T.I. attends the Tidal X: 1015 benefit concert, hosted by Tidal and the Robin Hood Foundation, at the Barclays Center on Oct. 15, 2016 in New York. 

Twenty-three years after Tupac was shot at New York’s Quad studios, Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex felt it was his duty to inform 'Pac fans that he actually shot himself during the ambush.

“You Pac fans always talking that talk,” Flex said during his Instagram Live. “Cheddar Bob came in there, popped himself in the leg. Popped himself first. That’s what happened.”

It hasn’t been made clear why Flex felt the need to bring up the events at Quad studios, which then began the infamous East Coast-West Coast beef, but there are a lot of things Flex does that people don’t understand. Catching wind of Flex’s comments, T.I. took to Instagram to respectfully correct the 48-year-old DJ.

“Considering they ain't here to speak up for themselves. When he was alive, you was on da air then...,” T.I. captioned, “That was the time to address this. Not here. Not now. Not like this, and I’d say the same to a n---a from LA speaking on BIG." 

T.I. -- who also publicly scolded Lil Wayne after his Black Lives Matter comments during his Nightline interview -- recently performed during the Tupac induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April.  As it stands now, Flex hasn’t responded to T.I. but do you think he should, or has Brother T.I. basically said all that needs to be said about this topic?
