T.I. celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day in a rather less than celebratory manner yesterday.
Recently, the Atlanta hip-hop heavyweight has made headlines due to his marital woes with wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle. However, Tip gravitated himself to the center of controversy yet again when he took shots at Black celebrities taking meetings with president-elect Donald Trump.
A few weeks prior to T.I.’s Instagram rant, pictures of Kanye West meeting with Trump hit the Internet. While no clear-cut answer has been provided as to why West and Trump shared a meeting in Trump Tower, T.I. used this as a focal point in his IG rants. He made it clear fans of West should remain skeptical behind these so-called meetings.
“There’s a strategic plan that people are trying to make you a part of, okay? So do not accept any invitation to have any meeting. You being there, being seen with them, taking pictures and smiling and being positive may seem positive to you, but there’s a hidden agenda, man,” T.I. explains in part one of this three-part IG video rant.
It is clear Tip respects West as a man and as an artist; however, he concludes Kanye’s invitation to meet with Trump as a ploy to attract a younger demographic. Steve Harvey was the next one on T.I.’s radar.
According to T.I., Steve Harvey is the main representative for all black women, which is why they would be prone to falling in line with Harvey meeting Trump in Trump Tower the same way Kanye previously did.
In true T.I. fashion, he finished the last clip simply asking West the blazing question: “Kanye, what the fuck you doing, man?”
