50 Cent and T.I. Bury the Hatchet

50 Cent and T.I. Bury the Hatchet

50 Cent explains how he resolved recent issues with T.I.

Published December 28, 2011

After a spat over some insensitive remarks made on Twitter last month, 50 Cent and T.I. have officially buried the hatchet. In an interview with VIBE, 50 says he and Tip took things offline and settled their issues via a phone call.

“We got mutual friends and I was actually in conversation with one of them, and they were around him,” Fif explained. “I didn’t tell him to get [T.I.] on the phone and [T.I.] didn’t tell him to get me on the phone, it was just there and it was like, 'Yo, you just need to talk to him because you don't know where he's coming from."

50 got on T.I.'s bad side when he took to the social network to suggest that T.I.'s wife Tiny should have taken the fall for the drug charges that landed him in prison last year. T.I. didn't appreciate the comments and, in his own interview with VIBE, said as much.

"I’ma tell you, 50 Cent and anybody else: we not gonna have no discussion about what my ole lady shoulda, woulda, coulda done for anything as it pertains to me. We ain’t gonna do that. I’m the only one in my family that’s gonna take a lick when it pertains to the legal system," Tip said. "Since me, none of my other family members have seen a jail cell. Nobody. I’m the last one. The buck stops here. I feel that a person that stands behind [his woman for a criminal charge] is a coward anyway.”

At the time, 50 responded to the comments by suggesting that T.I. was being irrational.

"You will f**k around and get natural life. This boy got a get outta jail FREE card. Don’t get emotional over your lady. It a get you in some sh*t you don’t want to be in," he wrote on Twitter. "If U can get 5 years easy 4 some sh*t and I’m the support of my family. Why would it be wrong if ya lady had to take probation? Sh*t she ballin to lol."

After speaking with T.I. over the phone, however, the G-Unit boss said he gained a better understanding of where Tip was coming from and that there would be no beef between the two of them.

"We got into it and he had a lot of legitimate points,” 50 said of the at-the-time heated conversation.

Conflict (hopefully) resolved.
