Xscape Tiny is back y’all!

The seemingly estranged wife of T.I. (can we say that?) has just dropped a new solo single and she’s very much giving us a ’90s R&B vibe. The track, #WTFYGD, which is hashtag for what the f*ck you gone do, will no doubt add fuel to she and T.I.’s troubled marriage fire as the chorus very explicitly says “don’t be sleeping on me/I don’t wanna ride out on you babe/ All I wanna do is stay down for you/ But you make it so hard not to give up on you/ as she asks, “if I leave, then what the f*ck you gone do?” Pretty sure who she’s asking.

Listen to the song below and tell us what you think. Pass or Play?

TI and Azealia Banks

Instagram

We told you today that Azealia Banks made some disrespectful comments about Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and Tiny responded. But she’s not the only one.

Although Banks deleted the Tweet, T.I. still saw it and took to Instagram to respond, which was one fine, but then he took things to the next level with a threat:

But Banks isn’t backing away slowly. The rapper went on her own tirade on Twitter:

“The ni**a shouting bad b***hes this bad b***hes that, is almost always at home with some busted bumpkin.”

“rap is not real. These ni**as are all fronters.”

“But your wife has meth face.”

“And your wife can’t read.”

“I saw you backstage at Kanye and you had nothing to say.”

“I stood next to you ON PURPOSE. To see if you would say something.”

“I’m taller than you in my heels.”

“Come see me ni**a.”

“And come by yourself.”

this grown a** man with kids went and cropped his favorite part of the atlantis video and really threatened to put hands on me LOL”

niggas really do be hella pu**y. u went to jail a million times for guns and drugs and are gonna turn around and threaten some girl.”

“yea i shouldn’t of said it, BUT SO WHAT, IT WAS FUNNY, really had to take it to threats?”

This is not a good look for you black man, it really isn’t.”

you’ve already been to jail for drugs and guns, your wife can’t read… can you be more of a statistic?”

You see what i mean when i say hip-hop is a minstrel show?” 

I BET HE WON’T DO S**T. But sit and simmer, and watch the rest of the atlantis video.”

She also claimed that she was going to sue T.I. for his threats, even saying “Ni**as love jail,” but again, she deleted those tweets.

I’m still trying to figure out why Banks brought Tiny into her issues with T.I. And while I can appreciate him trying to defend his wife, the whole “people fall down stairs” thing was the wrong thing to say on a public platform. Just saying. But all in all, both of these individuals have to do a lot better.

Azealia Banks Takes Jab At T.I. And Tiny On Twitter; Tiny Responds

Harlem-born and bred MC Azealia Banks is reportedly taking shots at someone again, but this time, it’s both T.I. and Tiny.

If you didn’t know their background, Banks had some words for T.I. in 2012 when she made some comments about T.I.’s protege, Iggy Azalea, that he wasn’t too fond of. He said this in an interview about Banks:

“If you spend half of your day getting money and the other half of your day counting money, you ain’t got no time in your day to worry about nobody else.”

Of course, Banks didn’t take too kindly to that, responding to him in a long message where she basically told him to stop getting involved in women’s issues and called him corny (and used quite a few expletives and what not). That would be one of the first times they had a back and forth (him on a more public platform like radio, Banks on Twitter), but it wouldn’t be the last.

As I said, that was in 2012. Fast forward to now. According to AllHipHop and Bossip, Banks took to Twitter yesterday to take a jab at T.I., his wife, Tiny, and his new song “No Mediocre,” which is about wanting the best looking woman on his arm. It features Iggy Azalea.

T.I. has not responded to such statements, but Tiny did post this on her Instagram late last night:

Tiny II

 

As I’ve said in the past, Banks has bars and if you give her music a chance you might like it. But anything else that doesn’t have to do with the music is always foolishness that takes away from her talents. It’s a shame really…Oh, and good comeback Tiny!

Despite the fact that both T.I. and Tiny have been very public, via social media, about their relationship issues, T.I. is now saying that folks need to watch what they say about him and his people. Quite a few individuals often comment on his posts on Instagram, especially ones that hint at discontent, to give him relationship advice, to scold him for his treatment of Tiny, and to take some take shots at his wife too. Knowing this, the rapper took to Instagram this week to tell people, as Will Smith would say, “Mind ya bizness! Just mind ya bizness!”

He posted this:

TI

“Regardless of whateva….. I allow disrespect of me & mines #NEVER !!!!! Watch ya mouth & mind ya Bizness…. Best treat it like a football game…. Observe safely from da sidelines & stay off da field,unless u wanna get HIT!!!! #nuffsaid #hustlegangoverrrrthang”

He also posted this picture of himself below with a caption quoting Martin Luther King, Jr. Yes, he went deep on ‘em:

Instagram

Instagram

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he STANDS in moments of comfort & convenience, but where he STANDS at times of challenge & controversy.” – Dr. M.L.King Jr.” I know where I STAND. Most cats nowadays be some ‘sitdown’a**’ni**az’!!!!!#StandUpGuy #hustlegangoverrrrthang”

*Deep sigh*

I just can’t with the subliminal messages from adults. Get off social media and handle your business and then maybe other people won’t have to be on the sidelines talking about it. Just saying. #commonsenseoverrrrthang

Did Y’all See? Is It Time For Tiny To Be Done With T.I.?

The big news of last weekend was that T.I. got into a fight with Floyd Mayweather after spotting the boxing champ out with his seemingly estranged wife Tiny. Though Floyd came out to say nothing was going on between him and the rapper’s wife and even apologized for somewhat provoking T.I., ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith seemed to think Tiny was to blame here, suggesting that if she keeps this behavior up she may soon find herself a divorced woman. We guess he missed the rumors of infidelity that have been following T.I. for the past several months…

In lieu of that — as well as Tiny’s status as the quintessential ride-or-die chick — we’re wondering if it might be time for her to file those papers herself before things getting any more out of control, not to mention disrespectful, on social media or in real life.

That’s what Ne-Yo and Monyetta Shaw did — parting ways before they even made it down the aisle because the R&B singer admitted to having a “problem” and knew it would be a struggle for him to remain faithful to the mother of his kids. Is that a respectable way to bow out? Or should these men put their partners before other you know what? Check out our editors weighing in on this subject and share your thoughts below.

 

Stephen A. Smith Slams Tiny For Publicly Bashing T.I.: ‘The Next Call She May Get Is From A Divorce Attorney’

Everybody and their mamas have something to say about the fight that went down last weekend between T.I. and Floyd Mayweather Jr., and sports commentator Stephen A. Smith is no different. During a recent appearance on ESPN’s “First Take,” the outspoken TV personality offered his two cents and as usual, it was very entertaining.

“Be cool and learn how to walk away,” Stephen advised. “One of the things that I will say about Floyd Mayweather Jr. compared to most is that he’s relatively cool and to himself in public. All of that bravado you see with the 24/7 promoting his fights and what have you, Floyd doesn’t roll like that in public. Usually, it’s trouble coming to him. It’s not the other, which is why you have those bodyguards with you all the time. Everybody knows how much money Floyd makes because Floyd ain’t shy about letting you know, but the problem is that usually invites trouble.”

Stephen went on to address some comments made by Tiny via her Instagram account, where she accused T.I. of being jealous. He also slammed the reality star for publicly siding with Floyd as opposed to her husband.

“I’m not going to accuse T.I. of being jealous or whatever, regardless of what his wife says because I’m trying to figure out why would the wife go on Twitter and dime out her husband like that? That doesn’t make sense to me because even if it were true, that is yo’ husband. And he is supposed to take precedent over everybody else. Even if he’s wrong, that’s something that you tell in private. You don’t tell the world that he was wrong. That’s the dude you go home to, that you have a family with. So that’s a different subject.”

For a moment he caught himself, and made it clear that he’s not looking to slander Tiny in any way, but made it clear that if she were his wife, he’d probably be divorcing her.

“I’m certainly not trying to impune her integrity or reputation in any way. I’m just talking about principles. If I have a wife and that wife goes on Twitter and tells the world she thinks I’m wrong, the next call she may get is from a divorce attorney. With a wife like you, what I need one for? You got to go!”

‘I’m Not Sleeping With That Girl:’ Floyd Mayweather Speaks On T.I. Fight

While you were off celebrating you holiday weekend, several scandals were brewing—including one that involved troubled hip hop couple T.I. and Tiny. In case you missed it, footage surfaced of T.I. and Floyd Mayweather engaged in a vicious brawl at Fat Burgers in Las Vegas early Sunday morning. It appears that the fight ensued after T.I. confronted Floyd about his relationship with T.I.’s wife, Tiny. However, according to Floyd, things between he and Tiny are strictly platonic.

“Only person I wanna apologize towards is Tiny,” the boxing champion told NecoleBitchie. “I said something like “control your b-tch” and I don’t want to say that about Tiny. So I do apologize to Tiny because she cool people, man. She cool. She never been disrespectful to me. Shekinah never been disrespectful to me. I’m going to continue to support Tiny and Shekinah cause they’re cool people and I don’t got nothing against them. So I apologize for that.”

“I’m not sleeping with that girl [Tiny] and I told that man before,” he continued. “But if I was, talk to her about that, don’t talk to me about that. But I’m not going to be disrespectful because I’m not going to sleep with a married woman. Now if she was divorced…I still wouldn’t do that because I’m cool with her and we have a real cool and cordial relationship and sometimes sex can mess a good friendship up. And basically, I don’t want to f-ck up a good relationship that I have with a person. So whatever I said, “stole your b-tch…take your b-tch” or whatever, I apologize to Tiny and all of her children and T.I.’s children for saying that. I want to apologize to the children and Tiny and Tiny’s family for saying what I said.”

Floyd also explained those now-infamous Instagram photos of himself and Tiny.

“I been knowing Tiny before T.I. I’ve never slept with her, I never kissed her, never touched her in no inappropriate way. Her friend Shekinah wanted to come to the [May 4th] fight, she brought Tiny with her. They came to the fight.

After the fight was over Saturday night, Sunday they came over my mother’s house. My mother had a big, big party for me. They came over and showed love. They came over to my house all cool, all respect. Hang out with The Money Team, my crew. Everybody was cordial. No disrespecting type. After that, I guess she put a picture up on Instagram of her at the fight so I guess he [T.I.] was feeling some type of way.”

Floyd went on to reveal that T.I. confronted him a few weeks before yesterday’s brawl.

“[T.I] came to me when I was in New York. He stepped to me when I was at the jewelery store like, ‘Yo, let’s go outside and talk.’ We went outside to talk, but he talked about, basically, ‘These girls tryna play us against each other.’ I said, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re talking about your wife?’ I never put up a picture of her on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. I was basically like, ‘Listen. I’m letting you know I ain’t got…me and your wife don’t have nothing…if you think so.’”

As for Sunday’s altercation, Floyd says:

“So Memorial Day weekend, a lot of people come out to Las Vegas. Tiny and Shekinah was out here. They come to my party last night. They cool. Everything is cool. We was at the strip club. Everything was cordial. We having fun. I throw my daughter [Iyanna] a big [14th] birthday bash today. I’m eating at Fatburger and next thing you know, he walk in talking about we need to talk again. And then I told him, ‘You need to get the f-ck outta my face.’”

After exchanging a few more words, the fight ensued.

“People got to pushing and a riot kinda broke out. And then a bunch of chaos and that was basically it. Because, like I said before, he probably does some foolish things, but he ain’t no damn fool to swing on me. Like, you must’ve forgot what I do for a living. He had a totally different look on his face.”

The altercation has fueled festering rumors that the reality TV couple is grappling with marital issues.

Groupie Reportedly Claims T.I. Spent Mother’s Day With Her—Not His Wife, Tiny

As rumors continue to swirl about T.I. & Tiny’s marital woes, the gossip circuit has uncovered some more evidence that seems to point to relationship turmoil for the reality TV couple. According to gossip page The Shade Room, a well-known Atlanta groupie by the name of Lexyy put the rapper on blast via Facebook, insisting that he spent Mother’s Day night with her—not his wife, Tiny. She’s even supposedly claiming that he cooked her dinner.

“TEA ALERT: Oh my….a well-known groupie in her circle, Lexyy, just posted a picture of her and T.I. @troubleman31 to her Facebook page,” the gossip page wrote. “In the caption, she claimed T.I. cooked her dinner last night. We were like, say what??? Last night was Mother’s Day! However, there is food on the counter, they are in the kitchen of somebody’s house, and they have the red plastic cup sitting on the counter and there might be some DRANKKK in it [...] The story isn’t far-fetched, since rumors have been going around about issues in his marriage with Tiny.”

Here’s the photo in question, by the way.

While the photograph is enough to raise a few questions, there’s a possibility that there’s a whole lot more to this story. It’s unclear if the couple were together at all on Mother’s Day, but the “Whatever You Like” rapper is noticeably absent from all of the photos Tiny shared that day.

And in other Tiny news, the “Family Hustle” star and her BFF Shekinah recently released a remix to K. Camp’s “Cut Her Off.” The lyrics read:

“I know that’s your man hoe, he ain’t got no bands though.
Steady stalkin’ a b*tch page wondering how did she do that?
That Instagram boutique sh*t you got on b*tch is wack.
I’m playin’ around in them M’s and they say that p*ss* fat.
Ridin’ around in my city in the back of my Maybach.
Now you know a b*tch spoiled, what you gon do with that?
In and out this country, b*tch I got stamps.”

Uh Oh! T.I. Discusses Marital Problems In New Song

Man…some of y’all swear that T.I. and Tiny aren’t going through something. The couple themselves, claim they’re cool. But after that very public argument at the Grammys, we’ve been watching them…closely. There are the randoms on Instagram, which Tiny personally handled, the beach booty shots that T.I. didn’t like and most recently the news that he purchased another house…to be closer to the studio.

Now, there seems to be more incriminating evidence that would seem to suggest The Family Hustle couple is on the outs with one another right now. T.I. recently released his remix to Jhene Aiko’s “The Worst” and the lyrics seem to be aimed directly at his wife Tiny, addressing all of the stories we just linked to above.

Well maybe I’ma just go spend $4 mill on crib…
All the kids wanna know where they little brother’s at
Got damn I ain’t even told my mother yet.
Yeah, I know I was clowning
I know you wasn’t just going to take that laying down and
I’ll be the first to say it, I was dead wrong…
But if it isn’t worth shooting my in the head don’t
take to social to try me
Putting folk all in our BI all on IG
Nah, I don’t believe it, I don’t wanna see it
Maybe I wake up tomorrow it’ll be deleted
You out the country in bikinis on beaches
While I’m in the studio doing features like…

Hmm…sounds pretty damning to me. I mean, who else could he be talking about? The only thing I could see though, is that this is all a hoax, a verse to make fun of all the rumors that are surrounding the couple right now. But I don’t know…

Anyway, you can take a listen to the entire song here and let us know what you think? What’s going on with these two?

It All Goes Down In The A: Tiny To Produce “The Real Hairstylists Of Atlanta”

Tiny at the press conference with her niece who handled the PR.

Tiny is trying to line these pockets honey. In addition to the play on “The Simple Life” reality show she told us about last month, she’s announced that she has another show coming soon.

Yesterday, the former Xscape member and star of the show “T.I. & Tiny: A Family Hustle” announced in a press conference alongside VH1, that she’s executive producing a new reality show called “The Real Hairstylists of Atlanta.”

Dwight Eubanks, NeNe’s old friend from RHOA was a host of the event where Tiny revealed that she’ll partner with creator and producer Shante Traynham, and executive producer Mimi Carpenter to bring the show to your television screen.

This should be…interesting. Atlanta is a hot bed for these reality shows. I’ll have to wait and see the pilot before I decide if I’m here for it or not. I have to admit the hair salon culture has and always will be intriguing, especially in Atlanta where they’re so extra and often tacky with it. But it would be a lie to say that the market is not completely saturated by realty shows and we’ve seen the hair thing done before. It will really all depend on whether or not Tiny is able to bring something new to the table. No word on which network the show will be featured on but we’ll keep you posted.

What do you think about this new show, is this something you think you’ll watch?
