T.I. has been successful as an artist, actor, businessman, and philanthropist. However, the Atlanta native decided to try something new, stand-up comedy.
On Thursday, T.I.’s wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, posted a video to her Instagram stories of the “Bring Em Out” rapper telling jokes to what appeared to be a small crowd of people. “This guy @troubleman31 Add comedian to my loves resume,’ and he’s just getting started,” she wrote. In the now-deleted video, he talked about many topics, including relationships, infidelity, and his extensive catalog as an artist.
The Jasmine Brand reposted the video and garnered more than 119 comments and 494 likes.
While walking back-and-forth on stage, T.I. addressed the crowd and asked if a person could have friends with the opposite sex without crossing boundaries. “If you ever get into the area of cheating, that’s no man’s land” adding that “it’s all right to have friends.” He then asked, “Can you be in a committed relationship and still have a friend from the opposite sex.” Many of the women in the audience can be heard saying “Yes” but the Rapper added one condition saying, “Now, if you f-cking, it don’t count.”

In the clip, the crowd was slow to react to his comment. Then, he added another joke and said, “The ladies like, ‘Yes it do, it still count!’ See, y’all muthaf-ckas ain’t sh-t, man.” The musician gained a mixture of reactions after claiming that women are notorious cheaters.
He said, “Ladies cheat! They ain’t better than us, so don’t get into the game because the sh-t is gonna be fucked up for you.”
Instagram followers expressed their opinions on the 41-year-old’s comedy skills in the comment section.
One follower said, “Rapper. Gynecologist. Now stand up comedian … 🥴” Another commenter said, “There’s nothing wrong with trying something new and out of your comfort zone, good luck T.I., I love it.” “I get it now. When he said no artist out there could touch his catalog, he was joking. That is good to know because I thought he was high A.F.,” one follower wrote.
Despite the mixed reactions, Tiny remains the Rapper’s biggest fan.
