T.I. hit the stage for another farewell concert this weekend but this time it was different. This show was held on Tip’s home turf, Club Crucial on Bankhead Donald Lee Hollowell and had a special surprise guest.
Nope…you eyes aren’t deceiving you! Shawty Lo joined T.I. onstage during his performance of “Big Thangs Poppin” and they both shook hands and finally squashed all the nonesense.
Dem Bankhead Boyz back together again!
Lo even took a moment to apologize to Tip’s boo, Tiny for all of the negative things he’s said about her. Is it me or does Lo strongly resemble Jeezy is this pic? On second look…Nah! I think it’s just my lack of nutrition today.

Bankhead Beef has taken another turn this week. After the Dirty Awards fights, Shawty Lo hit up VladTV with an exclusive interview, straight from D4L studios. Lo takes the opportunity to speak about Big Kuntry King’s recent threat to release some taped phone conversations between the two of them. During his talk, he mentions how Kuntry is just all mouth and that he shouldn’t even be talking cause he’s one of the “lames” on the label. Lo spoke almost highly of TIp in the video above, he also recently told MTV news that he don’t know where Tip’s head is….but he ain’t the one to be disrespected:
“[Me and Tip’s conversation] ended on a positive note with the conversation,” Lo said. “I don’t know where he is [with the beef]. I guess he just be talking. One thing about it, Shawty Lo ain’t no punk. T.I. is just a rapper. He knows how to read a book good. Where I live is for real. I ain’t got nothing against homes. He’s got family, I got family. I’m not trying to kill him, he’s not trying to kill me. I got fans that love me. He’s not not gonna run all over me. I ain’t Lil’ Flip.”
Ummm….Ok. So who’s fighting now. Can somebody draw up a diagram or something cause I’m getting confused.
The 2008 Dirty Awards were held in Atlanta last night and the event, although star-studded, was less than spectacular. The show, presented by Radio One’s Hot 107.9, ended up being a Hot “A”ss Mess as police had to break up fighting amongst some of the performers. Prior to the fighting, several Atlanta A-listers like Goodie Mob’s Big Gipp + Khujo Goodie, Monica, Soulja Boy, Gorilla Zoe and more were spotted glammed up for the red carpet:
Monica was rocking the red carpet as usual! You go girl 🙂
The event was marred by a fight that broke out presumably between Shawty Lo’s posse and T.I.’s clique. Shawty Lo performed and I’m told his ad libs took jabbs at T.I. and his crew. Once Yung LA and T.I. took the stage to perform “Ain’t I,” T.I.’s ending message didn’t sit well with some of Shawty Lo’s Bankhead crew in the audience and bottles and fists flew. I’ve heard that Alfamega had to be maced and that Big Kuntry was also subdued by police. More flix + Video footage of the debacle below *Updated with Better Footage*: Continue Reading…
Shawty Lo recently did a phone interview to declare that the beef between he and T.I. is officially over. In the interview, Lo, who just won a 2008 Ozone award for “Best Breakthrough Artist,” states that the beef has gotten old and people just want to hear good music. Well Duh! On question though…what’s gonna happen to all those unreleased diss tracks?? 😆
