King is the eldest biological son of T.I and Tiny’s tribe. He was born on August 25th, 2004. He is a singer, rapper, and social media star with a large audience online. He has a large personality and loves anime and music so much that he raps under the name Kid Saiyan, a reference to Dragon Ball Z. King subscribes to the rock star lifestyle in a big way and seems to already have fallen on the wrong side of the tracks because of it. A m’ug sh’ot recently was released of the 18-year-old, who says he was pulled over and ar’rested while on his way to vacation.
Fans reposted it on social media and began clowning the young reality star saying he looked like a muppet or a cartoon character. He took to his IG to address some of the hate he received and explained that he was not looking for trouble or trying to be a ga’ngs’ter. “I’m sorry that a MF caught me while I was on my way to vacation. I’m sorry, I thought I was doing what a young na was supposed to do. I ain’t wanna be in there. Everybody that’s saying na trying to be ga’ngsta. I ain’t ask for the police to pull me over.”
Many people on social media joked that it was a matter of time before King got in trouble based on his trajectory. The young man has been known for his wild antics and some people reposted social media predictions from 2012 where people guessed he’d go to ja’il eventually. Some people called him out saying, “Being hood or trying to be hood should not be glamorized.. Please stop now”

His father, T.I, chimed in and spoke to his Instagram followers to let them know that he’s aware of his son’s behavior, but he has made some peace with his son’s decisions after years of trying to sway him. “If he gotda’mn keep that shit up, he’s going to pris’on. Ain’t no way around it, ain’t nothing I’mma be able to do about it,” T.I lamented. “‘Cause I know that energy. I was that energy. I know exactly how it’s going to turn out,” he continued before he was cut off by a fan who spotted him.
T.I. goes on to say that he believes his son is a good kid but just needs some more focus. The rapper says that fans need to stop telling him how to raise his son, as he has already been talking to King for months and has done all he can. Fans sided with him and said, “I agree with him on this. Life will be your teacher.”
