Atlanta rappers T.I. and Shawty Lo have waged a public beef the last few months, exchanging words on the radio and on wax. Now, the feuding emcees will be sharing a stage together in an upcoming Birthday Bash concert for Atlanta's Hot 107.9.
As SOHH previously reported, Lo took issue with Tip for failing to acknowledge him as a Bankhead-bred rapper. On his song "Dunn Dunn" Shawty took some shots at T.I., and the self-professed King of the South fired back on Atlanta radio station 92Q. [Listen here]
"Come on dog," T.I. said. "Who are you for real to be acknowledging like that? Get in the game first."
Then Shawty Lo shot back on DJ Kay Slay's radio show, saying T.I wasn't even really from Bankhead, the hood he's claimed throughout his career. [Listen here]
The rappers are both on the bill to perform at Hot 107.9's 13th Annual Birthday Bash at the Phillip's Arena in Atlanta on June 14.
Branded PR is handling the publicity for the event and confirmed the two rappers will be performing, but according to Tahira Wright, they're not anticipating any problems with the line up.
"I'm not one to perpetuate beef but T.I. and Shawty Lo are indeed scheduled to perform," Wright wrote in an email to SOHH. "However, I'm not aware of any heightened security measures. The Philips Arena is very secure as is."
Other confirmed performers are Young Jeezy, Plies, Soulja Boy and Webbie, with others to be added.
Tickets for the bash are on sale for about $10 to $100. You can purchase them here.
