T.I sparked an interesting conversation!
Earlier this week, the Atalanta rapper challenged 50 Cent to a VERZUZ battle. 50 responded in a joking matter and shot the idea down. On Fif’s Instagram he reposted an article about the challenge and in the caption, said, “yo somebody passed T.I the weed they gave Smokey in Friday.”
However, T.I claims that 50 cent wasn’t even his first choice! HNHH reports T.I initially wanted to battle New York’s very own Jay-Z. T.I said during an interview,
“To be honest with you man, I want Jay!” T.I. revealed. “Who can see [Jay-Z] sitting down to do a battle? If I’m a billionaire, I’m not finna do that, either, but me and 50 ain’t that far off. As far as our confidence, as far as our bankrolls go, we kinda neck and neck, whether he wants to [admit] it or not. And another thing, it’s personality. I need somebody who has a personality that won’t be so intimidated by my bravado.”
When T.I talked about why he wanted to battle 50 Cent, T.I said that he was “doper” and his catalog was better.
“I don’t care who sold however many records, I don’t care who has more number ones whether that means I’m up, meaning I have more number ones, more records sold, less records sold. Don’t care about that. I think my catalog is doper.”
It seems unlikely that a VERZUZ will happen between T.I and 50 Cent or Hov, but which battle do you think would be the best fit for T.I. Who really has the BIGGER hits?
