T.I. Credits Rick Ross For Helping End Houston's Restaurant Boycott


Grammy-winning rapper T.I. has confirmed it's safe to support Houston's restaurants again. The King of the South has come forward with a must-read statement about ending a publicized boycott.

Tip went to Instagram Monday (March 5) and said things have worked out after months of protesting the establishment over racism claims at the franchise's Atlanta spot.

As well as Jenny Drake, Miss Deb, Mrs.H, Rick Ross, and everyone else in the collective I had the pleasure of representing. All your testimonies made change possible. THIS IS ABOUT THE PEOPLE.... NOT ME!!!!! #USorELSE✊🏽

Last week, T.I. initially announced the boycott had come to a sudden end following some intense behind the scenes talks.

Very Thankful for everyone’s support on this matter. Because of you all, & the Hillstone Group’s passion for progress we were able to make a difference. I’m happy to say... We may now enjoy the spinach dip again!!!! #HoustonsFixedTheProblem #NoStruggleNoProgress #USorELSE

Back in October 2017, Tip went in on his issues with Houston's and stood behind his boycott.

These 2 Kings just walked off from their jobs at #Houstons today & joined our demonstration. They said they did so because they too witnessed discrimination & felt it from patrons as well as the high level staff. These young Kings said they were fed up with it & QUIT!!!! SKRAIGHT LIKE THAT & came to join US!!! As expected...they say the patrons yelled "FUCK YOU NIGGER" & "GO BACK TO POPEYES"!!!! Those racist bigoted patrons WERE NOT ASKED TO LEAVE. Because this behavior is apart of the #HoustonsHillstoneCulture That's why we're demonstrating & boycotting!!! So THESE YOUNG KINGS along with anyone else who's ever felt discrimination at #Houstons or any other #Hillstone restaurant,THERE IS ACTION THAT CAN BE TAKEN!!!! You don't just have to be disrespected & called a NIGGER & that just be that. WE CAN UNITE,ORGANIZE,& #ShutItDown!!!! I'm here in support of ANY & EVERYONE WHOS EVER BEEN AFFECTED by their discriminatory culture at #houstonshillstone #boycotthoustons #HoustonsWeHaveAProblem #USorELSE
