Back in 2003 when Tip started to call himself the "King of The South," Lil' Flip rejected that claim. In 2004, T.I. was in jail for violating the terms of his probation that stemmed from a 1998 conviction for violating a state controlled substances act and for giving false information. A beef began to brew over the next couple of months as the two Southern rappers traded shots at one another on their respective songs and mixtapes.
The beef came to a boil when Tip went on Houston radio station 97.9 and dissed Flip over the air, plus stated that he's coming to Flip's Cloverland neighborhood to shoot a video exposing Flip as a fraud. T.I.'s crew and Lil' Flip's crew confronted each other at a detail shop near Cloverburger and a fight ensued. T.I. would later go on the radio and say that he recorded the whole incident and will release it with his next mixtape.
