TI, who you might know from songs like ‘Live Your Life,’ recently talked about this on DJ Whoo Kid’s SiriusXM Whoo’s House Podcast. He said that the beef between Drake and Kendrick is one of the most blown-out-of-proportion (that’s what ‘exacerbated’ means) feuds he’s ever seen. And trust me, TI knows a thing or two about rap battles.

Even though TI spent a lot of his career in the 2000s going head-to-head with other rappers, he has grown and changed his views. Now, he thinks both Drake and Kendrick are awesome and have made huge hits that define this generation. He said, ‘I got respect for both of them. I think [Drake and Kendrick are] both phenomenal hitmakers.’

What makes this super interesting is TI’s solution. He thinks that instead of continuing their fight, Drake and Kendrick should do a joint tour together. Yup, he believes that coming together would not only end the beef but also be a huge hit with fans and make a ton of money. ‘I’m just waiting on the tour,’ he said. ‘That’s the only thing.’

TI isn’t the first person to suggest something like this. Chuck D from Public Enemy also thought they should go on tour together and use their rivalry for something good. Chuck D said, ‘These fantastic 3 rappers (I’m biased for KL) have songs that never will get this public attention… Get them all on a TOUR so we can pick seats.’

So why does TI think this is the best way forward? He believes that after all the lies and harsh words, a public reunion tour would be the only thing big enough to surpass the drama. He said, ‘Listen, after the disagreement, the only thing that’s gon’ sell is the reunion.’

Although it’s a super cool idea, no one knows if Drake and Kendrick will actually agree to it. But it’s fun to imagine all three—Drake, Kendrick, and maybe even J. Cole—on the same stage, rocking out and leaving all the bad vibes behind.

In the end, TI’s idea is all about turning something negative into something positive. Whether or not Drake and Kendrick Lamar will set aside their differences and go on a tour is still up in the air. But one thing is for sure—if it happens, it’s going to be epic!
