The scrutiny that comes with being on the media spotlight can often break a celebrity down. Reality TV in particular, can make or break a star right before an audience’s eyes.

Enter rapper T.I. and his other half Tiny. Through music, fashion and film, this celebrity couple have had considerable success in the entertainment industry. They each had reality shows separately and this will be the first time (along with their family) on camera as husband and wife.

At the private screening of the 1st episode of T.I.’s and Tiny’s new reality show T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, the self-proclaimed King of the South sat down with theGrio to discuss his remarks in Vibe about the LGBT community, sharing the spotlight with his kids, and why he doesn’t get offended when everyone joke about his prison time.
