Rappers often like to think of themselves as tough guys but at least when it comes to T.I. it seems he is willing to back it up.
According to TMZ, the singer, who has had Top 10 hits in America with cheerful ditties such as 'Bring Em Out', 'Big S**t Poppin' (Do It)' and 'Swagga Like Us' , took the incredibly brave (and stupid) decision to start a brawl with Floyd Mayweather – you know the guy who just so happens to be the best boxer in the world.
The gossip website reports, with accompanying video evidence, that the fight happened at a Fatburger restaurant in Las Vegas, when T.I "walked up and started jawing at Floyd."
The report continues: "It's unclear what caused the beef, but we're told T.I. swung at Floyd ... their giant bodyguards jumped in to separate them ... and then the all out melee began.
"Police confirm a Fatburger employee was slashed during the fight, but he refused treatment and did not want to cooperate with investigating officers. In other words ... no snitching."
Pity the two men couldn't just sit down over a malt shake and get on with each other, as they might have found they have lots in common, such as time spent in prison.
T.I. has served two terms in county jail, twice for probation violations, and a federal prison bid for a US federal weapons charge.
Meanwhile, Mayweather served 90 days in jail for battery upon his ex-girlfriend in September 2010.
