T.I. & Hot 97′s Peter Rosenberg Settle Twitter Dispute
The on-air personality recently tweeted a couple of opinions he had about T.I. recent activities and said Tip should be spending more time with his family
Following T.I.’s release from prison, Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg invited Tip to his radio show and expressed concern over him spending more time in the clubs than with his family, to which he took offense on his Twitter page.
Earlier this morning, Tip paid a visit to the Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg show to explain why he’s been spotted at the BET Hip Hop Awards and in the club with Diddy.
“That’s my town, and the awards are in my town. My return is upon us, so why would I not go out there? Why would I not do what I do? Of course I’ve got other obligations that supersede the awards, that supersede… Would it be better for me to just let somebody from somewhere else come?”
T.I. continues, “That means my presence is needed. In my absence, my city has been somewhat absent as well. So this is the return of me and my town. Prior to that, this is my job, this is what I do. Going to parties and doing that, that’s part of what I do. I picked up paper at all them parties. And I’ve been gone for a while, so you don’t want me to get my money?”
T.I. mentioned that if he lived in fear instead of going out on the town, he wouldn’t be the same man. “If I choose to be one who lives his life in fear of what could happen instead of preparing myself for what I know may happen, I’m not going to be the T.I. that everyone’s grown to love,”
And really T.I. is 100% correct. His character and will to never back down from life and live it to the fullest is what makes him T.I. and what makes many people respect him and his music.
Funny thing is that right before closing comments Peter Rosenburg invites T.I. to “go put something in the air.”
That comment reminds me of a starburst commercial, because if that wasn’t the biggest contradiction ever, I don’t know what else would be.
