Recently there was a rumor going around that rapper T.I. almost had a role on the hit Starz spin-off “Power Book 2: Ghost”!
The rumor was started by Power Book II: Ghost stars Michael Rainey Jr. (Tariq) and Gianni Paolo (Brayden) with an interview at TMZ.
“I heard – this is a rumor, I can’t confirm,” Paolo opened. “T.I. was supposed to play Method Man’s character. I don’t know if there was beef or something happened, but he never ended up playing him, and Meth was Davis MacLean.”
Rainey added: “This was early in the production before we started filming. We showed up to set, and Method was there. They didn’t really tell us.”
T.I. spoke to former NFL player Tony “The Closer” Robinson during a recent episode of his Get Yo A** Up! podcast.
He cleared up the rumors about Power Book II: Ghost.
“That’s not true,” he said with a puzzled look on his face. “50 and I were executive producers on a different show, outside of the Power universe. But nah, man. Me and 50 cool.”
He added: “I think I’m the only one that’s not offended by his brash approach and he’s not offended by mine, so, you know, we play rough but ain’t no issue. It’s a mutual respect though.”
So looks like there’s really no beef after all but 50 and T.I. are both two outspoken men so we can see why there’s been clashes in the past.
