T.i. Explains Kids' Names
Rapper T.I. insists on giving his children names of high importance - because he wants to instill a sense of expectation in them.
The Live Your Life hitmaker has five offspring - sons King and Major with longterm girlfriend and former Xscape singer Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle, and three kids, named Domani, Messiah and Deyjah, from previous relationships.
And T.I. admits he has a penchant for lofty and regal names as he wants his children to always aim for the best.
In an interview with Blender magazine, he says, "My kids would be the best representation of what I meant to this Earth. As long as they (are) able to fulfil their dreams, then I did something right.
"I want them to have high expectations. Ambition. And what better way than through their names? If people call you King, you'll expect more of yourself."
