Rapper Tip “T.I.” Harris wants a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T on his name.

This all started when the Grand Hustle mogul invited rapper 50 Cent to go toe to toe in a Verzuz battle, which has started the debate of which of the two had made a greater impact on the music industry.

T.I., a three-time Grammy winner, feels that his name should be on the same level as Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne.

During a recent interview on Big Boy’s Neighborhood morning show in L.A. T.I. said, All the names that people are saying, I don’t think people realize who I am. I don’t think y’all really know who I am. I don’t think y’all remember what I’ve done, bro. Just ‘cause I don’t jump up, step on tables, kick over tables, and demand you pay attention to me, that doesn’t mean [nothing]. Listen, man. You gon’ have to put mine up there.

He continued, When you talk about careers, legacies, and accomplishments, you gotta put me up there. You gotta go talk to Jay-Z. You gotta go talk to Kanye. You got to talk to Lil Wayne. If there wasn’t no ‘Swagger Like Us, my record, you know what I mean?
