Is T.I. A Strict Dad?
One could only imagine how busy hip-hop recording artist T.I. really is, considering all of his business ventures. He’s an actor and music producer, founder and co-executive officer of Grand Hustle Records, reality star and most recently an author.
But let’s not forget the most important role that T.I. plays every second of everyday. Husband to former Xscape member, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and father of six – 4 sons/2 daughters – including Tiny’s daughter from a previous relationship, T.I. has his hands full.
With everything he has going on, it’s important that T.I. lays down the law before exiting his gated mansion in downtown Atlanta.

“I have my moments. There are certain things that I am more strict about than others,” T.I. told 92.3 NOW/NYC’s Lulu & Lala.
It’s unclear if his sons have to abide by similar rules, but T.I. definitely is overprotective of his two daughters. The girls, who are 11 and 16-years-old, have a strict “not too tight” dress code as well as a reasonable curfew.
His girls may still be too young to be thinking about boys and parties, but they aren’t too young to start accomplishing their career aspirations.

T.I.’s teen is currently spending late nights in the studio working on her own music career. Despite her attempt to break into the music scene, he still manages to keep track of her whereabouts.
“Certain activities, I understand that you have to be out late doing. Like my oldest daughter, she’s a recording artist and she has to rehearse,” T.I. admits. “She has to be in the studio and I know studio is a late night deal. But after you leave the studio you come straight back home.”
“And I know when you left the studio. I bought the car, so I know where you are at all times. GPS works,” says T.I.
Let that be a warning.
