T.I. and The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida had a heated exchange of words yesterday when Tip checked Nida for trying to compare their federal cases on Twitter.
"It ain’t no cooperating with the Feds….so don’t compare our situations," Tip told Nida at a parking lot confrontation in Atlanta. T.I. was referring to Nida’s recent deal with the feds in which he copped a plea in his wire and bank fraud case and agreed to become an informant.
"Perception is reality, so clarify that for the people," Tip instructed as the reality star attempted to defend the tweet by showing the rapper what was written. Nida has since taken the tweet down, but in it he mentioned Michael Vick’s 2007 conviction for dogfighting. T.I.’s homie Killer Mike chimed in, telling Nida, "You don’t know his case and he doesn’t know your case."
T.I.'s frustration is most likely linked to his 2011 federal gun charges, in which Tip was released early from prison, serving only 10 months of an 11-month sentence. The early release ignited rumors of possible snitching, but TMZ obtained a copy of T.I.’s plea agreement, which showed there was a NO snitching clause.
