Grand Hustle rapper T.I. has stepped up to provide some clarity into an unexpected rant against gossip website TMZ last week after it intially reported Lil Wayne was on his deathbed.
Tip blamed the media outlet for going the distance and making Wayne’s situation more dire than it actually was.
“I was with him last night,” T.I. tells “omg! Insider’s” Nina Parker. “He is doing fine. We were actually watching the game and he’s hoping the Lakers go to the finals. Listen man, I’m all about doing what’s right, and I don’t have any personal beefs or conflicts with anyone. I’m just about doing what’s right and when you put things out of such a graphic nature that are inaccurate, I think you then put children, mothers, families through unnecessary grief.” (OMG Yahoo)
The “King of the South” also said due to the fact families were involved, he could not contain himself.
“Listen man, I’m all about doing what’s right, and I don’t have any personal beefs or conflicts with anyone,” T.I. told Parker. “I’m just about doing what’s right and when you put things out of such a graphic nature that are inaccurate, I think you then put children, mothers, families through unnecessary grief.

At last weekend’s South By Southwest music festival, T.I. took center stage and blasted TMZ.
“And I want to say this, man,” Tip told a screaming crowd at SXSW. “One love to my n*gga Lil Wayne. I spoke with my n*gga, he aight, man. TMZ’s some real f*ck n*ggas for putting that motherf*cking bullsh*t out, yo! He aight. Keep him in your prayers, he’s going to be back turning up on them suckers in a minute. Let’s ride!” (Midwest Leak)
