Reduced-time rapper/actor/weapon connoisseur Clifford “T.I.P.” Harris has an entirely different type of Paper Trail for the peoples of Atlanta to follow.
“Yeen’t gotta leave yo’ home all night.
If you got a phone, drop dime on ya nig-ger-row [Negro]
Whenever you liiiiiiiike!/
Yeah. You can snitch whenever you like.” -T.I., Channel 2 News (Atlanta) via WSHH
I’m not going to go as far as using the “s”-word to describe civilians reporting crime in their own neighborhoods. [We've already eased on down Definition Road with the likes of Cam'ron and other misguided rapsters who fail to understand the concept's confinement to a particular field, game or industry.] However, a spearchucker like T.I. ought to know better than to…
Wait a minute. What “s”-word y’all thought I was talking about?
Oh, I kid the spearchuckers. It’s easy, fun and no one seems to care about penalizing it no matter how insensitive the jokes get.
T.I. completely put the kibosh on his shit when he said “Some people call me Tip, but this is about another kind of ‘tip.’“ I don’t care if you’re the biggest T.I. hater on earth or if he brought a turkey to your doorframe last Thanksgiving. That shit is hilarious. While Mr. Harris may have been brainwashed into believing he’s empowering his community with this insight, he’s only empowering Shawty Lo’s next abysmal effort to defame the Grand Hustler’s character.
Homie just gave that cockface “L-Oh” another prosthetic leg to sling behind Fabo’s neck. Good work, pimpin’.
Being that snitching has supplanted [male] homosexuality as the new cardinal sin of “urban” black culture, you’d think a gangster rapper such as Mr. Harris would have lobbied to work out another means of fulfilling his community service requirement. I’m all the way up-top, as they say in the A. I can only imagine watching T.I. headline a Crimestoppers spot down there being akin to catching a Whitney Houston canvassing for Narcotics Anonymous--Confusion abound.
I mean, damn. Only worse would be to find out that Alpa Chino had denounced tha pussy.
