T.I. Refuses To Take 50 Cent’s Bait, Says G-Unit Rapper’s Comments Not Like Him

50 Cent struck first, but don’t expect T.I. to strike back at all. For now, at least.

The Atlanta rapper is taking the high road. On a new G-Unit record previewed for media members in New York last week, Fif questioned how Tip received little jail time for the 2007 gun charges he was hit with.

“Nowadays this rap shit ain’t adding up/How niggas get caught with 10 machine guns, only get 12 months?”

T.I., however, already embroiled in a feud with Shawty Lo refused to take the bait.

When question about 50’s attack by SOHH, Tip declined to comment. The Grand Hustle CEO said it wasn’t like the G-Unit head to strike out in song without saying something in person first.

Tip was arrested in October of 2007 hours before the BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta. The rapper was charged with felony gun possession and faced up to 10 years in prison. In March of this year, though, a U.S. District Judge signed off on a plead deal that would see T.I. face a year in prison.

T.I. has a history of felony charges and many believed his latest run in with the law would have resulted in a hefty sentence. But when he struck a deal that netted him a relatively easier sentence many were surprised. Comments were made about the power of his legal team and also questions arose whether or not the rapper cooperated with authorities.

The rapper hasn’t spoken at length regarding the situation but has since admitted his mistake. “I was running with guns and not God,” he explained to MTV News.

The rapper was also ordered to perform 1,500 hours of community service in addition to his upcoming jail time. The community service is to consist of speaking to youth groups across the country. Ten days ago, Tip, along with The Wire actor Anwon Glover and former mayor Marion Barry, spoke at a Washington D.C. area Boys & Girls Club.—Nino “Dubs” Deluca

    Good for T.I. for those talking about him snitching–grown up. If he did-who gives a damn. There is so much more going on in that man’s life and the world. Anyone with common sense and maturity would brush that ish off. Get your ish straight in ’08

  • http://www.xxlmag.com/?p=22281 T.Z

    All rapper know now that 50 is gone to do whatever to boost sells for himself because 50 is fallin off. Let him die slow tip.

    HOW? TI is not ja rule. 50 said shit about lil wayne 2. That nigga just sold a mil in one week. 50 can only hurt you if you respond.

  • The_Truth

    I’ve been critical of TI, but I respect him for keeping his mouth shut. . .50′s tryna promote an album indirectly.

    Keep it movin, TIP.

  • http://internationalzonecoaster.blogspot.com Max-Jerome

    There is absolutely no way TI is stupid enough to go “head to head” with 50 right now.

    Not because of 50′s Popularity but more about how much media attention this dude receives..

    First of all, he would have to explain how he got 12 Whole Months (with Community Service???)For a Fucking Cache of Machine Guns. You can best believe there wont be any back and forth.

    Just like on Punked: “Officer I Dont Know How That Bullet Got There”.

    If this cat reacted like that to one Bullet, you can imagine how sang about them Machines Guns.

    Niggas Is Funny In The Rap Game.

    These Are Millionares, and we all over here Starving!!!!!!

    • Marco317

      Co fucking sign! these lil nigga was scared shitless on punk and when da cameras came out lil nigga try act tough cause he know he got exposed!!!

  • yessir

    I respect tip more for that, he’s lyrically much more talented than 50 anyway, and if u think otherwise…wooow, some people don’t deserve a response, but I can dig 50′s hustle currently OUTSIDE of the music, but him startin beef every week is gettin old, he needs to work on gettin g-unit back to the old days…makin that good music

    but tip is that dude, and i can’t be mad that he wanna clean his life up, y dudes hate when kats wanna go positive, i like the fact that he’s grown out of that redundant bs u hear on the radio daily, and personally this whole snitchin convo is gettin out of hand…everybody got the whole concept of the idea backwards…silly rabbits

  • iLL

    That shows you how the South addresses the foolishness. Cats down here aint for all the yappin back and forth. He knows 50 m.o. As long as 50 been doing the same thing over and over again; you would think all of you would know the routine. Wayne didnt fall for the fuckery either, notice a routine. Im not a fan of either one of these guys or no other man. The shit just is all a marketing ploys. Its old and tired.

  • og bobby j

    for real….TI might have a chance to murk 50 on wax…but he dont want it with fif…not at all.

    If he wanna respond…he’ll need to explain his situation….and he dont wanna do that. Plus…50 a beast in the game…and paper much longer then TI’s……

    Bottom line ….This could be just as good for TI as it would be for 50 (publicity wise), but TI dont want it (can even handle Laffy Taffy ass niggas)

  • KING WAY$

    i’m not saying T.I is a snitch or not but why put money in another mans pocket meaning 50 wants to beef. He gets paid off of that shit. But isn’t there still rumors saying 50 snitched and on some of his song’s he put big time dudes names out there. Get off of 50′s dick

  • Jack

    TI will most likely say something later just can’t speak on the situation yet since he’s going through it. when he gets out it will be brought up again.

  • A yo

    I saw t.i. on the tv show PUNKED and all, do people know that the artiste or whomever being punked, has to sign a release.
    Meaning the nigga already know how he would’ve looked to the public, does that still make him a punk?:-/
    To the kids; people act different on probation gotta be more careful, Kanye did the gangsta-est shit on their true but he aint never really been in trouble b4 like that nigga didnt think about the consequences niggas on probation have 2.

  • escobar9300

    Man TI isnt scared, TI is smart as hell. Wayne did the exact same thing, Everybody knows what 50′s bitch ass is all about. He starts shit with WHOEVER is making bread, or has any form of a glaring weakness at that moment (TI tired up w/ the law) and attacks it. Wayne and TIP are some smart motherfuckers not letting this G Unit snitch get to them

  • COGA CUB

    WELL WAT THAT MAN DO IS HIS BUSINESS I DOUBT THAT TI SNITCH WHO COULD HE HAVE SNITCH ON AND PLUS THERE WAS NO MONEY SEEN AT THE TIME OF THE CRIME SO THEY GOT HIM UNDER SUSPISION U DONT GET TEN YEARS ON SUSPISSION IN GA LAST TIME I CHECKED PLUS 50 IS HELL BENT ON ANY RAPPER FROM THE SOUTH NOW NEXT HE GONE START WITH LUDA

  • Prbadboy23

  • rich

    t.i ant scared homie , he’s just smart why beef if theres no talk. shit now a days you cant just battle cause battle gets pursonal and rapers in this era cant handle that they want to start fights its not about lyrics and perfection its about whos got more. t.i is a perfectionest small situations like this just roll off his shoulders.

  • datruth

    on albums T I sure be talkin tough but the truth comes out doesnt it!SNITCH!130 lb wet with boots on dont want it wid 50 ….ti a marshmellow as nigga for allowing himself to get shitted on and not respond!

  • 239allday

    TIP>>>>>>Girl Unit

    Even so, I was dissapointed that T.I. didn’t immediately fire back at them fools. But that is exactly what fifty wants. Lloyd banks needs to get out of that crew while he still can. He the only one with skills.

  • yung storm

    t.i. don’t need to go at 50. because niggas done got hip to his game. 50 talks about other people so his name can stay in their mouths and then they lose focus on what they need to do. t.i. needs to just focus on his own album and maintaining his innocence. who really cares what 50 cent has to say these days. i mean come on now. you got like 400 mill. why you care about why t.i. only got 12 months? why didn’t 50 attack r kelly for getting off after everyone knows it was clearly him in the sex tape with those young girls.

  • TxTitan

    T.I.P. knows 50 wants a response….funny, the new G-Unit album is bout to drop. 50 is lame

  • SROW

    50 MAKE EVERYONE TURN TO FAMILY MODE………. T.I EVERYBODY LISTENING WHAT’S YOUR MOVE YOU LOOKING REAL BAD RIGHT NOW

  • Gorrilah

    this is a battle of the snitch-heads both this matherf***ckers are snithes period but i 50 is the biggest snitch of the all.he wants beef with ti so he can push sales like he did with ja.50 u no longer revelant to hip-hop now weeezy outselled your stupid album called snith or die tying faggot is his first week.

  • http://xxlmag.com Ron Mexico

    tip is gonna sidestep this, but it still smells a little snitchy in here.

  • NOTORIOUS AGC

    T.i. aint responding cause he dont want to help his fuckin enemy by givin him record sales to see if 50 responds in his album, be smart niggaz, its common sense…T.i. need to make some FIRE in his next cd though kause lately…he been makin some chick friendly music…were fiendin for a “motivation”-”U DONT KNOW ME”-”bezzle”-”be easy”-”i cant quit” type shit maynnnnnn lol.

  • ThaRealBoiWonder

    T.I.P is taking this situation wisely because it could hurt him more than it will help him. But let’s say this happened about 2 years ago, T.I.P woulda murdered 50 on a track. 50 is so funny, kinda like he’s the Triple H of this rap shit…

    What is the zeitgeist???

    Google and find out?

  • VA

    50 cent is fuckin garbage he makes me mad his whole carrer is a big publicity stunt he had 1 good album besides that they were garbage he tries 2 start drama every time its time 4 an album 2 come out nobody should take him serious

  • 4Play

    honestly man, i gt respect for my boy tip, why shud he giv a fuck bowt wat 50 gotta say anyhow? 50 and Gay Unit get their pride at the end of day by callin out rappers of a much higher stature, then they go on the paint eachothers toe nails in the foo-foo ass G Unit mansion.
    plus for all you fuckas who don’t know what you tawkin bowt, go listen to 50′s lyrics, nigga much more of a snitch than tip will EVA be.

  • Q! tha Great!

    #1:Fifty desperate to save a sinking ship: Kanye whipped his ass in sales last year, Yayo is hot garbage, Banks got skills but he’s a puppet, he got Buck shaking the spot, Mobb Deep is trash, Olivia is MIA, Spider Loc, Hot Rod & 40 Glocc are under-developed artists. So what else can he do? So, he trying to mess with the Game’s release date, He talk shit about Kanye, Wayne, Game, Buck, TI or whoever he can to get someone to focus on him and G-Unit. The Game mashed on him and survived, Fat Joe & the LOX mashed on him and survived, Kanye mashed on him, Wayne ignored him and mashed on him! this ni**a ain’t nothing but an instigator playing for attention! The only person fifty mashed on was Ja Rule and he only won that battle because he had help from Eminem, D-12, Obie Trice, Dr. Dre, The Game, G-Unit & Busta Rhymes! so don’t ever play into this dude’s BullSh*t!

    #2 TI is smart by not feeding into the trap. He already got alot to deal with. He need to make this record to be his best because the only people that are selling numbers are creative people (kanye, wayne)or one hit wonders (soulja boy) with stupid dances. That era of BullSh*t gangstas is over. He can’t come out all hard on the next record or his credibility is shot! Come with the grown man sh*t!

    #3: almost everyone of these so called gangsta mutha-f*ckas has been acused of snitching or making deals: Snoop, 50 Cent, DMX, Ja Rule, Irv Gotti, Diddy, TI…etc they all bitch up a little. the only real niggas I seen go down were 2Pac, C-Murder, Shyne, Mystikal, Pimp C and a few others. None of these rich-ass so-called gangstas wanna go to the pen!
