T.I. has been more of a crisis manager than rapper lately and it’s all because of his mentee, Iggy Azalea.

After being blasted by Azealia Banks as a culture stealing wanna-be, Iggy clapped back by calling Banks a miserable bigot, amongst other things. That didn’t sit well with rapper Q-tip who tried to enlighten Azalea about the culture and history of hip hop.

In a lengthy Twitter diatribe, Q gave Iggy some food for thought stating:

“You have to take into account the HISTORY as you move underneath the banner of hiphop. As I said before, hiphop is fun it’s vile it’s dance it’s traditional it’s light hearted but 1 thing it can never detach itself from is being a SOCIO-Political movement.”

The conscious rapper went on to continue educating young Igs.

“Did u know that remnants of slavery exist today thru white privilege? When certain ‘niceties’ r extended your way because of how u look? Isn’t that crazy? I say this 2 say u are a hiphop artist who has the right 2 express herself however she wishes. This is not a chastisement this is not admonishment at ALL this is just one artist reaching to another hoping to spark insight into the field you r in. I say this in the spirit of a hopeful healthy dialogue that maybe one day we can continue.”

While the “Fancy” rapper never responded to Q-tip, her Hustle Gang boss did. In a twitter rant of his own, T.I. went toe-to-toe with a few of Tip’s statements. Click through the gallery below to see the tweets (read from the bottom up).

It’s no secret that Drake’s been on a giving spree while in Miami. From college kids to hotel workers and everyone in between, the rapper has been changing lives one dollar at a time — and now we can see it all in action.

Clearly, it was “God’s Plan” for Drizzy to take his entire budget for his music video and spend it on various residents and workers in Florida’s hot spot city. That’s right almost a million bucks — $996,631.90 to be exact — was slotted for Drake to shoot the visuals for his latest hit but instead he used all the money to make a difference. And in doing so, he made us cry … multiple times. Just watch the video below.

In a statement the self-professed “6god” said this video was “the most important thing” he’s ever done. We’d agree.
