T.I. Defended by Son King Amid Backlash Over Snitching Confession

The 'Whatever You Like' rapper comes under fire after a resurfaced clip from his podcast shows him admitting to pinning a gun case on his late cousin back in the early 2000s.

AceShowbiz - T.I. has found support in his son amid backlash over his snitching confession. Having caught criticism against his father over a resurfaced clip from his "expediTIously" podcast, King Harris took to social media to defend his dad.

"Y'all could tell me I'm wrong or whatever. Y'all throwing out the wrong words," the 18-year-old said during an Instagram Live. "Look, listen. A snitch, a rat, a mouse is you putting somebody… If you put somebody else in trouble and you get out. Somebody has to do time and s**t like that for you [to be a snitch]."

In the said clip, which was from a 2020 episode of his podcast, Tip admitted to pinning a gun case on his late relative in the early 2000s. He said the scenario took place before he rose to fame. At that time, he and his cousin Toot were caught stealing upscale clothes.

"We at Lennox Mall parking lot, we unload the truck [of stolen clothes], I'm talking to the man while I'm making the play," he recalled. "This n***a looking at everything like, 'Man, y'all got, y'all got?!' 'Muthaf**ka, we done said what you want! Get this s**t and go!' "

"And right then, mall security [pull up] … We get in the car and we pull off, and then of course, they followed behind us and called the real police," the emcee continued. "So before we actually get on the expressway, the real police pull us over. I have a gun."

While Toot was killed during the court case, Tip managed to avoid jail time by claiming the gun belonged to his cousin. "We caught those gun cases, Toot died. My lawyer said, 'Well, you know, I could make everything go away if it was Toot's, it was Tremel's,' " he said. "After he had passed, I had a talk with him. Toot said, 'I'll take all the charges you got! If you can walk away free and put it on me, goddamn right! 'Cause I'll be damned if they gon' come and muthaf**king extradite me from here."
