T.I.‘s domestic life was broadcast for six entire seasons following his release from prison over a decade back, and the King of the South’s son King Harris has now offered his thoughts on the entire operation.
In an Open Thoughts interview published on Saturday (October 7), Harris discussed T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle with host Funny Marco. He said that while the show makes it look like he’s part of the T.I. and Tiny household, in reality that’s not the case.
“There’s a lot about that TV show that got people confused,” he said. “Because I live with my grandma. We’ll go to [T.I. and Tiny’s] house on like a weekend. They’ll say, ‘Hey we shooting today, we need y’all at the house.’
“They come get me [at] my grandma house. And right after we done, when the cameras go off, I’m right back to my grandma house.”

Last month, Harris came under fire after enlisting an unhoused person to take part in the controversial and dangerous “One Chip Challenge,” which involves eating an extremely spicy Paqui chip and then waiting “as long as possible” before drinking or eating anything else. The challenge has proven risky enough that Paqui started pulling its chips from stores.
Taking to his Instagram in early September, the controversial young rapper made a dig at the people who tried to “tear [him] down” while thanking his “real supporters and fans.”
”Out of All the times the internet tried to tear me down …. I held my spot down head up through it all and came out smiling on top,” he wrote with a crown emoji. “Shout out to my REAL supporters and fans for never switching up on me.”
A few days prior, Harris posted a video to social media in which he could be seen offering a homeless man a Paqui chip outside of a convenience store. T.I. and Tiny’s spawn then told the man that he’ll receive $50 if he ate the chip without drinking water for the next five minutes.
The man could be seen struggling from the pure heat of the chip, ultimately losing the challenge. Nevertheless, King Harris had a consolation prize for the man.
“He done lost though!” King could be heard saying at the end of the video. “But I done gave him $20.”
