T.I. and his family starred in “Holiday Hustle Special,” an animated Christmas-centered program on VH1 yesterday (December 16). 

The special features T.I. and his family on a journey to rescue Santa Clause and the Christmas spirit.

In an interview with Loop 21, T.I. spoke about his work with reality television.

“It’s a look inside the lives of me and my family,” he said, speaking about his other program, The Family Hustle. “It gives insight into how I balance my personal and professional lives. I don’t like the term reality series because that word has a negative stigma. It discredits all the effort and energy I put into the show. We want to be taken seriously. This is not nonsense.”
