There’s room for everyone to shine.

Comedian Godfrey and rapper T.I. share an exchange over the weekend as the two both performed at the same comedy club in Atlanta. Godfrey, who was the headline of the show, apparently wasn’t too happy that T.I. closed out the show instead of him. “As a headliner, no one is supposed to go up after you,” said Godfrey on an episode of his In Godfrey We Trust podcast.

He added, “There’s a code in comedy that I follow. I’m not watching what you can’t do better than me. You’re not a comedian to me.”

T.I. caught wind of the comments and replied to Godfrey via Instagram live. “What God got for you is yours. Can’t nobody take that from you. Okay?” stated Tip. “All of a sudden because I’m now standing on a stage sharing my gifts with the world, utilizing the tools and the skills that I’m developing, you feel like that’s in your way some kind of way. And that’s more your problem than I could ever be.”

“I see [Godfrey] as a giant in the comedy sh*t. And what I saw in his was – I saw a legend trying not to hate while hating. Like innuendos, little tidbits of hate here and there while surrounding it with some compliments to make it seem like you ain’t hating,” T.I. explains. “To be honest with you, to me, that made a giant look small in my eyes.”
