Hip-hop star TI shies away from the glitz and glamour of fame in favour of being a hands-on dad. The singer and actor - real name CLIFFORD HARRIS JR - is father to sons MESSIAH, six, DOMANI, five, and KING, one, and daughter DEYJAH, four. Despite selling drugs to survive as a teen in a rough quarter of Atlanta, Georgia, Ti is determined his children will have a vastly different upbringing. He explains, "I stole because I couldn't afford to get it. But they can." The RUBBER BAND MAN singer insists he is a normal dad who goes "to parent-teacher conferences and stuff." He adds, "You'll catch me in the grocery store, pumping my own gas, driving myself around. "I'm a real person. Stars are in the sky; people walk in the streets."
There's already an Oscars buzz surrounding this movie.
