“T.I. literally punched in the face,” Drew Taggart said in a clip that shows the duo performing at a nightclub alongside T.I. and others. “We’re in a vibe and I, like, gave him a kiss on the cheek. It was totally my fault.” His bandmate Alex Pall can be heard laughing in the background as Taggart breaks down what happened.
“He was like, ‘Don’t do that.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ He pushed me off and I was like, ‘Alright, my bad,’” he said, with Pall adding that a member of T.I.’s crew approached him and said “you need to get your boy.” Taggart said T.I. “punched” him in the face, and he told the rapper he was “sorry” for the incident. “He was like, ‘Alright cool, we’re good.’ It was the weirdest interaction ever,” he added.
“First of all, T.I.’s fully in the right here. I was feeling the vibes way too hard and I kissed T.I. on the cheek. And he punched me in the face for it! It’s like, fully fine,” Taggart concluded.
My bad T.I. won’t happen again… unless?♬ original sound – The Chainsmokers
T.I. eventually responded to the clip, saying there’s “not much more to the story.”
The rapper added that after the incident he and The Chainsmokers had a drink and “moved on.” He also said he loves their music and invited them to join him on his platform expediTIously.
