TI Reveals His Black Lives Matter Message To Lil Wayne On Social Media Was Done Out Of Love, Calls Him A Legend & One Of The Greatest

T.I. recently stopped by Shade 45’s “Sway In The Morning” radio show to chop it up with Sway Calloway, Heather B and Tracy G for an interview, which you can check out below.

Around the 19:00 mark of the conversation, Tip revealed why he was offended by Lil Wayne‘s comments on the Black Lives Matter movement and why he said what he said on Instagram.

The Atlanta rapper explained it was one of the most difficult things he has had to do in his life and he did it all “out of love”, because he didn’t want to see anyone else bash Tunechi for his comments but he felt that him and Tune have the type of relationship that would let him say what he did.

However, T.I. did say he has “got a lot of love and respect” for Wayne, called him a “legend” and “one of the greatest”, as well mentioned he still considers Weezy one of his “partners” in music!

Young Jeezy recently sat down with Hot 97’s Nessa for a one on one interview and to promote his new album, Trap Or Die 3, which you can check out in a clip after the jump below.

At the 5:15 mark of their conversation, Jeezy was asked if he feels he has to defend or does he understand what his “Bout That” collaborator Lil Wayne had to say about the Black Lives Matter movement in a recent interview!

“Everybody has their opinion, but at the same time, people just might not understand. I’m not definitely coming to his defense because he is an adult, he understands what he’s doing. People have to understand he’s been a superstar so long, since he was a child, I grew up on him. He might not be connected on that level. It is difficult because he’s been rich for a long time. He’s been living on his own island for a long time. Maybe it’s something he just don’t see.”
