T.I. Responds To Being Put In 50 Cent’s Diss Cartoon
Rapper T.I. has refused to participate in any virtual hip-hop beef with rapper 50 Cent or any rapper for that matter as he states, “I’m a real dude – a stand up guy with integrity, respect, morals, standards, [and] principles, and anything outside of that I ain’t got nothing to do with.”
In an interview with XXL Mag, rapper T.I. responds to a cartoon diss released by 50 Cent entitled “Officer Ricky: Welcome To Death Row Right Now Na Na Na” which is a 4th episode of 50 Cent’s series of cartoon animations called “Saturday Cartoons Presents” aimed at dissing hip-hop rival Rick Ross. In episode four, 50 Cent pokes fun at T.I. by having Officer Ricky [Rick Ross] arresting T.I. referencing back to T.I.’s 2007 weapon charges which the rapper is preparing to start a one year sentence this month on the charges.
“I havenâ€™t seen it but, we all know dude,” T.I. says of the cartoon series. “We all know his intentions, we all know his motives. Weâ€™ve seen this too many times before. You know, I play chess, not checkers, you dig? I ainâ€™t even trippinâ€™ off of that. At the end of the day, Iâ€™m more worried or concerned about what a man says to me or what a man does to me, not what he says or does in the eyes of the public,” added T.I.
Rapper 50 Cent was also supposedly taking aim at T.I. in a previous release in the song titled “You So Tough” off of G-Unit’s last album “Terminate On Sight”. The lyrics that appeared the song are: “How do you explain how homey breeeze /They said keep ya mouth shut or you eatinâ€™ the cheese” which allegedly refers to the rumor that T.I. snitched to get a shorter sentence.
More details of T.I.’s response may come available as XXL releases the full interview come Monday, March 2, 2009.
