Earlier this week, T.I. criticized Kodak Black for his controversial comments about Lauren London and Nipsey Hussle. Now the Atlanta rapper has seemingly condemned the Florida-based artist even further.
T.I.’s Trap Music Museum, in northwest Atlanta, had included an art exhibit dedicated to Black, but it was recently scrapped.
In a short video that surfaced online, three men were taking down a wall featuring five paintings of Black. The recording ended after a security guard asked the recorder to stop filming.
Black responded to the display being discarded by uploading an expletive-laden message on Instagram Live on Tuesday.
“I ain't give y'all permission to put me up there anyway,” he said.
On Thursday, T.I. reacted to Black’s comments, telling TMZ, “That’s all his brain capacity could come up with.”
“The respect of a non-respectable person is not valued,” he continued. “The laws of reciprocity are in order at all times. You get what you give.”
The removal of the installation comes after the “ZEZE” emcee posted an Instagram Live last week where he talked extensively about his admiration for Lauren London.
“I’ll be the best man I can be for her. I’ll give her a whole year. She might need a whole year to be crying and (expletive) for (Hussle),” Kodak said in the video.
Hussle, London’s longtime boyfriend, was shot and killed March 31 in front of his store Marathon Clothing in South Los Angeles. Eric Holder, an associate of Hussle, has been charged with murder but has pleaded not guilty.
Although Black later apologized for his remarks, T.I., The Game, Tank, Big Boy of Los Angeles’ Power 92.3, DJ Justin Credible of Los Angeles’ Power 106 FM, and many others had already chastised him. Credible even said he would ban Black’s music from his station.
