Because according to Jay Bling, the DJ for the boxer’s Money Team, he was jumped by Tip and his entourage. Bling first mentioned the alleged attack on Instagram Stories, and he mocked the rapper for not doing more harm.
“T.I. jumped me Lol,” wrote Bling in a message that surfaced on Sunday. “All y’all n—as hit like straight bitches … 6 n—-s and all y’all did was scratch me up. N—– jumped the wrong one tonight. I’m on yo bumper b—- ass n—a @troubleman31.”
There’s also footage of Bling talking about being attacked as he exits BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood. You see T.I. standing with a group of men in the clip as well, plus, an L.A. County Sheriff’s deputy arrived.
“Motherf—ers” grabbed me,” said Bling in a torn shirt. “Five of these n—as jumped me. Hit me like a bitch, straight up.”
Later in the clip, around the 2:11 mark, Bling is seen nearly fighting with another man until an officer steps between them.
Most probably became aware of the beef between Mayweather and Tip in 2014 when they fought at a Fat Burger in Las Vegas, and T.I.’s wife Tiny seems to be the reason.
“I been knowing Tiny before T.I. I’ve never slept with her, I never kissed her, never touched her in no inappropriate way,” said Mayweather in 2014.
“I’m eating at Fatburger and next thing you know, he (T.I.) walk in talking about we need to talk again. I told him, ‘You need to get the f–k outta my face. That’s what you better do. Like I told you before, you must’ve forgot what I did for a living.’ He said, ‘You do in the ring, I do it in the streets.’ I said, ‘My man, I do it everywhere. You can find out if you want to.'”
Tip also got at Mayweather in February, around the time he called for a Gucci boycott, because the Italian brand made black sweaters that many thought looked like blackface. The boxer said he’d refuse to stop supporting Gucci, and T.I. responded with a diss song titled “F–K N—a.”
Mayweather hasn’t said anything about the alleged attack on his D.J., and Tip has also kept silent.
