Tip "T.I." Harris is apparently experiencing a midlife crisis. The Grammy Award-winning platinum rapper decided to try his hand as a stand-up comedian at age 41.
But his midlife career change as a comedian is not getting the support from other comedians who worked hard to achieve their success.
In fact, some veteran comedians are insulted that T.I. is doing stand-up comedy.
Veteran comedian Godrey spoke out disapprovingly after T.I. showed up at his comedy gig in Atlanta and asked to follow his headlining set. Godfrey said he didn't take the rapper seriously as a comedian.
"As a headliner, no one is supposed to go up after you. You're not a comedian to me," Godfrey said in a recent podcast.
Godfrey suggested that T.I. was using his clout to perform at popular comedy shows with no comedy experience.
Godfrey advised T.I. to work his way up by performing at open mic nights. He said that a comedian wouldn't show up at a rap concert asking to go on after the headliner.
Godfrey's criticism cut T.I. deeply.
In a video posted on his Instagram account, T.I. claimed he was invited to the comedy club by the owners, and he called Godfrey a dry hater.
Question: Should T.I. keep his day job?
