Rapper T.I. was still firmly on Team Kanye, but that ended Thursday with the latter’s much-publicized trip to the White House.
In a lengthy post on Instagram, T.I. said he’s been “extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about” West and “his antics,” but said West’s meeting with the president was something of a last straw.
“This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen,” he wrote. T.I. claims West invited him to accompany him to the White House, but he declined the offer. His post indicates he has no regrets about that decision.
“I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak, & inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!!” T.I. wrote. “At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you… now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you.”
