As more details emerge about the two suspects who reportedly bombed the Boston Marathon on April 15 -- including that one of them, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was reportedly a hip-hop fan -- rapper T.I. has spoken out about the findings.

TMZ reported on April 19 that Tamerlan was big into hip-hop and belonged to a hip-hop fan website, Real-hiphop.com. The site posts info and pictures about certain artists and upcoming DVD releases, and T.I. says he isn't pleased that pictures of him were used on the site.

T.I. tells TMZ that he has "no connection" to the hip-hop website and says he had no idea that his pictures were posted there. He also reportedly never even heard about the site.

More, T.I. expressed his anger over the fact that hip-hop is being associated with this tragedy.

"Hip-hop narrates the activity and conditions of our culture," he said. "It doesn't create them. Hip-hop ain't never been about hurting innocent people.

Of the Boston bombings, he tells TMZ it "was a horrible tragedy and my prayers go out to the families involved."

Tamerlan was killed during a shootout with police the early morning of April 19. His 19-year-old brother, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, also a bombing suspect, is currently in custody and hospitalized in serious condition.
