T.I. may be famous but he’s a father first. The King of the South skipped out on the VMA awards this past weekend to host a party for his son, King, who turned 9 years old on August 25, 2013. The birthday boy had everything from a colorful cake to snakes for his birthday bash, which was held at Laser Voyage Cafe in Duluth, GA.

T.I.  recently told media that his image as an artist is progressively changing due to his status as a man approaching middle age, and not because of his prison record. “When I got introduced to the game, I was 19,” said the rapper. “Right now I’m 32. You could take anybody man, police, fireman, journalist, radio personality, actor, producer, from 19-32, he’s gonna change. But my change is publicized. So instead of connecting it to a natural, organic growth, [some critics] want to connect it to prison or something else.”

The rapper further explained, “Labels love hardcore T.I. That keeps the cash register ringing. They don’t want me to go to prison and caught though. They want me to be the Teflon Don, and I can’t blame them. That [stuff] sexy. But I’m older, man. I’m wiser, I’m calmer… I’m better, stronger. I’m ready for whatever tomorrow got coming.”

Tip and wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris welcomed King into the world in 2004. He is the eldest of their two sons together. The Harris’ parent six kids in all.
