Rapper T.I. was caught on camera shoving security guards in Las Vegas just hours before his bust-up with floyd mayweather, Jr.

The Whatever You Like hitmaker reportedly approached the boxer outside a burger restaurant in Sin City early on Sunday (25May14) and had a heated exchange before throwing a punch.

A video obtained by Tmz.com shows the rapper getting into another dispute just hours earlier with security guards at a pool party after they denied him entry because he refused to be searched.

In the footage, T.I. can be seen arguing and shoving the men to gain access to the area.

Police officers broke up the scuffle and T.I. was later allowed into the party.
