During the podcast interview, Big Bank asks, “What’s up with Domani?” Referring to the fact that T.I.’s 19-year-old son Domani Harris had not appeared in the most recent season of the show.
T.I. explains that his son, who also raps, had decided he no longer wanted to be associated with the reality show.
“That man gave up − what was it for one season? − I think it was $80,000 $85,000,” the “Go Get it” rapper said. “They told him all you got to do is show up, just for being in the background.”
Even with production offering to limit his camera time, Domani Harris reportedly preferred not to be filmed for the show. The up-and-coming hip-hop artist recently released the song “The Truth.” In addition to following in his father’s musical footsteps, he also took up acting like his dad. The junior Harris appeared in “SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical.”
T.I. said his son wants to embark on his own career without the ties to the reality show or his famous father.
“He real adamant about making his own path, you know what I’m saying,” T.I. explained. “You know he has a keen intent to separate his legacy from my legacy.”
The rapper said he respects his son’s vision, but it’s not the choice he would have made as a developing artist or teenager.
“I wouldn’t have given up any money,” T.I. said. “I wouldn’t have let no money slide by, but I get it.”
