Clifford “T.I.” Harris graces the Jet Magazine for the week of August 9/16 2010.
In his exclusive interview with JET, Tip once again revisits his time in prison, discussing the books that sparked his elaborate vocabulary and why he reads the dictionary now on the regular. There was no mention of his wedding plans to longtime fiance, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, but of course he already addressed that the other day.
Clifford “T.I.” Harris is looking rather dapper in his grey three-piece suit! The rapper was suited and booted as he hosted a celebration in honor of his K.I.N.G. Camp’s 2010 graduating class.
Tip also took a moment during the festivities to sit down with Julia Harding of Atlanta’s Fox5 News where he addressed rumors of a weekend wedding ceremony. He danced around the question about the impending nuptuals between he and longtime girlfriend/baby mama Tameka “Tiny” Cottle:
“I am not at the liberty to discuss, confirm or deny any allegations. Don’t belive everything you read online or see on tv. I have never commented on such subjects and I never will.”
When asked if we’ll be seeing wedding band on his finger soon, Tip responds, “You may or may not see a lot of different things. I cannot confirm any of these things”
In the exclusive post-prison interview which aired yesterday, the rap star also talked about what’s behind him, what’s ahead and why prison made him angry. Continue Reading…
Two of Atlanta’s finest, Clifford “T.I.” Harris and Keri “Miss Keri Baby” Hilson, combine forces in “Got Your Back.” In the song, featured HERE previously on the “A” pod, Tip toasts his fiancée Tiny and salutes all the down “A”zz chicks who stick by their man through thick and thin.
Art imitates life in the new video for the song, as an actor plays an imprisoned man sustained by the love of a loyal lady back home. Of course this subject is near and dear to the heart of T.I., who spent much of 2009 behind bars on a weapons conviction. Tip honors his own real-life longtime love, former Xscape singer Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, in the clip as she makes a sweet cameo where she lovingly supports her boo.

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:
The real Keyshia Knight-Pulliam was spotted taking in the Atlanta Hawks v. Miami Heat game Sunday evening. The Hawks spanked the Heat in a 90 to 64 win to the pleasure of all in attendance. Check out a few courtside flix below:
