T.I., also known as the King of the South, is one pissed off rapper.
That’s because he’s been connected with a hip hop website that now dead Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev often visited before his demise Thursday night in a shoot out with authorities.
T.I. is insisting that until now, he’d never even heard of Real-HipHop.com. And, on top of that, he wasn’t even aware that his photo was on the site as well. But what he’s also upset about is that hip hop is now connected to the alleged bombers.
“Hip hop narrates the activity and conditions of our culture,” he tells TMZ. “It doesn’t create them.”
He continued: “Hip hop ain’t never been about hurting innocent people.” T. I. concluded by saying that he feels that Boston “was a horrible tragedy and my prayers go out to the families involved.”
What do you think? Is it wrong for the media to associate rap music with the Boston bombing suspect?
