T.I. wants to secure his title as the one-and-only ‘creator of trap music,’ which led him to shut down claims made by Gucci Mane on a recent Instagram post.
“Ok,so…. AGAIN for the slow ones in the back… August 19th, 2003 Birth of Trap Muzik & Only fools dispute facts!!!” he wrote on Instagram. “FOH wit that Christopher Columbus ass… ‘Look what I discovered,even though they was already here ass shit!!!!’ WITCHO GOOD CAPPIN ASS.” He says.
On a back-in-the-day interview, T.I. said, “there was no such thing as trap music prior to [T.I.]. No such thing. It didn’t exist. It was Outkast and crunk, like that’s what it was. Organized Noize and crunk.”
