“Not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman. Every other position, I believe a woman could do well. But the President? I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally and later they make very permanent decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, cemented decisions – and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen.”
He could have easily given a politically correct response and said ‘I need to see where she stands on the issues’ or ‘I like Bernie Sanders’ but noooooo, he had drop his most sexist bars to date.
I’m pissed but I’m kind of not surprised.
We fell for T.I and his perfectly cocked hat when ‘Trap Muzik‘ dropped in 2003. There’s a 99% chance that I’ll loose my mind at this moment if ‘Get Loose‘ came on right now. He rode that ATL trap music wave from the trap house into our hearts. When he got locked up (the first 2 times) we (women folk) were there for him.
We watched him vote for the first time in 2008. He was excited! He had an amazing TV show, ‘T.I’s Road To Redemption‘ on MTV encouraging young people in Atlanta to get out of the streets.
Throughout the years, we’ve watched him grow as a man & raise his children on the popular ‘T.I & Tiny’s Family Hustle‘. We’ve watched him be super protective over his daughters yet encourage them to be the best they can be without a man.
But lately Tip has been sounding like that uncle who claims to know everything about politics but never voted a day in his damn life. From his almost unwavering defense of Iggy Azalea to his ridiculous fight with Floyd Mayweather, T.I seems to have forgotten who made him successful: women.
His biggest hits: Whatever You Like, My Love, Blurred Lines wouldn’t have been successful without women! Although he blatantly rejects those fans in the interview for his ‘core’ audience, bruh remember you wouldn’t have been able to land on your feet during your multiple arrests without women.
Who held T.I down during multiple arrests? Tiny! We’ve known from his possessive behavior on Tiny’s short lived series ‘Tiny & Toya‘ that Tip is possessive and controlling. So it isn’t surprising that he uttered those dreadful words.
But for real nigga?
It should be noted that he also said that Abraham Lincoln did us a solid and ‘freed the slaves’ and had consensual sex with Black women at the beginning of the interview. BRUH!
T.I was way too comfortable saying those words because he was politicking with fellow fuckboy (do your googles) Whoo Kid.
Save your Oswald Bates apology.
We don’t want to hear that shit. You meant every word of that sexist statement.
You’ve already burned your paper trail with me.
