T.I. has brushed off reports of a rap rivalry with Ludacris - insisting the pair have a "healthy relationship".
The pair shocked fans convinced they were at odds when they collaborated on a song entitled Wish You Would, which appears on Ludacris' latest album.
But the Whatever You Like hitmaker insists he's never had ill-will toward his fellow rapper.
He says, "We weren't fighting. There were some disagreements among the organisations, whether it was friends of his or friends of mine.
"But we always maintained a healthy relationship. That was the competitive nature of what we do... I'm sure he has to sit back and admire my work as I do his."
