T.I. is READY for a Verzuz!
He called 50 Cent out last night (September 23) for the battle.
As reported on Hot New Hip Hop, 50 held a Black Mafia Family premiere in Atlanta. After the viewing, 50 put together a concert with various artists, including himself. T.I. performed and told Fif he’s waiting on him to accept the Verzuz challenge.
Trouble Man TIP said, “Hey 50, we got to do this Verzuz, man! Give them what the people want to see, man!” T.I. ended his set by showing love to the BMF cast. He said, “Congratulations to my nephew Lil Meech, congratulations to 50 for putting this shit together.”
50 didn’t respond to T.I. as of yet. We’ll keep you updated.
BMF premieres on Sunday, September 26. The series on Starz is based on the life and actual events of two brothers, Big Meech and Southwest T. They came from the troubling streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980s.
The Black Mafia Family is considered one of the most influential crime families who chased the American Dream; however, things happened along the way that disrupted their brotherhood. Big Meech’s son, Demetrius, also known as “Lil Meech,” made his acting debut and played his father. Grown-ish actor Da’Vinchi will play the role of BMF’s co-founder/Big Meech’s brother, Terry “Southwest T.”
The rapper Kash Doll also has a recurring role in the show. According to All Hip Hop, she’ll play Monique, and actor Russell Hornsby will star as the family’s patriarch, Charles Flenory. Eminem also has a role, and Snoop Dogg, Lil Zane, Mary J. Blige, and more.
Tasha Smith will direct the series, executive produced by Terri Koop and Anthony Wilson. G Unit Film and Television produced the film in association with Stars and Lion Gate. Will you be tuned in?
