Ludacris has revealed a conversation he had with incarcerated rapper T.I. and shared the Grand Hustle leader's displeasure in learning about Lil Wayne and Lil Boosie's current legal woes.
Writing via Twitter, Luda updated his fans on the self-proclaimed "King of the South" and his reaction to learning about Weezy and Boosie preparing for one year jail sentences.
"Talking to TIP," he wrote Wednesday (October 28) evening. "He sais to tell Wayne and Boosie he Hates the situations y'all are in but he ridin wit the both of you. TIP also sais to all my Chicago peoples cut out all that d*mn nonsense!!! Sh*t has got to STOP!!!!!! I 2nd that!!!" (Ludacris' Twitter)
Luda spoke with SOHH earlier this month about teaming up with Tip for a charity to help Georgia flood victims.
"I just raised over $100,000 with T.I. for the flood victims here in Atlanta," Luda explained. "There's a particular part of Atlanta called Douglas County where most of the families were impacted. Overall there's like 6,500 families and 82 percent of them did not have flood insurance so they're just kind left out there. We live in this city, we make money from this city, we're giving money back and asking people for donations. We raised over $100,000 yesterday by calling a lot of our friends, like [Young] Jeezy, Chris Tucker, so many different people. If I were to get the money it would go towards that. I think there will be people suffering from the flood for quite some time. I've been talking to [T.I.] via email while he's been incarcerated. We are no stranger to helping and we both came up with the idea that we needed to do something about it. I was talking to him just generally speaking beforehand." (SOHH)
T.I.'s long-time girlfriend Tameka "Tiny" Cottle recently gave an update on Tip.
"I talk to him about a little of everything, just things going on," she said in an interview. "He hears things and we talk about it. He wants me to stay out the way, me being out of harm's way. I know it's a lot of crazy things going on so I try to stay in as much as possible because I don't have him here. So I come out only when it's necessary. I stay out the way...He's doing good. He's passing the time by working out and just doing things they do inside, you know," she stated. He's playing handball and things like that. I go see him every Sunday, sometimes on Mondays. We talk everyday. He gets emails, working out and doing things like that so he's busy in there. He has a full schedule." (All Hip Hop)
In a separate interview earlier this year, Tiny explained the role Tip's agent plays in visits.
"I see him every weekend," Tiny revealed in a July interview. "Like I go every weekend. Normally, if I go, I leave on Sunday and go visit him Sunday and Monday. I go two days. He's still saying [don't bring the kids.] I spoke about it just when I was there recently, well, actually somebody else was there, his agent. His agent was there asking about the kids and saying that he prefers them not to be there." (Atlanta's V-103)
Tip is currently scheduled to be released from prison in 2010.
