IT apparently returned to the cabin to proclaim his innocence of the sexual assault and drug allegations.
On Friday May 21, the 40-year-old Atlanta native released a new single, “What It’s Come To.” On the new track, the rhymer appears to be responding to claims that he and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, sexually assaulted and drugged at least 20 women. the the allegations date back to 2005.
Towards the end of the first verse, he raps, “Go put your face and your reputation on it / These kinds of claims deserve more than anonymous conversations / Provocation, don’t they? / They say hit it with the one-two / You see how many niggas that been done to / Speak for the folks, all you did we can undo / Welcome to pro-intel part two, damn that’s what it has come. “
Earlier in the trail, TI made reference to the extortion, suggesting that the unnamed person (s) mentioned on the trail are illegally trying to force Tip to lose money. Later lines of the song indicate that TI is unwilling to pay for these charges to go away.
He spits out, “Fuck I’m riding the jury, who are you lying about Shawty? / Extortion is what you thinkin ‘, shawty? / Tell them,’ Understand how you live, shawty, I’m not going for that ‘/ I’m gonna take it all, everyday of the week / I bet you thought that shit was sweet and that I would pay off in a week / And you could take that shit or leave it, I’m just saying my song / I’ watched all the traffic when you play in the street. “
TI first teased the track on Instagram, sharing an image of the handwritten lyrics with a snippet of the song in the background.
This is not the first time that Tip or Tiny have spoken out on the allegations made against them. At the end of January, when allegations of their wrongdoing began to spread on the internet, the couple publicly maintained their innocence and continued to do so over the following months.
As recently as this week, the LAPD launched an investigation in the couple living in Georgia in connection with allegations of sexual assault brought against them. The Las Vegas Metro Police Department, however, chose not to investigate because allegations of sexual abuse against Tip and Tiny date back to 2010, which is outside the legal agency’s statute of limitations.
