Tip “T.I.” Harris and R&B singer Marissa attended Spotify’s Open House Mixer at The Gathering Spot Private Club in Atlanta last night.

The rap mogul arrived with his son King Harris, who turns 13 on AUg. 25. All parents have a favorite child who is lavished with more attention, food and toys than the other kids. For Tip Harris, that child is King Harris.

The precocious youngster shocked T.I.’s adult fans last year when it was revealed his girlfriend was 16!

Marissa is an Atlanta R&B singer who dropped a single, “I’m Ready”, with Diggy Simmons last year.

Remember little R&B singer Sammie? He’s 30 now and is still dabbling in music. His first hit single was “I Like It” in 1999.

    Wait what…a 12 year old with a 16 year old girlfriend?? Ion like it…to even be acknowledging this girl as a girlfriend implies that they actually spend time together and this is more than just talking on the phone. I’m really starting to question the way these rappers in the south think. You would think a parent would want better for their children then what they had in all areas not just the financial….oh and I don’t think King is the favorite; he’s jsut the most “in your face” child they have. He’s very headstrong (I watch the show) and if there’s something he wants to do he does it…even if his parents say no (at first)….so I assume the boy wanted to go to this party and that’s why he’s there.

  • Browneyes

    I do not like that white tee on T.I.

  • Dee

    LOL, he does look like a little girl!!

  • On the radar….

    Never heard of Marissa, have to check out her single. King lil ass is a trip!

  • On the radar….

    Mine too!

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    Sammie, please trim that fro off your face, bruh!

  • On the radar….

    I have a younger cousin who was 17 and got pregnant by a 14 year old. Lil dummy (not you). You’d be surprised how common it is. Gross..

  • Peter Piper ATL

    OK, I’m still on the “more food” part. LOL!! I wouldn’t be surprised if Tip and Tiny were rationing portions.

    I can’t say anything bad about King even if I don’t like his parents anymore. He’s been pretty much raising himself the last 13 years, so what can be expected of him? But is he purposely trying to look like Da Brat?

    T.I. is once again battling that middle aged spread. Marissa? Clearly, he’s hitting that.

    I heard she pops pills so she’s with the right fella if that’s the name of the game.

  • On the radar….

    A bit snug around the tummy, huh ?

  • On the radar….

    Not too fond of dudes wearing t’s and jean shorts one size too small. Why???

  • Peter Piper ATL

    So he’s Sammie again, huh? I recall him going by his middle and last name–Leigh Bush–awhile back. If my name was Leigh Bush, and spelled the way it sounds, I think I’d stick with Sammie.

    He always looks fantastic. He needs to come on out that closet though because we was waiting on him at the door. LOL.

    The pink shoes are doing too much and making him look very pansy-ish.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Dear Sammie, the beard is a No for me, but hey! just my opinion.

  • SDot

    WHat happened to Sammie!?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I still have my Sammie CD from back in the day. He can still get it.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I wish I could down vote this crap. I don’t get gay from Sammie at all. I don’t see the issue with his salmon colored MENS pumas either. Not every black male celebrity is gay . Thanks. I’m not in denial either I’ve been calling gay dudes out since 98.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    King and the Younger kids are not raising themselves. Their grandmother Ms. Diane is raising them, everyone knows this. Tiny was too busy chasing Top informant ass all over ATL.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Ms. Diane and her dearly departed husband did an excellent job raising those kids with Love and empathy.

  • Keira

    King belong to Bimmy Atney. Debs brother. Go look him up. Check his pics from early days. KIngs Twin TIny and TI secret. Lol

  • The Chosen One

    Sammy is now legged like he!!. He couldn’t win a pig catching event or run a marathon. His legs would get tangled.

  • chelle

    Sandra you so wrong to say King is T.I. favorite child, that man is close to all his kids. He is out this his 2 older boys all the time, he is out with his daughter all the time, he goes on and on about how smart Major is and we all know how he feels about the new baby. Why would you say King is the favorite. People write anything to just put something out there

  • ??LordHell2TheNaw??

    I’m bout to say it? He hella ugly!.whew..ill go to hell gladly cause yall know its true….

  • 4RGSpot

    ???

  • 4RGSpot

    King look just like Tiny. He’s a teenager now…..wow!

  • Queen B

    Lmao ?

  • Moon Lee

    King attends public school, in Henry County. His parents are very down to earth, and he seems to be really grounded. So be nice….

  • unknown user

    King is bad as all hell. I’d love to have him as a nephew. Hilarious. He could come over and hang out for a few hours and then I’d send his ass straight back to his momma!

  • unknown user

    Don’t you start! My friend from Florida told me she use to see Sammy looking dusty as hell at the grocery store all the time. Kroggers, I believe it was.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    LOL!!!
    I am dead serious. I always thought Sammie did not give him any money or something. He lived in the same complex I lived in & I was broke at he time. Cheap & Hood.
    But, he was/is real proud of Sammie. Real Proud!

  • Vikki

    I have always felt that way ?
