Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris debated conservative commentator Candace Owens during a panel at Sean Combs' Revolt Summit in Atlanta over the weekend.

Many say the 39-year-old rapper, was unnecessarily rude to Owens who is a Republican and staunch supporter of President Donald Trump.

During one tense exchange, T.I. questioned President's Trump infamous campaign slogan "Make America Great Again."

"When you say Make America Great Again, which period are we talking about? The period when women couldn't vote? The period when we were hanging from trees? The crack era? Which period in America are you trying to make great again?!"

Owens' response was cut short by the mostly Democratic crowd.

T.I. pressed Owens to respond: "Which period was America great that we're trying to replicate? Which era was it? Tell me!"

Through the boos, Owens said, "Here's the thing that you guys are forgetting: slavery was all over the world."

Her response brought even more boos from the packed audience.

"I can't answer the question if you're just gonna boo when I say slavery was all over the world, which is a fact. Why are you booing a fact?" she said.

"I wanna like you so bad, because you’re so smart," said T.I. in a condescending tone.

When Owens said she couldn't get her response in, T.I. responded, "You started with some bulls***!" which drew an even bigger reaction from the audience.

Owens checked T.I. for inciting the crowd to score "gotcha moments” for social media.

"I said I don't like when you go for gotcha moments, like when you're like 'Oh you started with some bulls***.' …When you're trying to just fight people, we all lose when you do something like that. Everybody loses when you go for a gotcha. I know how… if you wanna hype a crowd 'Oh it’s bulls***! It's racism! Get on your feet! F*** this! We gotta do our s***!'"

Afterwards, T.I. posed with Owens for photos. But it is obvious from her body language that Owens doesn't think much of T.I.

Many observers say Owens got the best of T.I., while others say the rapper "destroyed" Owens during the debate.

Watch the video and draw your own conclusions about who "won" the debate.
 

  • Fire & Ice

    Knowing this is not my crowd, I wouldn't have come if I were her.

  • Judi Jupiter

    She sounded dumb as hell.. Glad she has her own opinions, though.

  • UallrFOOLS

    Killer Mike had the best response for both of them.

    "We're watching free people argue over who got the best massa!"

  • UallrFOOLS

    I thought it was healthy dialogue. Much better than cable news one sided propaganda.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Conservative

    She's just a f@cking bed wench! Dumb as hell.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    All she does is recycle conservative talking points.

  • ALLMINE?

    It was far from a healthy dialogue

  • ALLMINE?

    And? Like her points were lies..???

  • Karen Brady

    Haven't watched yet but my fam told me Killa Mike KILLED it. Not surprised. Is Jeff Johnson the moderator?

  • KneeSee

    I'm not a fan, but I was interested in hearing what she had to say. I don't like to see men not let women speak period.

  • Nathan Hastings

    He's ignorant

  • Ni Ni

    I got no dog in this fight, but if I'm having a discussion with someone, i want to hear them out. I guess T.I. couldn't remember those big words when needed and had to start cursing.

  • UallrFOOLS

    I respect you opinion, however, I saw the emergence of a possible independent black coalition or at least dialogue that was not controlled by white liberals nor white conservatives.

  • ALLMINE?

    I agree

  • xxxgracious

    T.I. is use to women like Tiny who don't argue with him and just goes with the flow..

  • Fire & Ice

    I've only seen the clips of TI going at her. I have to watch the entire thing later

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    So by rapping about trapping and curating a trap museum, is that making America great? I love Candace, she’s a pit bull, however I do not think America has been great for blacks in general. Back to TI over talking and asking rhetorical questions does nothing, bully!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'd watch it, if only just to see TI doing his thing, using a bunch of big words incorrectly.?

  • Facts and Receipts

    Fukk Candace. I cannot stand her.

    And other folks were talking over Candace too from that clip. NOT JUST CLIFFORD.

  • Mrs. Davis804

    None of these people are qualified to speak for ADOS. Not in lineage, or historical or economic knowledge. And in the off chance they are qualified in lineage, they've been compromised and hired as social engineers or provacateurs to enrich the dominant society at the expense of the people they claim to speak for.

  • Facts and Receipts

    At 40 minute mark. Its not just TI. I see alot of folks didnt watch.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    And I can NOT STAND HIM!!!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    TI placed that ass.

  • Vegas1989

    I haven't watched it yet but what new Big Word did T. I use? LOL..Please let me know....LOL

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    TI is just a HERB! He will jump on any platform that gives him a mic. NOT A DAYUM THING he says will I EVER listen too... GO TO HELL CLIFFORD!

  • Carrington

    I be trying to take "conscious" TIP seriously... my heart won't release the spirit of foolery, though. Every time I look at him in his "conscious" hat, I immediately think about Damon Wayans' "woke" character from "In Living Color" who was trying real real hard, but used all the wrong words to prove his intellect.

    Every time I see TIP trying to be smart, I immediately hear Cholly Brown's teacher over his real voice and start hearing, "See... the projection of the matter is that the undouching of society has re-pacted the black community in a meritorious and electoral way. As a people, we have to climatize and regurgitate so that the ludicrous of our children can be asphyxiate."

    Good music, though.

  • Carrington

    Exactly. Conservatives put ignorant folk like her and Paris Dennard and Diamond & Gabberdine on front street because they use them as "exhibit A" that, "even BLACK people believe that black people should do better for themselves and stop "pretending" that institutionalized racism is real" and then go behind her back and sniggle at the fact that she really believes she's one of them.

  • ola57

    What a shame.. Owens need to know her history... Slavery was not all over the world..thank you T.I . I hope she get her facts straight

  • Harley

    I thi

    nk the most important speaker was Killer Mike! WHY NOT POST HIS 6 MINUTE SPEECH. Where he spoke knowledge and a solution. I urge everyone to see what he said!!

    This seems to be being a bit divisive especially when Killer Mike had a valid plan, valid answers and solutions. Why show these two coins? Oh for click and bait

  • Harley

    Please see Killer Mikes response to them both

  • Harley

    Check out killer mikes response that make complete sense

  • Harley

    Please Please see Killer Mikes response to them both

  • Harley

    Watch for killer mikes response

  • Harley

    Killer mike is the one you need to hear at this summit and his response

  • Harley

    YES! But of course it wasn’t posted here because he spoke actual facts and solutions

  • Harley

    Killer mike killed it and had valid responses to them both

  • Ryan

    Thanks, gotta find his speech.

  • Harley

    SANDRA CAN YOU POST KILLER MIKES RESPONSE TO THESE TWO?????????? The one who made actual valid points<

    code>

  • Reina1718

    What did he say?

  • Ryan

    When she said slavery was all over the world, was she trying to normalize it? And please don't try to go there with the crowds being rude cause those uncivilized MAGA roaches yell and punch people at rallies.

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    Same.. It's wrong, but same ???

  • Mrs. Davis804

    Mike not fighting to have, on a black platform mind you, ADOS thoroughly represented, even after speaking with them, speaks volumes. Candace's handlers made sure she was there, as unnecessary as she is. These people are playing around on purpose when it comes to these topics. This is why there can be no solidarity, especially if the speaker has financial/political ties that bridle their tongue.

  • cpatterson_22

    Why do people keep trying to make Candace Owens a thing. She says nothing of value, her only card is mocking, belittling, degrading and disregarding any and every thing black people have gone through in this country. STOP GIVING THIS WOMAN A PLATFORM TO LIE.

  • bemetoo

    Candace wasn’t ready... killer Mike had to answer the question

  • Fire & Ice

    I heard Mike came with it!

  • Dowoop

    So based on the comments I gather we should be looking at Killer Mike's response?

  • Elevated Soul

    Love Candace but girl do not waste your time trying to inform Black ignants....These types of things will always end in a room full of uninformed Blacks clapping for the idiot they have chosen to be their leader. Black ignants are not receptive to anything that calls for them to think logically.....

    I agree with TI as it pertain to slavery not needing to be glossed over and it shouldn't be but Candace is not ADOS.....As it pertain to slavery,no doubt that affected the mentality of slaves and that mentality has been passed on for generations unfortunately. The physical chains have been removed but the mental chains still remain and those are the chains that are keeping Black people down.Many Black people refuse to let go of those chains and that makes you a "prisoner in your own mind" and prisoners don't want anyone to escape the prison that they wallow in.

    When it comes to politics,you have to be a critical thinker who works with facts. TI is a 9 time felon who can't even vote. The problem with Black democrats is that they feel they speak for all Black people. They also feel they define Black people and when you don't agree,these same ignants will "disown you as if they actually own you in the first place"....

    Shout-Out to my Black people who are working with a critical thought process.....

  • The REAL Cheese eggs

    Sorry, but what/who is ADOS

  • rockstar2142

    Right! I just don’t get it.

  • rockstar2142

    No she is

  • Elevated Soul

    You need to learn some history slavery was all over the world BUT I will say this: NO SLAVES were treated as badly as the slaves brought from Africa to America. The ones that didn't jump in the ocean with the sharks to escape being a slave were beaten/hung/pulled apart/babies cut out the stomach/murdered and this went for all ages.On top of all that we lost our original names/original language and our real essence.

    The next question that should be asked is: Where did the slaves flee from?

  • morenadelsur

    Yes they’ve actually beaten people up! LOL damn shame.

  • Mrs. Davis804

    Ados101.com, research is key.

  • chan chan

    Most of the ppl on the panel wasn’t ADOS so I don’t care. They can fight amongst each other, it’s non of my business.

    The holocaust was a prime example of slavery. Whenever, you are caged and your freedom is taken away along with your family members because of your religion or race and held captive by the oppressor it is a form of slavery. These individuals tried to escape just like Black slaves did, but ended up being captured or met with death. Other examples of slavery the Rwandan genocide, Armenian genocide, India slavery, etc. The list of slavery around the world is countless.

  • Dun Dilly

    I really like Candace y'all. I do think she fearlessly walk into a den of IGNORANCE. No one needs to debate T.I. on anything. He doesn't even respect his own wife.

  • Starburst

    ? in agreement! Well stated.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    ????? You got it bruh.

  • Banka

    HaHa Ha ... funny and true .!!

  • Ryan

    They're trying to make her the new coon queen since Mia Love lost her election and is no longer of use to them and Stacy Dash... well you know you're crazy when even the YTs stop calling you back

  • Ryan

    And there are witnesses AND it's on video!! They would've lost their jobs but Cletus and 'em ain't worked since 1987!!

  • LaJuan D Johnson

    I totally agree because Trump DO NOT GIVE A DAMN about Candace ass! Point, Blank, Period! She is a little black piece of shit and just another cute lil monkey as far as he is concerned.

  • Ryan

    What are your feelings on trump, who has disrespected his wife many times with hookers and porn stars? ?

  • LaJuan D Johnson

    I agree! SLAVERY WAS NOT ALL OVER THE WORLD! Just another dumbass Trump Supporter! Hell he thought Abraham Lincoln was still alive! So that tell you that she is just as dumb as her President!!!!

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Can't argue with this comment......at all.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    T.I. dont know shit...he aint nothing but a semi educated thug who turns on his activist light when something effects him...I do not like Candace at all but the way he was overtalking her was so annoying I wanted to pop the hell outta him...this is what he does at home and you can tell that he doesn't respect women with any opinion...Im a woman before I am a democrat and that was cringeworthy...

  • Bushbabe

    This is why we as a people can't win we have uneducated rappers who look up big words like expeditiously to describe everything. Ti showed just how dumb and illiterate him and his wife are and Candice was spot on describing the state of the educational system. Ti was not not needed and was more for entertainment purposes. People booed facts and entertained the emotional rhetoric from TI and Temka who shared just thier emotions. Candice was right that white liberals like Shaun King try to control us through emotions and not share important facts to help us make educated decisions so they can keep our kids dumb to lead them. White married women %78 and black married Women %38 why is this?

  • Bushbabe

    Candice grandfather was a sharecropper
    How more ADOS do you want her to be?

  • Bushbabe

    Candice brought her grandfather to her Congressional hearing and he was the son of a share cropper
    That is very much ADOS

  • Bushbabe

    What about the Arab slave trade? Slavery in the US started with white slaves, then natives and then blacks . This what I mean about knowing history, yes slavery was in China and India too. Do we as black people own slavery? There were arab and white slaves too but black people are the only owning bs

  • Dun Dilly

    Wait, we comparing T.I. to a POTUS now?

  • Jethro
  • pynkrose407

    Killer Mike had the most common sense on the panel and clearly made valid points. https://media0.giphy.com/media/Pk2hkyRQazvpK/giphy.gif

  • Ryan

    I see you didn't answer what was a simple question, and instead chose to dance around it like another MAGA coward. Your president is a lying pervert with the easily-offended ego of a 12 yr. old and can't go more than 24 hours without lying. Plus he has the audacity to be just as ugly on the outside as he is on the inside. *yawn* Blocked.

  • chan chan

    She said she’s Caribbean can’t. E ADOS when it’s convenient.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That's the standard Republican response attempting to negate responsibility---everyone else did it.
    Just like Trump talking about Congress needs to investigate Obama's Netflix deal instead of his dirty dealings.
    It's funny how Trump never claims that he's not guilty of anything but he always points the finger at someone else.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Americans descendants of slaves.
    Some bs people made up because they don't like Obama or Kamala Harris.
    Basically some blacks aren't black enough bs.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I died ( no pun intended) a little whenever I heard Bernie Sanders call him 'Mr. Killer' in that Jewish accent.
    LOL

  • Ryan

    *sigh* I didn't know he was running his mouth to Congress about Netflix. this MFer must have ADD cause he finds it impossible to just focus on doing his job. The only screen offer trump will get after his disgraceful exit from office will be a "Survivor"-type show (you know he'll do it too, anything for attention)

  • The REAL Cheese eggs

    Thanks

    Thanks.

    ??

  • Queen B

    Ur message is spot on however, speaking on education the % goes AFTER the number (i.e. 78%, 38%, etc)

  • Queen B

    What does slavery around the world have anything to do with slavery in the USA? I’m just asking to get an understanding as to why ppl feel the need to validate this ?

  • Queen B

    Killer Mike was the highlight and educator around this platform ?? Dude in the yellow cudve stayed at home. Candance is awesome and speaks facts for the most part and I wudve like to hear more from her but unfortunately this wasn’t her platform to really speak.

  • Bushbabe

    The arabs had a practice of cutting of men dicks to demasculate them.

  • EMILY POST

    Can someone tell me how did T.i become the spokesperson for the Democratic Party entertainment division? Hilariously Tragic.
    Lol ? T.i yelling about Donald Trump and the real question is why would you have a show called family Hustle and Treat your wife so poorly?? T.I gonna have a redevelopment plan by having your black daughters prostitute oops I mean strip. This is your spokesperson really?... can’t take you serious.

  • Bushbabe

    Not always and in other countries they put the symbol before. To the uncultured eye it would seem that way. Do your research before you send your me. Actually, if you are so educated you should have checked grammar just to be technical. I am posting on a blog which is not a formal setting so I didn't spell it out. But you being slow didn't catch that one .Pay close attention and stop it like Candice said with the dumb bama gotcha shenanigans .

  • Seldomseen

    That first sentence tho....

  • Bushbabe

    The percent sign is normally used on periodic table if you would like to be technical about it. But this is not a formal academic setting and you are not as educated as you like to portray to people. You would like to shame me but you made yourself look very uncultured and simple. Have you ever traveled outside of your state or country to see how others live?
    How sad you seem.

  • Queen B

    No no no.....don’t try to make this about me honey this about u. I never mentioned anything about my degrees or credentials to appear to be more educated than u. However, when we mess up its okay, embrace the feedback and do better next time....blessings!

  • Queen B

    ? what was my original question?

  • JENNYJONES1

    1000% FACTS...........JENNY JONES!!!

  • rockstar2142

    I’d rather him speaking for me than trump or Candace.

  • rockstar2142

    Candace is a no for me. Sorry but I don’t like black folks who support dump.

  • Bushbabe

    Then don't come for me if you didn't do your research. I did not mess up and you have a narrow mind and are on your own island. People around the world do things differently. And when you have lived in other countries you do things differently. You may have a degree but you have a small mind and are not cultured. That is very sad but defend your ignorance. Whatever floats your dingy.

  • Starburst

    Candace was ill prepared for the debate. I've seen her argue numerous times with conviction and facts to prove her point. Most people who are usually loud with opposing views lack control and fall flat which showcases their inability to listen to others and come off as being insane.

  • JENNYJONES1

    CANDACE IS REALLY SMART LIKE BOOK SMART BUT DUMB IN THE COMMON SENSE DEPT TO BE BACKING A RACIST, MEAN HEARTED, NARCISSIST ASSHOLE LIKE TRUMP. HER BACKING HIM TOTALLY SILENCES AND DISCREDITS HER SMARTS AND SOLUTION TO REAL PROBLEMS IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY.............JENNY JONES!!!

  • elroy

    welcome to black society, where "feelings" are more important than facts

  • blue skies

    so embarrassing ?????

  • JENNYJONES1

    SORRY BUT CANDACE'S MESSAGE GETS CLOUDED OR ERASED B/C OF HER SUPPORT FOR TRUMP. IT'S LIKE PREACHING DRUG REFORM BUT LIVING W/A DRUG DEALER OR GETTING GIRLS OUT OF SEX TRAFFICKING BUT LIVING WITH A PIMP. THEY CANCEL EACH OTHER OUT, YOUR MESSAGE GETS LOST OR IGNORED.............JENNY JONES!!!

  • elroy

    This was a waste of time, I'm not sure why Candace would bother showing up to this "debate". Her, along with Killer Mike, were the only two speaking logically. Everyone else on the panel led with emotional rhetoric, which is what the crowd came for.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    TI thinks emotionally, hence the reason he asked a question so aggressively and refused to let Candace respond. He's such a woman. IDC how nice his schlung is. He was wrong for his. Also, IDK how further Killer Mike's going to take his message with that name. Like bro, come on.

    TI was asking what era was America great for Blacks. I have to ask him how much has he profited from getting certain politicians elected.

  • Bushbabe

    7 The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right

  • Queen B

    Oh okay......carry on ??

  • Oya Shango

    "slavery was all over the world." . . . That is a copt-out and strawman diversion. TI asked about "AMERICA" and the trump slogan pertaining to AMERICA and its tarnished history. She should have been honest enough to answer that. She deserved to be boo-ed.

    I was watching the Simpson's the other night. A 2008 episode and the town needed Ralph's vote he had both parties coming after him. And in one scene Ralph says to Lisa " I want to Make America Great Again." Y'all I fking died, he got his slogan from the Simpson's and Ralph at that.

  • ………

    Like his wife got her speech from Michelle.. they some TV watching stealing mofo's

  • ………

    Killer Mike should go by K Mike or just drop Killer all together. He's to intelligent and knowledgeable to be over looked or passed over due to a name like Killer. Candace and Mike owned that stage... I would love to hear this debate while actually putting things into work because we can do it as a people... but continuously having debates/discussions and no change makes NO SENSE...... It's okay to be passionate about something. But we have to learn to put our emotions aside - TI.

    sidenote: That Katrina chic............. isn't she a booster

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Candace is a political mercenary. She was against Trump before she was for him.
    Candace isn't book smart either. When she tried to claim that Hilter was a 'globalist' because he tried to take over the world was a fail with a capital 'F'.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Candace is all conservative talking points on repeat.

  • sunni_daze

    I'm telling you. Its sad and pathetic

  • Ci Sam

    I'm just glad that Mike was the only one who acknowledged that ppl need to stfu when a black woman is speaking. No point in asking a question if you dont give her a chance to respond. I'm also glad Mike shut everyone up after they bantered back and forth about Democrat vs Republican. Stop arguing about who has the best massa.

  • Ci Sam

    Yes dude in the yellow had no place they shouldve booed his ass off the stage. He reference potato salad twice

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Facts , Killer Mike spoke and debated well and was logical.

  • J2PC

    Just like crooked churches have done a number on manipulating the minds & emotions of many Black folks, so have self-serving politicians who are tied hollywierd connections to help get the job done via a number of distractions while reinforcing negative images, behaviors & dysfunctional mentalities sinking a swath of the Black population futher down the totem pole.

    It's because of Biden's & Clinton's 3-Strike Law of the mid 1990s that Black males like T.I. are/were mass-incarcerated.

    Yet, the mantra is to put commonsense & historical facts on pause in order to vote for the same self-serving questionable politicians who have cleverly figured out how to help themselves by steering & gathering Black folks by the millions to live in crime infested, poverty stricken urban areas where they will be more frustrated & stressed out over dead end jobs while dealing with rodents, roaches, bedbugs, etc. on top of contaminated water, paint, soil & air with failing public schools & moldy or lead-peeling housing in high rise buildings (the brick maze for a liberal's social experiment aka a game of survival of the fittest to see who can overcome the odds).

  • TheOwley

    Candace Owens would eat him alive. She has a mind of her own and doesn't live on anybody's plantation and she doesn't have time for mental midgets. Make America... is not about going back to slavery, etc. It's about bringing back our economic might which we handed over to the Chinese and other Asian countries on a silver platter going back to the 90's. We no longer make refrigeration, washing machines, any household item mostly invented in America by Americans is outsourced. The America we see today is being destroyed by progressive ideas and yes, blacks will be the absolute losers on that one. Blacks are conservative at heart. Soul stolen.

  • AListDiva29

    I applaud his efforts, but he's not the most intelligent person either. I don't think all black Americans have to be Democrats, but I cant understand why black conservatives are supporting Trump? She's an intelligent woman, but her efforts seem to be a waste of time in this area.

  • AListDiva29

    That's the comment I made too. People don't want to listen to her when it comes to politics, so she needs to find another arena to focus on.

  • TamG

    The two Trump supporters on the panel stated explicitly why they support Trump: Record funding for HBCUs, First Step Prison Reform, record Black employment, opportunity zones for minority businesses.

    Did you miss that part of the discussion?

  • Look@m3

    Except for when he kept saying the N word repeatedly I was like come on Killer.....that's not necessary but I loved hearing him speak!

  • AListDiva29

    Too busy working! Others commented nearly the same thing about Candace, did u read those? Tip is just a buffoon and had no business in that panel!

  • Maxx

    Tip has every bit of business being on that panel whether you agree with him or not..that's the point of a debate to have different people come together expressing their opinions & their way of looking at the subject at hand. Tip is a businessman & he is a black man that has a stake in this world, children growing up in this world, he has access to politicians & those that make a difference.
