With the country still embroiled in social and political fallout from George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the Florida slaying of Trayvon Martin, Atlanta rapper T.I. did not mince words when asked about his response to the verdict.
“Man, it was some bulls**t,” said T.I. during an exclusive interview with Power 98 “Morning Maddhouse” DJ No Limit Larry. Larry caught up with the rapper backstage at the station’s Summerfest 2013 concert, which hosted Lil Wayne’s “America’s Most Wanted” tour featuring T.I. and 2 Chainz when it touched down in Charlotte, NC.
“My hat goes off to the Martin family, because if it was me and my child, there wouldn’t have been no trial,” T.I. continued. “I’d have been on trial. It would’ve been the trial of the father who killed the man who killed [his child]. That would have been my story. My hat goes off because [the Martin family] are much more clear and level-headed thinkers than [myself].”
