T.I. is not ready to forgive Gucci for the brand’s blackface mishap.

The rapper, 38, confronted a man on the street for wearing the Italian label’s clothing after Gucci was embroiled in a controversy involving a black turtleneck with red lips that inferred blackface.

“Stand up for yourself, brother,” T.I. told the man in a video posted to Instagram. “It’s what’s in you, not what’s on you. That s—t ain’t s—t until we put it on! We make that s—t fly! Look at me, n—a. I’m fly as a motherf—ker and I ain’t got that s—t on. I look better than you, as a matter of fact.”

While the man tried to deflect by pointing out that T.I. used to wear Gucci before the backlash, he immediately shut it down. “They showed me their disrespect, so guess what? I can’t do it no more,” he said.
