Shawty Lo Just Will NOT Quit…

25 11 2008


Peeped this on XXL.  Check it out…Shawty Lo need to chill.


Shawty Lo’s innocent. As previously reported, members of T.I. and Lo’s crews got into an altercation during Radio One’s Fourth Annual Dirty Awards in Atlanta last night (11/25).

Early reports say the fight started when Lo taunted Grand Hustle with his own version of Yung L.A.’s “Ain’t I.” But to let the Bankhead rapper tell it, he didn’t instigate anything.

“I didn’t go and start nothing. If they rewind the cameras, they’ll see how it started,” Lo told MTV. “I’m a man. I respect every man as a man. If a man disrespects me, what am I supposed to do? T.I. needs to contain his people. We’re not standing down. I performed my music; 107.9 [one of the show’s organizers] called me to perform. I didn’t come to start no beef with him. I gave Tip a shout out at the BET [Hip-Hop] Awards.”

Lo actually claims Tips’ camp started the fight. He tells MTV Alfamega and other Grand Hustle artists approached the stage and started ice grilling during his performance.

“Basically, I didn’t start saying anything about Tip,” Lo explained. “I was performing my music. During ‘Foolish,’ all of them was coming in front of the stage doing their mugging. After ‘Dunn, Dunn,’ I performed the dis record ‘Don’t I.’ That’s what made me perform the diss record. I ain’t gonna lie; they was disrespecting me. I wasn’t gonna let them disrespect me.”

Lo fittingly bumped into T.I. when his D4L crew was taken backstage minutes after the melee. The two briefly spoke in a private meeting, in which Tip apparently suggested they end their feud once and for all.

“He told me the beef was over with,” Lo told MTV. “I said, ‘If the beef was let go, me and you have to publicize it. We have to do it together.’ He agreed to do that, and we shook hands in the back room.”

Lo claims Tip then accepted an award on stage before taunting, “if somebody’s got a problem with me, do something better than me.” He then began performing “Ain’t I” with Yung L.A., sparking another altercation between the two crews. Tip wasn’t involved in any of the fights. Lo says he’s still willing to squash the beef, isn’t sure T.I.’s on the same page.

“[Me and Tip’s conversation] ended on a positive note with the conversation,” Lo said. “I don’t know where he is [with the beef]. I guess he just be talking. One thing about it, Shawty Lo ain’t no punk. T.I. is just a rapper. He knows how to read a book good. Where I live is for real. I ain’t got nothing against homes. He’s got family, I got family. I’m not trying to kill him, he’s not trying to kill me. I got fans that love me. He’s not not gonna run all over me. I ain’t Lil’ Flip.”

Grand Hustle and Shawty Lo Finally Get It Poppin’ @ The Dirty Awards!

25 11 2008


Ok so apparently T.I.’s camp and Shawty Lo’s niggaz got it on @ The Dirty Awards.  Not many details right now.  So I’m going to let AHH do my talking.  


Radio One’s fourth annual Dirty Awards ended abruptly this evening when two separate altercations erupted reportedly between rapper Shawty Lo and members of the Grand Hustle camp tonight (November 24).


An eye witness told that the tension between the two crews mounted during Shawty Lo’s performance, which included a diss version of Grand Hustle artist Yung LA’s song “Ain’t I.”


As Lo performed his version with a chorus “Don’t I,” an audience member identified by an eyewitness as Capitol recording artist Alfamega, allegedly threw a chair onto the stage.


At that point, witnesses say another artist signed to the T.I.-helmed label stormed the stage, at which point authorities proceeded to break a fight.


T.I. himself took the stage shortly after the fight to accept an award following, a reported private conversation with Shawty-Lo, in which the Grammy Award-winning rapper/actor allegedly insisted once again, that the two end their long-running beef.


He proceeded to denounce the violence and negativity and assured the Dirty Awards audience that he did not condone the fighting.


Shortly thereafter, however, a second fight broke out as T.I. performed his verse from “Ain’t I,” allegedly substituting some lyrics with verbal jabs at Shawty Lo, with whom he has had an unpleasant relationship throughout the year.


Towards the end of the performance, another member of the Grand Hustle camp allegedly jumped off stage and assaulted a man witnesses said was Shawty Lo’s brother.


Police officers then halted the awards show, using pepper spray to end the fight.


While the Dirty Awards audience was immediately evacuated, witnesses say other altercations may have occurred outside of the event.

T.I. Will Appear At The Trial of the Men Who Killed His Best Friend…Testify?

19 11 2008




You know I’ve always been in T.I.’s corner when it came to him turning his life around.  I’ve never been on e of these ignorant fools who thought he snitched.  Or, when he came out saw him cooperating with police and law enforcement as him being an informant.  First off, its obviously apart of his plea agreement.  Second of all, what is the matter with him turning a 180 with his life after being knocked SO MANY times?  Do we knock people that do?  Paper Trail is T.I.P’s best album!  It shows his growth from Trap Muzik (which every southern dope boy with the exception of Jeezy) try to emulate to a more mature individual!  What the fuck is wrong with that?  Nothing!  And, I actually have no problem with him attending the case of the men who killed his BEST FRIEND!  Him testifying?  I don’t know what he can testify on if he can’t ID the shooters.  He was definitely on the scene and he is a superstar witness.  But, how can he help the prosecution’s case if he was ducking bullets his damn self?  Describe what happened?  But, what’s really sad is that one of the brother’s told on the other.  THAT IS SOME FIRST 48 TYPE SHIT!  The brother’s called the FEDS on the other.  Now, I can imagine the pressure to do it with EVERYONE knowing about it and the family being torn apart but wow selling out your brother and NOT GETTING ANY JAIL TIME!  And, he’s testifying in his brother’s case?!?  That’s bigger than T.I.  testifying!  That’s real life shit!!!  Anywho…Check out the press release from AHH. 


One of two men implicated in the murder of T.I.’s childhood friend Philant Johnson went on trial yesterday (November 18) in Cincinnati facing multiple charges including murder and felonious assault.


Authorities spent almost two years investigating the May 2006 chase and shoot out that left Johnson dead and three other individuals in the Grand Hustle camp wounded.


It wasn’t until this past summer that police caught a break, which lead to the arrest of 40-year-old Padron Thomas and 36-year-old Hosea Thomas, who stands on trial alone in the crime.


The elder Thomas brother, along with two others charged with federal gun crimes, contacted officials earlier this year with details of the incident, effectively pointing the finger at Hosea as the killer.


According to Padron Thomas, he and his friends confronted T.I. and his crew over gaining entry to the VIP area at Club Ritz in the Roselawn area of Cincinnati. Following the ensuing fight, the Atlanta-based rapper and his entourage left the scene in two vans.


They were chased by a green Jeep Cherokee, from which the shots were later fired.


Padron Thomas has admitted to driving the vehicle and told authorities that his brother Hosea fired shots at the vans, one which was described as a “horror scene,” with blood and brain matter dripping from the ceiling.


He also claims that at least one member of T.I.’s camp returned fire.


While Hamilton County prosecutor Heather Gosselin indicated in her opening statement that the states case would “come down to witness testimony,” Hosea Thomas’ lawyer Charles Isaly pointed out that the character of those witnesses should be questioned.


He insisted that all of the prosecution’s proposed witnesses are out to paint his client in a negative light in order to obtain reduced sentences for their own crimes.


Padron Thomas’ plea deal has guaranteed that he will serve no time behind bars for his part in the incident.


Prosecutors have allowed him to plead guilty to a reduced charge of manslaughter, dropping the murder charges he originally faced alongside his brother.


They had also agreed to allow him to serve any sentence he receives concurrently with his federal prison sentence.


T.I. is expected to testify in the trial, which will most likely extend into next week.

T.I. and Shawty Lo End Beef…Shawty Lo Gives Up!

11 09 2008


4:30 into the clip Shawty L-O says “the beef is dead”.  Bout fucking time caz T.I. waxed this nigga.  I wonder who waved the flag.  My thought is Lo’s people got at TIP’s people and Lo called Tip and Tip said it’s cool homie.  I think TIP knows Lo’s true colors as us al should.  Lo just wanted attention and he got it.  T.I. stomped him, and now nobody likes him.  So, he ended the beef.  Duh!

T.I. No Matter What Video (My Favorite Song of 2008)

28 06 2008


After seeing this video, it makes me realize how much I really like T.I.  I love how this dude spit real shit.  He can make you feel his trials and tribulation.  He also inspires you to pull through whatever you going through.  I’m really on this song.  I know it came out months ago, but I love this record.  Its thick with content and the lyrics are amazing.  This is what makes T.I.P. better than Wayne to me.  He relates real life through his music better than anyone in the game right now even Jay-Z.  This is my favorite song out right now.  I love this song.
