Rapper T.I.

T.I.cked Off Hip Hop

Was Dragged Into Boston

EXCLUSIVE

0419-TI-hip-hop-tmz
T.I.
is pissed ... telling TMZ he has no connection to the hip hop website frequented by dead Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev ... a site that prominently featured the rapper's mug.

T.I. had no idea his pictures were posted -- he'd never even HEARD of Real-HipHop.com -- and he's upset that the hip hop genre is now connected to the bombers.

"Hip hop narrates the activity and conditions of our culture," he tells us. "It doesn't create them."

T.I. is frustrated: "Hip hop ain't never been about hurting innocent people," T.I. said. He feels Boston "was a horrible tragedy and my prayers go out to the families involved."

Exactly T.I....but *******s think hip hop is rap and they have a hard time differentiating between the two.

Rap is garbage. Hip-hop is spoken word.

Oh FFS, get over it. It was only pointed out that he liked rap to highlight that he wasn't exactly "holy" since his religion was an issue. People are struggling for answers and want to know details - It's not about YOU.

They also boxed, wrestled, played soccer and breathed oxygen. None of which have anything to do with bombing innocent people.

It seems to me as if T.I. is doing a bit of cashing in. I'm sure these guys hit a whole bunch of websites and you don't see the rest of them coming out of the woodwork proclaiming anything. Go back to whatever cage you belong in T.I. you got nothin'.

I'm not a hip hop or rap listener, but the music has nothing to do w/ this tragedy. These idiots were operating with their own agenda of hate and intolerance.
