Although he’s known for his hard-core rap songs and a recent stint in prison for a parole violation after a previous incarceration on gun charges, Clifford “T.I.” Harris is a proud family man.
With their new VH1 reality show T.I. & Tiny’s Family Hustle, they’ve been compared to the famous TV family.
“It’s flattering, though I like to think of us as a unique piece of our society!” T.I. says. “The Huxtables are more conservative, older and from a different environment. But we share unity, strength and prominence.”
The Swagga Like Us singer says it was his family’s support that got him through 10-months in prison.
“I went to see him every week and the kids talked to him all the time,” Tiny says.
And though it’s a handful with six kids from the age of 4 to 16, T.I. is enjoying family life. “It’s chaotic — but if it wasn’t, it’d be boring!”
