On Tuesday June 8, Tip released a new video for his latest single, “What is it about”, Where he addresses allegations of sexual abuse in a visual way. In the clip, TI is in the studio booth answering his accusers and calling them liars.
“I’m gonna stand up straight like a statue / Damn nigga, ‘He say she say’ if the receipts say that shit isn’t factual / I was built for all that shit, God sent me here with a mission, “he recalls.
At the end of the video, it looks like TI is announcing their latest studio album. In royal style typography it reads, “Kill the king– the last album. Coming soon. ”TI has yet to release any information regarding the project’s release date.
Meanwhile, one of Tip’s accusers, Sabrina Peterson, responded to her clip making fun of her for asking for an apology from the rapper from Atlanta in exchange for dropping his libel case against TI and Tiny.
In a post now deleted from his Instagram story, Paterson said humiliating him wouldn’t stop him from reporting Tip.
“I have had problems with the federal government before,” she wrote. “It doesn’t matter what the public thinks of [you] they cannot save you. Since your million dollar team won’t tell you. You are not making fun of me, you are making fun of your investigators. You don’t taunt me, you ignite more women who have remained silent than you have victimized. “
Paterson also added that TI only hurts itself and its clip encourages the shame of victims.
“A lot of your fans have been victimized in their lifetime,” she captioned her IG Unavailable post. “Your tactics aren’t pretty. It’s actually sad! It’s heartbreaking! It’s one thing to put a gun to a woman’s head, but it’s something totally different to keep trying. to victimize this woman over and over again When all is said and done I took the high road and tried to show mercy but you repaid it with mockery.
“To all the men, his women who victimize, just note that your victim might be a child today, she might be broke today, she might be stupid today, but you DO NOT DON’T KNOW WHO YOUR VICTIMS WILL BECOME ”, she continued. “The shame of the victim is not OK!”
Sexual abuse allegations against TI and Tiny was first revealed in January by Peterson, who originally posted a dozen other women’s claims. Peterson also accused Tip of pointing a gun at her at one point.
TI and Tiny have since denied all charges made by Peterson and other women who filed complaints against them.
