After calling T.I. a “snitch” and a “bum,” Lil Pump seems to have a beef with the Atlanta rap superstar. The “Gucci Gang” rapper made the derogatory remarks on Instagram Live on Tuesday (March 21). He also discussed his recent “paperwork party” and the controversy surrounding Tip’s admission that he once blamed a gun case on his deceased relative.

T.I. has not yet responded, so it’s unknown what provoked the verbal assault against him. Since shooting a Crime Stoppers advertisement as part of his plea agreement in his 2007 gun case, T.I. has been plagued by claims that he has been snitching. The rapper could have received a 10-year prison term, but only received a one-year, one-day sentence.
With a rediscovered clip from a 2020 episode of his “expediTIously” podcast revealed Tip admitting to placing a gun case on his deceased cousin Toot in the early 2000s to avoid going to jail, the attention has increased recently. He said he “had a talk” with Toot, who died before the case went to trial, and that the deceased person gave him the go-ahead to tell law enforcement that the gun belonged to him.
T.I.’s remarks infuriated prominent anti-snitch campaigner Boosie Badazz, who labeled him a “rat” and aborted the joint album they were preparing to release together.
