On Thursday, Twitter user @KriegLaFlare challenged T.I. to what he called an "anti-gravity hat-off".

I challenge you to an anti gravity hat off Clifford. You have 24 hours to respond or I am the new King @Tip

Quickly others began joining in, looking to take the title as rightful heir to the side-hat throne.

Speaking to BuzzFeed News, Krieg Walker aka @KriegLaFlare said he was inspired to challenge "the king of the South and the king of balancing hats on his head" after one of his songs came on a playlist.

@bedheadshawty @2Girls1Richard @Tip u sure bout dat?

"I decided to challenge him for king of both spots," he said. "That really doesn't matter, though — I just want a response from T.I. by 3:18 Pacific Standard Time or he forfeits his title and I become king of the hats and maybe the South."

As of 07:29 PT, T.I. had yet to respond to the challenge.
