Hip Hop Week In Review: T.I., Tiny, Nicki Minaj

T.I. and Tiny continue their public feud with Floyd Mayweather while Nicki Minaj poses for "Anaconda" in a bra, g-string and Jordans.

T.I. and Tiny ruled the headlines this week with two stories in the Top 3. Their ongoing dispute with boxer Floyd Mayweather continued this week as new comments were made by all parties. Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj made headlines for herself when the rapper-singer-actress released the revealing cover art for her upcoming single, "Anaconda." 

T.I., Tiny Respond To Floyd Mayweather

Following reported comments made by Floyd Mayweather about allegedly having sex with Tiny, T.I. and his wife addressed the matter

"I hope he is enjoying himself,” T.I. said. "God bless him.” 

Tiny said she never engaged in sex acts with Mayweather and that he was upset she rebuffed him at a recent red carpet event. 

They were responding to reports that Mayweather said he was having sex with Tiny. However, Mayweather said he was misunderstood and that his comments were misreported. The boxer posted the following message on Instagram: 

“… [T.I.] thinks I was f*cking his b*tch”. I DID NOT say “… I was f*cking his b*tch”. I've never been with Tiny sexually. I respect her situation and I thinks she's a good person. I would never disrespect a marriage. #Mayhem on September 13th.”
