Tip teams up with Kevin Gates on New Single ‘Active’
T.I. releases new track featuring Kevin Gates ‘Active’
T.I. has addressed Boosie Badazz and his snitch allegations on his new song “Active” featuring Kevin Gates.
The track, which was premiered by DJ Greg Street on Atlanta’s V-103 radio station earlier this week, will reportedly appear on T.I.’s soon to come project “Kill the King”, which is likely to be his final 12th album.
(“I’ve been king 21 years”) while seemingly referencing his recent beef with Boosie Badazz, who called him a “rat.”
“You started yellin’, started tellin’/ But on IG, you hard as hellin’/ I’ma tell you somethin’ serious/ Come in here tryna boost ya career and commandeer/ I’ma commandeer the situation, treat him like a hunting deer in the frontier, T.I. raps.
His verse continues: “Listen, I’ve been King 21 years, took losses, never shed one tear/ That’s ’cause even when the future unclear, confidence, I always had a ton up here.”

T.I. is seemingly getting back at Boosie by collaborating with Gates. In case you might not be familiar, the two Baton Rouge natives’ Boosie and Gates feud dates back to 2009 after the murder of late rival, Nussie, who Gates was affiliated with (and where Boosie was found not guilty after being accused of ordering a hit on the rapper). Tensions eventually boiled over between both of the rappers’ camps in 2016 when a fight broke out between them at the Derby Takeover Pt. 2 in Louisville, KY.
