Hip Hop Beats: Kodak Black, T.I., Wiz Khalifa & More!
KODAK BLACK CLAIMS T.I. WANTED 'FIRST DIBS’' ON LAUREN LONDON: Kodak Black claims that the only reason T.I. is criticizing the comments he made about Lauren London is because Tip wanted "dibs" on the actress. During an Instagram Live session, Kodak said, "Dude just wants first dibs on her." He added, "Eat a baby d*ck." As previously reported, after Kodak said that he wanted to romantically pursue London following Nipsey Hussle’s death, T.I. called him out to apologize, saying, "Hey, Kodak Black: You outta pocket, n***a. Fix that sh*t—quickly, expeditiously. … If I see you, I’ma say it to your face. You outta pocket, n***a. Get your motherf***in' self together." T.I. has since explained why he is going so hard on Kodak. He explained, "I see myself in this. And I only wanna handle him the way I feel that he would handle me. That’s it … If a motherf***a were to speak out and say something out of line about my old lady after my untimely demise, I feel like he ain’t just gonna speak up, he gonna pull up. I owe Nipsey that same respect. I owe him that exact same respect, so I'ma go hard."
