We’ve always admired T.I. for legitimate reasons (great dad and husband, amazing musician) and admittedly superficial ones (he’s a good-looking man). So we were excited to see him land the cover of Jet magazine this month for all the reasons above. And not only does Tip grace the cover, but he’s the subject of an in-depth interview that covers everything from his trouble with the law to his bustling acting career, including his stint on Boss. (Our favorite quote of the article may be his Kelsey Grammer geek-out where he explains “Man, Cheers and Frasier were a huge chunk of my life.”).
And then of course, there’s the new image that he’s gained from, yes, being the adorable, doting dad we see on T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle. He explains that the show isn’t meant to “coerce the public into believing our image is one way,” he’s just showing off who he’s evolved into. Image or not, all we know is that we love the show and we love who he is no matter what.
