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.

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?
