A former entourage member of rap mogul Tip "T.I." Harris is reportedly using his former affiliation with Grand Hustle Records for nefarious reasons.
The man, whose Instagram.com user name is @Trencetatm, favors the rap tycoon. For this reason -- and due to his former affiliation with Grand Hustle Records -- he is successful at passing himself off as T.I.'s cousin around town.
T.I. addressed this issue in a PSA post on social media back in March:
Announcement…. Dis Nigga IS NOT HustleGang!!!!! No matter who he related to. He’s a snake & a thief. Beware… Hide ya tennis shoes & ya fitted caps. He’s a low level bottom feedin’Peasant!!!!!#Youvebeenwarned.
The man responded with a PSA of his own on social media:
PSA I HAVE NOT AN HAVE NEVER STOLEN ANYTHING FROM TIP!! !! SOMETHING GOT BACK TO HIM STATING I WANTED TO ROB OR TAKE SOME FROM HIM!!! BUT AGAIN I HAVE NEVER TOOK OR RECENTLY TAKING ANYTHING FROM HIM!! IM NOT RUNING OR ANYTHING WHATEVA SOMEBODY TOLD HIM THAT’S WHAT HE WENT OFF!!
But, according to a source at Phipps Plaza, the hustler was back to his old tricks this past weekend.
According to a source who is very familiar with the ongoing situation, this man is no relation to T.I., nor is he affiliated in any way with Grand Hustle Records.
