During a recent photo shoot for In Touch magazine, a photographer's assistant presented Tip "T.I." Harris with a collection of Cosby-esque Coogi sweaters to choose from. T.I. flatly refused to wear the sweaters (can you blame him?) Instead, the rap entrepreneur (who is affectionately called "Tip" by family and friends) settled on a sweater that more reflects his personal style.
T.I.'s hit reality show, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle on VH1 has been compared to the fictional Huxtable family of the 90s hit Cosby Show. But T.I., who is father to 6 children (spread out over 3 households), sees no comparison to the Huxtables.
“It’s flattering, though I like to think of us as a unique piece of our society! The Huxtables are more conservative, older and from a different environment. But we share unity, strength and prominence.”
From In Touch:
T.I. says it was his family whose support got him through his 10 months behind bars.
“I went to see him every week and the kids talked to him all the time,” “Tiny” tells In Touch.
And though it’s a handful with six kids from the age of 4 to 16, T.I. is enjoying the domestic world. “It’s chaotic — but if it wasn’t, it’d be boring!”
