TI Christmas

T.I. Harris surprised single moms at an Atlanta area Target by paying for electronics and toys for their children.

In a video posted on his Instagram.com page, the 37-year-old rapper is seen telling single moms to join him at the checkout counter. "Thank you, T.I!" says one excited mom.

After paying for purchases, the rapper said he had to leave quickly to catch a flight. But he said the single mothers helped him spend $20,000 in 30 minutes.

"Wish I could've came earlier,stayed longer & done more for more people. ( @delta got in our business) But still I'm blessed to be able to do anything I can for those in need. Merry Christmas to everyone who helped me thumb through 20k in 30mins. If I missed you... I'll catch up with you next year!!! Happy Holidays to all of you!!!! From me and mines, to you and yours... MERRY CHRISTMAS"

T.I. wasn't the only deep pockets rapper spreading Christmas cheer in Atlanta.

Rapper 21 Savage and his fiancée Amber Rose were also spotted spending thousands of dollars on families at an Atlanta Toys 'R Us over the holiday weekend.

  • Fred G sanford

    That’s a good look homie and god bless

  • TMW

    Amber looks like she’s either holding 21 Savage up, or helping him stay upright. ?

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Awesome

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    That's awesome of Clifford.

  • You Could Never

    Still not good enough for some. Still gonna be he should have gotten some books vs xyz. Nevermind for that amount Im sure a laptop or Chromebook or a computer was purchased.

    Im glad he did it.

  • shun king

    only bamboozled black people think this is something good,because they dont have the comprehension to understand that his music directly contributes to single mothers and black men going to prison living out HIS criminal vision that he propagate in his music...sorry if you a zombie and dont understand

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm sure the families appreciated it, especially thr children.

    I still don't like TI though.

  • ALLMINE?

    single mothers still have a fresh weave...

  • ALLMINE?

    black women really need to stop sleeping with no good niggas. having babies with dudes that have never worked..felons mommas boys etc.. its a continuous cycle..black folks don't value themselves.. have a baby with anybody it don't matter. lol

  • China

    The Mom's look nice!!! Minus the dead beat dad's! You sound like one of them deadbeat dad's missing in action!!! All up in someone's head!!!

  • China

    Why don't you give something to the needful!! I mean anything!!! What you got to give??? Other than flapping your gums????

  • Scromes1212

    That's dope. Doesn't seem staged. Seems like he was feeling some type of way and decided to pull up and help out. Salute that brother.

  • shun king

    see an ignorant the issue to deep for your understanding so you had to attack me to make yourself feel like you in the conversation

  • Soda

    So this store has a Single Mothers Only checkout or are you just guessing they all are?

  • klwbaby

    I thought that too but on the video he said "single mothers follow me to the back".

  • stav

    This is not a black women issue, it's a women's issue period! Stop perpetuating stereotypes. There is never one race , nationality or gender that one thing applies to only them.

  • Soda

    Oh, okay. I couldn't watch it on this piece of crap phone.

  • stav

    Although to some it may be a nice gesture! You give a man a fish you feed him for the day, you teach him how to fish, you feed him for life. These women need assistance (and to help themselves) that will benefit them and their children for the long run , not one day.

  • Nophace

    You forgot the word "Some" in your post. Meaning "SOME black women need to stop sleeping with no good niggas" and "SOME black folks don't value themselves......."

  • Nophace

    Its a good gesture. I just hope he's not using it as a tax write-off!

  • Ryan

    You are one miserable MF.

  • Bashi22

    Good Gesture indeed

  • Ryan

    Good job Tip.

  • Look@m3

    LOL, why you don't like TI???

  • hottlanta

    Do you have a problem with the major corporations tooting their horn to the public about the fake bonuses they were giving their employees when the tax bill was signed but didn't announce how much their salaries and bonuses will increase.. You don't question how many years will the employees continue to get a raise after they got their $15.00 an hour. Are you gonna insist that the employees also be tracked as to how long will they remain on the company payroll after they get those raises and if they are fired why was all of a sudden they were fired after the raises they quote to the public. Also, those executives spend more money on private escorts regularly. They will probably write that off as "fake employees raises and bonuses too.
    Not attacking your opinion just suggesting another one.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I didn't watch the video and perhaps this information was contained within.

    How do you all know the women's financial statuses? Did he tell them to meet them at the store or where they already there for the purposes of purchasing gifts for their children and they just so happened to be there when he was. I'm the first to acknowledge the issues within our community, but I just don't understand how some of you came to the conclusion that these are impoverished welfare recipients. I'm lost...

  • Li

    Wasn't he broke or owed the IRS a year ago?

  • TMW

    I honestly have a problem with anyone or any entity that does something for someone and then pounds on their chests and says “look what I just did.” Genuine giving comes from the heart with no expectation of getting something in return, or feeling the need to tell everybody you did something good. If you do all that, then the giving was for you, not someone else.

  • Li

    As much as I don't like the Kardashians, at least they date & marry (black) men with wealth. Of course, the women are already wealthy so it wouldn't matter.

  • shun king

    you can best believe the white judges have plenty of guys on pay child support or go to jail that helps them feed

  • shun king

    how you feel they dead beat they might be on child support paying it but the mom dont let them near they kids..

  • shun king

    sorry but ghetto minded black folks will never understanding what you are talking about

  • HelloToni

    That's awesome!

  • hottlanta

    You just wrote this verbiage below and calling other people ghetto. Saying "Near they kids". Your parents need a refund on that private school tuition.

  • Armymom20

    TIP!!!!!!!!!! good job man.

  • Ryan
  • my view

    why wouldn't he? isn't that what the whole "contribution" part is for on your taxes?

  • my view

    I believe every year he picks a store pays for the people in line. Hell i would have def let him pay for my stuff as well

  • Nophace

    The point was, if its simply for a tax write-off then its not out the goodness of his heart and means he was simply doing it for the write-off!!!!

  • You Could Never

    yeah, they clearly feel deeply about these toys and shoes, ROFL!!!

  • You Could Never

    And for why sis? Like it is Christmas.

    I'm not hear to perpetuate negative stereotypes but since I work with parents (often single minority women) who wish to obtain child support from the non custodial parent, I know I can speak factually. Black women are not choosing men that can atleast provide financially for their children. There are a myriad of issues why that happens (lack of education, criminal justice issues, lack of upstanding men in the community...) but the truth is the black household is struggling. I do not judge any custodial parent but when ppl decide to have children, a minimal criteria MUST BE met. Tyrone on the corner may be fine but he is not fit to procreate with. I love my ppl. My mom is black. It pains me to see the babies suffer. Please consider a man's financial means, his character and integrity BEFORE you procreate with them. This post is uploaded with much love.

    Only God knows a man's intent. Let's just celebrate his kind deed as those families received a blessing regardless of his intent.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    That is such a sweet gesture.

    somebody gotta be the Grinch, LOL!

  • Dahl

    That dress is particularly unflattering on Amber. But, it is nice to see her and others making those tax write-offs...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    In short, he's an azz and a fraud.

  • GuestSTAR

    Wait, huh, fiance?????? When?

  • Malcom Flex

    Yup FATHERLESSNESS is the shame of us Black people but a least a stand up man came through and did the right thing for another male's children even in my family I spent the most for those who have weak chumps for 'father's' who don't do shitz for their seeds.

    Bros. You don't want kids USE CONDOMS.

  • IamAllnatural

    Who said that ( in my Porsha voice)? I didn’t read anything about welfare recipients.

  • IamAllnatural

    What’s wrong with a tax write off? At least he did a great deed unlike most people!

  • kekeb

    LMAO. right. I need to find a student loan line and stand in it HARD

  • DidLEESquatTho

    I’m with you, I can’t stand ti. Nice gesture though.

  • http://newstoter.com/ Newstoter.com

    TI giving back to the community is a great thing.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    They're talking about leading whales to water, teach a man how catch a chicken hell be trying chicken forever. Talking about how the mother's have their hair done as if they are supposed to be looking raggedy due to their low incomes...

  • Phyllis

    This made me smile?. Kudos to T.I., 21, and Amber ..

  • Gone Too Far

    That can sometimes be the case

  • NicoleZee

    Please consider a man's financial means, his character and integrity BEFORE you procreate with him........

  • Guest©

    Those are add ons not corrections. By the time women seek child support they ofcourse already have children. My comment was based on that context (single mothers) as it relates to this post. Unfortunately, it does not matter that the state provides free condoms if people dont actually use them but I digress.

  • shun king

    more of attack the messenger and not the message thats all you can do

  • hottlanta

    Amber is werking that dress.

  • hottlanta

    A lot of companies have fund raising balls where people give money. You see them talking on shows like Entertainment Tonight. Are you saying the cameras doesn't need to be there.

  • TMW

    The company I work for allocates a billion dollars a year for charitable giving. And yes, because we are not-for-profit, we are required to do that. However we could milk that for all kinds of publicity - but we don’t.

  • She45

    Being a single does not imply that you are poor. The headline said single moms, not impoverished welfare recipients.

  • She45

    Who cares, you probably wouldn't do it either way. Stop hating, and go do something for your community.

  • Nophace

    I love when idiots like u speak when they have no idea what they're talking about. Your stupidity is appreciated!
