Rapper TI Slams Georgia Governor's Decisions To Open Businesses: It's Premature!!

Publish date:

Rapper T.I. has weighed in on Georgia Governor Brian Kemp's decision to reopen businesses across the state -- saying it's too early.

Last Fridays, gyms, salons, bowling alleys, barbershops and other small businesses opened across the state. On Monday, Dine-in restaurants were also reopened.

"I think that it's premature… to put it bluntly. We're not at a point where we've flattened the curve yet," he told EXTRA Tv. "I think it's still hitting our hospitals pretty hard and I think it may have been a premature decision."

He continued, "The thing is, we have voices within our culture and the ecosystem of our city, and we speak for the majority when we say, 'Man, we think it's time to sit tight and wait on the next move.' I think that's kind of how people are going to follow through."

Added, "Some of the things just based off what science is saying and common sense tells me that some stuff is kind of off the mark," he said of the government's handling of the pandemic.

T.I. adds that despite the easing up of the lockdown, he will continue to practice social distancing.
