Domani Harris is undoubtedly his father’s son in a recent video shared on social media, but even though T.I is very proud of the young man, he was forced to dish out a punishment recently.
Domani is T.I’s son with former reality star LaShon Thompson, and at 17, he is not only the spitting image of his famous father in looks, but he has also inherited the rapper’s talent for music and has been steadily building his career.
A couple of days back, Domani shared a short clip from a freestyling session he nailed.
The teenager looked laid-back in a black jacket and jeans worn over a white hoodie, but there was nothing casual about the lyrics he rapped from memory.
Social media users in the comments section had nothing but love and support for Domani’s efforts.
“TI raised a lyrical genius,” raved one user while another said:
“Bringing real hip-hop back with this one bruh.”
Domani first gained attention for appearing on the family reality series “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle” from 2011 to 2017. He released his debut EP, “The Constellation” the year the show wrapped up and has since been working on his craft. Most of his works are documented on his Instagram page where he has over 500,000 followers.
Earlier this year, T.I witnessed a proud parent moment when he and his son were nominated for the “Best Original Score Written for the Theatre” award at the 2018 Tony Awards.
The “Trap Muzik” rapper shared a photo of his son on the red carpet and penned an emotional tribute. T.I, 38, wrote a letter to his 17-year-old self and said:
“Nothing you do in life will ever bring you the satisfaction that you’ll get from witnessing your children do it sooner than you did. Congratulations son.”
Domani also called his father a “good teacher” in a July interview with Newsweek. The talented teen added that:
“What makes him different is that with all the stuff that he has going on, he still exceeds expectations with his work ethic, how many people he takes care of. He takes care of so many people. …I’ve been watching that my whole life.”
Despite the strong father-son bond, T.I is never one to spoil his kids and in a recent episode of “T.I. & Tiny: Family & Friends Hustle,” he punished Domani for throwing a party without his permission.
After scolding his son for the wrong action, T.I revealed the real punishment to viewers in a confessional.
“Although I didn’t kill him, what he didn’t know is, I had a brand new car waiting on him next week,” said the three-time Grammy winner. “And guess what, he didn’t get it. And he ain’t gon’ find out till right now.”
