T.I. isn’t mincing words on his new song “F— Em.”
The track comes after news broke that neither the rapper (né Clifford Joseph Harris Jr.) nor his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, will face charges stemming from a 2005 incident involving a woman who alleged that the couple drugged and sexually assaulted her in Los Angeles. Charges cannot be made because the statute of limitations expired after 10 years, according to court documents obtained by Billboard.
In the song, T.I. raps, “Listen, lying ass h-, better shut that/ Upset ’cause they ass ain’t up yet/ Listen, I ain’t never gave no f— about a b—h/ If i did, h-, give my f— back/ Listen, I never gave a f— about them/ Pretty h–s stay in my DM.”
He later says, “On my life, me and my wife run this city/ Can’t snatch these stripes, we don’t care what they talking about, f— them lies.”
In a statement issued to Billboard by T.I. and Tiny’s attorney, Shawn Holley, regarding the couple’s recent legal outcome, the lawyer said, “Mr. and Mrs. Harris are pleased, but not surprised, by the District Attorney’s decision to dismiss these meritless allegations. We appreciate the DA’s careful review of the case and are grateful to be able to put the matter behind us and move on.”
Last year, a second woman accused T.I. and Tiny of sexually assaulting her in Las Vegas in 2010. Her case was declined due to the statute of limitations.
T.I. has since denied the allegations against himself and Tiny. In a recent podcast interview with Big Facts Live, he said, “Why, all of a sudden, after all of these many years of service to the community, decades of integrity and showing people who I am… I just become a creep to people. I ain’t bullsh–ting, bruh. Motherf—ers just want me to be a creep so f—ing bad. Like, my n—a, where that come from?”
