T.I. has delivered a lengthy speech where he weighed in on the Capitol Hill attack earlier this week.
“Happy New Year,” he said laughing. “Welcome to the future. Can ya’ll believe the sh*t we saw yesterday. I mean, did you see it? This sh*t don’t surprise any of us. This is the thing. We got to understand, we don’t have the same immunity. We can’t be out there fighting the same fight as white folk. Cause we gon’ end up being the only muthaf*ckas to get shot down, killed, or end up in prison. Until we get the same kind of immunity, the same consideration and acknowledgment, we can’t be out there. We’re going to be the ones that get killed.”
“Let the whites fight,” he continued. “Our allies, get out there and do your things. If we can find a way to do something behind the scenes and be an asset to you, we will. But we can’t be out there. Nah man. They gon’ look the other way when ya’ll do it. The sh*t was planned. That sh*t wasn’t haphazard. The man said he’ll see us in January. It was marked on the date. ‘See you on January 6th.’ I saw my boy Trae posted that sh*t. But these muthaf*ckas already knew.”
