T.I. Labeled Alleged Victims As 'Toxic'? Rapper Addresses Accusations In New Music Video
Rapper T.I., whose real name is Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., releases a new music video despite him and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris being investigated for sexual abuse allegations.
The music video for his song "What It's Come To" features news reports about the accusations brought to him and Tiny.
At the beginning of the video, a couple of shots feature what appears to be an investigation board that includes printed-out copies of reports about the couple. The board is complete with notes as well as yarns that are connected to one another. (Watch the full music video below)
Before the track plays, a quote from family therapist Syreeta Butler appears on the screen that reads "A toxic person will create drama and then portray themself as a victim." seemingly addressing his alleged victims.
Both the rapper and Tiny appeared in the video.
The lyrics of the song also seem to be referencing his accusers, the line reads "I'm cranking up the jury, who you lying on, shawty?" he rapped. "Extortion, is that what you got your mind on, shawty?" he added.
The couple had also questioned the credibility of their accusers in a scene. As seen in the video, a couple of women were featured texting each other saying "Ok y'all got stories about Tip and Tiny?" a girl texted. "Oh I got all kinds of bullsh*t I can make up..." another woman replied.
In the last part, a man, who appears to be a lawyer representing the women, held a press conference. He was later crushed by a falling piano in the end.
