Would someone kindly fix Cliff a bottle of A1 steak sauce? I think he's hungry. Seriously, I don't know where this came from. I thought the beef with T.I.P. and Luda was dead, but I also thought The Game and 50 Cent beef was dead. Just call me Mr. Naive.
According to WENN, T.I. feels he should have received the 2007 Grammy for Best Rap Album instead of the Ludacris CD, “Release Therapy.”
"I had the album of the year whether I won a Grammy for it or not,” WENN quotes the rapper as saying. “I think numbers show that. I think that if you go out to anybody on the streets and ask them, they'll tell you.
"I think that it's a no-brainer. You ask him [Ludacris], he'll probably tell you the same thing. Come on, man, who in hip-hop doesn't know that? If you a supporter of hip-hop, who doesn't know that ‘King’ is the only platinum album that dropped last year... that was platinum by the time the New Year’s bell rung? At 12:01, January 1, 2007, who had the hottest album of the year? I think it's unanimous." [ source ]
If you want to get all technical, T.I. did in fact have the highest selling album of last year, but the Grammy award isn't judged on sales; it's judged on talent. Oops! Let the rivalry go, dude! You can't claim to be a "supporter of Hip-Hop" otherwise. I mean, you don't hear MC Shan and KRS One still talking shit about each other, do you?
