Boosie Cancels Joint Album With T.I. After Tip Admits To Snitching On Dead Cousin

Boosie Badazz and T.I. hinted at a joint project together but it seems a recent interview with the self-proclaimed King Of The South has put those plans on hold indefinitely. During an episode of experdiTIously in 2020, T.I. explained that he caught a gun charge with his cousin, though it was later dismissed. “After he had passed, I had a talk with him. Toot said, 'I’ll take all the charges you got! If you can walk away free and put it on me, goddamn right!” Tip recalled his cousin telling him. 

The story appeared to be an attempt to shrug off allegations that he snitched, which have haunted him over the years. Unfortunately, it’s done quite the opposite. Many found it questionable, and even dishonorable, that he went as far as pinning the charges against his deceased cousin. It brought up a debate on whether or not this should be considered snitching. Some felt as though it does while others, like Yung Joc, felt it was a loophole in the street code. 

Boosie: If T.I. Did That, You’re A F*cking Rat, Too

Boosie Badazz had strong opinions when Birdman’s brother, Terrence “Gangsta” Williams, admitted to similarly snitching on the dead. At the time, Williams discussed his own experience in defense of T.I. Still, Boosie felt as though T.I. crossed a line if he actually did what he said. “If he did that, you’re a fuckin’ rat, too,” he said. “I don’t spare no-mothafuckin’-body… if you cooperate with law enforcement to get you out of trouble… that means you’re a rat.”

The Louisiana rapper explained that he didn’t think T.I. was speaking truthfully when he spoke on snitching on his dead cousin. “I think he went up there and got to f*ckin’ talkin’,” Boosie continued. Despite doubting the validity of T.I.’s statements, he said that he will no longer release their joint project. “I’m like why the fuck he say that when we got a fucking album ‘bout to come out?!” he said. “It ruined everything,” he added, explaining that his fans would be devastated if he went forward with the project. However, he confirmed that the project is complete. Check the Interview with Vlad TV above.
