Part of what comes with the territory of being in the spotlight is celebrities having to interact with fans pretty much every time they step out of their homes — and that even includes routine errands such as filling up at a gas station.
Recently, T.I. was taking care of business and pumping his gas, like us non-famous folk do, when an overeager fan went out of his way to show love to the rapper as well as prove to his social media followers that he and Tip met in the flesh. (Because if you didn't take a selfie, does it even count?)
During the interaction, T.I. humors the fan and poses for the first photo. However, once it becomes clear that one selfie wasn't enough, Tip just had to turn the situation into a teachable moment.
"Just how many selfies you gon' take?" the rapper asks the fan, later alleging that the man took at least six, therefore going over the limit of how many selfies a grown man should be taking in these streets, celebrity or not.
From there, the scene escalates, with more onlookers participating and commenting on the situation and the original fan accusing T.I. of wanting to get into some "gangsta s**t." Naturally, things got carried away and T.I. definitely wasn't all about it.
Take a look at the footage below and catch Tip offering his two cents regarding his adult male fans and their selfie habits. Considering what we all see on our timelines every day, some of you could benefit from listening to the rapper's sound words of advice and ease up on the "grown a** man" selfies.
