The story goes that the rapper and a friend were driving back to his place at around 4:00am on Thursday (May 17) morning. But, Tip forgot his keys in his house. When they approached the security guard, who T.I. says was sleeping, he wasn't letting them in. The artist had to call his wife, Tiny, to speak to him. However, the guard got upset when the R&B singer spoke to him aggressively. That's when the guard allegedly said, "Who the f*** do you think you is talking to me like this?"
That's the tick that got T.I. very upset. He started shouting back explicits to the guard, before he eventually let the rapper in. However, after Tip reached his home, he turned back around to get the guard's name. The star was arrested not too long afterward for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.
At the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, T.I. presented the award for Top Rap Song to Post Malone featuring 21 Savage's "Rockstar." Before he announced who won the trophy, Tip poked some fun at his recent arrest. "Good thing they let me in here tonight," he said to the crowd, referencing the difficulty he had getting into his gated community. See the moment below.
