Posted By on June 17, 2014

Atlanta rapper T.I. was recently in a brawl with boxer Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas and he recently sat down and spoke with Hot 97 about the altercation between the two. Tip also spoke on the success of his artist Iggy Azalea.

The Hustle Gang head says he chose to “speak with action” during the fight.

“Had that been anything that did transpire—I’m sure dude may be used to talking after his fights,” T.I. said. “I don’t talk after mines. Cause there ain’t really a whole lot to say, man. You know what I’m saying? I speak with action. After action is taken, man, conversation ceases…There was history. There was definitely history…I don’t care what you do to whoever else. I don’t care who you speak to [or] how you speak to em. [When] you dealing with me you gonna deal with me like a man. I feel like my steps are guided, man. I’m a man of God. When I step I ain’t got nobody to fear, but God himself. I don’t got no fire I can’t walk through. I done been through it all.” (HipHopDX)

Tip also spoke on his artist Iggy Azalea’s success and addressed Forbes’ saying she is running Hip Hop right now.

“To be honest with you, man. Just as a cultivator of talent and as someone who—I’ve been working hard at this level of my career,” he said. “I’ve been working hard to really just try to introduce talent to the world that can be considered significant. And to actually be the first onboard. To be the one to stay ‘This is going to happen.’ And to be, I guess, doubted by so many.

“It’s Forbes though,” the rapper added. “How much can you accredit—But at the moment it was printed was it anything going on that was of larger conversation?” (HipHopDX)
