T.I. has reported to prison as a married man! Word on the street is that he and Tiny finally tied the knot during in a private ceremony in Miami last weekend. A source close to the couple revealed, “All I am allowed to say is that T.I. and Tiny are officially husband and wife.” This is the first marriage for both, who have a total of 5 kids (two kids together, and three from T.I.’s previous relationships).
The private ceremony was an intimate affair held in Miami a couple of weeks ago and presented to the public as the couple’s getaway before T.I. fulfills his a-year-and-a-day sentencing for carrying illegal firearms back in 2007. The intimate affair was attended by close family members and select members of Grand Hustle, the rapper’s label imprint. (via Essence)
Congratulations to the happy couple! I guess since they’re officially married, Tiny can drive down to Arkansas and give him a piece every now and then while he’s away. Good lookin out…
*Update* ~ Sister2Sister Magazine is disputing Essence’s source. T.I.’s publicist, Sydney Margetson, reached out to the mag and states that the news is “absolutely not true.” (via Sister2Sister). My thoughts? Well…if they ain’t they should be, but since they’re not I’m moving on.
In a bittersweet performance, T.I. held his farewell concert Sunday night at Atlanta’s Philip’s arena. As he was surrounded by his family and friends Tip held down the stage for over 2 hours while performing for a sold out venue. As I post this, the superstar is headed to Arkansas where he is to report to prison to serve his jailtime on weapons charges by noon today. At Sunday’s concert, Tip told told the crowd not to worry and stated “I’ll see you in 366 days” as he left the stage.
Maino & Lil Duval
Lil Duval hosted the show and had me cracking me up on twitter:
Chicago Larry is back! I know ya’ll remember me telling you he’s on a mission to secure his own spot on TV…well, this time he’s dragged Trey Songz into one of his hilarious videos. Larry and Trey chopped it up for a bit and he even got Trey to sing a verse acapella. Yet again, Larry’s proved that he is television ready. Get ready to laugh!
I’m playing catch up on my posts, but in case you haven’t already seen em around, check out photos from Keyshia Cole’s Brand New Me Tour that hit Atlanta last week. Keri Hilson, The Dream, Monica and more performed while Ciara was spotted chillin in the audience.
Check out a few photos:

As the man in the red pinstripped suit and white tee tells you at the beginning of this classic video, “Atlanta is the capital of the DANCE…We started this here and we’re gonna finish it here.” We may get clowned by all you northerners who just don’t get it, but ATLiens have been making up dances way before SouljaBoyTellem was born.
I catch a ton of flack for riding hard with Mr. Collipark’s mini me. But regardless of what y’all think or say, SouljaBoy is one talented individual and a muthaf*ckin MARKETING GENIUS! Hate on haters… but I digress.
Crunk, Yeekin,’ Bankhead bouncin, Two-Steppin, Birdwalking….we’ve had it all. I know y’all can recall the old days of sweating it up on Bankhead Highway (one block away from where T.I. posted Club Crucial) at ‘The Silver Fox” or over on Gresham at Sharon’s Showcase, or waaaaay back when you’d hit up Greenbriar Skating Rink. Well, the clip above will probably refresh your memory. It showcases Atlanta’s wide array of dances in a classic dance off competition. Our music & beats were meant to move to. It’s addictive so there’s no use in fighting it. Y’all northerners can try to catch up but it’s useless…we’re already two-steppin ahead of ya!
