T.I. Takes Home BET Award, Apologizes for Scuffle

tip-main6.jpgT.I. brought home the award for Best Hip-Hop Artist at last night’s BET Awards, and took the opportunity to apologize for his scuffle with Disturbing Tha Peace exec Chaka Zulu earlier this week. While accepting his award, the self proclaimed King of the South expressed regret over the situation. “They say it’s a fine line between brilliance and insanity,” he said, in an apparent reference to his troublesome alter ego, T.I.P. During the broadcast, cameras showed his onetime rival Ludacris smiling in the audience.

Luda himself won in the Best Collaboration category for his song “Runaway Love” with R&B queen Mary J. Blige. Gnarls Barkley, the duo helmed by former Goodie Mob member Cee-Lo, took home a statue for Best Group. Baby and Lil Wayne were rewarded by faithful fans, who selected them as the winner’s of the Viewer’s Choice Award for the single “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,” off their joint LP, Like Father Like Son.

    the show was too long. but good to see lil wayne finally winning some award. lol.

  • http://jarredr_904yahoo.com J-Reese

    Now it takes a real nigg to admit when they was in the wrong and apologize. I watch a lil of the awards and i cought that part. Much respect to T.I.

  • My Effin’ Opinion

    I thought Luda was smiling cuz he felt T.I.’s apology was disingenuous … at least that’s how I took it.

  • me

    mmmmmmijnijinninini

  • C

    1st you sluts!

  • http://xxlmag.com 31

    …first? T.I. is the only rapper I cam see in the situation where he fought when he did but also the only one that would apologize like he did. Hence the alter ego…? ‘One’

  • Town Bizz

    Did anyone see TI leave Tony Yayo hanging? Pure Comedy.

  • http://www.blaksocietymusic.com Damion

  • Anli

  • Galil ( STILL AFTERMATH) BISHOP LAMONT COMIN….

    Haha T.I. good guy hahah what he did 2 Tony Yayo was nice hahah fucking bitch g-uFLOP.
    Fuck Yayo aka Yoyo.

  • STUNNA

    Fiddy fuck up bad and try to cover it up by walking around, hahahahaaaa, the whole alter ego thing with T.I or Tip or what ever the hell it is, its old. Tyrice/Black Ty, Nelly with the album Sweat/Suit. all its is; is R&B and Hardcore Rap. Thats all to it. He does a track that sound R&B and claim its T.I then do a so-call hardcore rap and claim T.I.P. COME ONN ! then I guess all the rappers out here are just the same. What ever happen to social awareness? How come Nas was nominated? All we hear now is how much money they got and how much they spend, calling the listeners foul names and tell us to go buy their records.. ha and the same fool go and cop it. dumb asses. Talking about being pimps and hustlers. Hustler’n your own people and pimp’n there own women. Then there the “player” thing. The why HIV and AIDS is so damn high cus all we talk about is ” buy you a drink ” take you home and screw you then on with the next. I havent heard a good song since NWA’s fuck the police. Now that real music !

  • fireforreal

    50′s performance was terrible.This guy is caring less an less about hip hop so he should get the fuck out only the little girls will miss him and I’m sure the got posters and calenders of his popcorn ass.

  • Money Carlo
  • i’ll shit bag u

    tony yayo would fuck his little skinny ass up…gggg-unit!!!!!

  • jacquez
  • brebre

    I still have respect for 50 as a hustler, money-making machine. but yeah that performance was the worst I’ve seen. but then again, he could care less. he still gets all the paper. the game is never fair.

  • brebre

    for one second, I actually thought 50 did that on purpose or something. like he was about to swing at someone in the crowd. lol

  • http://almostaexpert.com missile 6

    T.I been doin the alter ego thing. Check the trap musik cd. If that’s the name either way its on his second cd he talking to TIP.

  • Q

  • Meso

    Missed the show, but props to TIP for venting his fustration to make an example. Too many disrespectful people running around, then everyone acts supprise they get popped or death threats. I still love me sum 50, they say money makes you lazy..

  • jon jon

    wasnt this supposed to be about t.i.
    why everyone start talkin bout 50

  • http://www.xxlmag.com EReal

    LOL @ Yall Speculatin.

    You think he did that on purpose? Man yall some dram queens. Dude was performing and the cat behind yayo was his boy, yayo just thought dude was tryina give him daps. TI and Buck are boys and Drama has done mad mixtapes with G-Unit. Yall make me laugh. Get the hate out ya minds.

    @Effin
    Luda was laughing because he knows the whole thing was fake and a publicity stunt. Thats how I took it.

  • kdizzle

    That’s some real stuff man. Admit when you’re wrong, be a man and move on. Mad respect gained brotha. Only a punk ass nigga would do what ti did and still try to act tough about it. T.I. did the right thing, the mark of a true Black Man. We as black people make mistakes (like everyone) but it’s learning from our mistakes that will make us a GREAT people. every person on this forum has something great to offer, tap into it!

  • Sha da hitman

    OKAY THE KING OF THE SOUTH TOOK HOME THE AWARD IT WAS WELL DESERVED HIM BEING THE ONLY ARTIST TO GO PLATINUM IN 06 AND HE DIDN’T LEAVE YAYO HANGING ON PURPOSE FOR ALL I KNOW IS THEY COOL AND AINT NEVER HAD WORDS SO STOP HATIN BITCHES OH AND THE SHOW WAS THE SHIT MOTHERFUCKERS

  • Walker V.W.

    I do think it takes a man to apologize but on the other hand, don’t say the stuff he said and turn around and apologize because it’s pretty clear he meant what he said. He just isn’t very real.

  • cannon

    im not 2 much of a 50 fan….but all u people sayin his performance was garbabe….his music was fukkin up so he aint perform…thas why he was lookin at da booth and shit…come on ppl….liiisstteen

  • STUNNA

    ti or tip suck. i wouldn’t even download his music if it was free. same shit just different toilet. I aint hate’n on him, its just all his song sound alike. even the way he flows. there no pattern to the beat just what ever rhyme next. and whos hot ? not wezzy the preditor look alike. name me one good song he has. and Fiddy, ha, still laughing at him. hes laugh’n to the bank but now with my money. you know why he really push is album back. its cus he has two single out and none of them are on the top ten. no one cares. ok beats, same as flow. where is the good Doc when you need him. I give credit to Luda. His album was soild. T.I’s got the crack head that he trap with his so call trap music buying his cd. ha….. all of them ,… ” album full of death threats yet no casulties ” what the fuck the world is coming to when you give awards to the crack deal/ so- call killers who terrorize the street. always beef’n. you dont see the country folk beef’n . they gett’n money. that why our sales are down. we get a little money and go stright to the bar or car lot while pick’n up the strippers along the way.

  • http://yahoo G-Money

  • Cuban Link

    Lil Wayne were rewarded by faithful fans, who selected them as the winner’s of the Viewer’s Choice Award for the single “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,” off their joint LP, Like Father Like Son.

    ^I stopped watching it aftr that, I did turn back later though when Public enemy was performing, which was iight

    I dont think 50 really messed up, i think he just wanted to say “Fuck U BET”.Knowing 50, that as prolly the case too.

  • 92FS

    LOL! I was just about to ask if anybody saw T.I. leave “Marvin” hangin’,if he did that on purpose or didn’t realise it that shit was still funny!

  • Mr. Whats beef

    LMAO this kills me, now u know u the shit and running things when these ppl suppose to be talking about t.i or tip when they just switched over to posting comments about 50, 50 was nowhere near in this article, but that goes to show you, this dude is always on everybody’s damn mind. lol

  • DirtDoggy

    Co-sign TI sounds the same on every track, I can’t tell the difference in any verse and don’t have a single song of his, just a boring style if you ask me, I have no idea how you mutherfuckers like his shit.

  • ten

  • Stax On Deck

    TI K.O.ed Ludacris manager. TIP is the man!

  • GAMA

    that’s whats up put phony gayo in his place that shit was funny curtis ain’t shit to hiphop thats why he did that cusing and stuff but it’s gayo’s falt why would a nigga like TIP shake gayo’s booty and coco butter smelling hands LOL!

  • Yung A

    C’mon T.I. fans yall actually fell for that bullshit disingenuous apology, yall actually think he’s the bigger man for doing what he did in front of millions? Plz If anything I say Luda is the bigger man.

    Ludacris showed major restraint during the situation with Zulu v Harris; instead of getting himself in an aimless quarrel (like TI did), he kept his cool and moved on. Lol It’s clearly evident that Luda could easily annihilate that True Impostor; even a blind man could foreshadow that ass-kickin’.

    TI is and will always be envious of Ludacris because his album took home the Grammy for Best Hip Hop Album last year. After overselling himself in 2006 with; album promos, feuds with Lil’ Flip, movie premieres, and mass air-time on the media, he still lost. Instead of taking his frustrations out on Luda, he goes and attacks Luda’s manager, WhataBitchmove!

    And Cassidy is the real schizo MC out there,
    “The Problem Vs The Hustla”

  • beef

    yeah i saw yayo slappin 5 with the air i was crackin up and i got dvr comedy son

    Tonya Gayo is wack and deserved to be left hanging. TIP is not going to dap up a clown like Gayo and if anyone thinks TIP gave a fucc about 50 not dappin him up then you are wrong…..the one thing that 50 doesnt want is beef with ANYBODY in the south. Especially not TIP.

  • FUCK TI FAKE ASS BITCH
