Tip "T.I." Harris (left) appeared to settle his differences with comedian Godfrey, who suggested the rapper should keep his day job after hearing his comedy routine.

Aspiring comedian T.I. ruffled a few feathers by asking veteran comedians to let him follow their headlining sets rather than open for them.

Apparently, T.I. doesn't think a superstar should have to follow anyone's act.

Several comedians took offense to the rapper bogarting their headlining sets. But only one comedian - Godfrey - spoke out publicly.

T.I. was outraged after Godfrey said he didn't take the rapper seriously as a comedian.

As the controversy escalated on social media, Nick Cannon, who hired Godfrey as a writer for his talk show, offered to arrange a meeting between T.I. and Godfrey to clear the air.

T.I. went straight for Godfrey's jugular when the two finally did hook up via live-stream.

"If you don't like it, come get me off stage then, if that's how you feel. Or let the crowd boo me off stage," the outraged rapper told Godfrey.

He added:

"I don't give a f*** how long you been doing it. I don't give a f*** what you gotdamn had to go through that I don't got to go through. That's yo' problem!"

In a later discussion, T.I. had a change of heart. A much calmer T.I. said:

"It's important for us to have this conversation publicly because it's a public matter. And it's important for the world to see Black men resolve our issues amicably."

He went on to say that his foray into comedy was simply a hand up to comedians who have been struggling to make it big.

T.I. suggested that there isn't enough money in comedy for him to take it seriously. He said that he's only helping comedians and not trying to eat off their plates.

Flame Monroe rushed to defend fellow comedian Dave Chappelle following outrage over his Netflix comedy special, The Closer.

Flame -- a Black trans comic -- tells TMZ he's not in favor of taking Dave's new Netflix special off the air - because in the world of comedy, nothing is off-limits.

Dave cracking jokes over the LGBTQ+ community is fair game, says Flame, and should NOT be censored in the slightest.

"So as a comedian I believe that I don't want to be censored," Flame tells TMZ.

"I think that nothing is off limits and I think the social climate right now and the temperament started way back with Norman Lear, who had his finger on the pulse many years ago."

Flame went on to explain that Lear took risks with his television shows, such as Good Times and The Jeffersons, which tackled social issues such as racism and intolerance.

"The world has become too censored," said Flame.

"As a comedian, I don't want to be censored. As a trans woman, I want equality. And as a Black person, I want fair treatment in this country that we've been trying to get for 400 years."

Comedian Damon Wayans praised Chappelle for freeing comedian slaves who worried about being canceled.

Flame goes further by praising Chappelle as "great," while also saying he believes Chappelle has brought people together in a much needed way -- to create open dialogue.

Flame said, "I absolutely do not think the special should be taken off of Netflix... There is no topic that should be off limits."
