T.I. Covers XXL (July/August 2010)

No mugshot. The King lands himself the cover of XXL‘s summer issue. In the excerpt from his story below, TIP addresses the constant snitch rumors. Read  up. Issue hits newsstands July 6.

“What people don’t take into consideration is the reason that I was eligible for certain agreements that they weren’t eligible for was because I made myself a useful member of society. Most muthafuckas catch cases and get time. My nigga, you wasn’t doing shit when you was out here, so wasn’t no reason for them to keep you out here. Please understand the G code that I learned from, if you speak out your mouth that a muthafucka is telling on somebody and you can’t come with indisputable, irrefutable facts to support that statement, that makes you the sucker,” T.I. said. “You are now in violation of the G code. And there ain’t nobody, nowhere in naan jail sayin’ I was on they paperwork.”

  • Ultrakid

    @I FUCK HOOKERZ AND JIZZ ON THEIR TITTIES,
    I’m not going to explain to you why it isn’t real because like the rest of the dumbasses who believe that Illuminati bull you’re just going to ignore the facts and reply with something stupid.

    Or fuck it test me—-What is the Illuminati’s puropse, huh??? Because it seems like every artists who’s doing something different(ARTISTIC) is part of the Illuminati and you Illuminati theorist can’t even make up your minds about what the Illuminati is. First their a bunch of devil worshipper then their the EVIL music industry well fuck that movie bullshit and cut the crap guys—You must have your head so far up your ass you don’t even know what the REAL is like anymore more.

    @I FUCK HOOKERZ AND JIZZ ON THEIR TITTIES,
    I did look into it and see this is exactly what I said would happen. Did you even read my comment? I asked you something my dude… This is what I hate–I ask you guys a question and then you guys never give me a damn answer and when you do it’s always something stupid.

  • http://rapradar.com CantGetRight

    @ ultrakid

    Bruh if u can make a argument as to why everything on this site right here http://vigilantcitizen.com/ is bull im down to see what you got to say. Because since i’ve found that site,its been messing with my head every since lol. The way they broke down Jay’s “run this town” video was crazy. Im just 50/50 with this “secret society” shit right now.

    As for TIP claiming to be King of the South,truthfully nobody gives a damn about that shit down here. IMO Facemob holds that title but I aint about to debate with no nigga about it lol. Let that man rock his invisible crown

  • will

    HE GOT A POINT WITH THE MOST NIGGAS WASNT DOING NOTHING anyway line thats true why the fucc would they look out for you if they give you a chance you most likely going bacc to doing the shit that got you in the situation

  • will

    sO iCY bOI SOUTHERNERS PLEASE EXPLAIN THAT SHIT TO ME

    Ti a Snitch and a Bitch But Ross is Hood?

  • Ultrakid

    OK, I’m done talking to you dumbass Illuminati theorist. I bet you also think the man landing was fake right??? Fuck out of here with your crazy conspiracy theories. All you guys do is give me the same bullshit and you reply with a stupid answer all the time so I’m out.

    Believe what you want you to believe—You’re obviously bored and have no life at all.

    @will

    i’m from atlanta. TIP still gets all the love he’s always gotten. i ain’t a rick ross fan, but niggas fuck with him… but not even close to the level they fuck with tip. i can’t speak for the rest of the south but i do know what’s going on in the A. and it’s all love for TI…. sure there are people who speculate his sentence, but those are just stragglers.

  • Justin

    TI… dont get so cocky.. or u gonna need more guns and silencers..

  • Nathaniel

    @Ultrakid

    the whole stop snitching thing is ancient in the black community. going all the way back to the 40’s and ever since we’ve been criminalized in american social life, black communities have been police states. meaning the police operate more like gestapo than the “protect and serve” posterchildren they’re supposed to be. the harass, brutalize, wrongfully gun down and murder, and operate more like the enemy than a friend of the people. this is why malcolm x said “if you want justice, you get it in the street” and also why the black panthers patrolled their own neighborhoods, armed. in a community where we don’t have anybody to rely on but us, even against the criminal element, snitching to the police is foolish. 1. they don’t give a fuck. 2. they aren’t there to help you. 3. they can’t protect you. 4. they’re agents of injustice.

    so even though, to the white collar upright nigga, the way cam’ron spoke is unfavorable, he’s from harlem… where niggas don’t fuck with police. and rightfully so. this is why snitching is so looked down upon in the black community as opposed to white suburbs where police protect the citizens… from the black community. and as far as they’re concerned we’re all scum. whether you’re guilty of crime or not, you’re look at as a problem just because where you live. your condition.

    fuck the police. people call the cops… but i know of niggas that have had loved ones murdered and didn’t. they said “for what”? and handled it they damn self. yeah, it’s fucked up… but an intelligent person with an objective, open mind can see the method to this so-called madness. peace

    @ ultrakid

    Nigga I said im down to see what you have to say,but now you dont wanna say it. Da fuck???

    @ will
    Dont let these blogs fool you. Hardly anybody down here really messes with Ross like that. Especially on a respect level. As far as respect goes,Boosie gets more love than ANYBODY down here. But 1 thing im confused about is,For Ross to be a fake ass nigga,he sure does get alot of co signs by niggas with Street cred. Jeezy,Bun,gotti,Styles,FUCKIN KOOL G RAP!,shit I seen a vid of the nigga just chillin in the Bronx and didnt a damn thing go down. Maybe they know sumthin we dont

  • Nathaniel

    and also, who is going to protect you when you do start snitching and niggas catch wind of it? the police damn sure aren’t. people are tryna preserve their lives… so the best option it seems is to keep your mouth shut or handle your own affairs. the average nigga isn’t carrying a gun because its cool, or because he’s looking to shoot sumbody. he just doesn’t want to die. fucked up ain’t it? yeah it is. don’t believe these rappers are making kids criminals. we’ve BEEN had this self-destructive issue. its deeper than rap… lol no rick ross*

    You said the whole illuminati thing is crap and im tryna find out from you why it is. Like I said,I found that website where they talk about it, and the only answer i’ve come across is that they are “an elite class of people that are seeking a population of about a billion to carry out their tasks that they need done to support and sustain their own lives” Through mind control and whatnot. I didnt say I fully believed in the shit. But I havent seen an argument yet shooting this down either. So explain cause I wanna know my damn self lol

  • http://www.twitter.com/GetMoney007 GetMoney007

    Yo I’m with @Ultrakid on this… I heard some say “That even if the Illuminati is real and Jay-Z,T.I.,Rihanna are all in it what the hell are you gonna do about?Not shit cuz you can’t get 5 feet from Jay or T.I. much less the evil overlords that are behind them.”…. And what effect does it have on you?None.These are entertainers… that’s it…. all they do in my life is entertain me for a few mins. or hrs. when they drop a new song,album,or movie.

    ———————————————————————————————————————–

    Who have you heard claim that Ross is one of the realest mf'ers out the South? Just asking since I am in the South (are you?) and I can't recall hearing anyone state that. People like his shit because he CONSISTENTLY makes quality rap music…something that is VERY RARE in this game (and not just nowadays. It's ALWAYS been that way). You'd think in 2010 yall sheep would realize this rap shit ain't no different than cinema. 90% of it is made to entertain in the same way a movie is. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Oh, and another thing. Yall “slow” (a gentler and kinder way of saying “retarded”) motherfuckers don’t seem to realize that nothing makes you sound more embarrassingly ignorant than bringing up that hip hop illuminati conspiracy bullshit. It’s scary how many uninformed people armed with nothing more than some ol’ far fetched pea-brained nonsense they read on a ridiculous conspiracy site or message board actually believe this stuff. It’s interesting how you all call others being led by the (so-called) illuminati “sheep” for believing the bullshit that is fed to them by the “evil powers that be”, yet in reality, you motherfuckers are the one that read some silly claims on some nutjob’s website and immediately start to preaching and finger pointing. Who’s the real “sheep”…hmmm? Yall take that “reaching” shit to new heights never seen before! If it wasn’t so sad, it’d be laughable…because let’s face it, you’re all a joke.

    Keep dropping knowledge, dum-dums.
