Grammy-winning rapper T.I. has slammed Kanye West in the name of Harriet Tubman. The King of the South has stepped up to go off-off on the G.O.O.D Music boss following controversial remarks he made about the iconic abolitionist.
T.I. x Kanye West
On Monday, Tip went to his social media pages and didn’t hold back on checking Kanye. The Atlanta native and publicized Black Lives Matter activist spoke up for Tubman’s legacy and blasted Ye for downplaying Tubman’s historic contributions to helping the liberation of Blacks during slavery times.
“Nahhhh WE Can’t let you do that Ye’…. What WE NOT gon do is slander nor disrespect the legacy of our heroic Queen Harriet Tubman by telling falsities in an attempt to discredit the contributions she made to LIBERATE OUR PEOPLE‼️ Cuzz U BUGGIN‼️ THIS IS ABSOLUTELY TOO FAR‼️ I truly hope you either have a logical explanation for all this… or get the medical attention you so desperately need Bro. I say this with love and sincerity.” -T.I.’s Instagram
Prior to T.I. slamming Kanye West, R&B singer Trey Songz went online with footage of Ye explaining his feelings toward Tubman. Songz questioned Kanye’s state of mind and encouraged his peers to reach out to West.
“They been sayin man Trey need to call these n*ggas before he just put em online blastin. Ye you in the way of progress foreal, how you turn this goofy from who you were? I’m so confused, whoever got his number need to call him.” -Trey Songz’s Instagram
Wait, There’s More
On Sunday, rap star 50 Cent shared the same super cringe footage. In the clip, Yeezy is shown explaining how he believes Tubman didn’t liberate Black people during slavery times and blamed West’s comments on music mogul JAY-Z.
“😆what the f**k did he just say. This is all Jay z fault , kanye’s first Rally. LOL #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi” -50 Cent’s Instagram
“When Harriet Tubman, well Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves. She just had the slaves go work for other white people.” -Kanye West
Before You Go
On Sunday, Kanye put together an epic presidential rally event at Exquis Event Center in North Charleston, South Carolina. In addition to discussing Harriet Tubman, West spoke on his marriage to reality TV star Kim Kardashian and his past struggles with abortion.
During a rambling speech at the Exquis Event Center in North Charleston, the rapper, 43, was at times happy, angry and sad as he spoke out against abortion and the morning-after pill, saying, “No Plan B. There is Plan A.” West got emotional when he revealed that Kardashian, 39, had called him when they were dating and she was freaking out after a doctor’s appointment and he thought he gave her AIDS cause he was living the rapper lifestyle. Then she told him that she was pregnant and he was relieved but they spoke about Kim taking a pill, to end the pregnancy. (Us Weekly)
