T.I. is not happy with Kanye West’s meeting with Donald Trump on Thursday.
The rapper, 38, slammed Ye for what he calls a “new low,” and said he’s ready to “slap the f**k out of him for it.”
In a heated Instagram post, T.I. wrote, “This s**t is next level, futuristic Sambo, Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django ass s**t, Ye! From what I can gather… This is the most repulsive, disgraceful and embarrassing act of desperation and auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen.”
He later revealed that West invited him to his meeting with the U.S. President, to which, T.I. obviously declined, “You are a** kissing on a whole new level and I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak and inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of all our people!”

Now I’ve been extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about Ye’& his antics… Partially due to the lessons learned from the outcome of other similar situations dealing wit my brother Wayne (which I admittedly mishandled a bit in hindsight) But now this shit is next level,futuristic Sambo,Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django ass shit Ye!!!! From what I can gather… This is the most repulsive,disgraceful, Embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen. Now I recall you asking me to come with you to have this meeting and I declined (naturally)… but bro… if ain’time I would’ve been in there wit you and you behaved that spinelessly in my presence,I feel that I’d be compelled to slap de’Fuq outta you bro For the People!!! You ass kissing and boot licking on a whole new level &I refuse to associate myself with something so vile,weak,& inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!! I’m a true believer in “It ain’t what you do,it’s how you do it.” And this shit is regurgitating🤮! At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you… now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you. To all the people who follow Ye musically,socially, or even personally….who are confused, heartbroken, infuriated…. Let me make this clear… THIS SHIT AINT COOL!!! THIS IS A MOVE YE MADE FOR YE!!! THIS IS A PLAY TO PUT HIM IN A POSITION HE’D LIKE TO SEE HIMSELF IN…WE ARE NOT ON HIS MIND AS HE MAKES THESE COMMENTS AND DECISIONS. Don’t follow this puppet. Because as long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world,if to do so he must lose his soul. We just saw Mr.West’s Soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor. All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop,I’m officially DONE!!!! 🖕🏽Trump & His Lil Cookie Boy. #USorELSE✊🏽
While he’s worked with the “Famous” rapper before, T.I. promises it’ll never happen again: “At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you… now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you.”
On Saturday, T.I. released a one-minute music video clip promoting his new album Dime Trap. The contents of that promo are shocking. T.I. is depicted sitting in the oval office lighting a cigar with a match. In walks in a Melania Trump lookalike, who proceeds to strip off all her clothes and dance on the desk before being led away by the rapper.
Outraged by T.I.’s video, FLOTUS’ Director of Communications, Stephanie Grisham, tweeted to ET Canada calling the clip “disgusting,” “How is this acceptable?” she wrote.
Grisham later released a full statement elaborating on her tweet, “Like it or not, she is the First Lady and this is the White House. It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics.”
She continued, “These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country – it needs to stop.”
This isn’t the first time T.I. has gone after West’s political affiliations, in July he questioned West and his pro-Trump tweets to The Hollywood Reporter. “I wanted to pick his brain, get his thoughts, so I could have a better understanding of where he was coming from and what he was attempting to say,” he said.
At West’s meeting with Trump, he gave a lengthy 10-minute speech to the U.S. president about improvements in manufacturing, prison reform, preventing gang violence and reducing violence in Chicago.
