T.I. Responds To Rudy Giuliani Criticism Of Beyonce: “Who Gives A F##k About What Guiliani Thinks Of Music”

(AllHipHop News) Beyonce’s epic MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) performance has angered former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Rudy, who was in office at the time of the 2001 terrorist attacks on the city, was offended by what he believed was the Formation singer’s 15 minute set’s anti-police theme.

During Sunday’s VMAs, which was held in the Big Apple, Beyonce performed a medley of songs from her acclaimed Lemonade album, closing with her black feminist anthem Formation.

Her set included a segment which featured her backup dancers falling to the ground one at a time under a pool of red light, symbolizing the death of black men and women at the hands of the police.

Giuliani was angered by the performance, saying he had done more to save the lives of young African-Americans by putting into place hardline policing policies.

“I saved more black lives than any of those people you saw on stage by reducing crime, and particularly homicide, by 75 percent – of which maybe 4,000 or 5,000 were African-American young people, who are all alive today because of the policies I put in effect that weren’t in effect for 35 years,” Giuliani told U.S. news show Fox & Friends.

Referring to Beyonce’s decision to depict the deaths in dance, the ex-politician angrily continued, “If you’re going to do that, then you also should symbolize why the police officers are in those neighborhoods, and what are you going to do about that? What are you doing about it?”

It is not the first time the former Mayor has criticized Beyonce for incorporating nods to African-American protest movements; in February (16) he slammed her Super Bowl halftime show performance containing similar imagery.

In addition to the political imagery in her VMAs stage performance, Beyonce also appeared on the red carpet with the mothers of three African-American men killed by police, and the mother of Trayvon Martin, who was shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in 2012.

T.I. had some choice words for the former Mayor of New York.

“Who gives a f##k” about what Rudy Giuliani thinks about music,” T.I. told a TMZ cameraman out in Beverly Hills. “He also imprisoned so many unnecessarily. you have to against the black lives he saved for the black lives he destroyed by imprisoning people too long, taking them away from their families and breaking up homes.”

    Rudy Giuliani criticizing Beyonce is just like Trump criticizing Colin Kaepernick for not standing for a song written 200 years ago by a slavetrader. They and other white people prefer their blacks to be non-threatening and not controversial. In other words,silent. Had they not expressed themselves, spoke out against the powers that be thereby making the beast uncomfortable, they’d have no problem with the conditions of this country. But now they want to discredit and speak out against those who they consider “troublemakers “. FOH.

        Well he was a slave owner who if you read up on him said he was a decent master. Bless his heart. And when his biography was released when that song turned 200,in the book it read,”Although he owned and traded slaves,deep down he detested slavery and fought in court free of charge for slaves’ freedom. So basically his slaves didn’t know whether to fluff his pillow or slice his throat at night when he slept.

      • Q.

        This country was built by and large through the blood, sweat, tears of the Native American and the Native African, via the exploits of white supremacists who ravaged foreign lands and staked claim to lands and entitled themselves to resources which didn’t belong to them, propagating the ideology of unlimited selfish acquisition for WHITE EMPOWERMENT ONLY, i.e. Manifest Destiny. Then they expect the Original Man and Woman to maintain the subservient status of Negro/secondary citizen/subservient subject of the incorporated State 150+ years after slavery, relegating the Black man to that of an entertaining buck beast, only to run, jump, throw, dunk, and catch to the delight and amusement of the public, empty-headed, obedient musclebound robot totally devoid of self-awareness, blindly pledging allegiance to what, exactly? The right to trick off their finances on cocaine and wh0res while their brothers and sisters are senselessly lynched in the streets by undercover neo-Nazis? Fvck these d!ckheads talking about, disrespecting the military? The Black man fought in EVERY damn war in American history to the benefit of whites! So-called Americans need a severe re-education on this nations history.

      • Markus

        Facts from start to finish. The beast still has that slave owner mentality when it comes to other races bending their backs and wills to them. Personally I find the word minority as offensive as the n word. Just another form of control like standing up and honoring the evil history of this country. They got me when I was a kid in school and didn’t know the real deal. Never again.

      • Q.

        ~90% of the planet is non-white. How can we be “minorities?” It’s brain-washing!

      • Casor_Greener

        So are all white people who owned slaves monsters from the past?

      • Markus

        What I’m saying is if you owned human beings against their will or if you did it out of the kindness of your hollow heart, buying and selling people was an evil practice. Let me ask you something: can you agree or disagree that a song made over 200 years ago was created solely for white people because back then they tortured, raped,mutilated, murdered and psychologically, verbally and physically abused people that didn’t look like them on a daily basis?

      • Casor_Greener

        I can agree to that, but many follow a God that wasn’t for “black people”

      • Markus

        God is immune to race gender or culture so where you got that He was specifically for one more than the other I have no idea. The point is if people of today don’t acknowledge that the original sins committed by the so called founders of this country still resonate even in the 21st century then a real conversation will never begin towards healing. Now I see here that you wrote to someone telling them to go back to Africa. Are you that guy that responds to intelligence by being dismissive?

      • Casor_Greener

        Not at all – I respond to the way that the message is conveyed. If I’m a restaurant and someone is complaining incessantly, I would ask why they continue to eat at the establishment. IF all you are going to do is cry about the ills the country has inflicted upon you, why on earth would you stay here? I’m not saying this country can’t be improved but that person was being ridiculous

      • Markus

        Then I would say to you in response that as a restaurant that is supposed to cater to all patrons,if someone does complain about service and that restaurant depends on patrons to thrive,then isn’t it in that restaurant’s best interest to listen to those complaints and see what can be done to better improve itself? See the first thing in being a better country is to not dismiss someone. Stop calling people wanting better service from the country they weren’t given a choice of being in complaining. It’s not complaints when people have been minimalized and have to catch up from 4 centuries of obstacles. It’s too easy living in the modern world to trivialize the effects of the history of this country. But it still exists in one way or another. And it’s insulting to just respond to African Americans with go back to a country they never knew thanks to the evil pioneers of yesteryear.

      • Casor_Greener

        I disagree completely. Someone screaming out “your restaurant sucks, i hate it here, and everyone who runs it” will be told to STFu and get out of my restaurant. An individual who says “I had a bad experience, here’s why, and what you can do to change it for next time” will be respected and appreciated.

        You are askIng for respect for those who are giving none. That I can not oblige you.

      • Markus

        But in the end as I’ve told you,it’s wrong to be dismissive. Even though I indulged your scenario,it’s utterly insane to compare a bad day at a restaurant with slavery. You speak about respect and appreciation from asking politely for the powers that be to be humane and fair in providing the same opportunities and avenues they’ve had and don’t criticize them for the evil they’ve done and continue to do. You say complaining when it’s actually speaking out against the tyranny of this hypocritical country that forces people into bond age then when they’ve finished with them want to discard them. That’s foul and evil.

      • Casor_Greener

        You’re speaking of tyranny and modern day slavery in America. That lets me know you aren’t interested in a real conversation. Ask people who exists under a true dictatorship feel about America’s “tyranny”.

        How do you propose America provide the same opportunities to all people. Such a thought is one of Utopia. A figment of ones imagination.

      • Markus

        If my comments indicate that to you, that’s a you problem. Because it’s clear to me that you have this idea that people aren’t oppressed even now although it may not be to the extremes that took place in the past.

      • Casor_Greener

        When did I say people weren’t oppressed? When did I say not to criticize people or this nation for past actions? As a matter of fact who even alive today is qualified to apologize for the ills of the past? Again I ask, how can this country ensure proper opportunity for all? You have no solution because one doesn’t exist. If my parents were rich , no one could ensure you have the same opportunity as me if you were poor. No laws can be passed to guarantee blacks, or anyone else for that matter, are given equal opportunity.

        My only point is that one must have a relevant, discernible, and attainable end goal in mind before beginning a struggle. What do you angry people want from America?

      • Casor_Greener

        The Judea-Christian “God” worshiped by most was unknown to blacks before slavery. Therefore that “God” was for “white people”. that is the same logic you used to deduce for that song being made for “white people” why abandon it now

      • Markus

        I know exactly what I said and the point I made was the song like the comment you’re making about the interpretation of God that people in that time worshipped were wrong. Nothing about America in in that time period was fair or righteous so I haven’t abandoned a thing.

      • Casor_Greener

        Please explain how my comment was wrong. What evidence suggest that blacks worshiped “God” before slavery.

      • Markus

        Africans believed in a higher spirit prior to having Christianity forced on them when they were kidnapped. Just like any culture, Africa possessed the basic building blocks of a society so I don’t know what you’re trying to say.

      • Casor_Greener

        I’m trying to say we can’t pick and choose what was “right” our slave masters gave us. If one is bad all of its bad. We can’t say “the song is wrong because slave masters wrote it” but then say “God is ok” despite the fact slave masters forced it upon hs

      • Casor_Greener

        Then why don’t you go back to Africa – assuming you are not already there

      • Q.

        LOL That’s the best you can do, dog? “Go back to Africa?” That’s so 1982!
        Why don’t you go back to the Caucasus Mountains? This isn’t your land. You’re an invader.

      • Markus

        See when I saw what dude wrote to you I knew I wasn’t going to tolerate his ignorance but for so long. With me I can have a conversation with anybody right up to when you stop being respectful and the racist starts to come out of you. So I blocked him. Not interested in conversing with slick talking bigots.

      • Q.

        You blocked son? LOL …I’m not gonna block him though. I like it better when these undercover house negroes/white supremacists just come out and be themselves, and quit hiding in the shadows pretending they’re down with Hip-Hop and Black culture. And they can’t debate effectively, because they have no knowledge to stand on, just rhetoric. Then get mad when you hit ’em with facts.

        P.S. Did he say… the white man gave Africans Judaeo-Chiristian God? Ignorance. Every major religion in the world came out of Africa. H3ll is he talking bout??

      • Q.

        3RD VERSE OF “THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER” by FRANCIS SCOTT KEY:

        “No refuge could save the hireling and slave
        From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
        And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
        O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

        …He’s talking about his delight in the deaths of British troops and Britain’s recruited runaway slaves killed in the Battle of Fort McHenry in 1814.
        Francis Scott Key wasn’t shyt!

      • Casor_Greener

        I asked was he a slave trader. Also I think you may be misinformed on what he meant by that verse. You should review it for yourself and not some propaganda site. Maybe german hessians are involved and what not but I could be wrong

      • Q.

        H3ll you mean, “propaganda?” I just gave you facts. Francis Scott Key was a slave owner. And that’s not really a secret. So was George Washington. So was Thomas Jefferson. It was the thing back then in case you haven’t heard. But if you feel the above is incorrect (it’s not) then feel free to do your own research and break down the verse with superior information. Good luck!

      • Casor_Greener

        I was actually just asking. Owning slaves does nothing to change my view of people from those times. I’m willing to bet you would have owned them to if possible.

      • Q.

        You sound ridiculous. Naturally assuming everyone else would be as wicked as your ancestors is cynical at best, a very fearful and insecure perspective. It’s the basis of white supremacy.

      • Q.

        Let me save you some trouble:

        1) “No refuge could save the hireling and slave…”

        i.e., There was no place for the hireling and slave to hide [from the American soldiers]. The “hirelings” were the self-freed Black slaves who were recruited by the British Army to fight against the Americans. These Black fighting units were called the Corps of Colonial Marines.

        2) “…From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave”

        i.e., This means the Black soldiers were running scared, to no avail, as death was imminent. FSK is taking pride in the death of the free Black men fighting against America.

        3)”And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
        O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

        You should be familiar with these lines. However, they read rather ironic, identifying American white men as “free” when there were ACTUAL free slaves who the American forces took victory over. Slave-holders identifying themselves as “free” and “brave” is hypocritical, but lies become truth when history is written by the victors!

      • Casor_Greener

        So he was singing for victory against the enemy? Isn’t that what all soldiers do?

      • Q.

        “Slave-holders identifying themselves as “free” and “brave” is
        hypocritical, but lies become truth when history is written by the
        victors.”

  2. Q.

    Rudy Fooliani can go choke on a cannoli. You irrelevant, dog. Drumpf took your spot!

    “OH SAY DOES THAT SCARRED, STRANGLED BANNER YET WAVE,
    O’ER THE LAND OF MISDEED, AND THE HOME OF THE SLAVE.”

  3. Lem

    How many Grammy’s does he have? Rudy tell us more about how you saved blacks from killing each other by locking them up. We won’t let them kill each other, we’ll just put them in a box with bars, let them workout and keep them from high blood pressure and diabetes, and let their baby mothers raise their son’s and daughters on their own so they can’t reproduce and pass us in numbers. Thanks Rudy… greatly appreciated. 🙏
