Honesty Hour Moment: My mom and I were grief-stricken upon learning T.I. and Tiny are (possibly) splitting up. Heathcliff and Claire never once considered this option, so forgive us if we feel this was a rubberband slap to back of the neck after becoming so heavily invested in their Family Hustle series.
However, Tip didn’t allow his top-notch gift of gab abilities to go to total waste as he has been identified as the point man between Young Jeezy and Rick Ross’ on-wax reunion, according to TMZ.
“T.I. told us he had a heart-to-heart with Jeezy and got him to see he had taken his eye off the ball. He was focusing on bad blood rather than what was important — MAKING MONEY.
Jeezy saw the light and Rick ended up seeing things the same way.
Not only did they bury the hatchet, they agreed to work together on a new Ross track.”
Nothing new for Tip, since he’s proven to be a lifesaver before, like when he talked that suicidal guy off a ledge several years ago.
Needless to say, Rozay and T.I. 187’d the friction between them and went on to record a handful of songs together. And thankfully, the same could soon be said about Ross and Jeezy. If that wasn’t the most least productive beef between two household names in a minute then I don’t know what was.
It’s great that it never physically resulted in anything more than a yelling and shoving match at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards, but the subliminal shots in their musical output left a lot to be desired. Well, aside from Ross calling Young a “f*ckboy” four times in a row on 2010’s “Summer’s Mine.” That was funny.
Anywho, for fans of “War Ready” and whatever else the two brothers-in-coke-trafficking have planned in the near future, thank T.I.
He’s a man of his word.
