FRESH NEWS FROM USA
T.I. didn’t hold back during a recent BET Rate The Bars segment. The always outspoken ATLien was tasked with rating bars from a variety of rappers, including Iggy Azalea, 2Pac and B.o.B.
Despite his status as one of Hip Hop’s greats, the late Tupac Shakur received a rating of 1 from T.I. for his “Something Wicked” lyrics.
“I give this a 1. I gave it a 1 because it’s ‘rat, cat, dog, fog, run, fun.’ I’m done,” T.I. said.
“It rhymes. And they’re talking about things. I give it a 2.5,” he said.
Naturally, T.I. showed little bias when rating his own bars. He gifted himself with a 3.5 for his “savvy” double entendres on “King of Da South.”
Fellow Atlanta rapper B.o.B walked away with the highest rating from T.I. thanks to a sampling of bars from his Ether track, “E.T.”
For B.o.B’s lines, “I’m like a Michelangelo painting that hangs in the vault/ They gated me off by Hendrix while he plays the guitar/ Never had friends but me and Franklin was dawgs/ Somewhere between insane and famous, guess my brain’s a lil’ off,” T.I. gave him a 4.
