In a recent episode of his podcast, ExpediTIously, T.I. sat down with fellow rapper Fabolous where they were honest with their feelings about a private matter.
The pair opened up about their adult stepdaughters dating famous rappers. T.I. sees the 23-year-old singer and singer Zonnique Pullins, who is the daughter of Tiny Harris as his own.
The diva is in a serious romance with Baltimore rapper Bandhunta Izzy. As for Fabolous, his stepdaughter, 21-year-old Taina Williams, is dating Chicago rapper G Herbo.
Fabolous and T.I. said while they are fully aware of the lifestyle that comes with being a famous MC, they are not jumping to the conclusion with the young rappers.
Fabolous stated: “Of course, I was watchful, but I tried not to be judgmental ’cause I know how we’re judged. I know from just walking in a room and you having the title of a rapper, automatically, the bad boy, you did wrong, infidelity. And that’s not to say those titles — every stereotype comes from experience. It doesn’t come out of anywhere, so I do understand it. But at the same time, let me not judge him until I know him. That’s what I wanted to do with him.”
As for T.I., he had the following to say: “That makes sense. I have a completely different approach. With me, it’s f–k this ni–a ’til he shows me otherwise. Do you dig what I’m saying? I must say, the young man that she’s dealing with, he’s a cool cat. He’s a respectable young man. I even went so far as to check his background, where he’s from, and his pedigree seems to come back without a tarnish. So I don’t have anything negative to say about him. However, I am uncomfortable with what may potentially transpire in the future. Now that’s my discomfort exclusively. I don’t share that discomfort with her or him. I try not to let my level of discomfort bleed over into their happiness. I just remain quietly uncomfortable, to myself [laughs].”
T.I. concluded by saying that he hopes his baby girl and Bandhunta Izzy get married and live happily ever after: “I’ll admit this, they’ve lasted a lot longer than I expected, so at this point, I’m rooting for them to go all the way.”
The young women seem to have things under control.
