Rapper T.I has slammed Floyd Mayweather over his recent comment about the boycott Gucci call which many have heeded to. In a new diss track, T.I labeled the lightweight boxer a f**k n**ga for going on a Gucci shopping spree despite the designer allegedly racially abusing blacks.
Gucci received lots of backlash after it released a sweater which reminded many of the Blackface racist caricature. Despite issuing an apology, the black community still feels offended and have called for a boycott of the designer’s product.
However, Floyd Mayweather isn’t joining the train. On his way to a Gucci store to shop with his crew, he was asked how he felt about the boycott.
“I’m not no follower, I do what the f*ck I wanna do. You know when everyboy else they say, ‘Everybody gonna boycott?’ I say guess what, this boy gonna get on a yacht and live life.
“We all know racism still exists but that’s not gonna stop my drive. I’ve got friends from all walks of life and to me of course, black lives matter first … but my thing is this, I’m gonna continue to go out there live life and be happy, he said.
Responding to the boxer’s words T.I who has a beef with him rekindled it by releasing a diss track with the following rhymes.
“Old greedy ass n***a only thinking about his self … he get the fame, he get the wealth … ya, people are struggling, who did you help?”
Responding to the attack, Floyd Mayweather wrote.
“These people are playing hopscotch. First, they’re supposedly boycotting the NFL but as soon as the Super Bowl cam around, they were either at the game, watching it on TV or throwing Super Bowl parties. Last week,it was R. Kelly, this week it’s Gucci. People boycott for trend but turn around and still shop at H&M and watch the NFL.”
