Rapper T.I. Has Made Peace With Son, King Harris’ Decisions: ‘There’s Nothing Me Or His Mom Can Do’

T.I. and Tiny Harris, renowned musicians and reality TV stars, have made a name for themselves with their expansive family.

Their blended household includes three biological children of their own and four children from prior relationships, totaling seven kids. These youngsters have grown up in the public eye, but one of the most recognizable figures among them is Clifford “King” Joseph Harris III, noted for his distinctive appearance and charismatic personality. King has been in the spotlight recently due to a recent encounter with law enforcement.

King, the eldest biological son of T.I. and Tiny, was born on August 25th, 2004. He’s not just part of the famous family; he’s a singer, rapper, and social media sensation with a substantial online following. His love for anime and music is evident, and he even adopts the moniker “Kid Saiyan,” an homage to the popular Dragon Ball Z series. King embraces a somewhat rebellious lifestyle, which has, unfortunately, led him into a recent scrape with the law. An 18-year-old mugshot of King made its way to the public, as he explained he was pulled over and arrested en route to a vacation.

The image quickly became a topic of discussion on social media, with some poking fun at King, likening his appearance to that of a muppet or a cartoon character. In response, he took to his Instagram to address the criticism, clarifying that he wasn’t seeking trouble or trying to portray himself as a gangster. He shared, “I’m sorry that a MF caught me while I was on my way to vacation. I’m sorry, I thought I was doing what a young man was supposed to do. I ain’t wanna be in there. Everybody that’s saying I’m trying to be gangsta. I ain’t ask for the police to pull me over.”

Social media was abuzz with predictions that King’s trajectory might lead to trouble, and some even reposted forecasts from as far back as 2012, speculating that he would end up behind bars. Others used the occasion to emphasize that glamorizing a “hood” or “gangster” lifestyle should not be encouraged.
