T.I. plays the cultural critic, sounds off on an ambien-fueled Roseanne, "The Story Of Adidon" and more.
In the wake of last night's flurry of breaking news stories, we knew it wouldn't be long before Tip came through to voice his opinions. TMZ caught up the rapper slash voice of the people to address some of the ongoing stories, including Roseanne's cancellation and something closer to his field, the Drake vs. Pusha T beef. With regards to the former, T.I. didn't seem to fee like Roseanne's "ambien-tweeting" excuse was sufficient.
"No more than crack is for a robbery," says Tip, shaking his head in utter disapproval. "If somebody can go commit a robbery and say 'man I was high on crack that night'." He shrugs. "You always gon' be held accountable for your actions." When asked about whether Roseanne's status as a comedian gives her any leeway, T.I. doesn't budge. "Not on that," he says. "Not in that regard."
The cameraman proceeds to show Tip the cover art of Pusha T's "The Story Of Adidon," asking if Push went too far. "Facts are facts," says Tip, before elaborating. "It's great for hip-hop. I think there's gonna be winners and losers on both sides. Seems like collateral damage." One can't help but think of poor 40, who recently found himself pulled into the beef, on the eve of national MS day no less.
