It’s pretty obvious that having details about your private life bared to the public can be difficult, but some artists like T.I. seem to have a pretty good grip on that. The Atlanta rapper puts his family life on display on the VH1 reality show “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle,” but a new single from his wife really had us scratching our heads for a second.
On “What the F— You Gon Do?” the former XScape singer croons about an absent lover, and the video really furthered that storyline. She uses a scene from the intro of “Family Hustle” where she and T.I. are lying in bed, but eventually the man next to her fades out. Was this a public shot at her husband? And what was T.I.’s reaction?
“No reaction,” T.I. told MTV News, before adding, “Comedy.” Clearly he didn’t want to go in-depth about this one.
Did Tiny at least run this by him before release? “Nah, she asked me and I said, ’nah I don’t wanna, I’ll wait [to see it] with the rest of the public.”
Always the diplomat, he went on to add, “I mean…I’ve been hearing very very good things about it, [from] people in the community, just saying that it’s a lot better than the stuff they’ve been hearing lately — so that’s good.”
“[Tiny] kinda has her own ideas about business so I stay out of it. She’s just beginning her spinoff TV show with the hairdresser.”
Well played, Tip.
