Rapper T.I. has found plenty of success with his VH1 reality show “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle” and managed to show the world a different and more family oriented side to him, but the change in his image wasn’t so well received by his former record label Atlantic Records. In fact, the rapper confirmed in a recent interview with XXL Magazine that the label expressed it wasn’t thrilled he went from being hardcore to a modern-day Bill Cosby, and it’s one of the reasons T.I. feels the label didn’t have any interest in keeping him on the roster. Despite the fallout with Atlantic Records, T.I. says he’s happy he’s grown as a person, and he’s looking for a new label home more accepting of the change or he’ll just go independent. Interestingly enough, some people took to Twitter the other night and suggested the rapper may have slipped back into his old ways as some DC club goers are claiming the rapper allegedly pulled a knife out on someone in the club who appeared to have some beef. T.I. and Lil Wayne are currently on the America’s Most Wanted Tour together. Bossip reports:
According to BOSSIP eyewitnesses at the club the rapper allegedly pulled a knife after being challenged by a club patron.
“We were at Park and apparently T.I. pulled a knife on some dudes that got too close in the club,” a source told BOSSIP. “I don’t know if he has security, but I saw a bunch of bouncers running downstairs and knew it was time to go. People told me he pulled out a knife in the open.”
So far nothing has been reported by mainstream media, but a few tweets corroborate our source’s story.
The rapper’s camp hasn’t commented as of yet on the alleged incident.
