T.I. has reached his wits’ end with Kanye West after his highly-publicized visit to the White House.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the Atlanta rapper expressed his disappointed with West, who met with President Donald Trump Thursday to discuss prison reform and a host of other issues.
“This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one's soul to gain power I've ever seen,” he wrote.
T.I. even claimed the Chicago emcee invited him to tag along for the trip to D.C., but he declined.
“I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak, & inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!!” he continued. “At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you... now, I'm ashamed to have ever been associated with you.”
T.I. went on to call West a “puppet,” a “lil cookie boy” and said his soul was “on auction.” But he didn’t stop there. He had a message for West’s fans, too.
“To all the people who follow Ye musically,socially, or even personally....who are confused, heartbroken, infuriated.... Let me make this clear... THIS [expletive] AINT COOL!!! THIS IS A MOVE YE MADE FOR YE!!! ... WE ARE NOT ON HIS MIND AS HE MAKES THESE COMMENTS AND DECISIONS,” he said.
T.I. ended his rant by telling his followers that he had reached his limits. “This is my stop,” he exclaimed. “I’m officially DONE!!!!”
T.I. wasn’t the only celebrity to call out the artist, although he recently agreed with part of West’s call to abolish the 13th Amendment. 50 Cent, Diddy, Jeffrey Wright and others also shared their criticisms of West’s meeting.
