Eighteen-year-old Domani Harris is definitely becoming an influencer in his own right; although, the talented teen unquestionably gives props to his father, mega star T.I. Harris, he also wants others to recognize that he is growing up into his own person, doing things his way, letting his light shine.
With the release of his project “Amygdala”, the younger Harris is definitely taking listeners to a new level beyond that of his father’s style.
The young rapper took time out of his busy schedule to sit down with Newsweek and talk about everything from his debut album to giving advice to up-and-coming artists. Check out what the young rising star had to say to the magazine below.
What He Wants Fans To Know
I’m just a real chill person. I eat well, very sensitive, mentally. I care about a lot of people. I’m human so I might meet people, might not be feeling good at the moment and shake somebody’s hand or accidentally say something, accidentally look this way, you know. Then when I walk away I be like ‘dang why did I do that?’ You know, that’s just little stuff. I overthink things.
On Father’s Influence
On TV or on stage, that’s T.I. but really that’s Pops, you know. He’s just like any father, but what makes him different is that with all the stuff that he has going on, he still exceeds expectations with his work ethic, how many people he takes care of. He takes care of so many people. It’s just how he handles himself, how he carries himself. I’ve been watching that my whole life. I got a good teacher.
Advice To Newcomers
My advice will be to stop making excuses, stop thinking that you have to have the same tools someone else was given, or the same shoes somebody walked in because y’all on a different path. And just be yourself, like really you’ve been told all this stuff before. People think that it just sounds so easy, so they think it got to be more to it. It’s really not. Be yourself, and whatever you do make sure you love doing it because if you don’t even if you do blow up, it’s not going to last because you don’t really love doing it. So be yourself, make sure you love what you’re doing and all the rest will come.
