T.I. Harris is still waiting for an apology from the homeowner's association at his wife's gated community just south of Atlanta. The 37-year-old rapper and a friend wee cuffed and thrown into the backseat of a squad car after arguing with a security guard who refused to let him into the affluent Eagles Landing Country Club in Stockbridge, Ga.

In an interview at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C. on Monday, the Trap music rapper said he shouldn't have to use his fame to command respect from a lowly security guard.

"What matters is I'm a resident in that community. I pay my homeowner's association fees. I shouldn't have to be a celebrity to be considered. I have rights. They (security) work for us (the community). It's their job to know who I am.

"It isn't my job to say, 'Do you know who I am?'"

When a reported suggested T.I.'s outspoken politics and social justice activism were to blame for his arrest, he replied, "I think it's a premature conclusion to jump to, and it would be very presumptuous to say so. I don't know, it could just be an isolated incident," he said.

T.I. revealed he had yet to receive an apology from the homeowner's association at the gated community were his wife purchased a mansion in 2014. After a period of separation, the rapper moved into the home with Tameka and their children.

His 10,400 sq. ft., $4 million Lake Spivey mansion, where the family's reality show was taped, sits nearly vacant a few miles away.

T.I. was released on bond, but is facing simple assault, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness charges in court.

He attended the 2018 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday.

    He is dressed like a sharp azz slow kid. Otrhopaedic shoes, slightly ruffled/wrinkled blouse, ill fitting dress pants, and a super fitted fitted. That boy is sharp.

    He will be waiting on that apology...

  • justlooking

    Well maybe after he takes the blouse off, they will issue an apology.

  • iWasteTime

    He needs an apology and ASAP!
    That chit was crazy.


    Kanye still waiting for TI to apologize to him, for talking shit about him to get likes!

  • Renee26

    Sir, excuse me sir... You had no key so therefore you apparently don't live there...don't hold your breath waiting on that apology. The guard did his job... You sir are the lowly one here

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    “It isn’t my job to say, ‘Do you know who I am?'”

    And I think this is why he's BIG mad.
    The unmitigated gall of this troglodyte treating him like some uncouth peon.

    For shame....


  • imright

    he aint gettin one. ??

  • Toni Toni Toni

    What in da heck made him choose that particular outfit. ISSA NO....

    He usually gets sharp when he dresses up.

    He probably won't be getting not NAN apology from them folks. But they will happily take his money tho.

  • stav

    He looks real goofy!

  • iWasteTime

    After their collab?

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_
  • Gloria

    He'll be waiting forever

  • zero options

    an apology from a "homeowners association"?
    jesus will be back before he gets an apology.
    H.A. are made up of stuck up, righteous, arrogant, entitled a holes.
    they have to approve what color you paint your house, your landscaping,
    in some cases what time you can put out the trash can, if you can park in the street.
    at least they're not prejudiced, they treat everyone equally $hi77y

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    I don't think he's gonna get an apology anytime soon. I really like TI, but that outfit is a big NO NO lol.

  • pure_rachet

    maybe you should LOG OFF NOW!

  • Logan Roberts

    I was with him until he left and came back, you were looking for trouble sir ?

  • pure_rachet

  • OvertheMississippi

    He’d better stay in Clay Co, Fulton, and Dekalb with his foolishness. Henry County having it!!!!

  • Reina1718

  • FukkFolks2018

    You look cray Cliff but I agree with you

  • Roxie Moxie

    LMAO!!!--------->> Here are some seats for you....._ _ _

  • Marlika

    His ignorant ass doesn’t deserve an apology nor does he have a case. Phuck him!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I agree with him

  • Blak

    No the problem was that he went through he CAME BACK because he got into his feelings, was drunk and had a sense of privileged...that's why a black man called the police on him. He is a disgrace, not an activist, and speaks for himself

  • KcoolMuziq

    T.I.(whom I met and it was a pleasure) as U can tell is BUFFING up.

    He has now challenged Floyd Mayweather Jr to a BOXING MATCH ON SHOWTIME!

  • Shawty

    I was looking at that. I have one JUST like it. I stared at it saying it can't be...lol.

  • Shawty

    Really...only to get his head beat in. Hopefully Mayweather takes it easy on him if he accepts.

  • Banka

    Wow Tip, you can't even boycott this time homie .....

  • justlooking

    I challenge him to sword fight with Zorro. He is dressed for it.

  • BadAss Will

    Isn't that tiny personal house? Didnt she buy it on her own when she left T.I. if he was living there he'll have a gate remote or code. So the security was doing his job. This midget is worst than Kanye.

  • Missy

    Sit down Clifford. Indian style.

  • AndSo

    This narcissistic fool needs to sit down.

  • ImWoke

    Sorry T.I, I don’t think that you will be receiving an apology.

  • Bonita

    That nicca looks silly in that mariachi band shirt. And what's even sillier is his goofy lookin azz probably paid at least a stack for that tacky mess.

  • Peace

    TIP is a good dude. He gives to the needy and takes cares of his family and cares about his community and people .
    He's had some tough timez, best friend gunned down, gun arrest etc. But he gotta learn when to pop off. He was clearly wrong for leaving his residence and returning to the guard shack.

    Why not posts it on his Twitter or gram? He wasn't discriminated against. Just a community misunderstanding.

  • Ajavee

    T. I. needs to quit he is not getting an apology from anyone.

  • Ajavee


  • Ajavee

  • NeverSurprised

    I didn't think it was possible, but he is now rivaling 50 Cent and Tyrese in terms of public buffoonery.

  • bella28498 .

    Don't hold and wait on it tip

  • Logan Roberts

    Tip has on Zonnique's blouse ?

  • MJ

    This. He could have just spoken to the supervisor in the morning, but him and his idiot friend wanted to press the guy.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Dude if you don't go sit your action figured body self down. You left and came back WITH BACKUP. He did right to call the police. No apology needed, Sir, and no one's getting fire. Carry on. To avoid future bs, now the officer will have to be re-assigned to another post.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    DEAD. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS Tiny. Smize on dem hoes.

  • Sweetness

    ??? Nail on head. I live in a cul de sac. And the H.A. ride round this piece like gangstas???. Told us "no cars on the street" in a real nice naaaaaasty way. Smile turnt up...eyes turnt down. #picturethat

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I'm not familiar with it, but I believe from what I read the security guard was doing his job. He was probably new, didn't know TI from squat and asked him for ID.

  • the guest

    This is between him and Tiny because she didn’t want him to come in drunk at 4am. If she really wanted him to come in she would went and got him. T.I. is too arrogant to bring himself to believe Tiny left him outside.

  • Trey

    cmon Cliff

  • Blue

    What in the Burlington Coat Factory do we have on here?

  • tisha

    I'm a fan of T.I. but everybody don't know who you are and once you was let in the community you should have layed down and handled it properly in the morning. Everything is not race related!

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    You have to be at least my age or an old soul to say "troglodyte!". I love it!!!


    He needs to sit down because he's starting to look old, crazy and stupid.


    Can you express yourself without making fun of people with disabilities. You are no better than TI. Slow kid. Really - By that comment I need to know are you slow?

  • Brazen Beauty

    To T.I. and the rest of the commentators, this entire conversation made my day, sometimes all we have to do is read the comments on Sandrarose.com and they will make you LMAO. T.I. if only I could get a glimpse of that rufftle shirt.

  • Brazen Beauty
