs some anger mangement. he is to small to picking fights wit people

  • Walker V.W.

    Well it’s about time. I’m glad somebody finally did somethin’ all this talk about who’s gunna knock who out and nothin’ happens. It’s amazing to me how little follow-up there is in rap. Rappers really need to step up these days.

  • ak47

    hopefully, this will get luda back on some street shit. that last album was soft, he needs to get back to makin songs like “stick em up” and “catch up”. Luda could hang with T.I. in a battle, and I thought they both went pretty hard on “stomp”. But Luda gonna have to bring his A game.

    This could be exactly what hip-hop desperately needs, another classic battle. Lets hope….

  • jak

    if tip couldnt take on flip he cant take luda either

    I going to have to say where did Luda come in in this story his dude got punched and who knows what was said between T.I. and Chaka Zulu the midea is blowing up this shit nw if Luda whould have got stole on thin this story whold be a story but his dude got stole on so whay in the hell did they call this story “Beef between T.I. and Luda reportly turns physcial” It should have read “Beef between T.I. and Ludas manger reportly turnd physcial.” tMan reporters will say anything to get us to read something. Even if its missleading.

  • Vincity972

  • jprez

    I don’t think Luda can fuck wit TI. Look at what he did to Flip. It’s like Flip ain’t even alive or relevant anymore.

  • http://www.yahoo.com Streets Is Watchin

  • Tha Ace

    so what TI is still a scrawny lil puss
    how much fuckin damage could this lil clown actually do?? not very much people

  • Well..

    Naw this what happened. T.I. punched and choke the shit out of Chaka..Luda left saying that he didnt want any part of it! Ludacris didnt do nothing, because he’s not a fighter!

    To the people who’s saying T.I. cant fight because he’s skinny, get a clue.

  • Siranthony7

    T.I.P. keep it real, gotta handed to him, the brotha got a temper and won’t do a dis record!

  • Ali

    this beef will be a waste of time cuz neither could end tha other’s career….I like them both im curious 2 know y this happened…& yea it honestly looks like Luda had nuttin’ 2 do with this

  • FUCK TI FAKE ASS BITCH

    uh ti’s king cd was hot garbage and his new cd ti vs tip is hot garbage when are yall people going to open your ears and realize that ti is just an average rapper garbage at best he’s on the same level as gucci mane,young joc,young jeezy,and young dro hell ti can’t even fucking freestyle and never was the king of the south and as for ludacris ti gone make luda beat the shit out of him he done already dissed luda twice talking about he should of won the grammy instead of luda and at the summer jam in atlanta ti yelled to the crowed i didn’t move to atlanta when i was thirteen like i said he done already dissed luda twice i guess ti forgot what luda did to him on stomp and war with god luda destroyed ti and what did ti do not a damn thang so to make a long story short ti is just asking for luda to get on his ass

  • honestasicanb

    I wish he had of slap luda ass back to the nigga that could rap. This shit luda put out belong with nelly and all these other rappers that have fallen off. Nobodies feeling luda anymore. Chamillionaire has stolen his title as lame looking dude that says some funny shit on his songs and sells, so now what does he have. T.I. could probably win rapping and fighting weak as luda look and rap these days.

  • SHAWTY T

  • http://www.myspace.com/militantmafia King Choco

    Lets be for real people T.I didn’t respond to luda after stomp because he knows that would kill his career. If he didnt want beef he wouldnt put luda name in the verse. T.I knows what he is doing he been wanting to beef with Luda for a long time and now he think he got his rep up he can get at him. T.I is not a tough dude. He talks big on songs but dont handle anything in the Atl. Im tired of rappers saying the dude that makes good music is commercial. Just because someone dont want to shoot up in his music and being real because he is not a killer is not commercial. The rappers that claim they are thugs are not. These cats dont be in the street. They are shopping at the best of stores and eating the most expensive food. Black people stop believing everything people say on these rap songs. If T.I said he’s still in the hood go look at his house and see if he’s telling the truth. Dont get me wrong I like both artist but Luda would eat him alive in a battle because thats what he does. Thats why no one stepped to him yet. He only averages 3 million every cd he drops dont think he’s not moving units because he is not talking about killing.

    Thats words from a king

    dis is 4″king choco” rappers go in da game make it outta d slums so he’s keeping it real no 1 wants 2 b in abject poverty 4eva ,so he leaves d Atl dat dnt mean he’s a sell out.

  • crossmadison

    what???

  • R.I.P. stack bundles

    Ok people – lets put this in perspective:
    yes, both T.I. and Luda can spit, and
    yes, they’re both commercial with the rappin/actin thing, BUT….
    lyrically (and probably physically),
    LUDA WOULD BURY T.I., T.I.P., or Clifford – whatever u wanna call him. T.I. is hot – he does spit hot shit with nice beats – can’t deny that. But has T.I. not learned from “War with God”, which was really ONLY A WARNING SHOT at Tip?? And now he’s mad cuz Luda won the grammy – what the hell u beefin wit Luda for?? Yes, KING was probably the hottest album of the year, but Luda doesn’t control whether he wins or not. Go beef wit the mu’fuhs who voted 2 give it Luda!! But as for beefing wit Luda, well…..dig a hole and bury yaself, period. T.I. needs 2 get a grip for his career’s sake. We all admire his hustle 2 make it to the position he’s in, but just like he buried Flip – lets be logical about this- he can be buried by Luda, point blank. With all this beef in the industry, why do u think these artists have STAYED AWAY from beefing wit Luda??? Because lyrically, Luda is NICE. He will clown T.I. and make him look foolish 4 ever “restarting” the beef. Publicity stunt?? Maybe. Ego?? Probably. Career-damaging?? Possibly – that depends on Luda. Check T.I.’s last verse on the track on his new album, “Watch What You Say”. Chances are it’s aimed at Luda, although he doesn’t call him by name. Its a chess game, and its Luda’s move. We’ll just have 2 wait and see what happens. But PLEASE people, cut the shit about T.I. “fucking Luda up”, etc. because ANYBODY that knows ANYTHING about the industry knows that its probably quite the opposite.
