T.i & n Themoneyteam getting down

A post shared by @angelmontana_ on

I’m pretty much fed up with T.I

I’m not going to call him a snitch, because the consigliere he had during his real life reenactment of a”Punk’d” episode starring machine guns, was the same guy that got Ben Roethlisberger off when he acted in a way that would cause the majority of people NOT to put their paychecks up and bet didn’t rape a co-ed in Georgia.

To quote “Coming To America’s” pre Sexual Chocolate performance review “That boy good!”

No, my annoyance with T.I doesn’t stem from his being an Olympic level felon, nor his idiotic Cali actions, that got him sent back a little while ago.

Nah, my annoyance with T.I is of the classic, tried and true, “He’s so talented and has so much to lose, why does he keep fucking up!?!” variety.

Everybody laughed when TIP ran up on a ATL Housewife husband or whatever, but that action a couple weeks ago could’ve turned bad and resulted in potential jail time.

Same with what happened with Floyd Mayweather at Fat Burger.

Mayweather is damn near THE Las Vegas economy, do you think if really went bad they (yes the ubiquitous, but well known they) were going to do Floyd in?

Or

A Jekyll and Hyde family man, entertainer whose career has seen better days / man who can’t help listen to his inner thug voice when it yells “BAAAAAAANNNNNKKKKHEEEAAAADDD!!!!!

Yes, Floyd was taking pictures with your wife, I get that, but do you reeeaaallly think he was trying to smash?

What is NO for mere common sense Alex?

And

Even if he was, THAT’S WHAT YOUR WEED CARRIERS ARE FOR.

T.I is a millionaire MANY times over. Now I’m sure he knows more about being a crime boss than me or even this guy

But

I thought the whole point of becoming rich and powerful was to have other people do your bidding?

And

I know you’re thinking “Did he just call Young Dro a Weed Carrier”

Well

His name is Young Dro and sadly, it’s been ALL downhill sonically since the CLASSIC “Day One” mixtape.

Back to TIP tho.

T.I is a supremely intelligent, uber talented and from what people can glean from television footage, an amazing father.

So

It’s going to be real f**ked up when he goes back to prison over some dumb sh*t.

And yall got the nerve to call Gucci Mane retarded…

 

 

Levity SN: Let me find out @FloydMayweather hit T.I with the classic Goldie line.

Morning Music: “Look What I Got”

“It’s moving slow? / What ya take a ni**a for?/ I’ma cock hammers and 44’s and nail ya ass to the floor”

 

 

There are a few things some Hip Hop fans ardently believe, that I steadfastly refuse have credence to them. For the sake time, I will only mention two at the moment.

“E-40 is the best rapper ever” (Yes I have met people who strongly adhere to that statement)

“I’m Serious” is better than “Trap Music”

The former I will delve into another time, the latter pertains to today’s “Moring Music”

I’ve had many people (mostly of southern origin) tell me “T.I’s debut is superior to its follow up “Trap Music” which propelled him to superstardom. After many earnest listing sessions I just don’t se….errr hear it, I and chalk up a portion of those sentiments to “Down Since Day One” syndrome.

While it could be said that NOTHING Hip Hop related is better than. “The Low End Theory”, people who say that “I’m Serious” is better than “Trap Music” sound like a wayward soul proclaiming “People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm” is superior to Tribe beyond certified, classic second release.

Anyway

“Trap Music” is a personal classic of mind and while some the reference on it are passé now, the earnestly, hunger, skill and sublime production of it, have stood the test of time.

Respect to The King this morning, who we should also, recognize as a living legend.
