8 mins read


T.I. has responded to recent sexual assault allegations in a new music video for his track What It’s Come To. 

The Atlanta rapper, 40, seemed defiant as he hit back at reports he and wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris, 45, are being investigated in multiple states for allegedly abusing more than 30 women.

In the nearly five-minute video, T.I, birth name Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., and Tiny try to paint their anonymous accusers as liars conspiring to cash in on their claims.

The piece starts with close-ups on an investigation board before advice from family therapist Syreeta Butler appears on screen saying: ‘A toxic person will create drama and then portray themself as a victim.’

Then, T.I. – nicknamed Tip – and Tiny enter the scene while images of bad press flash on screen.

His anger is clear in the song, where he spits lyrics like: ‘And they say hell have no fury like a woman’s scorn / F*** that, I’m crankin’ up the jury, who you lyin’ on shawty? / Extortion, is that what you got your mind on, shawty?’

Things flash back to the evidence board, where a woman – who T.I. labels ‘The Parasite’ – continues to plot.

She’s seen reaching out to other women with a text saying: ‘Who want get a bag & stay anonymous?’

Ferocious: His anger is clear in the song, where he spits lyrics like: 'And they say hell have no fury like a woman's scorn / F*** that, I'm crankin' up the jury, who you lyin' on shawty? / Extortion, is that what you got your mind on, shawty?'

After several ladies show interest, The Parasite asks ‘Okay, y’all got stories about Tip and Tiny?’ prompting one woman to say she’d ‘make up’ whatever dirt they needed.

Sealing the deal, the organizer texts back a string of money bag emojis and long with a kiss and heart eyes symbols.

The Parasite then creates her ‘game plan,’ which includes steps like ‘Create story’, ‘find fake victims’, and ‘huge payout.’

Next, she takes her evidence to a bumbling lawyer who is eager to collude with the accusers, perhaps taking a swipe at attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn, who is representing several alleged victims.

In a press conference, T.I. depicts his accusers as vain, showing them preen themselves and take selfies while the lawyer speaks.

But according to the Whatever You Like rapper’s tale, karma comes for the conspirators in the end as they’re seen getting flattened by a dumpster ‘7 days later.’

In May, it was reported T.I. and Tiny were under investigation by the LAPD, based on claims that they sexually assaulted and drugged a woman they met in a nightclub in 2005. 

The woman, who is only identified as ‘Jane Doe’ in court documents, met with detectives virtually in April, after her attorney, Tyrone Blackburn, sent a letter to local authorities calling for an investigation into her claims, according to The Daily Beast.

Blackburn later said that upwards of 30 women had come forwards with accounts of ‘forced drugging, kidnapping, rape, and intimidation in at least two states, including California and Georgia,’ which happened between 2005 and 2018.

Following reports the Harrises representation released a statement saying: ‘The Harrises have not spoken to or been contacted by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the Las Vegas Police Department (LVPD) or, indeed, any member of law enforcement from any other jurisdiction in the country.’

‘Even assuming the story in the Daily Beast is close to accurate, it appears the LAPD “accuser” has chosen once again to remain anonymous, thereby preventing us from being in a position to disprove or refute her allegations – or even examine them.’ 

‘Meanwhile, although we now appear for the first time to have the name of an “accuser” who supposedly filed a police report with LVPD, we have absolutely zero details about her or her claim,’ the statement ended.

T.I. is no stranger to legal trouble. In 2010 he served an 11-month sentence in federal prison for violating his probation by possessing illegal drugs and associating with a convicted felon. 

In 2018 Harris was arrested outside of the gated community where he lives for misdemeanor charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness in Henry County, Georgia after a guard allegedly refused to let Harris into the complex without a key.

And last September the Securities and Exchange Commission announced they were charging the rapper for promoting a fraudulent cryptocurrency.

Denial: Following reports the Harrises representation released a statement saying: 'The Harrises have not spoken to or been contacted by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the Las Vegas Police Department (LVPD) or, indeed, any member of law enforcement from any other jurisdiction in the country.'
