Here are some notable lines from the track:

“Damn, it must suck to be a fuck nigga / Old greedy ass nigga, always thinking ‘about himself / They get the fame, they get the wealth/ But people are struggling, who did you help?”

“I ain’t made as much as you have / Purses you grab could feed some countries out in Africa / You just go buy a Lamb or Bugatti.”

“It’s a water crisis out in Flint. And ain’t you from Michigan? Where is your empathy, nigga?”

Shortly after T.I. released the diss track, Mayweather issued a statement to his Instagram account, saying,

Why would we (as a people) agree to a temporary boycott of Gucci for merely 3 months if what was one caused so much strife? Why wouldn’t we agree to a permanent boycott of Gucci as well as all other merchandise that fall under the Kering ownership, such as YSL, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen and more? I’ll tell you why, it’s because in this day, celebrities and failing artist pick and choose the hottest trending topic as a means of seeking attention and using fake advocacy as their platform when their “talent” no longer benefit them.

In the caption, he added, ‘These people are playing hopscotch. First, they’re supposedly boycotting the NFL but as soon as the Super Bowl came around, they were either at the game, watching it on TV or throwing Super Bowl parties. Last week, it was R Kelly, this week it’s Gucci. People boycott for trend but turn around and still shop at H&M and watch the NFL.”
