Grammy-winning rapper T.I. won’t let fans forget about his late Hustle Gang protégé. The King of the South has reflected on the life of late hip-hop artist Doe B.

Tip hopped on Instagram Wednesday (June 13) to speak on B’s legacy and how much of an impact he had on the culture.

Happy Gday Lil bro. Still ain’t another Young’n waving that Trap Muzik Flag like you kid!!! You were truly a blessing to US!!! Happy I got the opportunity to work with you and witness your greatness first hand!!! Sometimes It’s not until we lose what we have that we actually take specific notice of how special it is. And since you’ve been gone I’ve been watching a lotta “goofy shit”(as me you and Doc used to say)go on and can’t help but wonder… “What would Doe say bout this shit???” Seen a few cats you kicked it around blow up off replicating your Drip 💧….. But u know… The Trap rolls on regardless who’s doing the serving…. But the work most definitely ain’t the same!!! I still listen to #BabyJesus and #DefinitionofaTrapper when I miss u & I wanna feel your energy. I wish I had more of a say in how your music was released,but the estate is in the hands of lawyers and strangers that have no interest in keeping your legacy alive (in my opinion). But just know… as far as I’m concerned… You ARE STILL THE KING OF ALABAMA & just as I told Jay(Z) face to face about you… YOU WERE OUR BIGGIE SMALLZ & you can never be replaced nor forgotten!!! The body may fade,a life may be taken,but the spirit of Legends are immortal!!!! So…Happy Birthday to my lil Brother, Doe-B THE LEGEND!!!! King Of Alabama!!!! #LongLiveDoeB👑

T.I. previously spoke to SOHH and admitted Doe’s late 2013 death shook up his entire Hustle Gang crew.

“For real man, that put us on ice,” Tip told SOHH writer Nikita Rathod. “We had to step back to re-evaluate. I mean don’t get me wrong we still have extremely heavy hitters with Trae Da Truth, Travis Scott, Iggy Azalea, people like myself, Shad Da God, we still have a plethora of talents but that hit us.” (SOHH)
