Sandrarose.com was the first to break the news that rap mogul T.I. “Tip” Harris signed a new record deal with Columbia Records.
Friend of the blog, Shawn “Tubby” Holiday, Columbia’s new SVP of Urban A&R, was instrumental in getting the deal done. Shawn is pictured above with T.I.
Music mogul Pharrell Williams will executive produce T.I.’s fist album on Grand Hustle/Columbia in early 2014. DJ Toomp and Timbaland will also produce the much-anticipated project.
T.I. and his imprint Grand Hustle Records parted ways with Atlantic Records earlier this year. The split was an acrimonious one.
Rap artist Clifford Harris, Jr., a.k.a. T.I., will be featured in multiple episodes on Showtime’s House of Lies, Rodney Ho of AJC’s Radio & TV Talk reports.
There is an unfounded rumor making the rounds that former Xscape singer Tameka “Tiny” Harris is pregnant with her fifth child (and T.I.’s 7th). This morning I reached out to Dianne Pope, Tiny’s mom, who denied the rumor.
Rapper Clifford “T.I.” Harris, aka Tip, celebrated his 33rd birthday with a private star-studded bash following the 8th Annual BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta on Saturday, Sept. 28. Celebrity guests included T.I.’s loverly wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris, singer and actress extraordinaire Brandy Norwood, T.I.’s artist rapper B.o.b, music producer Rico Love, rap mogul Sean “P.Diddy” Combs, actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, reality TV stars Erica Dixon, Mimi Faust, Nicci Gilbert, Shay Johnson, Dice Dixon, Mariah Huq, and KeKe Wyatt; V-103 Morning Show jock Ryan Cameron, Celebrity baby mamas Tameka Raymond and Monyetta Shaw, NBA baller Josh Smith, former reality TV star D. Woods, and more!
In last night’s episode of T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle, Tameka “Tiny” Harris‘s little brother Redd teaches dance moves to Tiny’s son, King Harris, 8, and her nephews, Jordan, 6, and Mikai, 5, so they can become official members of the legendary group The Tams. Sadly, Tameka’s beloved daddy, Charles Pope, the founding member of The Tams, passed away on July 11.
Thanks to Tameka’s mom, Dianne Pope, for inviting me and my mother to see The Tams perform live in 2009 before Mr. Pope left the group due to a terminal illness.
Also, T.I. takes his daughter Deyjah, 11, to a cooking school to learn how to bake cupcakes.
R&B singer Robin Thicke has filed a lawsuit to protect his single “Blurred Lines” from Marvin Gaye’s family and Funkadelic’s copyrights owners, reports the NY Post. Music producer Pharrell Williams and rapper T.I., real name Clifford Harris Jr., are also named as plaintiffs in the lawsuit. The Funkadelic’s rights owners claim there are similarities between “Blurred Lines” and a song they own the rights to.
Gaye’s family say “Blurred Lines” borrows heavily from Marvin’s hit single “Got to Give it Up.”
