Clifford “T.I.” Harris has finally admitted that he has a drug problem.

Tameka ‘Tiny” Cottle plead not guilty to one misdemeanor charge of possessing ecstasy.
Tiny entered the plea through her attorney yesterday in Beverly Hills.
As you know, Tiny and her hubby T.I. were arrested together in L.A. back in September [MUGSHOTS]. The D.A. elected not to prosecute T.I. after he received jail time for a probation violation stemming from the arrest.
