I'm not quite sure how I feel about tje self proclaimed "king of the south" doing a family based reality show. I appears that everyo e is feeling the effects of the downed economy. It might have more to do with his continuing legal woes that render him incarcerated for long stretches of time and unable to market his brand. TI was, and still is one of my favorite rappers but I am not too interested in the domestic aspect of his life. That being said, I can't knock the hustle. A mans gotta eat somehow and no matter how degrading it is, I guess its still better han having to do a stint on Celebrity Fear Factor. I have heard one relatively decent song from him since his most recent release. The name of the song is 'Im Flexin". He also apparently did a song with the very wholesome Taylor Swift at one if her concerts and it was featured on his reality show. TI is not the first rapper to use a reality show to promote hisself. Other rappers include Snoop Dogg, Flava Flave, and Vanilla Ice. It seems to be a long running fad that shows no sign of ending. For me, it is simply a situation where I would rather see the artist in their natural element rather than a low cost mtv or vh1 reality series yet at the same time I wish these artists the best of luck and hope that they accomplish whatever it is that they set out to do.
