T.I. and Tiny arrive


Celebrity photographer Derek Blanks and his clients Tiny and T.I.

Rapper T.I. began his first day of court ordered community service by speaking to youth at 4 different schools in Atlanta yesterday (3/31). After an exhausting day of meeting and greeting with the youth, T.I. and his sweetie Tiny decided to unwind by attending the industry event: Alter Ego: A Pictorial Exhibition By Derek Blanks, last night in Atlanta.

Derek Blanks is the personal photographer to many local celebrities including T.I. and Tiny. His work is highly sought after and his event was well attended.

    tiny is glowing! that's the best i've ever seen her look! lol @ cee-lo....he has his own style! love it! i'm sick of janelle monae and that same outfit! at least it always look like she has on the same thing to me.....but i guess she has her own style too so let me shut up before i get called the overused word "hater"...

  • NYCUTIE

    Good Morning :)
    I am happy that Tiny's pregnancy is going along well! She is the perfect woman for TI cause she is there through thick and thin. Hopefully he sees that and will NEVER cheat on her again! I hope he will marry her soon!

  • http://www.straightfromthea.com ATLien

    Awww...it's so good to see Tiny and Tip out and about together! Thanks SR for bringing us this good news this morning!

    Black & white is in this season but not for Cee-lo! He looks a h.a.m!

  • tdl74767

    Yeah, Tiny looks good, I hope this pregnancy goes well, with her last pregnancy she was rippin and runnin trying to keep up with T.I. Now they have just been chillin at home, so I think things will go well this time.

    Why does Janelle Monae' look like she always wears the same outfits. Does anyone else think so?

  • gemini83

    @ kat and tdl74767

    .....I remember Janelle Monae saying in an interview or something that she will always wear that outfit because it's her style or something. I can't remember everything she said or when and where the interview was, but I DO remember her saying that. I don't sound real credible right now, but trust me. LOL I guess...to each its own, but I still love her music!

  • WeezysBaby

    Did you mean to say their first night out "this" year not in a year.. because he was just put on house arrest the end of '07 it hasnt been a complete year yet Sandy!

  • http://www.findentertainmentnow.com miesha@FindEntertainmentNow.com

    oh gosh janelle monae looked so pretty last night. she seems so weird to people but up close she is a doll!!! omg! and so sweet too. i'm secretly in love with Cee-Lo Green....grrrrrrrr!!! and i gotta say that Derek Blanks is da bomb! i want him to do my alter ego.

    Well,it seems as if the happy couple enjoyed themselves and eveyone was happy to see them as well.

    And Sandra stated under one of the photos that: "Shavon and Dorian of BET’s College Hill make a cute couple"
    O.....K? I can't c it Sandra. :)

  • http://notenoughrealmen.blogspot.com 2thick4u

    It is good to see them out and about. I hope that this couple really have a lasting relationship. They look so cute together:)!!!

  • kitty4shigady

    Tiny looks great and they look so happy gald to see them out looking great and happy very happy. TI Knows tTiny is his ride or die chick he better do right by her I think he will.

  • http://notenoughrealmen.blogspot.com 2thick4u

    Might I add...that picture of Monica is HOTT!!!

    He is a very talented artist!!! Your pictures doesn't do them any justice!!!

  • gemini83

    Dorian from College Hill: SUSPECT, DL, ETC??? LOL

  • bloggergirlz

    i confused...i thought he was still on house arrest (for another year)? i understand attending events to speak to kids, but how does this industry event fit in?

    tiny looks too "tiny" to be carrying a baby! she's looks good and has a glow...i don't watch college hill, but that guy looks gay to me and there's nothing sexy about them sticking their tongues out like that!

  • bloggergirlz

    now i understand the TI/house arrest issue...

    @ gemini83: i'm wondering the same thing!

  • http://www.myspace.com/birdshu Bird

    That wasn't his first time out in a year. T.I. was arrested 6 months ago. Anywho, I hope they were able to enjoy the event. I like the Monica pic. Especially the one with her walking with the adorable Rodney Jr.

  • JustSaying

    What in the heck does Tiny have on? That dress is now working in her favor. Try again Tiny.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    @ Bird: you're right! Ha ha, I guess it seemed like a year. :)

  • Hotstuff

    Good for TI and Tiny...nice to see them smiling again
    That monica pic is hot
    Sorry but I'm so sick of us females doesn't matter which color wearing these tacky ass hair weaves!!
    Shavon was dead wrong for that...
    Dorion eventhough I have a problem with his sadiddy attitude I'm surprised his metrosexual ass let her out the house like that or even took a pic let alone 2 with her looking like that...

    She looks like an even broker Jackie-O...am I the only one???

  • BLACKBARBIE404

    GUESS I'LL BE THE SECOND 2 SAY THAT TINY'S DRESS LOOKS H.A.M. EVERYONE CANT WEAR REGULAR CLOTHES AND MAKE THEM MATERNITY WEAR! I STILL LOVE HER THOUGH.

    HUMMM...SO IS THAT A CLUE THAT THE COLLEGE HILL PEEPS ARE DATING? I CAN'T SEE MYSELF TAKING A PIC LIKE THAT WITH SOMEONE WHO PUTS (_) IN THIER MOUTH!!! I'M JUST SAYING!!!!

    GLAD TO SEE TIP IS OUT AND ABOUT THOUGH - EVEN THOUGH RUMORS ARE SPREADING LIKE WILDFIRE THAT HE'S A SNITCH!!! I DOUBT IT THOUGH..... LOL

  • Krysi – yes the same one

    I think the dress is cool, she's pregnant?! You really can't here to wear anything too dramatic, especially with a fiance like T.I. who has probably grown closer to his love and demands that she keep covered. I can tell that it doesn't matter what she has on, he's all hers.

  • Krysi – yes the same one

    *can't expect her*

  • kitty4shigady

    I think she looks great I think she looks cute in the dress I mean tiny is so little she all baby so i think she is one of those people who can still rock regular clothes and they look cute on her.

  • pinkvirgo

    Hey I like that dress mainly b/c I have the same one lol and I looked very cute in it however I am not prego.Tiny has looked a lot worse trust me.

  • kitty4shigady

  • Krysi – yes the same one

    yea, he looks like he's head over heels...oh yeah and for those who ain feeling the dress, I know you feeling the blinged out Gucci shoes she's sporting to match right?

  • Mz_Magnificent1

    Hellz Yeah TI is into his boo!!! Tiny has proven...hands-down without a doubt she is riding with Tip til the end. All these other chicks would have ran for the hills, if they had to go through half of what Tiny has went through with TI.

    Tiny looks very nice and she is indeed glowing...I am happy that everything is working out for them, its good to see them out and about again:-).

  • BLACKBARBIE404

    @ Krysi - yes the same one

  • aprilshowers

  • MzDetermined

    @ Kat

    I agree I am tired of that outit and her bangs, she def needs a make over. Tiny looks good.. glad to see that TI is out and about.

  • JustSaying

    I got it, Tiny's tits are WAY to big for that dress. She just looks odd TO ME. All upper body and no lower half or something.

  • Krysi – yes the same one

    breast milk is heavy boo

  • http://mskimba412.blogspot.com ms.kimba412

    @opinionted - I thought that was Pharrell, too!
    Tiny is gorgeous pregnant, and I love the the fact that she stands by her man. Nice pics.

  • BLACKBARBIE404

    i'm so tired of tiny running her raggedy a-s-s around looking raggedy like a hot a-s-s mess! If you gone be with one of the hottest rappers, she needs to step it up. Not saying she got to be perfect, but you can tell he's not proud to be standing next to her raggedy low rent looking behind. A man wants to be represented with a beautiful well manicured woman, and she's not giving him that. She don't have to look perfect, but dammit, i know she can do much better than this. Damn raggedy a-s-s! She look like a freakin fool idiot in that get up. It's just down right embarrasing. Country a-s-s!

  • ms.peaches

    Krysi... I swear I almost pissedd on myself don't post anymore comments today I mean it (lmao)!!!!

  • kitty4shigady

    I don't know what pictures you looking at but he looks likes he is very into her. If he was not proud to have her on his arm I think he would have split long time ago Tip love him some tiny and I think its great.

    @ mimi08

    Shut the hell up! and learn to appreciate when two people are strongly in love with one another. (not just onse side) dummy. Maybe if you were not so daggone bitter about Tiny being so adored by her man so much, you just might have found someone to love and appreciate you..*Laughing*

  • aqtpie

    LOL@the comments, they do make a cute couple and it's obvious they love each other.

  • luxe.li.

    Tiny looks fine, people always look better in person than in pictures, lighting and angels don't do everyone justice. Everyone is on the outside looking in.

  • luxe.li.

    and TIP's eyes are so low.....

  • http://rbtf.blogspot.com RBTF Angella

    @ luxe.li.

    "TIP's eyes are so low.." I don't get it *thinking*

  • mjoylaw

    Tiny's loyalty makes some of us look like quitters **clears throat and looks around** anyways, I wish them all the love in the world and Tip I hope you will remain committed and even consider marriage because this young lady truly loves you and she deserves all your love in return......

  • mjoylaw

    um, not to be tacky but Tip must have it going on, um, in more ways than one the way Tiny done stuck by him......best wishes to the whole Harris fam

  • mjoylaw

    damn, Cee lo look like a big azz short azz OH NO...

    The guy from College Hill look more so than a 3 dollar bill...feel me..he ain hardly tryna kiss that girl whoever she is

  • mjoylaw

    Um, last comment, just keepin it real, Tiny does look a little crazy in that dress and she COULD use a stylist but somehow it's working for her here..must be her complete happiness and clear spirit that's shining through to overpower the H.A.M. factor...all the love in the world baby girl:)

  • mzzphateegirl@yahoo.com

    the Monica pic is so cute i want it, lol

  • Krysi – yes the same one

    @ Mrs. Peaches, sorry girl Blackbarbie started me up! LOL!
