T.I. Got Candid About His Son, King Harris’, Recent Behavior
The “King of the South” didn’t shy away from sharing his thoughts about his son’s recent behavior — many instances of which, have gone viral on social media. And portray a more reckless side of the teenager.
I love him through it — whatever he going through, I love him through it. And I can’t say he a great kid enough.
The rapper went on to explain that the media doesn’t highlight enough of the positive accomplishments of his son. And instead, cover more of the negative stories.
But the media don’t talk enough about the good part… All they do is focus on the bad because it gets them more clicks. And he’s young so I try to make him more aware of that.
T.I. went on to explain that he rather accept his son as he is. Then force him to fit inside his expectations of him.
I just try and walk him through it. But he gets better every day.
The rapper even shared a reminder for other parents quick to criticize.
We all got bada** kids!
Social Media Reacts To T.I.’s Thoughts About His Son And His Behavior
Many viewers of the clip had mixed reactions to T.I.’s thoughts. Some agreed with the rapper’s stance and applauded his accomplishments as a parent.
He has 6 kids and only one of them is problematic, 1 out of 6 ain’t bad AT ALL!
U can raise your kids to be perfect but they still gone do what they wanna do.. so I agree with him ..
Y’all act like y’all don’t have bad ass kids around y’all, no matter what they parents do or say they going to rebel. Stop blaming the parents for what these grown ass kids do. No matter how much you try , kids going to try to prove you wrong. Stop acting like y’all really know this man
While others continued to criticize him and King.
I promise you if Deja did half the mess that boy did Tip would disown her
He acts the way he does because his parents don’t hold him accountable
We just want him to stop acting like he’s so hood and he got it out the mud when he was born literally with a silver spoon in his mouth and lived in a gated community.
