revealed an official photo from The Dungeon Family’s GQ feature article via BigBoi.com
earlier this morning.
As you know, I posted a few behind the scenes photos HERE that caused quite a bit of flack amongst a few DF member that weren’t quite UP on their social media game.
One DF member who from this moment on shall forever remain nameless on this site, popped off at the mouth about me posting the pics, but got shut down when I came back at him.
I was seriously feeling some kinda way about the situation, being as though I’ve supported these knee-grows even when they’re sitting at home doing nothing.
So… after a slew of apologies from dayum near everyone except the one who shall forever remain nameless, I’ve decided to lift my ban because I know in my heart One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show.
But I digress…
The full article will be available on newsstands in a few days, October 28th to be exact.

Clifford “T.I.” Harris is hot on the promo trail for his first fictional novel, Power & Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Street
, but he recently revealed he’s already on to the (next) next one.
T.I. tells XXL magazine that he’s almost finished with part 2 of “Power & Beauty,” after which he and wife Tiny will pen a book offering advice for couples interested in maintaining a successful relationship.
“We’re right at the end of Power & Beauty II right now. We’re trying to figure out how to end two and begin three,” says the Rubberband Man.
“Tameka and I, we looking to do a his and her relationship book, how to get right and keep it tight.”
Would you take relationship advice from Tip and Tiny? They’ve definitely kept it together longer than most, so it may not be a bad idea.
I’m sure there will be a long chapter on lending your man a hand and holding him down while he’s locked up… but those are really just common sense items.
What’s a good title for Tip & Tiny’s upcoming relationship manual?

The singer famously split from Brown in 2009 after he attacked her in his sports car, leaving her battered and bruised.
