Mo'Nique's new Netflix stand-up comedy special is in the works after settling a lawsuit with the streaming giant.

Netflix announced the new comedy special in a tweet on Tuesday.

"Thrilled to announce that Netflix is the home for the next original stand-up special from the groundbreaking, trailblazing, and iconic Mo'Nique!"

"Can y'all believe this s---?," Mo' asks in a new video. "I done came on home to Netflix."

According to Variety, the comedy special will be filmed later this year in Atlanta.

In June Netflix announced a settlement agreement with the stand-up comedienne more than two years after she sued the streaming network for offering her less money for a stand-up special than her fellow male or white female counterparts.

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris may be the King of the South, but he is struggling at his second career as a comedian.

T.I. bombed during a standup comedy gig in New York. A loyal reader sent in the video below of the 41-year-old rapper struggling during a comedy show in Brooklyn over the weekend.

The audience laughed - but they were laughing at T.I., rather than with him.

Then the boos began filtering through the crowd. Boos are usually the kiss of death for a comedian.

Being a comedian isn't easy. T.I. is proof that having heart and ambition aren't enough to make it in comedy. Comedians have to be funny and they also need a good delivery and timing.

Steve Harvey's deadpan delivery made him an A-list star. He can joke about a laundry basket and the audience will roar with laughter. It's all in his delivery.

Tip "T.I." Harris (left) appeared to settle his differences with comedian Godfrey, who suggested the rapper should keep his day job after hearing his comedy routine.

Aspiring comedian T.I. ruffled a few feathers by asking veteran comedians to let him follow their headlining sets rather than open for them.

Apparently, T.I. doesn't think a superstar should have to follow anyone's act.

Several comedians took offense to the rapper bogarting their headlining sets. But only one comedian - Godfrey - spoke out publicly.

T.I. was outraged after Godfrey said he didn't take the rapper seriously as a comedian.

As the controversy escalated on social media, Nick Cannon, who hired Godfrey as a writer for his talk show, offered to arrange a meeting between T.I. and Godfrey to clear the air.

T.I. went straight for Godfrey's jugular when the two finally did hook up via live-stream.

"If you don't like it, come get me off stage then, if that's how you feel. Or let the crowd boo me off stage," the outraged rapper told Godfrey.

He added:

"I don't give a f*** how long you been doing it. I don't give a f*** what you gotdamn had to go through that I don't got to go through. That's yo' problem!"

In a later discussion, T.I. had a change of heart. A much calmer T.I. said:

"It's important for us to have this conversation publicly because it's a public matter. And it's important for the world to see Black men resolve our issues amicably."

He went on to say that his foray into comedy was simply a hand up to comedians who have been struggling to make it big.

T.I. suggested that there isn't enough money in comedy for him to take it seriously. He said that he's only helping comedians and not trying to eat off their plates.

Tip "T.I." Harris is apparently experiencing a midlife crisis. The Grammy Award-winning platinum rapper decided to try his hand as a stand-up comedian at age 41.

But his midlife career change as a comedian is not getting the support from other comedians who worked hard to achieve their success.

In fact, some veteran comedians are insulted that T.I. is doing stand-up comedy.

Veteran comedian Godrey spoke out disapprovingly after T.I. showed up at his comedy gig in Atlanta and asked to follow his headlining set. Godfrey said he didn't take the rapper seriously as a comedian.

"As a headliner, no one is supposed to go up after you. You're not a comedian to me," Godfrey said in a recent podcast.

Godfrey suggested that T.I. was using his clout to perform at popular comedy shows with no comedy experience.

Godfrey advised T.I. to work his way up by performing at open mic nights. He said that a comedian wouldn't show up at a rap concert asking to go on after the headliner.
 

 
Godfrey's criticism cut T.I. deeply.

In a video posted on his Instagram account, T.I. claimed he was invited to the comedy club by the owners, and he called Godfrey a dry hater.

Question: Should T.I. keep his day job?

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris debuted his stand-up comedy act at a comedy club in Atlanta recently. Cell phone video of T.I.'s comedy set surfaced online.

The father-of-seven cracked jokes about cheating men, smoking weed, and men with physical shortcomings.

T.I.'s wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris was in the audience and recorded her husband's set on her cellphone.

The crowd chuckled at his jokes and seemed to be entertaining by the King of the South.

It isn't clear if T.I. is considering shelving his rap career to go on a comedy tour.

He previously tried his hand at acting in ATL, Takers, American Gangster, and a reoccurring role in Marvel's first two Ant-Man films.

Question: Should T.I. keep his day job?

Watch his set below.
