Hopefully everyone had a joyful Holiday. I bought my mom a TV for Christmas and my niece is here from Jamaica so she helped me assemble the TV stand before the delivery guy delivered the TV. We had Big fun this Christmas.

The same can also be said for the Clifford "T.I." Harris household. T.I. released this video to give a Christmas shout out to all his fans - and to deny the rumors of artists jumping ship at his label. "Contrary to popular belief, there is nobody jumping ship off Grand Hustle - that is unless they wasn't built to be on Grand Hustle in the first place," said T.I. in a video posted on his Streetcred.com social networking site.

I'm told T.I. is in the Christmas spirit this year. He personally decorated not one, but 3 big Christmas trees in his spacious Jonesboro home this Holiday season. As his children play in the background, T.I. says he assembled all the toys and bikes for his kids with his own hands. Something he has never done until this year.

As you know T.I. is under house arrest with strict rules limiting the number of adult visitors to 3 at a time. But there is no such restriction on children. So T.I. can have a house full of kids whenever he wants to - and he often does as celebrities bring their children over to play with T.I.'s kids.

Shout out to Tiny who will make a doctor's visit next month where "someone" will learn the sex of her baby! Also big shout out to Zonnique ('Nique 'Nique) I heard you! :) Merry Christmas to T.I., Tiny, Zonnique, Diane and everyone in the Harris and Cottle families!

    Praise Jesus!!!! House arrest is turning out to be a good thing for him. I'm not going to worry about his criminal case on this blessed day. It gave my heart joy to hear that he assembled all his children's toys for the first time and he gets to be there with them through it all. I have no doubt his family is becoming closer and stronger with him being there 24 hours a day. That is a blessing. This may not be an ideal situation for him, but it is certainly ideal for his family and family is more important than everything else. Second only to God.

    Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

    I guess Tiny MEAN she gon' give that man another baby! Congrats to them and hopefully this baby will be healthy! Merry Christmas to them all!

  • WeezysBaby

    Congrats to the Brady bunch and I hate that he had to make it known this is his first time ever assembling some toys and bikes for HIS kids.. Well isn’t that what a father is suppose to do anyway?? And why does he have to always answer to the rumors let the truth speak for itself.

  • ms.peaches

    I'm so glad that he's able to be there with his family I'm sure they are enjoying every moment of it!! If it were not for the house arrest he probably be doing shows or on the road, that maybe why he said this was his first year able to do the things for his kids!! that's really a blessing because he could have been in jail for Christmas but it worked out to where he is home with his family even though he can't go anywhere I know it's killing him but he's able to spend more time with his kids, his wifey, & the rest of the family!!!

    Merry belated Christmas. I really couldn't see the video, it was to dark. Sandra your postings be killing me. Did you have to broadcast that this is first time doing things for his kids?!!! We all know that he is a rap artist but even he have time to **** other chicks and make a thousand mixtapes...I'm pretty sure he could have found time to build a bike hell he even build a BEAR...he has to be a house arrest to find times for these things:)!!!

    You really know how to make a good thing seem staged!!!

  • WeezysBaby


    those are my thoughts exactly and you stated he even had time to build a bear LOL LMAO!!!!!

  • sugarandkisses

    I couldnt see the video either really. It's good to see TIP in the holiday spirit. Being at home on house arrest is way better than being in jail Im sure. God Bless him and his family on this holiday season. I am a HUGE TIP fan and love his work. I am disappointed to hear about the 3 adult visitor rule cause I was looking for that house the next time I was in GA! LOL!! Just joking...Congrats on there new bundle of joy. I pray that TI & Tiny has a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby. :)

  • PaigeyWaigey

    You know what it's all good that he has turned into the celebrity BABYSITTER for his block, and that he FINALLY acts like a father by putting together his kids toys...I hope he can continue to be this good-doing if he is found not guilty...

    wow. i still am on tip's side with this whole case. he is right...things that happen, and slow u down, test u and build character. instead of being bitter he is getting better and i hope he remembers this when things get better or possibly worse. this thing may have needed to happen to him in order for him to reasses his life, where it was going, the things he was doing to see what really mattered the most. he can't run around...he HAS to stay in the house. he has time to only think and love his family and future wife Tiny...that woman has been down for him for the longest! that is a good thing for the king of the south. i'm happy that he is well. God bless...from one of the GH interns... :)
    p.s. if tip woulda seen a woman get jacked up in a corner just like darius (the personal trainer) he would have saved her too. he's only 5 foot 4 but he's MAN yall.
