Self-proclaimed "King of the South" T.I. has reportedly ended his rap beef with fellow Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo after recently inviting him on-stage for a performance.
The Southern-bred emcees met face to face at a Grand Hustle showcase for Tip.
T.I.P. performs at his Club Cruciall for one of his final shows before he does his time. He brings out Big Kuntry King and the big surprise was Shawty Lo being brought to the stage during "Big Shit Poppin" to publicly end the beef. Smiling and affirming each other's presence on-stage, Tip confirms the duo's pact at the end of his song. "Eh my n*gga," T.I. told Shawty. "Bankhead in this motherf*cker!" (World Star Hip Hop)
Both rappers were involved in a violent scuffle between each other's camps at last fall's Dirty Awards in Atlanta.
The annual ceremony erupted November 24 after both rapper's entourages began to allegedly taunt one another while on stage performing their sets. "He didn't come with the intention of starting any things or feeding any negativity, he had even told his crew, 'Look, I need y'all to respect my set'," Shawty's manager Johnnie Cabbell told SOHH. "We ain't come to the show to support any beef or support anything that's going on 'cause there really ain't no beef." (SOHH)
Shawty previously aimed at discrediting T.I. with his "T-Lie" campaign last May.
Shawty Lo! Live from Bowen Homes. He ask the Hood...."Is T.I. from Bankhead?" "We out in Bowen Homes man," Shawty said in a video. "You said you put Bankhead on the map...Have you seen him? T-Lie? You need to put where you from at on the map." (Rap Hustlin)
Tip later responded with his hard hitting "What Up, What's Happenin'" subliminal diss track.
"But we could get into commercial if ya need something chirp me/Hey what I care about who you asking saying they aint heard of me/I'm certified certainly them videos ain't hurting me/I still ride with the window rolled down all around the A town like it's finna go down/If it was every any questions n*ggas finna know now/Won't retire my throne or surrender no crown."
