BET‘s newest series Rate The Bars, features rappers rating the bars of their peers without knowing who the lines belong to, and for its most recent episode, the always outspoken T.I. gives his unfiltered opinion.
With lyrics from a variety of rappers including Ludacris, Jeezy, the late Tupac Shakur, Iggy Azalea, and even himself, the ATL native ranked Tupac Shakur lowest with a rating of one out of five bars for his “Something Wicked” lyrics. “I give this a 1. I gave it a 1 because it’s ‘rat, cat, dog, fog, run, fun.’ I’m done,” T.I. said.
Iggy Azalea also scored a low rating with a 2.5, for her bars on “Switch.” “It rhymes. And they’re talking about things. I give it a 2.5,” he said. Naturally, when rating his own bars, T.I. showed a little bias, as he gifted himself with a 3.5 for his “savvy” double entendres on “King of Da South.”
