With Em and Yelawolf holding down the first cover, T.I. lands the other half of VIBE's year-end issue. In the cover story, Tip talks with Bonsu Thompson about his skepticism of Bin Laden's death, gay rights and more. In the quote below, he responds to 50 Cent and everyone else who criticized Tiny for not taking the drug charge.
I’ma tell you, 50 Cent and anybody else, we not gonn’a have no discussion about what my ole lady should’a, would’a, couda done for anything as it pertains to me. We ain’t gonn’a do that. I’m the only one in my family that’s gonna take a lick when it pertains to the legal system. Since me, none of my other family members have seen a jail cell. Nobody. I’m the last one. The buck stops here. I feel that a person that stands behind [his woman for a criminal charge] is a coward anyway.
And of course -- Fif being Fif -- he took to his Twitter right away and had the following to say.
Man I just saw something T.I said in VIBE about a tweet I wrote when he caught his drug case. He just got out a jam and caught a new one. Any other time a nigga done. Get caught with 10 machine gun an silencer then catch a drug charge. You will fuck around and get natural life. This boy got a get outta jail FREE card. Don’t get emotional over your lady. It a get you in some shit you don’t want to be in. If U can get 5 years easy 4 some shit and I’m the support of my family. Why would it be wrong if ya lady had to take probation? Shit she ballin to lol
