Tiny Harris revealed just how far back her recent troubles with T.I. really go when she explained her decision to release a song about their marriage.
A lot of people might not remember that Tiny was famous before she met Tip because of her success with Xscape. When she and Tip got together, though, she put her singing career on the back burner to be a wife and mom.
In between being T.I.’s ride-or-die chick and raising all of their babies, she’s still managed to grab some studio time. “I never stopped singing. I just didn’t share it,” she explained in an open letter to VIBE. “I’ve recorded a lot of music and just listened to it in the car or in my basement—never sharing it with anyone.”
Tiny could seemingly drop a whole new album whenever she’s ready to do it since she likely has years of material. She sent the rumor mill into overdrive last week when she finally decided to break from her routine and put out “What The F*ck You Gon’ Do.” On the track, she reminds her hubby T.I. that he’s got a lot to lose if she decides to walk because of all his alleged marital shenanigans.

“My new song is a statement,” Tiny said, adding that she didn’t just create the song this summer after months of negative reports on her marriage. “I wrote this song a year ago. I never planned to put it out. It was therapy for me. At the time, I was really going through a lot. Stuff that the public didn’t know and still doesn’t know.” (Sister 2 Sister Magazine).
Tiny looks at “What The F*ck You Gon’ Do” as her way of addressing all the rumors of T.I.’s infidelity and the speculation about the status of their relationship. “Over the past year, as things have unfolded publicly, people expected me to speak on it,” Tiny said, explaining why she chose to put the track out now. “I realized, I did speak on all of this, a year ago, in this song. So it made sense to release it.” (Sister 2 Sister Magazine).
Hints of Tiny and T.I.’s marital problems have been sprinkled all over social media, as the couple supposedly put subliminal messages to and about each other on Twitter and Instagram. People have criticized them for not talking it out in person, but Tiny assured that they’ve had some heart-to-heart conversations about their relationship behind closed doors. (Sister 2 Sister Magazine).
“I’m doing that too!” she stated. “You’re not in our house. You’re not in our conversations. You’re not in our bed at night. This song is not all there is to this relationship.” (Sister 2 Sister Magazine).
