EXCLUSIVE: T.I.’s Instagram Rant About Lil Wayne Makes Things Awkward On ‘Growing Up Hip Hop’
Johnny Nunez

Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta is set to premiere Thursday (May 25), but we’ve got a sneak peek of the drama to come.

In this exclusive clip, Zonnique Pullins and Reginae Carter get caught in the middle of their parents’ beef after Zonnique’s stepdad, T.I., calls out Reginae’s dad, Lil Wayne, over his Black Lives Matter comments.

Back in November, Lil Wayne told Nightline’s Linsey Davis, “I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me. If You do, you crazy as s—t,” after the reporter asked the rapper about his feelings on Black Lives Matter and issues of racial injustice in America. 

T.I. later responded via Instagram, “Our relationship outside of music is what makes me sensitive to your disposition. I KNOW you[‘re] wired a bit different than most other responsible adults, but still n—a U TRIPPING!!!!”

@liltunechi This is my son & daughter showing me this for the first time & asking me what you mean? I'm at a complete loss of words here. Wayne I've known you over a decade. Our daughters grew up together practically. Reginae' spent countless times at my house with Niq-Niq when you were in prison & you extended my daughter the same courtesy when I was in the same position. Our relationship outside of music is what makes me sensitive to your disposition. I KNOW you wired a bit different than most other responsible adults, but still nigga U TRIPPING!!!! I don't know what you goin thru,or what you are attempting to avoid but this shit is absolutely unacceptable!!!! You're disrespecting yourself,bringing shame on your family name & tarnishing your legacy. You have children (including mines prior to now) that have looked up to you. You have sons & a daughter that depend upon your leadership. Bro if you don't stand for something out here,all the money,jewelry,cars,mansions bandannas & hit records don't mean shit!!!! Our people are being oppressed!!! We are being hunted,captured & slaughtered out here daily!!! You have to get outta that bubble that you've been living in & get out here & educate yourself on what's going on around US!!! I'm always here to share whatever knowledge or understanding I may have to assist your growth & development,but u MUST STOP this buffoonery & coonin' you out here doin. You looking like somebody who has something to gain or lose by pretending like it's not as bad as BLM making it seem & you're not aware of an issue that needs to be addressed. That's what would be considered "Uncle Tom Shit".... I know U,YOURE BETTER THAN THIS!!!!! I've been proud to call myself a fan & a friend of Lil Wayne ,but if that must end in order to stand up for those who can't do it for themselves...So be it. If you're not prepared for a question in an interview,say No Comment Bro. But stop embarrassing yourself & everyone out here who's been supporting you. There is no middle ground. Oppression knows no neutral party,either you're part of the oppressed,or you with the oppressor. There is no such thing as oppression not affecting you. It's #USorELSE out here

In the clip, viewers see Zonnique and Reginae dealing with the beef between their dads, with Zonnique reading her stepdad’s post out loud, specifically, the part where the two young ladies are mentioned.  

Reginae admits that she’s usually ready to clapback against her dad’s haters, but confesses, “For the respect I have for Zonnique and out friendship I’ll try not to say nothing.”

The clip ends with Zonnique wondering how the two of them even got dragged into the whole thing.
