What would the Memorial Day Weekend be without a little Hip Hop beef? It's only right, and this year is no exception. Floyd “Money” Maywheather doesn't have another fight until September but he has however managed to score himself a tune up over the Memorial Day Weekend, Sunday morning in Las Vegas.
According to TMZ, verbal exchanges quickly turned into chairs and fists flying on Sunday.
It's being alleged that the brawl stemmed from a photo shared by T.I.'s wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, posing with Mayweather's daughter on Instagram, calling the young girl her “new boo,” TMZ reported.
A photo from Tameka “T.I.” Cottle ‘s Instagram account, “majorgirl,” shows the rapper with Floyd Mayweather's daughter: “Had to come celebrate with my new boo.”
T.I. felt disrespected, and somehow felt Floyd should be the one to answer for that as oppose to his wife. The brawl is caught on a few video clips, the first showing Floyd presumably shouting at T.I. “control your b***h motherfucker,” shortly after that a brawl broke out.
Mayweather Speaks On The Fight
Money May gave an exclusive interview to to the blog Necole Bitchie in which he explains the origins of the brawl we all witnessed.
“[T.I] came to me when I was in New York. He stepped to me when I was at the jewelery store like, ‘Yo, let’s go outside and talk.' We went outside to talk, but he talked about, basically, ‘These girls tryna play us against each other.' I said, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re talking about your wife?' I never put up a picture of her on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. I was basically like, ‘Listen. I’m letting you know I ain’t got…me and your wife don’t have nothing…if you think so.”
Things went from bad to worse last night after Mayweather's daughter's birthday party in Las Vegas:
“I throw my daughter [Iyanna] a big [14th] birthday bash today. I’m eating at Fatburger and next thing you know, he walk in talking about we need to talk again. And then I told him, ‘You need to get the f-ck outta my face. That’s what you better do.' And then he said, ‘I ain’t talking to all these people so you ain’t gotta talk loud.' I said, ‘Listen, don’t come to my face with no disrespectful sh-t. Like I told you before, you must’ve forgot what I did for a living.' He said, ‘You do in the ring, I do it in the streets.' I said, ‘My man, I do it everywhere. You can find out if you want to.' Just like that.
Then a couple of words exchange and people got to pushing and a riot kinda broke out. And then a bunch of chaos and that was basically it. Because, like I said before, he probably does some foolish things, but he ain’t no damn fool to swing on me. Like, you must’ve forgot what I do for a living. He had a totally different look on his face.”
Maywheather ended up apologizing to Tiny for the “Control your b***h” line, he followed up with that in the future, T.I. should “talk to her about that, don’t talk to me about that.”
I'm confused as to why T.I. figured this was Maywheather's issue and not his wife, why didn't he call her, text her, something? It's not like Tiny even made the comment on a photo she took with Floyd, she was referring to his daughter. How is this Floyd's problem?
I'm going to have to agree with Floyd on this one, control your b***h T.I.P.
T.I Also Responds To Fight
The Hustle Gang general took to his Instagram to dispel the rumors that he had received two blacks during the altercation.
50 Cent Pokes Fun At The Beef
Of course it's not beef until Instagram's most dangerous 50 Cent has something to say about it.
Fif is a clown.
This whole thing is pretty much Tiny's fault, these hoes ain't loyal.
