N.O.R.E. praised T.I. and Boosie Badazz for squashing their recent beef in a peaceful manner during a recent episode of his Drink Champs podcast, which featured Wiz Khalifa. The two rappers had originally planned to work on a collaborative project together, but Boosie called it off when reports surfaced that T.I. worked with the police to avoid jail time. T.I. later clarified that the report stemmed from comments which were taken out of context and the two made amends.

“T.I. and Lil Boosie, I know that you could have went to war, y’all could have just done a whole bunch of tremendous crazy shit, but the fact that y’all show that two Black men can get together and talk it out, I really commend that, I really respect that,” N.O.R.E. said. “I really salute that because we need to keep pushing that. That it’s not always drama.” He continued: “A disagreement doesn’t always lead to y’all fighting and shooting. I love the fact that you got together. So T.I. and Boosie, wherever you are at. I wanna salute. I’m so tired of violence.”

T.I. and Boosie's beef began back in February with Boosie labeling Tip a "rat. Speaking with VladTV, he said: “With the T.I. situation, if he did that – you a fucking rat too. I don’t spare no motherfuckin’ body. Because if you doing anything wrong, you doing anything criminal and you cooperate with law enforcement to get you out of trouble – that means you’re cooperating. That means you’re a rat.”

In proving his innocence to Boosie, T.I. shared a photo of court documents that showed he didn’t snitch on his relative. He also explained that he was using “humor” and “sarcasm” to “embellish" the story that was taken out of context for comedic effect. Speaking with TMZ in March, T.I. downplayed any beef between them and said that Boosie has “come to terms” with the fact that he “misspoke.”
