Funkmaster Flex made some recent claims about Tupac Shakur that got a lot of people talking. The Hot 97 DJ, recently took to social media and declared that ‘Pac actually shot himself in the leg instead of being ambushed that fateful night at Quad City studios on November 30, 1994. “You Pac fans always talking that talk,” Flex said during an Instagram Live session “Cheddar Bob came in there, popped himself in the leg. Popped himself first. That’s what happened.”

One person who took exception to Flex’s depiction was T.I., who took to Instagram himself to fight back against the claims in a screenshot of some of the DJ’s subsequent tweets. “Yo @funkflex Respectfully Bruh… on G-Code…. regardless of what YOU THINK the validity of your statement is, I was taught never to speak down on a dead man,” Tip wrote. “Considering they ain’t here to speak up for themselves. When he was alive, you was on da air then….that was the time to address this. NOT HERE,NOT NOW,NOT LIKE THIS!!! And I’d say the same to a n***a from L.A. speaking on BIG.”

It’s not very surprising that T.I. would rush to ‘Pacs defense in this manner. The Atlanta rapper is a known fan, and even dressed up in one of the legendary MC’s most iconic looks at this year’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction.
