Grammy-winning rapper T.I. has informed his fans and the media alike that there are no issues brewing between him and Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy after publicly chastising his behavior at an Atlanta club a few days ago.
Tip cleared the air and admitted seeing Internet gossip surrounding the situation.
"I've been seeing a lot of embellishment going on online," Tip explained in an interview. "First of all, me and Puff, we go way, way back. That's like a brother to me. So whatever was said by me was said out of love. I made no attempt to belittle him or to check him. Puff's a grown man, he do what he want to do. I just felt it was necessary for me to separate for myself from the situation that was going on, just so people knew that I wasn't involved because of my personal circumstances. That's the kind of activity that I can't afford to engage in right now." ("Wild Atlanta")
The rapper also ensured that their close-knit relationship was not affected by the situation.
"We spoke that night, spoke the next day, spoke today. Me and Puff, we like brothers. We cool, we good. He one of the first people on his level to reach down to me when no one knew who T.I. was. He's always been very supportive and just an extreme example of how to get where I'm trying to be." ("Wild Atlanta")
Earlier today, Diddy publicly apologized for his weekend rant.
"I'm a child God and I should be better no matter what somone says to me. I'm sorry for the ignorant way I repesented myself and us.," he tweeted October 4th.
"To all my childen of God ... I have backslid and regressed. Forgive me for my ignorance. Pray for me pls. I know better and I am better."
"I have a responibility that I promise I will live up to. And I'm more dissapointed in myself than you know. I will humble myself and learn."
"bottom line is I'm sorry to all! Pls find it in your heart to accept my apology. I will do better and be Greater And a source of positivity!" (Diddy's Twitter)
After Puff blasted club patrons for not drinking Ciroc, Tip scolded him.
"What's going on in this muthaf-ka. I'm going to tell you like this, you will not f-k my hundred million up for nothing in this muthaf-ka. I don't give a f-k what's going on. I ain't for that fight s-t. I will get the f-k on out of this b--h and let ya'll have it. I've done enough time. Ain't nobody else in this muthaf-ka talking about fighting and have did time. I ain't trying to do it. Puff you got too much money for that sh-t n*cca. Let that n*gga drink what the f-k he wanna drink, f-k that s-t. They ain't getting money for drinking that sh-t, they paid to drink that sh-t. I love you and will go to war for you but come on man!" (Necole Bitchie)
