I believe he calls it Grand Hustle, shawty. Believe me, I know it sounds better coming from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]T.I.[/lastfm] but I’m just trying to explain how hard he’s been working since being released from the halfway house months ago.
T.I. is in the midst of filming his own VH1 reality show. But instead of the chaos you see in reality T.V. like Bad Girls Club or Who Wants to Date This Rich Guy (that should be a show, if it isn’t), Tip’s show focuses on his family. Entitled, “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle,” the show was supposed to start taping the first day T.I. was released from the halfway house.
Unfortunately for the “Kang of the South,” a federal judge preferred that he not perform any business until his full release and was ordered back into custody to finish out his sentence in the halfway house. After that incident, T.I. was careful when leaving the second time and has no plans to return as he’s made clear in the songs he’s released since being sprung.
The VH1 show will premier on the network on December 5th. Plan to see and up close and personal look at T.I.’s family and professional life.
This will hopefully include more insight into the relationship book T.I. and Tiny have planned, as well as a spotlight of the musical talent in the rest of the family. Like T.I.’s son, Domini, who has been talking a whole lot about being a rapper lately. He even released a remix to his dad’s latest track, “I’m Flexin.” Like father, like son, I presume. I bet Tip couldn’t be more proud!
I most look forward to getting a glimpse into his extravagant brunch he threw for his friends, family and the mayor. I bet the food was on point!
Headed to the yo, another nite of work…y'all holla at me!—
