AceShowbiz - T.I. appeared to make light of his son King Harris' arrest last month. The Atlanta rapper, who previously showed unconditional love for his son despite the arrest, was seen cracking jokes about the legal woes by making it a material in a stand-up routine.
In a video that circulated online, T.I. joked about his conversation with Boosie Badazz (Lil Boosie) after King and Boosie's son Tootie got arrested in August. While imitating the Baton Rouge rapper, Tip told the crowd, "N***a say, 'They done got King and Tootie, mane.' " He continued, "I say, 'What the f**k did they do?' 'They say, mane, they got iron, they got motherf**kin' drank... This thang ain't lookin' good.' "
Fans were loving his perfect impersonation of Boosie. "I laughed! The impersonation is hilarious…the 'mane' is spot on," one person commented. Similarly, someone else wrote, "Wait this impersonating actually funny."
Meanwhile, a user blasted King for trying to look like a tough boy by bragging about the arrest on social media. "Okay, and boosie and his son kept that to themselves. King only post about him being arrested , because he love attention , and he wanna be 'gangster' so bad," the person said.
This wasn't the first time for T.I. to address King's arrest. Earlier this month, the "Live Your Life" rapper vowed in an Instagram video to "love him through whatever it is that he's going through." In the clip, T.I. said he believed his son was "trying to convince himself of things as we all do as young men and even young women growing up." The emcee went on to say that the 18-year-old was just trying "to convince ourselves that we are certain things."
"I know my son. Think I ain't spoke to my son? Think I ain't told my son, his mama and his grandmama?" he told fans. "His a** is going to prison ... if he keeps this s**t up, his a** is going to prison."
"Ain't no way around it, ain't nothing I'mma be able to do about it," the 41-year-old continued. Noting that he's "already had that conversation" and "already made my peace with it," he added, " 'Cause I know that energy. I was that energy. I know exactly how it's going to turn out."
The hip-hop star also said that "King is a good kid chasing after the wrong s**t." He concluded, "I trust in God to deal with it the way he sees fit."
After King took to his Instagram account to reveal his run-in with the law, fans were trolling the young boy for seemingly looking so proud over the fact that he went to jail. "bro first time getting pulled over," an Instagram user commented, while someone else added, "He probably feels so accomplished now."
King was also accused of trying to be a gangster with someone commenting, "He wanna show us 'he bout that life.' " As King was seemingly arrested for a traffic violation, a person mocked him, "So for a traffic violation? Lol…"
