Most recently, one of T.I.’s old rivals, Houston rapper Lil’ Flip, said that he would want to go against the Atlanta legend, but only for a sizable bag.
“At first my number was, like, $3 [million,] and then it was a million, but now after I got a chance to go be on the Verzuz set in person and have fun, anything around the $500K mark is cool because I had so much fun,” Flip said on Vlad TV in the clip above. The Houston rapper later added, “When you’re Flip Mayweather, you don’t pick your opponents. Put them in front of me and I’ll handle my business.”
Last year around this time, Flip said on the Donnie Houston podcast that he was inspired to compete in Verzuz after watching Gucci Mane and Jeezy go against each other, and that he would want to take part in something big like that for the culture.
“That was historic, shout out to Jeezy and Gucci, man. That was big for the culture,” the Houston vet said. “A lot of people ask that. I don’t know. It’s possible, but if Verzuz want me to do something, man, Imma need a real, real big bag, ’cause somebody makin’ some money off of that. Somebody gettin’ some money. You know what I mean? But uh, yeah, it’s possible. It’s gon’ take a real nice bag.”
On that same note, Flip went on to tell Vlad TV that he doesn’t have to go against T.I. specifically and that he’s not looking for opponents. Rather, like he said last year, he believes that he is a hot commodity that should attract competitors because of his dense catalog.
Tip has yet to reply to Flip’s challenge.
