The “What You Know” rapper hopped over to social media on Monday, Sept. 21, with a video that shows him practicing his boxing skills with his trainer at an Atlanta gym. He came ready to spar in a white T-shirt, a pair of khaki sweatpants and sneakers.
With boxing gloves on, T.I. threw his left hook followed by a right jab.
“Cardio & Combos Just burnin fat…I can’t fight fareal… Please don’t try me #OldAndSlow,” the Atlanta native wrote.
His followers apparently expected him to be quicker with his hands and clowned his boxing skills.
One fan quoted a verse from his song “What You Know” and quipped, “you fast as lightning bruh ? Should I get my nikes bruh ? .”
Someone else said, “Needa tighten up dat last punch u threw OG.”
“Look like he about to tell a story after every combo,” one person commented, before mentioning T.I.’s 2014 brawl with boxer Floyd Mayweather. “And how did you beat Mayweather ? ”
One IG user said, “Idk king that last jab gave me windmill slapping vibes … . Aye tip that right hand at the end ain’t it but much respect.”
In a February interview on DJ EFN‘s “Drink Champs” podcast, the heavy weightchampion addressed the incident and said, “I just tell men like this: If you feel like your woman is a trophy, she should be at home on the shelf, period. Trophies sit on the shelf,” said Mayweather. “Everybody know if you violate, I’m going to demonstrate. I’m a man first and I stand on what I believe in.”
The Grand Hustle Boss seemed to respond to Mayweather’s interview in an alluding Instagram message. T.I. wrote, “Money can’t hide da sucka in you.”
