(AllHipHop news) T.I. was the latest entertainer to take part in BET’s “Rate The Bars” digital series. Without knowing the author, the Atlanta native had to give his opinion on lyrics by Ludacris, Iggy Azalea, Young Dro, 2Pac, Jeezy, Trae Tha Truth, Boosie Badazz, and B.o.B.
After rating Luda’s “Southern Gangsta” 3/5, T.I. bashed lines from his own one-time protégé. “Switch” by Iggy earned a 2.5/5 because it just “rhymes and it’s talking about things.”
Fellow Hustle Gang affiliate Young Dro also received criticism from his label head. Tip said, “You can’t just throw around threats. There’s no real technique to it. I gotta give it a 2.”
T.I. was also asked to rate bars from one of his musical influences – Tupac Shakur. The “No Mediocre” performer was not impressed with the legend’s “Something Wicked” either.
“I give this a 1. I gave it a 1 because it’s ‘rat, cat, dog, fog, run, fun.’ I’m done,” offered Tip. When it came to his own record “Kingofdasouth,” T.I. gave himself a 3.5/5.
