T.I. wants his privacy respected and he’s not shy to be vocal about that.
Over at World Star Hip Hop, footage of TIP, 39, hit the website on Sunday (June 14) and it sees one fan attempt to get a little too close to the rapper while he is at a stop light. “How you doing, man? Sup, bro?” the fan asks T.I. as he rolls up the window. “Black empowerment. Ethiopia, brother.” In an effort to remain somewhat friendly, the star raises his fist to show solidarity, but the fan continues to record the Atlanta star, so it’s no surprise that T.I. gets frustrated. “Hey look, bro. Don’t come up filming me, dawg. I’m driving. That sh*t rude,” he responds.
In related T.I. news, the rapper took over the streets of Atlanta this past weekend to protest over the death of Rayshard Brooks at the hands of white police officers. “I don’t give a damn what your opinion is of the person. I don’t give a damn what he did. The man didn’t deserve to die like that. And any policeman out here who stands behind that shit your ass in trouble too,” the star said in footage of his appearance. “We are going to have to organize. We’re going to have to demonstrate but we are going to have to do it with purpose. And when I say purpose, I mean direction. We’ve got to go where we need to go and do what we need to do in those areas.”
In case you haven’t heard, Brooks, a 27-year-old Black man, was shot and killed by a white Atlanta police office on Friday night. He was at a Wendys’s drive-through when the shooting occurred.
