615x462

In an age when digital photography is a smartphone click away, it’s easy to forget that keeping visual memories wasn’t always so simple. Luckily for us, T.I. and Tiny have been wise about archiving their family photos, and in celebration of Father’s Day 2013, have offered to share snapshots from their personal collection.

Bring Em Out, Bring Em Out: T.I.’s Top 20 Songs

T.I.'s 20 Best Songs

Have you been watching this season of T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle? You should be. Tip’s parenting skills are on point, whether it’s encouraging his pack to diversify their hobbies or reminding them that the “gangster” lifestyle is not something they necessarily want to emulate. Although we’re seeing the casual, off-duty T.I.– a man who is responsible for bedtime and keeping his brood healthy–on screen that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about his collection of hits that remain in steady rotation.

One Week After Nearly Dying, Lil Wayne Is Well Enough To Bury The Hatchet With TMZ

One week ago today, Lil Wayne nearly kicked the bucket after sippin’ too much sizzurp (or was he poisoned?). TMZ erroneously reported that he was on his death bed and being read his last rites, but Weezy proved the naysayers wrong, emerging from his coma long enough to tweet “F**k TMZ.” However, over the course of the last week, he seems to have squashed his beef with Harvey Levin; he released an exclusive video this morning to TMZ proclaiming himself “good … a n***a more than good.”

GIF WALL: T.I.’s Dance Moves In “Blurred Lines” Are Our Everything

TIP Dancing Blurred Lines

We gave Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines” our #ONREPEAT stamp of approval yesterday, and not just because of Thicke’s falsetto croon or Pharrell‘s righteous mashup of Marvin and MJ. One of the best parts of the video, and possibly of the 2000s, is seeing T.I. straight-up clowning on the dancefloor, busting moves that we never ever thought him possible of. Read more…

#ONREPEAT: Robin Thicke’s Infectious “Blurred Lines” Has People Saying ‘TimberWHO?’

The gauntlet has been thrown down, y’all! After Justin Timberlake dropped a moody video for “Mirrors” on Tuesday night in which he doesn’t even show up until five minutes and 45 seconds have elapsed (!), Robin Thicke decided it was high time to bring some capital F.U.N. back to the R&B game. His new video for “Blurred Lines,” featuring starring performances from Pharrell, T.I. and a bevy of supermodels, has captivated the entire editorial floor here at VH1 this morning. Read more…

Gotye’s Voice May Have Been Taken Off T.I.’s “Memories Back Then” But Peep The “Somebody That I Used To Know” Bassline Sample

A lone woman on a track with three great emcees outshines her male peers. Allow us to introduce you to Kris Stephens. T.I.‘s “Memories Back Then” featuring B.o.B, Kendrick Lamar and Kris Stephens on the chorus should’ve made Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head. Originally the banger was titled “Somebody That I Used To Know” with a sample from Gotye from his song of the same name, according to Hip Hop Wired. It’s assumed a sample clearance is why we have the new version with vocals by T.I.’s artist Kris Stephens. And no shade to Gotye at all because we adore him, but we couldn’t imagine this track without Kris’s sultry voice. Read more…
