We’ll get to see the inner workings of the famous family as they adjust to life after Tip’s recent release from prison, as well as witness the family’s resolve to move past the drama…
I got six kids and my old lady depending on my hustle. I can’t make one single mistake.
Now that I’m back home, I’m going to make sure that we’re bigger and better than we ever were before.
T.I. acknowledges he made mistakes that affected his family, but resolves to do whatever it takes to make his clan bigger and better than they ever were before:
As a hip-hop artist, I’m a hustler. Period.
It’s never been a question in my talent, never been a question of my work ethic, only my ability to make sound decisions.
America, listen: I was in prison. True. I did my time. Now I’m out. Now let’s never discuss this again. Ok?
I’ve got a million and one reasons to be out doing what I do professionally but, the most important thing to me in the world… is family.

While Tiny doesn’t talk much about Tip’s lock up either, she acknowledges the fact that his absence affected their family.
“Tip’s missed out on a lot being gone, and he’s got a lot to catch up on,” she stated. “Everything he got back, he could lose again. And this time it’ll be forever.”
Tip has pledged, though, that he’s going to stay out of trouble by keeping his family first and helping his kids achieve their dreams.
“Coming back home isn’t as easy as you think it would be,” said T.I., who at one point scolds his kids for playing booty tag and sitting in the white room. But he isn’t always such an authoritarian. The Grand Hustle head also takes time to encourage his children and teach them how blessed they actually are.
“No matter how long it took for me to get it right, as long as I get it right, it’ll never get wrong again. At the end of the day, the most important thing to me in the world: God, family, hustle. In that order.”
