Lil Wayne Responds To TI

Lil Wayne responds to TI with a short tweet on Saturday, November 5, 2016.  Scroll to the Twitter post below to see Lil Wayne’s “fk ya” which many believe was a shot at TI.  Wayne posted the message a few hours after the Atlanta rapper called him out on Instagram.  We fully agree with TI but we’re surprised that he chose to call Weezy out publicly.

In the Instagram post below, the rapper, whose real name is Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr. explains that he has known Lil Wayne for years and he understands his personality.  He discusses his daughter’s great relationship with Wayne’s daughter.  Clifford reveals that when he was locked up, his daughter would spend time over Wayne’s house with his daughter.

Harris further explained that when Wayne was in jail, his daughter would spend time over his house with his daughter.  The rapper sets the stage to tell Wayne that he is out of line, despite the fact that he’s not wired like a responsible adult:

@liltunechi This is my son & daughter showing me this for the first time & asking me what you mean? I’m at a complete loss of words here. Wayne I’ve known you over a decade. Our daughters grew up together practically. Reginae’ spent countless times at my house with Niq-Niq when you were in prison & you extended my daughter the same courtesy when I was in the same position. Our relationship outside of music is what makes me sensitive to your disposition. I KNOW you wired a bit different than most other responsible adults, but still nigga U TRIPPING!!!! I don’t know what you goin thru,or what you are attempting to avoid but this shit is absolutely unacceptable!!!! You’re disrespecting yourself,bringing shame on your family name & tarnishing your legacy. You have children (including mines prior to now) that have looked up to you. You have sons & a daughter that depend upon your leadership. Bro if you don’t stand for something out here,all the money,jewelry,cars,mansions bandannas & hit records don’t mean shit!!!! Our people are being oppressed!!! We are being hunted,captured & slaughtered out here daily!!! You have to get outta that bubble that you’ve been living in & get out here & educate yourself on what’s going on around US!!! I’m always here to share whatever knowledge or understanding I may have to assist your growth & development,but u MUST STOP this buffoonery & coonin’ you out here doin. You looking like somebody who has something to gain or lose by pretending like it’s not as bad as BLM making it seem & you’re not aware of an issue that needs to be addressed. That’s what would be considered “Uncle Tom Shit”…. I know U,YOURE BETTER THAN THIS!!!!! I’ve been proud to call myself a fan & a friend of Lil Wayne ,but if that must end in order to stand up for those who can’t do it for themselves…So be it. If you’re not prepared for a question in an interview,say No Comment Bro. But stop embarrassing yourself & everyone out here who’s been supporting you. There is no middle ground. Oppression knows no neutral party,either you’re part of the oppressed,or you with the oppressor. There is no such thing as oppression not affecting you. It’s #USorELSE out here

Many believe that the post below is a shot at TI.  Wayne doesn’t spend much time on social media therefore he wouldn’t just make the post for no reason.  We don’t agree with Wayne’s comments but TI shouldn’t kick a friend while he’s down.  Reposting the interview and writing him a 400 word Instagram message is excessive.

Wayne got his point across in two words:
