31 people were shot and 5 killed in Atlanta over the weekend, including 8-year-old Secoreia Turner.

Secoriea was riding in a car with her mother and a male friend when she was shot and killed by BLM activists guarding the burned out shell of a Wendy's restaurant in Southwest Atlanta on Saturday.

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris thinks he knows who's responsible for the bloodshed on Atlanta's streets.

T.I. sparked controversy on Sunday with an Instagram post that seemed to suggest the Atlanta police were randomly shooting people and blaming Black Lives Matter activists.

The rapper, who fancies himself to be the modern day Malcolm X, posted a photo of an Atlanta police cruiser under the headline "4 killed, 22 people injured in 6 different shootings on 4th of July weekend, police say."

He captioned the post: "Think it's a game if u want to...."

The diminutive hip-hop star was criticized for his post. One IG usr wrote:

"Yeah it was the police that shot a 8yr old child... secoriea turner...man @troubleman31 get yo expoditously self out of here ...half them was caused by yo own people...cops may be killing yall and us other minorities( cause we havent been there).. but yo own kind is the reall kkk...blacks kills themselves off more than the kkk has every tried to in this current times."

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris's daughter Deyjah Harris seemed to move one step closer to accusing him of abusing her as a child.

Last week, the 18-year-old beauty sparked rumors that she was abused when she was 11 years old. She criticized Black families for ignoring childhood abuse and specifically for protecting the abusers in their families.

"Ok I'm so tired of how the black community doesn't speak up on the things that happens in the family ............... stop protecting the men and women that touch children (sic)!!!!!"

Her outburst prompted social media to speculate that someone - a male - in Deyjah's family may have abused her.

In response to a follower who wrote, "dis not da time for dat," she raged:

"IT ALL MATTERS. it all matters. violence, police brutality, abuse, sexual harassment, etc. IT ALL MATTERS. When did i ever come out my mouth and say 'hey one issue matters more than the other' ...... you keep tryna justify what you saying and you still ain't making sense. how is what i said tearing each other in any way? please help me understand, IF ANYTHING IM PROTECTING YALL!!!!!"

In a preview for next week's episode of Friends & Family Hustle, Deyjah explained why she and her father, T.I., are not particularly close.

"Things are completely awkward between me and my dad," she said. "The situation is just a little traumatizing for me." She added she just "didn't want to be around" T.I.

In an earlier post, Deyjah said she suffered from mental health issues including depression as a result of what happened to her when she was 11 years old.

Insiders have noticed over the years that Deyjah is usually the only child missing from the Harris family functions and photo shoots.

Deyjah is T.I.'s eldest daughter.

President Trump trolled rapper Tip "T.I." Harris by using his hit song "Whatever You Like" in a Joe Biden diss video.

T.I. issued a stern response to Trump using his single "Whatever You Like" in a smear ad against former Vice President Joe Biden.

"It goes without saying, that T.I. would not in any way ever support the divisive policies and destructive propaganda of Trump. The people of our country deserve far better than this," he said in a statement per the Miami Herald.

"Be clear, he does not authorize it or consent to the use of his song to falsely suggest any endorsement of President Trump or to attack Joe Biden. It is sad, but expected, that this President would stoop so low to use his property without authority to manipulate the community. T.I.'s legal team and media partners are already moving expeditiously to block this unauthorized use and set the record straight in no uncertain terms."

Trump was able to use the track without permission because the song is distorted, which changes the original track to something new. Kanye West used the same studio technique to sample copyrighted songs on his tracks.

The 39-year-old rapper has been a vocal critic of President Trump even before the 73-year-old was elected in 2016. Trump is very much aware that T.I. has no love for him.

Which explains why Trump trolled the rapper by using his own words to smear Biden.

In an open letter to Trump in 2017, T.I. wrote:

"Should it ever at times seem as though WE are against YOU, I assure you it's a result of YOU defining yourself as the representative for those who are and who always have been against US."

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris is disappointed that one of his sons has refused to appear on his Vh1 reality TV show The Family Hustle.

T.I. spoke with Big Bank and DJ Scream on their podcast show "Big Facts." T.I. explained that his son Domani Harris has chosen to take a different path to stardom and won't appear on The Family Hustle this season.

T.I., who shares Domani and six other children with his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris, said Domani will not appear in the current season because he no longer wants to be associated with the show or with his dad.

T.I. said the 19-year-old left $85,000 on the table.

"That man gave up -- what was it for one season? I think it was $80,000 $85,000. They told him all you got to do is show up. Just for being in the background."

Even with production offering to limit his camera time, Domani declined to participate in the reality show.

The aspiring rapper recently released the song "The Truth." In addition to following in his father's footsteps, he also took up acting and appeared in "SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical."

T.I. said his son wants to embark on his own career path without any ties to the scripted reality show or his famous father.

The "King of the South" could not hide his disappointment.

"He real adamant about making his own path, you know what I'm saying? You know he has a keen intent to separate his legacy from my legacy."

T.I., pictured center with sons Messiah Harris (left) and Domani, said he understood the teenager's decision, but he would never walk away from that much cash for basically doing nothing. He said his son is not a paper chaser like him.

"I wouldn't have given up any money. I wouldn't have let no money slide by, but I get it."

Question: Would you walk away from $85,000 to choose your own career path?

"You all can quote me on this a couple of years down the line," Chance the Rapper said. "I think Trump is going to win again at the next election because he's got the biggest base."

"He does. I believe it," said Cardi B, citing the passion of Trump supporters.

"I really hate to say it, but sometimes I do believe that Trump will be winning," Cardi added. The 27-year-old rapper noted that none of the Democratic candidates have achieved the level of support that Trump has among his loyal base.

"Just because due to the fact that every single time I don't see nobody saying they love a Democratic candidate," she said. "There's no candidate that people are saying like we love, we want them to win.

"A lot of people vote with feelings in America and a lot of their feelings is racism and religion," she added.

Cardi is a vocal supporter of independent Bernie Sanders who recently suffered a heart attack that may limit his appearances on the campaign trail.

President Trump won a small victory on Tuesday when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced she will not hold a floor vote to authorize an official impeachment inquiry.

"There is no requirement that we have a vote and so at this time we will not be having a vote," Pelosi said in a press briefing following a meeting with House Democrats on Tuesday.

Trump came under fire by the Democrats for asking a foreign power to investigate corruption by presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who is accused of using his father's position as vice president to accept millions of dollars from foreign powers. A practice known as "influence peddling."

Political analysts predicted the Democrats would not follow through with the impeachment inquiry into Trump, since it would cause a distraction for Joe Biden and the other Democratic candidates on the campaign trail.

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris is ashamed that he agreed to co-sign Iggy Azalea before she dropped her only rap hit "Fancy" in 2014.

Record labels are known to pair popular artists with newcomers to introduce them to a readymade fanbase.

T.I. caught a lot of heat from social media for co-signing the 29-year-old Australian rapper.

Harlem rapper Azealia Banks was among those who criticized T.I. after Iggy called herself a "runaway slave" in a rap song.

But now T.I. is apologizing for helping to legitimize Iggy.

In a promo for his new Netflix competition reality show Rhythm + Flow, the 39-year-old Libra apologized and called Iggy his "biggest blunder."

"I'm still actively looking for another female rapper who can undo the blunder of Iggy Azalea," he said. "That is the tarnish of my legacy as far as a music executive is concerned. To me, this is like when Michael Jordan went to play baseball," he said comparing himself to the NBA icon.

Iggy went awf in response to T.I.'s diss. She called him a "misogynistic a**hole" and threw jabs at T.I.'s current roster of rappers who have yet to see hits.

"Imagine thinking I was his biggest blunder lmaoooooooo," she wrote. "Tip, Sweetie. We have a whole list for you."
