T.I started 2019 as one of the honorees at the Trumpet Awards, and most of his kids were there to support him in such a special occasion. The Atlanta native rapper melted hearts with an only-boys pic featuring his sons, and their resemblance is uncanny.
T.I is the proud dad of seven kids, four of which he shares with wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris. However, the Xscape singer has accepted the other three as if they were her own, and the Harris family is known in the entertainment industry for their incredible bond and hilarious dynamic.
Messiah, 19, Domani, 17, Clifford “King,” 14 and Major, 10 are already giving their father a run for his money in the department of looks.
In the shot, taken at the Trumpet Awards’ reception, held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, the rapper poses with Messiah, who could easily pass as his twin, King and Major, all wearing their best suits and looking dapper for the pic.
Domani was not present, but T.I made sure to mention him in his caption, which read:
“Legacy. -1 ( @domaniharris1 )”
Fans of the “Family Hustle” stars took over the comment section to gush about the good-looking boys, with most agreeing they all have a strong resemblance and others praising T.I for raising “kings.”
“@203__mia: Can’t believe we watch them grow into young men god bless. Raising kings.”
“@sandrap247: You’re a blessed man with very handsome sons. Glad to see you doing right by them. #strongblackmenforourfuture.”
“@makayladantavious: @troubleman31 they are growing up to be very handsome young men!!! Strong genes, I know you are proud.”
The boys were not the only ones present at the event, as proved by Tiny Harris who shared a pic with all of the girls of the family in one shot: Zonique Pullians, 22, Deyjah, 17, and baby Heiress Diana, 2. T.I’s mother, Violeta Morgan, is also in the pic.
Tiny also shared a family pic with some of the kids, as she posed side to side to her husband wearing a strapless black dress that hugged her body enhancing her curves in all the right places.
“Family out tonight in honor of my handsome husband @troubleman31 as he’s the first to receive the Xernona Clayton Trumpet Award! Congratulations My Luv...” she captioned the pic.
The Xernona Clayton Award is an honor presented to “individuals who, having succeeded against immense odds, herald change, and prosperity to enhance and enrich the world.”
T.I was recognized for his charitable work and his efforts to make of Atlanta a better place through his scholarship partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs, and his work with troubled youth in the city.
Last Christmas, Harris made surprise visits to the Egleston Children’s Hospital, Doctor Daycare, and the John Lewis Invictus Academy middle school football team to deliver gifts for the kids through his non-profit organization, Harris Community Works (HCW).
He’s also on the lead of a real state project to offer people of the community where he grew up, the possibility of owning affordable homes in the city they love. He has spent about $2.7 million since 2017 to buy six properties and plots of land in Center Hill.
Talking to Inc. magazine last November he explained:
“One of the smaller residential projects will hopefully be ready by the end of 2019. We're aiming to complete a larger development--more than 100 units--around the same time. I'm working with a seasoned real estate agent, Krystal Peterson, to ensure prices are within the range of what people who live in the neighborhood can pay.”
“So many times, our answer to fixing things is "I'm gonna make some money and leave all these people behind." There's rarely an intent to get rich and make where you came from better for generations to come. It's extremely ambitious, but I've worked myself to a place where I should be the one leading the charge. In my mind, that's what it means to be king.”
