T.I. Clarifies Kanye’s Rant On The 13th Amendment

Published

on

 

T.I. has been the voice of reason for Kanye in 2018.

The Atlanta artist appeared on “Ye vs The People”, confronting Yeezy on his stance on Trump and controversial statements on slavery being a choice.

Now, T.I. is back at it dissecting Kanye’s post to abolish the 13th amendment.

“While I disagree with most of the shit that Kanye says and his rants, I must say that the part about trying to amend or abolish the 13th amendment I actually agreed with. And not because I think that slavery should be instilled. No, because the 13th amendment says that slavery should be abolished unless in prison.”

He hints at the prisons that exploit prisoners’ labor for jobs that don’t benefit the citizen’s tax dollar, but rather garner profit for the private companies that own the prisons.

“I do see where he was going. I think it was horribly worded. And I think if you’re not careful, you can get carried off into the bullshit. Now I know how I mean it when I say it. I hope he means it the same way.”

Drake Wins Lawsuit Over Woman’s False Rape And Pregnancy Claims

Drake has won his lawsuit with the woman that made false pregnancy and rape allegations against him in 2017. Layla Lace met Drake during last year’s Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester, England, where he claimed they had consensual sex.

According to TMZ, Drizzy won his case and Lace is prohibited from using media to assert the claims. Manchester police also investigated, once Lace made the claims and could not find any evidence.

Drake claimed that when he stopped responding to subsequent messages, she allegedly began threatening to leak their correspondence, publicly claimed he had impregnated her, accused him of rape, and demanded “millions of dollars” in exchange for silence. Drake is reportedly suing for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.

The suit claimed Layla refused to take a paternity test and Layla and her lawyer went radio silent. Drake says the whole thing was a scam … “There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall.”

Celebrity attorney Larry Stein, who’s repping Drake, tells TMZ … “The filing made by Drake against Layla Lace has been resolved, with Layla avoiding going to trial by agreeing to a stipulated judgment which prohibits her from repeating past statements she made against Drake.  Drake and his team are satisfied with this outcome and while Drake appreciates the support he has received, he asks that his fans and the media allow both parties to move on with their lives”
