(AllHipHop News) Tip “T.I.” Harris has faced significant backlash this week over his parenting decisions. The Grand Hustle leader admitted that he attends his daughter’s gynecologist visits to ensure that the 18-year-old girl is still a virgin.
T.I. is clearly very concerned about his child’s sexual practices and her potentially getting pregnant. While it is not an immediate family issue, some people may wonder how he would react to finding out that a woman on his label is carrying an unexpected child.
“I think I announced it in July on Instagram, but I told him a few months before that. But I didn’t really want to tell him,” said Grand Hustle rapstress Tokyo Jetz in an interview with DJ Smallz.
She continued, “When I did decide to tell him, he was like, ‘Somebody already told me. I was just waiting on you to tell me.’ He was basically like, ‘I’m with you, regardless, whatever you wanna do. And we’re gonna make it work.”
Female recording artists sometimes face pushback in the music industry when they decide to take time off to have children. Lauryn Hill famously addressed that dilemma on her classic 1998 song “To Zion” featuring Carlos Santana.
