Grammy-winning rapper T.I. has broken his silence on getting name-dropped in Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy‘s beef, however, he has decided to pull himself away from getting involved in the feud.
Asked about his take on the situation, the “King of the South” stressed an emphasis on solely making his bank account bigger.
“I got my mind set on a big sack with a lot of money in it,” T.I. said. “Anything not of that understanding and of that nature, I don’t really see it. So I don’t really know what you’re asking me about it. [He’s got a situation with him and Jeezy?] And I think you just ended it right there. You said it all. You know what I’m saying, I don’t know. A lot of times things happen in life and we never know why. The focus is what counts, man. I’m focused on that sack, champ. I’m focused on that sack. I’m trying to get myself right up there where Jay[-Z] and them are at.” (Hot 107.9)
R&B singer Keyshia Cole has also addressed the situation and refused to get involved.
“That ain’t my business!! he’s lying! its all G tho. RT @iMBRiTTANYDUh: Gucci Mane wrong for putting @KeyshiaCole buisness out there.,” Cole tweeted Sunday (October 14).
“Putting all ya trust in some of these “Hood Rappers”.. How u gone be a G, and u spreading lies, To sell mix tapes! Where ya talent at??”
“Basically. Dude ain’t have 2 lie tho! could’ve kept me out of it. RT @TokioRose: @KeyshiaCole Mediocrity always attacks excellence.”
“I will continue 2 build what I’m working so hard accomplish! I’m married with a child, and don’t have no place in that none sense!” (Keyshia Cole’s Twitter)
Over the weekend, Gucci got on his Twitter page to publicly challenge Tip and Jeezy to meet him face-to-face.
“I attended Jeezy and Tip party dead fresh I wonder if they got the nuts to come to mine at DOA. #TRAPGOD 10/17/12 http://lockerz.com/s/252782464″ (Gucci Mane’s Twitter)
On his new “Truth” track, the Atlanta rapper claims Cole had sex with Diddy.
“I ain’t playing wit ya, I ain’t trying to dance wit ya/I ain’t using hands, let them rubberbands get ya/It take money to go to war and we can go to war n*gga /I ain’t no real rapper, I’m a f*cking grave digger /I’m a old school fool, don’t make me show my age n*gga /Grab a Louisville and turn it to a batting cage n*gga /I did a song with Keyshia Cole and I know you still miss her /But Puff was f*cking her while you was falling in love wit her /Call you to do a song, wouldn’t even smoke no bud wit ya /I was screaming so icy and was a neighborhood n*gga /This AR is my back up cause I don’t need nan n*gga /Must didn’t hear when Flocka said “Let them guns blam n*gga!” (“Truth”)
