T.I. is speaking out about his confrontation with Apollo Nida at S2S Ladies’ Night last week.
The rapper hit up “The Big Tigger Show” on V-103 to debut a new song. While he was at the radio station, he explained what really led up to his run-in with Apollo on Thursday.
Supposedly, Apollo had pegged him as someone that had signed a plea deal stipulating that he must become a government informant to get a reduced prison sentence. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star threw out Tip’s name in an effort to explain that he hadn’t willingly become a snitch in his bank fraud case.
T.I. didn’t appreciate his name being pulled into the matter as an example, especially because he asserted that the information Apollo shared on Twitter was wrong. “I don’t have no slandering. If you’re going to tell the truth on me that’s fine,” T.I. told Big Tigger on Friday. “Anybody got something to say about me, make sure it’s the truth. If it ain’t the truth, just be ready to see me.”
Tip advised that his fans might want to look up the details of his plea agreement for themselves before blindly believing Apollo.
“The wonderful thing about the federal government and the United States is that all agreements, plea agreements are public record so you can pull Clifford Joseph Harris,” T.I. said. “It’s all out there, man, so you can pull my agreement up.”
In regard to claims that he agreed to become an informant, T.I. advised people to look for anything referring to Rule 35b. According to Cornell University, this pertains to reducing a sentence in exchange for substantial help.
“When you’re looking at the paper work and you’re looking for my agreement look for that. Just read it in great detail; take your time; print it out,” Tip suggested. “Take it to your thinking seat; read it up. I ain’t really got nothing to hide.”
Big Tigger also made it a point to ask Tip about his feature on the remix of Jhene Aiko’s “The Worst,” on which he allegedly aired out some of his marital woes with Tiny.
