T.I. has responded to Kodak Black once again after Kodak offered up his theory as to why Tip called him out earlier this week for comments Kodak made about Nipsey Hussle's girlfriend, Lauren London, in the wake of Nipsey's passing.
During an Instagram Live session from earlier today (April 10), Tip said he's only moving how he feels Nipsey would move if he was in his shoes.
"I see myself in this. And I only wanna handle him the way I feel that he would handle me. That’s it," Tip said. "If a muthafucka were to speak out and say something out of line about my old lady after my untimely demise, I feel like he ain’t just gon’ speak up—he gon’ pull up. And I owe him that same respect. I owe him that exact same respect, so I’ma go hard."
Tip's comments were in response to Kodak saying that the only reason the Atlanta rapper was upset was because he wanted "first dibs" on his former ATL co-star.
"Dude just wants first dibs on her," Kodak said on his own Instagram Live on Tuesday. "Eat a baby dick."
The controversy began on Saturday (April 6), when Kodak said during an Instagram Live stream that he'd give the actress a year to grieve the death of Nipsey, who was shot and killed in L.A. on March 31, and then he'd try to get at her. Tip immediately called him out for his comments, as did The Game. Tip even had Kodak's artwork removed from his Trap Museum in Atlanta. In response to his artwork being removed, Kodak called Tip a bitch and doubled down on his initial comments about Lauren.
The negative response to Kodak's comments is not just limited to his rap peers. L.A. radio station Power 106 has since banned the rapper's music, and fans even held a vigil for Nipsey outside of Kodak's show in Norfolk, Va. on Sunday (April 7).
