Busta Rhymes Called T.I. Out
Last week, T.I. made headlines when he brought up an old rumor about Canadian superstar Drake that had a lot of fans eager for a lyrical war to kick off between the two. Earlier this week, Busta Rhymes issued a challenge to battle T.I. on Verzuz, to which Tip has responded.
Tip Passes On Busta Battle
While T.I. made sure to pay all due respect to Bussa Bust and his lengthy history in the industry, he declined the offer by citing their difference in age. “I just think the generational gap might be a little too much,” Tip said about the former member of Leaders Of The New School. For what it’s worth, Busta Rhymes is 48 years old and T.I. is 40.
