Being a celebrity has it's pros and cons. The pros are...well, pretty much everything. And the main con is that you don't get a whole lotta privacy. T.I. experienced that firsthand on Thursday morning as he pumped gas at an Atlanta gas station.
The 36-year-old rapper became a bit overwhelmed as a bunch of excited fans approached him.
“Real ni—as pull up in the hood where they from,” says the woman taking a video. As she continues to take the footage, an overzealous male fan leans up against Tip's truck and takes a series of selfies with him.
T.I. obviously did not like it.
“How many goddamn selfies you gon’ take? You a grown ass man." T.I. said. “I ain’t playing no games n—ga, I’m kicking some real n—ga shit. You standing all close to me, leaning on my truck and shit. You getting way too close and I don’t know you like that."
While the energy is playful at first, it gets hostile by the second video. But then, everything is cool at the end as T.I. takes a photo with the fan.
While we understand the fans and their excitement, it's important to remember that celebrities are people too. Luckily, it ended up being a win-win situation. The fans got their selfies and Tip got his space.
