Atlanta rapper Alley Boy has changed his story up after recently claiming "I Want In" was not directed at T.I. and Young Jeezy, now saying the record was in fact aimed at them.
Referring to the "King of the South" as Tip, Alley detailed his issues with the fellow Atlanta rapper and Jeezy.
"The whole record -- it was what it was. People know what time it is," Alley explained in an interview. "I said what I said and I meant it. It was some situations that happened between them two cats or whatever. I ain't into promoting those two dudes, they names and junk or whatever, but people know what it is. It was some situation that happened with the boy Tip or whatever, about a video that was put out -- I don't want to get too deep into that but anyway he called my big homie. One of the other CEOs, he called him and he threw somthing out there to him, a certain proposition about what happened and it made me look at dude like a coward. You have to stand up for yourself, can't nobody fight your battles. It really brushed us real sour. Instead of just taking it to the streets, which we were about to, it was like, 'OK, I'm gonna go this way.' And with the other dude or whatever, it was just a character thing. He's like, 'Oh Alley, you just did a song with him,' or whatever, whatever. ... In a way, you know, middle finger to both of them. That's my word, that's what it is." (Hot 107.9)
Last month, Alley said the "I Want In" record was not going at either artist.
"I did the 'We Want In' record,' a lot of folks say its a shot at a ni**a man, but I don't take shots man, when I take shots at a ni**a they gon' be bleedin,'" Alley Boy said in an interview. "But at the end of the day, I say respect the way I feel about sh*t. I feel like f**k a ni**a, it's my city, know what I'm saying? ... Ain't no bullsh*t in it, once I peep a ni**a character and I feel the ni**a aint real, I just go in on a ni**a, I dont give a f**k, its whatever, ni**as know what it is around the A." (All Hip Hop)
Speculation on Alley Boy's rhymes representing subliminal disses over specific references from the song followed its release in early January.
"All that street sh*t? It's over, game over/I'm the new king of the streets, no motivation, game over," Alley raps, easily able to be presumed as disses toward T.I.'s nickname and Jeezy's Thug Motivation album series. "F**k that snow sh*t/This hot sh*t/ In the A-town/This my sh*t." ("I Want In")
Following the craze, Alley Boy producer Mike "Trauma" D hit up SOHH with his take on the situation.
"Not really," Mike told SOHH when asked if he was suprised by the "I Want In" lyrics. "It's like the way I see it, and I can only speak for me, artists have been around for years doing their thing, eating well, doing numbers and it's like the record is saying, 'Let me in.' It's time. You know what I'm saying? It's time for something new. It's time for something fresh. It's no disrespect. I guess it's pretty much like the song says, 'I want in.' ... He actually has two records with Jeezy. All I can say, and like I said this is only my opinion, it could just be cats playing chess. [laughs] You know, it could be cats playing chess. Alley Boy would definitely be the person to speak to to find out for sure." (SOHH)
