His Early Life

As earlier mentioned, T.I. was born Christopher Joseph Harris, Jnr. to Violeta Morgan and Clifford “Buddy” Harris Sr. on September 25, 1980, in Atlanta Georgia. He began rapping at the age of 8 with the moniker Tip.

He dropped out of Douglas High School to focus on his music career. Launching a music career didn’t come easy for T.I, immediately after dropping out of school, young T.I began selling drugs and soon he got arrested for it.

In his early drug dealing days, he earned the name “Rubber Band Man” which originated from his habit of wearing rubber bands around his waist which reflected the amount of money he made from selling drugs. The nickname was later adapted in one of his songs.

In 1996, he got to know a local rapper who was known as Big Kuntry King. Together, they started selling mixtapes out of a car trunk. It was during this time that T.I. was discovered by Kawan ‘KP’ Prather, a record executive. Kawan offered him a chance to sign under his label Ghet- O-Vision Entertainment. This marked the beginning of his successful career in music.

Tiny has remained T.I.’s wife since they got married on the 30th of July 2010 but they nearly parted ways in 2016.

Tameka Filed for the Annulment of their Marriage in 2016

Sometime in December 2016, the same year they welcomed their daughter Heiress, Tiny dragged T.I. to court. It circulated that she was asking for a divorce but it was more than that, she wanted her marriage to the rapper annulled.

What inspired the move has been largely left to speculations but it is no secret that they worked things out. It is believed that the heartfelt tribute the rapper shared on Tiny’s birthday in 2017 helped to retrigger their passion.
